The Time Factor: Accelerating Healing in Venous Leg Ulcers with Compression Therapy

Time plays a crucial role in the management of venous leg ulcers. These chronic wounds, if left unaddressed, can worsen over time, leading to larger, more complex issues. Early intervention is key, as it improves the chances of successful healing, prevents complications, and reduces the economic burden on healthcare systems. Moreover, timely treatment enhances patients' quality of life by alleviating pain, discomfort, and emotional distress associated with these persistent ulcers.
