What is DEEP OSCILLATION® therapy?
DEEP OSCILLATION® is a unique international patented non-invasive, non-traumatic therapy method. Its special structure allows the creation of biologically effective oscillations in the treated tissue using electrostatic attraction and friction. In contrast to other therapies, these pleasant oscillations have a gentle and deep-acting effect on all tissue components (skin, connective tissue, sub- cutaneous fat, muscles, blood and lymph vessels).
For the treatment, the patient holds a titanium neutral element loosely between the fingers. The pleasant therapy effect of DEEP OSCILLATION® is created beneath special gloves of the therapist or a specially designed hand applicator (second contact) circling over the tissue. The following effects of DEEP OSCILLATION® are clinically proven:
High pain-reducing potential (both for acute traumatic and chronic pain syndromes), Prevention and reduction of secondary and primary lymphoedema, Anti-inflammatory effect, Preventive fibrotic conversion processes, Fibrosis reduction, Muscular relaxation, Movement-promoting effect, Mobilisation, Promotes wound healing, particularly for secondary wounds and burns, Normalisation of haemodynamic skin parameters and influence on biological ageing through preventive impact on premature ageing. The exceptionally gentle action, early implementation and spe- cific clinical effects make DEEP OSCILLATION® a unique therapy option, which is being used increasingly in medical fields that are not typically focused on by conventional physical therapies.
Fields of application of DEEP OSCILLATION®
PRE – AND POSTOPERATIVE THERAPY
With DEEP OSCILLATION®, oedemas and haematomas can be relieved pre and postoperatively considerably faster than with conventional therapies. Because it can be used at an extremely early stage, wound healing is stimulated and accelerated, local inflammation processes are inhibited and pain is significantly reduced over a sustained period. Scar quality is improved. DEEP OSCILLATION® is therefore frequently used as a routine adjuvant post-operative therapy, for instance in oncology, neurology and traumatology. Due to its very gentle therapeutic effect it is used as a first line therapy for conditions after e.g. mastectomy, Caesarean section, osteosynthesis, endoprosthesis etc.
Use of DEEP OSCILLATION® reduces volume in the case of primary and secondary lymphoedema. The therapy is also increasingly used with success for lipoedema. DEEP OSCILLATION® has a preventive and anti-fibrotic effect: incipient fibrosis in particular can be treated effectively. Skin conditions and lymphatic drainage are improved.
MECHANICAL TRAUMATA AND DAMAGE FROM OVERSTRAINING
In the case of traumata and damage from overstraining, DEEP OSCILLATION® has a direct oedema and pain-reducing effect and consecutively stimulates self-mobilisation in pain-relieved areas, thus enabling an early return to active life. For sports- persons it means an earlier commencement of active forms of therapy and training, for ‘normal‘ patients a swifter return to ac- tivities in daily life.
TRAINING AFTERCARE AND PERFORMANCE STABILISATION IN SPORT
In training aftercare, DEEP OSCILLATION® is known for its rapid, muscle-relaxing and pain-relieving effects and for its direct effect against microtrauma (muscle aches). Roughage and cell remains are removed more quickly through the treatment. This promotes a more effective nutritional supply to the muscle cells, thus accelerating the restoration to optimal performance. Regeneration times in the systematic training process can thus be reduced.
SECONDARY WOUND HEALING
DEEP OSCILLATION® is being increasingly used for secondary wound healing, regrettably often as a last resort. DEEP OSCILLATION® is an efficient adjuvant treatment option in the case of both post-operative and diabetic wound healing disorders and oedema-induced secondary wound healing.
In the case of second-degree burns wound healing is significantly accelerated and qualitatively improved by DEEP OSCILLATION®.
CHRONIC PAIN SYNDROMES
In indications such as fibromyalgia syndrome, Sudeck ?s dystrophy etc., which are accompanied by chronic pain, DEEP OSCILLATION® has a strong pain relieving effect, which often allows for a reduction of medicine intake. The treatment promotes mobilization to a great extent, alleviates muscle stiffness and tackles impairments in activities of daily life, with consequent positive effect on fatigue, fears and depression.
In brain stoke rehabilitation DEEP OSCILLATION® is used for semi-paralysed regions of the body to improve trophicity and reduce spasms in affected areas, and also for lymphatic drainage, for instance to treat lymphoedema in the head area. The therapy is also used with great success for children with cerebral palsy and tetraplegia to reduce spasms and treat bowel obstipation.
