Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Nottinghamshire, UK - Aug 10, 2017 - Claire Tickle was told aged 15/16 by her GP that she was “fat and to go away and diet”. Seventeen years later, in 2009, Professor Peter Mortimer diagnosed Claire, then aged 32 with the painful adipose fat disease Lipoedema.
Despite being refused Liposuction treatment on the NHS, Claire Tickle, a single working mother, bravely went ahead with raising funds. With the support of friends and family to improve her quality of life, she has now had dramatic and life-enhancing surgery to reduce the constant pain of this chronic and slowly progressive disease. Though Claire still has some healing to take place, she now reports that she has ‘no pain, which is heaven!”
PhysioPod who loaned DEEP OSCILLATION® therapy for evaluation are very proud of Claire and her determination and wish her all the the best for the future. She has been a role model to other sufferers and has created a tremendous amount of awareness of this terrible disease through various media (including baring her ten stone legs on National Television). She has given others the courage to seek a diagnosis and get the help they so rightly deserve.
About DEEP OSCILLATION®:
Since DEEP OSCILLATION possesses anti-oedema, lymph drainage, anti-fibrosis and detoxifying properties, it prepares the tissue for liposuction, makes liposuction more effective and durable and protects against adverse effects of the body sculpting procedure. Claire used to soften tissue pre liposuction
Because it can be used at a very early post-operative stage, the healing process is accelerated, scar quality is improved, local inflammation is inhibited and stopped over a sustained period.
About PhysioPod® UK Limited:
Winners in the 2016 Global Healthcare and Pharmaceutical Awards for Innovation with DEEP OSCILLATION and nominated in the Private Healthcare Awards 2017, PhysioPod® UK Ltd are in their 11th year of trading. Directed by Sisters, Julie Soroczyn and Mary Fickling, they exclusively supply the UK and Ireland the full range of products from PHYSIOMED ELEKTROMEDIZIN AG, a world-wide leading producer of high-quality equipment for traditional and innovative physical therapy in the fields of rehabilitation, sport and aesthetic medicine. Approved suppliers to the NHS and recommended suppliers of The Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (AACP) they are also placed and respected, as suppliers within the UK’s elite sporting world. Aside from traditional treatment forms like electrotherapy, ultrasound, vacuum application, laser, shortwave, microwave, traction, cryotherapy, magnet and shockwave therapy, they also offer several innovative and clinically-tested therapy approaches, which include Magcell®, electrode-free electrotherapy and award-winning DEEP OSCILLATION®; an internationally patented therapeutic design which utilizes the forces of pulsed electrostatic attraction and friction to provoke oscillations, which act deeply on the tissues of the body; from the epidermis down through the conjunctive and adipose layers and into the muscles, supporting and intensifying manual lymphatic draining (MLD), sports and holistic massage with the added benefit of reducing pressure on the practitioners hands. Hernandez Tapanes et al (2010) were able to prove, by diagnostic ultrasound, penetration of the oscillations to an 8cm depth without any undue pressure being applied. Observed physiological effects of the therapy include, significant pain reduction, oedema resorption, fibrosis reduction, limited production of inflammatory mediators, especially during the treatment for chronic pain, a strengthening of the cutaneous tissues and stimulation of the wound healing process. It greatly benefits acute injury treatment and day one post surgical treatment and can be used over implanted pins and plates. Applied via vinyl gloves or applicators from Practitioner to Patient, handheld applicators also enable self-management, with patient’s continuous feedback of now feeling ‘in control’ of chronic conditions such as Lymphoedema and Lipoedema. Partners/supportive others can also be instructed in its application, bringing a viable treatment option into the home, improving patient quality of life. Complex cases can be treated effectively, including lymphoedema of the head and neck, breast fibrosis and genital oedema. Personal units are lightweight, battery operated and travel friendly. In addition to eight PubMed studies, DEEP OSCILLATION® has also been published in the Journal of Lymphoedema, The European Journal of Lymphology, and The Primary Care Nursing review.
