DEEP OSCILLATION Transforms Physiotherapy Practice
"I find that the PhysioPod has transformed my Physiotherapy practice. I use a variety of settings but have found the oedema setting particularly useful for all sports injuries as relieving the swelling, whether in a joint, tendon or muscle helps to normalise movement and restore balance and function to the area. I often have to stop half way through the treatment for the patient to rush to the loo as the lymphatic drainage can be very dramatic!
I have a patient with lymphoedema following cancer treatment and breast reconstruction and the PhysioPod has transformed her life. Prior to treatment she had constant pain and reduced movement in one arm, was unable to wear a bra and found walking difficult and dancing impossible. She is now back to all her fun activities and knows that even if she chooses to go mad physically any discomfort she has will be entirely relieved by a treatment. She only attends once a month for maintenance and is now buying her own machine for convenience as she lives a long way from the clinic.
I highly recommend the PhysioPod and use it several times daily in addition to manual and exercise therapy. I have had to buy one for each clinic room to stop the physios squabbling over grabbing the machine for their patients!
I am very glad I watched the demo Mary and Julie did at the Physio First conference in Nottingham and could see with my own eyes the fantastic response in reducing an effused knee. It's just great that we have this modality available to us as therapists, it is painless for the patient and has very few contraindications so would be a beneficial addition to any clinic."

In contrast to externally applied, mechanical forms of therapy, (e.g. vibration), the therapy effect of DEEP OSCILLATION® takes place in the tissue itself and works through the entire depth of the tissue layers (skin, connective tissue, subcutaneous fat, muscles, blood and lymph vessels)
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.
Because of the non-invasive, non-traumatic, gentle nature of this therapy, very early possibilities of application are possible following injury and from Day One post operatively. Chronic conditions can also be worked upon with effective results.
This 8 minute video provides a good overview of the therapy and its applications
The following physiological effects of DEEP OSCILLATION® are clinically proven:
- Highly effective in reducing pain
- Effective in reabsorbing oedema (swelling)
- Encouraging wounds to heal
- Fibrosis Reduction
- Improving trophicity
- Rubor reduction (haematoma/bruising)
- Improving quality of tissue
