Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Nottinghamshire, UK - Sep 22, 2017 - Following surgery and radiation treatment Orna’s lymphatic system had become compromised, her Lymphoedema Practitioner, Monica Conway, recommended she purchase a DEEP OSCILLATION® Personal to help with daily self management.
What is DEEP OSCILLATION® therapy?
In contrast to externally applied, mechanical forms of therapy, (e.g. vibration), the therapy effect of DEEP OSCILLATION® takes place in the tissue itself and works through the entire depth of the tissue layers (skin, connective tissue, subcutaneous fat, muscles, blood and lymph vessels)
The DEEP OSCILLATION Personal Sport or Aesthetics device is handy-sized and battery operated, with a mains lead to charge the batteries. It comes in a smart travel bag that can be used as inflight hand luggage, handheld applicators are used in circular movement over the tissue affected. When travelling abroad, pre and post flight treatment is recommended, as cabin pressure, gravity and lack of movement during flight can sometimes worsen the area affected.
DEEP OSCILLATION® therapy offers an additional, non-invasive, conservative approach to Lymphoedema self-management together with compression, self lymphatic drainage, exercise and skin hygiene and is ideal to help keep symptoms managed between clinic visits. It can be used on all types of Primary and Secondary Lymphoedema, in paediatrics and the elderly, after contraindications have been checked. Lymphoedema of the upper and lower limbs, truncal and more complex cases of the head and neck, breast and genital areas can be worked upon. Stubborn fibrosis can be tackled.
Further testimonials can be read of the PhysioPod website. Treatment with a qualified MLD DLT Lymphoedema Practitioner is required prior to purchase of a personal unit to assess suitability and after a mutually agreed Therapist/Patient successful treatment outcome has been arrived at PhysioPod work with both parties to programme a bespoke card for use in the device.

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.
