Hip

Anatomy of the hip

The purpose of the hip and the cartilage in this joint is twofold: Together with the ligaments, tendons and muscles they ensure smooth movement of the upper legs as well as the necessary stability and solidity.

Not only an accident can be a cause for hip problems. Overburdening the hip can also cause problems that are paired with swelling and pain.

cTreatment for hip injuries

Swelling and pain can occur when implementing a hip prosthesis, or during the recovery of an injury caused by overloading the hip. This swelling and pain reduces the mobility in the joint and results in a delayed start of the recovery process and a slower revalidation.

Correctly cooling the region of the injury makes sure that the pain and swelling are limited as much as possible. It also ensures 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 of the phase of recovery are just a few of those factors.

The cTreatments developed by Waegener for the hip ensure a correct and safe cooling in each phases of the recovery process. The specific protocols together with the accuracy of the cServer make the difference.

The inflammation reaction after surgery or caused by an injury lasts in most cases about three weeks. By using cTreatment during the entire recovery period, the pain and swelling are limited as well as possible, resulting in a faster recovery and a more comfortable patient.
