Deep Oscillation & Manual Lymphatic Drainage consultation & treatment
At Achilles Healers we can offer an electro-mechanical therapeutic procedure using electrostatic attraction and friction in conjunction with manual lymphatic drainage techniques. Ideal for fluid retention, swollen joints and limbs, sprains, strains & acute injuries such as whiplash.
DEEP OSCILLATION ® is an electromechanical therapeutic procedure using electrostatic attraction and friction. It produces penetrating mechanical vibrations in treated tissues and a pumping effect deep into the tissue.
The treatment procedure requires minimal external pressure, which allows it to be used in cases of acute pain, fresh injuries and in the treatment of wounds. Numerous pilot studies have demonstrated pain reduction, minimisation of oedema and anti-fibrotic effects. It is commonly used for the treatment of Lymphoedema.
The DEEP OSCILLATION ® system, above all, has effects on the micro-circulation of the interstitial connective tissue. Treatment results in a normalisation of the steady state, i.e. of the permanent fluid flow between the tissue surrounding the cells and the lymph and blood vessels. In this manner, pain can be diminished and the circulus sanus be restarted or else accelerated.
DEEP OSCILLATION ® can be used as a treatment option in the acute stages of trauma and, as such, is suitable for the treatment of injuries such as whiplash, ligament sprains, (ankle sprains) ruptured muscles, (hamstring strains / calf strains) swelling and bruising.
