Five Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trusts Add DEEP OSCILLATION® to their Lymphoedema Services
As NHS Approved Suppliers, PhysioPod UK are delighted that DEEP OSCILLATION® is being utilised, where appropriate, for the management of Lymphoedema, adding and enhancing existing protocols to help sufferers manage this life long and chronic condition.
What happens when DEEP OSCILLATION® is applied?
In higher frequencies - Pain is significantly reduced. The bodies’ lymphatic drainage pathways are opened and activated. The therapy is breaking down the trapped cellular metabolic waste, including protein solids and abnormal fluid build up. This encourages the dispersal of hardened, fibrotic tissue.
In medium frequencies - Microcirculation in the interstitial spaces of the connective tissue is boosted, causing a relaxation of the tissues. The now collected, biological waste products start to move out to the lymph system for removal.
In lower frequencies -Vasodilation (expansion of blood vessels) causes a slight lowering of blood pressure. A powerful, yet gentle, pumping action in these lower frequencies causes strong movement in the tissue. The re-instigation of freely flowing fluids encourages essential nutrients back to the tissue.
What are the effects?
• Improvement of the body's natural ability to replenish its depleted supplies of nutrients
• Muscle relaxation
• Pain reduction
• Haematoma (Blood filled swelling/bruising) and microtrauma prophylaxis
• Oedema reduction (fluid/protein filled swelling)
• Improvement in tone (through muscle stimulation and relaxation)
• Inflammation inhibition
• Stimulates wound healing
• Movement facilitation
• Anti-inflammatory effect
• Anti-fibrotic effect
• Reduction of skin irritation
• Improvement in the tissue quality
