CRMC Wound Care & Hyperbaric Clinic celebrates Nutrition Awareness Month


During Nutrition Awareness month, the staff at CRMC Wound Care & Hyperbaric Clinic are emphasizing the value of good nutrition and advising their patients to eat balanced meals to speed wound healing

Though often overlooked as a factor in wound healing, good nutrition is an extremely important part of the healing process. Wounds must be well-fed to heal, requiring increased amounts of calories, protein, water and specific vitamins and minerals.

“Because nutrition is so vital to wound healing, nutritional assessments are an important part of what we do,” said Tracy Martini, NP-C. “Poor nutrition before or during wound healing may slow or delay the rate of wound healing.”

CRMC Wound Care & Hyperbaric Clinic works in conjunction with a patient’s primary care provider to create an ongoing plan for improvement and recommend dietary plans to promote healing. CRMC Wound Care & Hyperbaric Clinic also recommends that patients:

  • Eat balanced meals that include the right amount from each food group.
  • Include plenty of fruits and vegetables in each meal. 
  • Stay well hydrated throughout the day to ensure vitamin and mineral absorption.
