Negative Pressure Wound Therapy in Diabetic Foot Wounds

For one of the other PICO presentations on 09.09.16, Stephanie Muther presented on the topic of wound care. More specifically, treatment of diabetic foot wounds.  Most people do not consider this a glamorous part of a physical therapist’s job, but I want to make sure everyone understands it is a very necessary part of our job, and that I am thankful for those physical therapists treating these patients.

In my opinion, they alone are making everyone’s job a heck of a lot easier! They are extraordinary at this type of care. I hope to learn more about wound care because I understand that it can be an instrumental part of my future job depending on what setting I choose to go into.
