It may surprise you to learn that the wrist does not just consist of one joint but rather, is made up of several different joints. It’s also where two forearm bones connect, which are each made of several different bones. Why should you know this? Because if something happens to any one of them, your wrist will be affected, and wrist injuries are common. The wrist recovery devices from Gladiator Therapeutics can help.

What are Common Wrist Injuries?

Many of the common wrist injuries aren’t threatening your life, but they are threatening your quality of life. A wrist injury can majorly impact your ability to do just about anything and is generally a great inconvenience. Think of everything you have done so far today, and which of these activities could you have done without moving your wrist? If you have a wrist injury, many of those activities would have been slowed or even stopped by the pain.

To heal some of the most common wrist injuries, or at least their symptoms, you can use healing devices. If you believe you have a wrist injury and are looking for a non-surgical and non-invasive way to treat it, consider the CeraRecovery Wrist device from Gladiator Therapeutics. We’ll walk through the common wrist injuries you’re likely to experience that our device can help you recover from.

#1. Arthritis

Arthritis is a collection of joint pain conditions and diseases. There is no one type of arthritis, considering the many different causes, symptoms, and treatability. It’s currently a leading cause of disability in women in the United States, with some versions causing permanent symptoms.

The wrist is one of the most common places to develop arthritis considering the consistent and extensive use of the joints in your wrist. If you develop arthritis in your wrist, even the incurable forms can still have their symptoms treated with our CeraRecovery Wrist device. It can help to reduce swelling, stiffness, and pain in the affected joints.

#2. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Did you know there is a part of your wrist called the carpal tunnel? It’s an inch-wide narrow passageway in your wrist located just below the surface at the base of your wrist. If your feel pain there, this is called carpal tunnel syndrome. It’s caused by the median nerve in your carpal tunnel being squeezed or compressed.

Many people only experience this irregular pain, but others can endure more long-lasting and painful consequences. Carpal tunnel syndrome can lead to the loss of feeling in the fingers or weakness in your hand.

A CeraRecovery Wrist device can help heal carpal tunnel syndrome in a way that lasts longer than other exercises and procedures. This is because our devices specialize in relieving nerve pressure.

#3. Sprains

Sprains are caused by ligaments being stretched beyond their limit. This is common in the wrist when it is bent or twisted. Sprains are ranked in grades, with grade 1 being the least severe and taking the shortest to heal.

To heal, you need to refrain from putting pressure on the sprain. For a grade 1 sprain, you need to do this for up to 3 weeks for it to completely heal, up to 6 weeks for a grade 2 sprain, and several months for a grade 3 sprain.

You can drastically reduce that recovery time with a wrist recovery device from Gladiator Therapeutics.

#4. Tendonitis

Tendonitis is an issue with the tendons in your wrist. Tendons connect your muscles to your bones, so when they’re inflamed, your ability to move and use them becomes severely affected. It’s commonly caused by repetitive stress and the use of your wrist.

Tendonitis commonly causes pain near the thumb and pinkie finger, as well as stiffness and swelling around the bases of your fingers. You may even experience a popping sensation or difficulty in completing common tasks.

Gladiator Therapeutics wrist recovery devices can help with repairing the inflamed tendons in your wrist so you regain function as soon as possible.

Wrist injuries can seriously get in the way of your everyday life, but you don’t have to let it. You need to be able to go through your day without pain in your wrist, but surgery isn’t necessarily the right answer. Even when it is, you need some way to help you recover and recover faster.
