Regional Medical Center (RMC) Wound Clinic aims to educate the public on common foot wounds and treatment during the month of April. Right now, nearly 7 million Americans are living with a chronic wound and more than 2 million of those are suffering from diabetic foot ulcers.

RMC’s Wound Clinic specializes in treating chronic foot and leg wounds that are often caused by underlying conditions such as diabetes and vascular diseases. Dana Whalen, RMC Wound Clinic provider shares, “There are several different things you can do to improve foot health like washing your feet everyday, trimming your toenails, wearing proper socks with your shoes and staying active to increase circulation.” 

If you notice any problems or irregularities with your feet, please alert your primary healthcare provider. For more information or to schedule an appointment with the RMC Wound Clinic please call 563-927-7511.
