Wrist

The anatomy of the wrist

The wrist is a very complex joint that consists out of a collection of small bones and a few ligaments, small muscles, tendons and nerves that cause the firmness, strength and flexibility of the joint.

cTreatment for wrist injuries

Surgery and all kind of injuries to the wrist cause swelling and pain, resulting in limited mobility and functionality of the wrist. The swelling also causes a delay on the revalidation process.

Correctly cooling the region of the injury ensures that the pain and swelling are limited as much as possible. Which means that physiotherapy sessions 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 fluctuations, the thickness of the subcutaneous fat layer or the volume of the joint and the specific requirements for the phase of recovery are just a few of those factors.

The cTreatments developed by Waegener for the wrist ensure that the cooling constantly occurs in a correct and safe manner. The specific protocols – different for every phase of recovery – ensure an optimal recovery, 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 process.

The troubles related to the inflammation reaction lasts about three weeks. By using cTreatment during the entire recovery period the pain and swelling is limited as well as possible, resulting in a faster recovery and a more comfortable patient.
