Chronic wound care is a growing medical problem, reaching epidemic proportions worldwide. Even after the wound has healed, wound recurrence remains a significant issue, with rates approximating 40% in 6 months after healing. The authors evaluate a retrospective analysis of their wound care clinics healing and recurrence rates. The authors evaluate the efficacy of varying physical modalities on preventing recurrence of wounds after their healing. The authors take their evaluation out to one year.
