Physiotherapy and rehabilitation are the final stage of arthroplasty with great importance concerning the rate and stage of functional recovery. Deep Oscillations is a patent therapeutic treatment which uses tissue vibrations with minimal external mechanical effect and is with proven pain relief and fibrinolytic effect, reducing oedema and inflammation.
The aim of this study is to follow the effect of the complex application of Deep Oscillations and kinesitherapy on the recovery of patients with total knee arthroplasty.The study included 50 patients (21 men and 30 women) divided into 2 groups – experimental (EG) and control group (CG) all with total knee arthroplasty and proved that Deep Oscillations is an effective method for reducing inflammation, oedema and pain and increasing the range of motion in the early rehabilitation after knee joint replacement.
