Chronic and non-healing wounds can result from a number of factors, including diabetes, poor circulation, trauma, vascular disease, and immobility (which can lead to pressure ulcers, commonly known as “bed sores”). An estimated eight million Americans suffer from chronic wounds. Wounds come from a variety of different medical conditions, and they don’t heal for many different reasons.
No. In fact, Indiana Wound Care prefers to work with your physician or medical specialist during the treatments. While you’ll be receiving treatment for your wound from the Indiana Wound Care, you’ll continue to receive all of your routine care from your primary physician.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a safe and evidence-based treatment proven to speed the healing process in certain types of wounds. In fact, many patients find it relaxing! The chambers are equipped with televisions and comfortable seating. A typical course of treatment involves the patient spending about 90 minutes a day in the chamber five days per week over a four-to-six-week period.
