I highly recommend Andresen Active Healthcare to everyone! Due to multiple injuries from 3 separate accidents, I have been to many different Chiropractors through the years and Dr. Andresen is definitely one of the best there is.  I know how important it is to find a good Chiropractor because I have been to bad ones before.  From those horrible experiences, I have learned that a good Chiropractor: takes x-rays when needed; explains why he is doing things; encourages you to ask questions and takes the time to answer them; performs re-assessments at each appointment and adapts his treatments accordingly; and teaches you ways to increase your healing ability in between appointments.Dr. Andresen does all of these things and much more. The therapy Dr. Andresen provides has greatly decreased my suffering and continues to help me to avoid surgery on my back and neck. The customized foot orthotics he prescribed have given me the ability to continue walking. He was willing to treat me while wearing medical gloves in order to advance the healing of my shingles. He has decreased the pain and swelling of my wrists and ankles. He adjusted my shoulder so that I can use my left arm again. Additionally, he has stopped some of my migraines while in progress. Therefore, I highly recommend Dr. Andresen to anyone in need of Chiropractic Therapy. In fact, he has greatly helped two of my friends.Respectfully,Elaine J.

Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
