Venous Insufficiency and Edema
A patient with venous insufficiency and edema (swelling) came to us today and received manual lymphatic drainage, diruetics, and will eventually continue with a special compression device at home called Venoneumatic Compression in order to fully rectify his problem. Encompass HealthCare specializes in the treatment of non healing wounds, often resulting from veneous problems, infections, trauma, and other wounding incidents. We do this in our outpatient setting so patients can receive their treatment and go back to work, home, etc.
Venous insufficiency can be caused by a multitude of reasons and at Encompass HealthCare, we’re experts in “everything wound care.” Medical Director Dr. Ruben has 3 Board Certifications, enabling him to fully understand why wounds heal and why they don’t. Having this expertise gives our patients the benefit of healing wounds from the inside out. Oftentimes, wounds aren’t healing because of internal problems within the patient’s body. We look at all factors relating to wound healing.
