Center recognizes American Heart Month by teaching the community about cardiovascular care and wound healing
Niagara Falls, NY – The staff at The Wound Center of Niagara are celebrating American Heart Month by educating their community about good cardiovascular care and tips to keep hearts healthy year-round.
Every day, more than half a million Americans are diagnosed with cardiovascular diseases like peripheral artery disease, a condition that compromises leg circulation and results in non-healing wounds. A healthy heart helps keep oxygen and nutrient-rich blood flowing through the body, a vital component of wound healing.


“Any disease that disrupts blood circulation affects how long it will take for a wound to heal,” said Nicole Thomson, BSN, RN, Program Director. “Poor heart health means poor wound healing rates.” The Wound Center of Niagara suggests that patients do the following to be heart healthy:
• exercise at least 30 minutes a day
• if a smoker, quit
• eat a healthy amount of fruits and veggies instead of processed foods like potato chips
• get adequate sleep
• engage in activities to relieve stress, such as meditation
The Wound Center of Niagara at Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center provides a comprehensive approach to treating patients with non-healing wounds. The team features clinicians with advanced training in wound care and hyperbaric medicine.
The Wound Center of Niagara at Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center is open Monday through Friday, 8am to 4pm. For more information about wound care or to schedule an appointment, call 716.278.4424. No referral is required.
