The management of chronic and nonhealing wounds involves the use of electrotherapy including low-level LASER therapy (LLLT), ultraviolet rays, infrared radiation, and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS). Evidence suggests that kinetic chain activation results in fascial mobilization needed for rapid wound repair. However, the combined effect of electrotherapy and fascial mobilization by kinetic chain activation on wound healing is not known. This case report highlights the effect of a novel rehabilitation model integrating LLLT, TENS, and kinetic chain activation on wound healing. This study was conducted on a 46-year-old female who presented with a nonhealing wound on the plantar aspect of the foot. A positive outcome was observed in terms of pain reduction, improvement in wound size, and functional independence
