The Physiopod Benefits of using the Physiopod Deep Oscillation Unit include:
Highly effective in reducing pain
Effective in reabsorbing oedema (swelling)
Encouraging wounds to heal
Rubor reduction (haematoma/bruising)
Improving quality of tissue
Applied with gentle, minimal pressure, the therapy works through the entire tissue layers (including the connective tissue to a depth of 8cm) reaching the core of the affected area. DEEP OSCILLATION® is a non-invasive, non-traumatic treatment which is well received by the horse and their rider. Because of it's gentle application it is a unique treatment for acute and chronic injury, and day one post-operative. Clinically proven effects include: significant pain reduction, anti-inflammatory, anti-fibrotic, detoxification, oedema reduction and haematoma reduction with enhancement of nutrients returning to the tissue to promote the natural healing process.
In both human and equine it can also be used for: Pre-Event Massage: Increasing circulation, reducing muscular tension, improving flexibility and delivery of nutrients to the blood. Post-Event Massage: Flushing out waste products that have accumulated during the event, increasing lymphatic drainage and promoting fluid circulation, reducing inflammation. Encouraging wounds to heal DEEP OSCILLATION® helps in speeding up and improving wound healing processes. Through the oedema-reducing and anti inflammatory effect, the local metabolic elimination and alimentation is improved in all tissue layers, whereby tissue regeneration and wound closure are encouraged on many levels. This is documented by the significant improvement in planimetric and biochemical parameters of the wound healing. Pain Reduction DEEP OSCILLATION® alleviates pain by reallocating and flushing out pain transmitting and mediating substances. It suppresses inflammation and oedema induced pain by restricting pro inflammatory cell movement to the damaged area, by reducing the inflammatory mediator release, and by oedema reduction.
Mobilisation In chronic pain syndromes and posttraumatic conditions reduced mobility often is caused by constricted microcirculation due to increased tone of the muscles encasing capillary vessels. DEEP OSCILLATION® is muscle relaxing, enables optimal metabolism and normalizing of defective nerve function. As a measurable sign range of movement can be obtained or even increased. Anti Inflammatory Oedema and Fibrosis Reduction On the level of the interstitium, DEEP OSCILLATION® causes a »Shuffling« of the basic substance, thus promoting the removal of interstitial fluid as well as content material. Interstitial septa and fissures are kept open by the mechanical activation, which helps interstitial drainage. This significantly reduces both local oedema and aseptic inflammation. Proof was also established of a significant reduction in swellings in the area of the wound, due to the treatment. In chronic conditions the treatment helps to disperse fibrosis and to diminish hardening of the tissue. Anti Inflammatory DEEP OSCILLATION® suppresses acute and chronic inflammation by restricting pro-inflammatory cell movement to the damaged area, by reducing the inflammatory mediator release, and by inhibiting water and protein leakage from the blood and lymph vessels.
