Daemen College Physical Therapy Inc. Wound CareDaemen College Physical Therapy Inc. is dedicated to providing the highest level of physical therapy intervention specific to wound care. Our clinicians are Doctors of Physical Therapy and some have obtained advanced wound care education earning them the designation of Certified Wound Specialists. While chronic wounds are a common occurrence, each wound is inherently unique and requires the experience of a collaborative team of wound care experts.

At the Daemen Wound Clinic, we aim to treat not only wounds themselves, but the pathophysiology behind them. To achieve this, we combine light therapeutic exercise with progressive modalities designed to improve the speed of wound closure and the welfare of our patients. Literature tells us that 10 minutes of exercise may reduce wound closure time by up to 10 days. We educate our patients in exercise, diet, activities of daily living, healthy lifestyle choices, cardiopulmonary health, and wound care/reoccurrence prevention.

Chronic wounds are very common; however, each wound is inherently unique and requires the experience of a collaborative team of wound care experts. Our clinic prides itself in our abilities to collaborate between health care professionals to work together with the same goal of properly healing our patients as soon as possible so that they can get back to their everyday lives.

Our objective is to work in collaboration with other members of our patients health care team including:

  • Primary Care Physician

  • Podiatrist
  • Dietician
  • Others

Following the evaluation at the clinic we will share our findings and any recommendations that we may have with your other health care providers to allow for cohesive efforts to our patients health.

Wound Care Academy

Daemen is also undergoing plans to establish a Wound Care Academy. Daemen faculty offer internationally-sought expertise; our wound symposiums have attracted 200+ professionals. As an integrated component of the Physical Therapy Wound Care Center, the Academy will offer the region's first NYS registered certificate in wound care as well as continuing education, triennial wound care symposium, and clinical rotations. The Academy will host national and international experts to educate pre-professionals and practitioners including physicians, surgeons, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, dieticians, and physician assistants in best wound care practices. Daemen faculty have authored numerous peer-reviewed articles on wounds, presented nationally and internationally, and received $3.8 million+ for wound research. Dr. Brogan, Daemen's Academic VP, is a Diplomat of the American Board of Wound Management. The Academy will train current and future health care practitioners in collaborative wound care diagnosis and treatment, improving patient outcomes. Over three years, Daemen will train 400+ pre-professionals and 800+ practitioners. The Academy will be sustained through tuition revenue and conference sponsorships. It will elevate WNY as a destination for wound care education, research, and practice.
