What are Pressure Ulcers?
Pressure Ulcers, more commonly known as bedsores, are open wounds on the skin that occur on bony areas of the body. Most patients may find they have bedsores or pressure ulcers on their backs, hips, ankles, and buttocks, as these are the areas of the body that have the most pressure on them when patients are unable to be as mobile as they once used to be. Pressure ulcers and bedsores are best treated when caught early. If you believe you are suffering from pressure ulcers, we encourage you to Contact us and schedule your private consultation with one of our expert team members at your earliest convenience.
How Do I Know if I Have Pressure Ulcers?
Common symptoms of pressure ulcers that many of our patients find they experience include:
- Pain in the affected area
- Skin discoloration
- Open wounds on the skin
- Skin that's softer or firmer than the surrounding area
What Causes Pressure Ulcers?
Pressure ulcers and bedsores most commonly occur when patients spend most of their time in one spot, whether it be in a bed or a chair. Patients who suffer from this condition tend to be older patients who are unable to be as mobile as they once used to be or differently-abled patients who may have a hard time moving parts of their bodies on their own. Bedsores and pressure ulcers may be made worse with poor eating habits that influence the condition of your skin for the worse, including diets that lack vitamins, minerals, and naturally-occurring collagens.
What Treatments are Available for Pressure Ulcers?
There are many treatments for pressure ulcers that our expert medical team members can provide for you, including:
- Topical and oral medications
- Specialized dressings and therapies
- Dietary and nutrition consultations
- Minimally invasive and microsurgery
How Much Does Treatment for Pressure Ulcers Cost?
The cost of your pressure ulcer treatment will vary depending on the type of treatment you receive, the extent of treatment needed to achieve your desired results, and your health insurance coverage. StrideWoundCare is also happy to offer financing options through CareCredit® that allow you to pay for your treatments at your convenience.
