Wound Care

There are many modalities that are used to treat wounds that have not responded to traditional treatment. Sometimes wounds do not heal due to infection, inadequate nutrition, poor circulation, and diseases that slow down healing.

At Ace Physiotherapy, the modalities that we use to treat for hard to treat wounds include ultraviolet radiation, laser, ultrasound and electrical stimulation. Your physiotherapist can work with you to select the best modality that can be used to treat your wound.

1) Ultraviolet Radiation
Ultraviolet C is ultraviolet radiation that cannot be obtained from direct sunlight. Ultraviolet is used to help reduce infection, promote cell activity and increase blood flow and formation of new blood vessels.

2) Laser Therapy
Laser therapy is a form of light therapy. We use a multi-radiance laser that has many different wavelengths that stimulates the cells that are involved in healing.

3) Ultrasound
Therapeutic ultrasound can promote tissue healing by forming new blood vessels and laying down collagen which is the building block of soft tissue including skin.

4) Electrical Current
Electrical current stimulates the body’s own electrical potential. By applying electrical current to the wound, cells that are responsible for healing come to the wound area and help the wound to heal.
