Shoulder

Anatomy of the shoulder

The shoulder joint makes sure that the upper arm can be used with significant flexibility and rigidity. The comparison between the shoulder joint and a golf ball on a tee is often made because of the significant difference in size between the upper arm and the shoulder socket. This comparison also refers to the fragile nature of the shoulder.

cTreatment for shoulder injuries

Most shoulder injuries involve a lot of pain. Sufficient cTreatment is advised to make sure the first few days after the operation are bearable, without having to prescribe too much pain medication.

Correctly cooling the region of the injury makes sure that the pain and swelling are limited as much as possible. It also ensures that revalidation program can start sooner.

The cooling itself must be very precise in order to avoid tissue damage and cold burns, as well as limit the pain and swelling. This accurate cooling can only ensue when different factors are taken into account: The length of cooling, correct temperature, the thickness of the subcutaneous fat layer or the volume of the joint  and the specific requirements of the phase of recovery are just a few of those factors.
The cTreatments developed by Waegener for the shoulder ensure that the cooling occurs constantly in a correct and safe manner. The specific protocols – different for every phase – make the difference, together with the accuracy of the cServer. Basic cooling systems without computerized protocols provide few or no results – in many cases they even have a negative influence on the recovery.

The inflammation reaction after surgery caused by a trauma or accident takes in most cases about three weeks. By using cTreatment during the entire recovery period the pain and swelling is limited, resulting in a faster recovery and a more comfortable patient.
