ACL recovery: Carl Froch Endorsement

Froch gave this endorsement to Julie Sorocyzn, Managing Director of East Midlands based PhysioPod UK Limited.

The DEEP OSCILLATION® Personal SPORTS machine has been very beneficial in aiding my recovery from the surgery I had to repair the ligaments in my right knee earlier this year. Through regular application, it took a lot of the swelling out of my knee and I feel it has generally speeded up the process of me getting back into my regular training routine. My specialist, *Dr (Mr.) Derek Bickerstaff at Thornbury Hospital, Sheffield, has been very impressed with my rate of recovery. I also find the DEEP OSCILLATION® Personal SPORTS very helpful with the usual aches and pains I suffer when in the gym. It is very convenient as well. Because it's so portable I can take it with me wherever I'm training, whether in Nottingham or in camp down in London.

*Dr Derek Bickerstaff is a consultant orthopaedic surgeon, specialising in knee and ankle surgery and sports injuries and rehabilitation that has operated on several professional sports people including Darren Gough and Michael Vaughan.

Froch, aged 30 is unbeaten in 21 professional fights and by winning all but 4 of his fights by knockout he has earned himself the nickname "the Cobra". Carl is pleased to have his DEEP OSCILLATION® Personal SPORTS unit to hand in the run up to his next fight against former WBC World Champion Robin Reid at Nottingham Arena on November 9th.

The way in which DEEP OSCILLATION® differs from other types of therapy is that it is based on the effects of creating a safe, low frequency, electrostatic field, deep within the damaged tissue of the individual, attracting and releasing the tissue producing a "kneading" effect of the area, which triggers a deep resonant vibration (DEEP OSCILLATION®). So rather than vibrating on the surface, specially researched frequencies (between 5hz and 200Hz) work through the entire depth of tissue layers, including the connective tissue; penetrating gently and effectively, dividing/compressing then pumping out the metabolic waste by-products, helping to clear acute and chronic inflammation, disperse scar tissue, alleviate swellings and bruising and improving lymph drainage. It is particularly effective on bringing about a dynamic wound healing after operations, promoting mobility and improving sensitivity.

PhysioPod UK is delighted to receive Carl's endorsement of this unique, cutting-edge, German therapy, which is currently used in some 65 countries worldwide, including the USA and Russia and is now available in the UK.

The DEEP OSCILLATION® Personal SPORTS provides faster regeneration after training, traumatic injury, damage from overstraining, muscle aches and strains. It also has the added benefit of being pain free in application, so making it ideal for immediate injury treatment. (A C Milan uses this therapy).
As it is not a thermal therapy, it is safe too for use on areas with implanted metal plates. No electrical stimulation is required for effect as the machine is fitted with an active discharge device. Via different units it is also applied in the fields of surgery aftercare, e.g. breast cancer, open wounds (ulcers, amputations, burns), respiratory diseases and aesthetics, pre and post operatively and many common aesthetic procedures including cellulite.

The DEEP OSCILLATION® Personal SPORTS that Carl is endorsing is a portable and personal unit for individuals with sporting and/or occupational injuries and other common conditions. It is applied via a one-button system of operation with an applicator (pre-programmed conditions are on a therapy card ranging from Achilles Tendonitis, Arthritis, Back Ache, Ligament Ruptures/Tears to Strains/Sprains and Whiplash) and in some cases can be applied up to three times a day. The therapy can also be administered as a "hands-on" therapy through special gloves from therapist to client with a special lead. The devices available are the

HIVAMAT® 200 (treating a wider variety of conditions and suitable for a clinical environment where it can be placed as part of a treatment protocol)
