Joint arthroplasty is one of the most common modern operations in orthopedics and traumatology. Physiotherapy and rehabilitation are the final phase of the endoprosthesis and are of great importance both for the rate and for the extent of functional recovery. DEEP OSCILLATION® is a patented therapeutic procedure using resonant vibrations of tissues with minimal external mechanical effect and proven analgesic, antifibrotic, anti-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory effect.
Aim of the study:
To investigate the effect of deep oscillations and kinesitherapy on the reduction of edema, reduction of pain syndromes and restoration of the range of motion in patients after knee joint arthroplasty.
Materials and methods:
The study was conducted on 106 patients -38 men and 66 women randomly assigned to 2 groups - experimental group (EG) with 56 patients and control group (CG) with 50 patients, all after knee joint arthroplasty.
Our preliminary results indicate that there are significant differences in the recovery of patients in EG and CG. Patients who have a deep oscillation procedure are recovering faster and better, both in terms of subjective complaints and in terms of the monitored functional parameters (p<0.001).
The results obtained have shown that deep oscillations are an effective method for reducing swelling, suppressing pain and inflammation, and increasing the range of motion (ROM) in early rehabilitation of patients after knee joint arthroplasty.
