Fields of Application for DEEP OSCILLATION®
Thanks to its non-invasive, non-traumatic and highly effective approach DEEP OSCILLATION® is used in many medical and therapeutic fields
DEEP OSCILLATION® can be very effectively utilised in the following areas:
Aesthetic Surgery Pre/Post - DEEP OSCILLATION® can be applied from the first day post operative which means patients can rehabilitate in a far quicker timescale than has previously been possible. Bruising, swelling and pain reduce as the daily treatment works on shuffling and transporting the excess inflammatory matter (in evidence after surgery) to the lymph system for removal. Once the area is drained, it is able to regenerate
Burns - DEEP OSCILLATION® can be applied as treatment to the wounded area or it's immediate surroundings. There is a visible improvement of decongestion and supply, enhancing a dynamic wound healing.
Complementary Therapy - Most of us view massage as a luxurious treat that we get on "away days" or holidays but in reality, the benefits of regular massages are fundamental to our long-term physical and mental well-being. When a general body massage is combined with DEEP OSCILLATION®, the body becomes completely and deeply relaxed within a relatively short period of treatment time (10-15 mins).
Chiropractic - For several years DEEP OSCILLATION® has been used successfully in the United States pre and post chiropractic manipulations and adjustments. With thanks to Physiomed North America we are able to see the difference it has made to four leading chiropractors and their work.
Equine & Canine - In 2006, shortly after PhysioPod took on exclusive UK/Ireland distribution for DEEP OSCILLATION Mary Fickling began email exchange with Bodo Wisst, the former German Physiotherapist to the Peruvian Taekwondo National Team. Bodo had, for the last two years managed to successfully replicate the success he achieved with humans using DEEP OSCILLATION® in the Equine World.
Fibromyalgia - 22.05.2010: The results of this study suggest that a treatment series with DEEP OSCILLATION® massage has a longlasting effect on symptoms of Fibromyalgia, pain and quality of life. As it was well tolerated, it may be a useful and safe tool for the symptomatic treatment of FMS. The DEEP OSCILLATION® Personal SPORTS now enables self treatment in the comfort of one's home.
General Surgery Pre/Post - Never in the history of surgery aftercare has there been a therapy that could be applied Day One post surgically to help expediate the natural healing process. DEEP OSCILLATION® has made a positive and welcome change to surgical aftercare protocols. With DEEP OSCILLATION®, swellings and oedemas can be relieved pre- and postoperatively considerably faster than with conventional therapies. Because it can be used at an extremely early stage, wound healing processes are stimulated and accelerated, local inflammation is inhibited and pain is significantly reduced over a sustained period. Scar quality is improved. It is an ideal conjunct to routine surgery aftercare, e.g. in oncology,neurology and traumatology. Due to its gentle effect it is used as a first line therapy for conditions after e.g. transplantation, mastectomia, caesarean section, osteosynthesis, endoprosthesis
Lymphoedema and Chronic Oedema - PhysioPod® UK Limited and DEEP OSCILLATION®, where appropriate for the treatment and maintenance of Lymphoedema and Chronic Oedema, including self-management.
Lipoedema (Lipedema) - What is Lipoedema? Lipoedema (NOT Lymphoedema) is a chronic, hereditary and genetic disorder of the adipose tissue (or body fat) which can be both disfiguring and painful. It predominantly affects women (although men can also suffer) from the age of puberty and beyond. Sufferers may have a normal slim (upper) body shape but a much larger disproportionate lower body below the waist without changes made to diet or exercise regime, in some cases, upper arms are effected too. As Lipoedema progresses, additional, expanding fat cells interfere with the pathways of lymphatic vessels and sufferers can develop secondary Lymphoedema and it then becomes known as Lipo-Lymphoedema. The effects of Lipoedema on the patient can also cause great psychological distress for the sufferer. It is very important for people with lipoedema to eat a healthy diet and follow a programme of low impact exercises such as swimming, walking or cycling.
Osteopathy - The unique, non-invasive, non-traumatic qualities of DEEP OSCILLATION® have now spread into yet another Field of Application, Osteopathy integrating DEEP OSCILLATION® with Osteopathic techniques.
Respiratory Disorders - In the treatment of respiratory conditions, DEEP OSCILLATION® is applied gently to the entire thorax, for the first part of the treatment session with effleurage stroking of the fingertips, followed by slow effleurage stroking of both hands. The hand held applicators provide the opportunity for daily self management.
Neurorehabilitation - DEEP OSCILLATION® has a significant oedema-reducing effect, improves trophism (fundamental nutrition involving the actual metabolic exchanges of the tissues) and directly stimulates self-mobilisation in areas relieved of pain, enabling an earlier return to active forms of therapy and activities of daily living. In brain stroke rehabilitation, DEEP OSCILLATION® is used for gentle and effective lymphatic drainage, especially of the head as well as for trophism improvement in hemiplegic areas. Deep Oscillation is well tolerated by the patient and fits well into a treatment protocol where it can normalise and decrease muscular tone and spasms, improve range of motion and sensitivity.
Sports & Occupational - The Sporting elite of the UK and Ireland were oblivious to the benefits of DEEP OSCILLATION® for the immediate treatment of injuries and day one post operative healing. In 2007 Carl Froch, WBC Super Middleweight title holder put the therapy firmly on the map and nobody was arguing with him! Since his endorsement, many have followed his lead, with professional footballers, golfers (the legendary Eammon Darcy included) and their physiotherapists talking excitedly about this new effective approach which meant they could now intensify the effects of their techniques and apply immediately after injury.
Ulcers - Many therapists using DEEP OSCILLATION® are now using it as a treatment for ulcers with very effective results, Christine Talbot, SRN, MLD Practitioner and Lymphoedema Therapist has provided PhysioPod™ UK Ltd with the following Case Study and pictures.
