Wound Care, Burns, and Frostbite Treatment
With the winter season always around the corner in Chicago, we hope you are ready to face the chills. It can get pretty dangerous outside and unsurprisingly, wounds, burns, circulatory issues, and frostbites can afflict an unfortunate few.
Falls on sidewalks and parking lots become more prevalent during extreme weather conditions. Slips and falls can eventually lead to tears, painful abrasions, and open sores. Also, sitting closer to heat sources to fight cold can result in wounds or burns, and excessive or persistent exposure to cold and moisture can form frostbites.
Those who have diabetes, high blood pressure, poor circulation issues, and patients with limited sensation are more likely to miss these wounds in the first place. For these reasons, wintertime foot care becomes especially critical, and timely diagnosis and treatment of wounds, burns, and frostbites remain critical.
If you or a loved one is concerned about your foot care practices, have sustained a winter wound or burn, or are experiencing a frostbite injury, get in touch with our Chicago podiatrist for comprehensive care.
At Bucktown Foot and Ankle (BFAC), we don’t just help patients understand their situation; we also assist in how they can prevent future injuries. Furthermore, we offer advanced treatments like PRP and hyaluronic injections that have shown significant improvement in the wound-healing processes of our previous patients. These procedures are safe, widely used, and effective and also help reduce subsequent scarring.
