Deep Oscillation Improving Key Objective Markers in 4-Day Timeframe
Super to get this review from Dan Kett, Physio at Game Changer Performance at St George's Park
I have been using the DEEP OSCILLATION Personal Sports on the PFA scheme at St George’s Park unit over the last few months with great success.
It has been highly effective in managing post-op joint effusion and pain alongside providing a minimally invasive method to target the breakdown of scar tissue.
Moreover, the players have found the treatment extremely beneficial and have often preferred it to more aggressive forms of manual therapy.
Most importantly for us at Game Changer Performance, we have been able to see significant improvements in key objective markers in the 4day timeframe we have to work with the players. I would personally recommend the Physiopod deep oscillation unit for any Physiotherapist working in a sports rehab/MSK environment.’
What is the Professional Footballer Association (PFA) Scheme?
Each week the PFA funds six residential rehabilitation spaces at St George's Park, which can be accessed by current and former PFA members with a medium to long-term injury.
St. George’s Park combines cutting edge technology with elite medical expertise to create the most advanced sports medicine, rehabilitation, performance science and training centre in the UK.
The programme has run at St George's Park for the past 5 years and is delivered by Game Changer Performance (GCP)

About Deep Oscillation
DEEP OSCILLATION® is an internationally patented, proven technology based on the effects of creating an electrostatic field in the tissue of the patient which has effects in the interstitial space of the connective tissue.
Easy application is from therapist to patient/client via hygienic, vinyl gloved hands; utilising all massage movements or via circular movements over the tissue with a handheld applicator.
The handheld applicator also enables self-treatment.
The special structure of DEEP OSCILLATION® allows the creation of biologically effective oscillations in the treated tissue using electrostatic attraction and friction. In contrast to other therapies, these pleasant oscillations have a gentle and deep-acting effect on all tissue components to an 8 cm depth (through skin, connective tissue, subcutaneous fat, muscles, blood and lymph vessels).
DEEP OSCILLATION® is an especially gentle and an unmatched treatment alternative for fresh trauma, postoperative, for acute pain and in the area of open wounds.
Proof was established in representative studies of the following significant effects of
Encouraging wounds to heal
DEEP OSCILLATION® helps in speeding up and improving wound healing processes. Through the oedema-reducing and anti inflammatory effect, the local metabolic elimination and alimentation is improved in all tissue layers, whereby tissue regeneration and wound closure are encouraged on many levels. This is documented by the significant improvement in planimetric and biochemical parameters of the wound healing.
DEEP OSCILLATION® alleviates pain by reallocating and flushing out pain transmitting and mediating substances. It suppresses inflammation and oedema induced pain by restricting pro inflammatory cell movement to the damaged area, by reducing the inflammatory mediator release, and by oedema reduction.
In chronic pain syndromes and post-traumatic conditions reduced mobility often is caused by constricted microcirculation due to increased tone of the muscles encasing capillary vessels. DEEP OSCILLATION® is muscle relaxing, enables optimal metabolism and normalising of defective nerve function. As a measurable sign range of movement can be obtained or even increased.
DEEP OSCILLATION® suppresses acute and chronic inflammation by restricting pro-inflammatory cell movement to the damaged area, by reducing the inflammatory mediator release, and by inhibiting water and protein leakage from the blood and lymph vessels.
Oedema and Fibrosis Reduction
On the level of the interstitium, DEEP OSCILLATION® causes a »shuffling« of the basic substance, thus promoting the removal of interstitial fluid as well as content material. Interstitial septa and fissures are kept open by the mechanical activation, which helps interstitial drainage. This significantly reduces both local oedema and aseptic inflammation. Proof was also established of a significant reduction in swellings in the area of the wound, due to the treatment. In chronic conditions the treatment helps to disperse fibrosis and to diminish hardening of the tissue.
