For many years the increasing number of patients who indulge different accidents and injuries during executing buildings works was observed. The medical help offered to those patients – the most often surgical or orthopedic – in form of surgical debridement of wound should enable its complete healing. However in many cases the healing process of wounds does not run in correct way and chronic wounds come into being, which need complex treatment. Contemporary physical medicine systematically broadens the healing possibilities by introducing to clinical practice new procedures and the therapeutic devices which in many cases accelerate the healing processes of chronic wounds. It this paper the results of the treatment of 44-years old man who experienced the injury of right palm – the cut of two finger tips by the angle grinder, were presented. In the treatment two physical methods were applied: magnetostimulation and local hyperbaric oxygen therapy, with good results resulting in complete healing of wounds, enabling the independent patient’s existence, return to professional activity and improvement of quality of his life (Quality of Life).

Key words: chronic wounds, treatment, physical medicine, magnetostimulation, local hyperbaric oxygen therapy
