Venous ulcers occur because of poor blood flow in the leg veins. Valves inside the leg veins control blood flow through the veins. But these valves can get damaged, altering blood flow and leading to ulcers. Without adequate blood flow, your body has trouble healing, causing the ulcers to linger.
Doctors at Eastside Podiatry, PLLC, are well trained in caring for these wounds and achieving healing for the patient.
