How can therapy help with wound care?
When your body is healing from a wound, it is important to make sure the affected area is able to function at its optimum levels. Our therapist can also help implement controlled exercise programs early on in your recovery period, in order to improve your flexibility, range of motion, and overall mobility.
Additional actions that can be taken to enhance the healing of your wound include:
- Taping/wrapping the affected area. Our therapist may recommend keeping the wound wrapped during its healing process in order to avoid additional strain to the affected area. In some cases, a special gel or topic ointment may be used inside of the wrap, which can further reduce your swelling and tension, while simultaneously complementing the healing process.
- Using special gloves or topical treatments. Especially for burns, it is likely that your therapist will recommend wearing special gloves and applying a topical treatment to the area every day. This will help keep the affected area safe from harmful environmental factors (such as sunlight or rough materials) and will enhance the healing process. In some more severe cases, your therapist may recommend surgical correction for burns.
