At Hull Sports Massage we have introduced this new and exciting modality to our clinic as it has been evidenced to work in all areas of musculoskeletal injury and pain. We can boast that we are the Sports Injury Clinic in East Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire to support DEEP OSCILLATION® THERAPY.
The use of DEEP OSCILLATION® allows the creation of effective oscillations in the treated tissue whether it be muscle, tendon or ligament using electrostatic attraction and friction. Because of the non-invasive, non-traumatic, gentle nature of this therapy, very early application is possible following injury and from Day One postoperatively. Chronic conditions can also be worked upon with effective results.
Many professional teams and athletes are utilising DEEP OSCILLATION® for recovery from injury and as a preventative measure as It offers similar benefits of recovery as deep tissue massage yet without the surface pressure discomfort. Its impact has been recorded up to 8cm deep into the tissue offering a significant impact on the deeper structures.
Some of the benefits include:
Intermittent, electrostatic, massage therapy
Supports and enhances all physical forms of therapy
Non-invasive, non-traumatic and non-thermal
Safe over plates and pins and is effective for an immediate, acute injury
It can be applied post-operatively
What makes DEEP OSCILLATION® unique?
In contrast to externally applied mechanics forms of therapy, DEEP OSCILLATION® takes place within the tissue itself and works through the entire depth of the tissue layers; skin, connective tissue, adipose tissue (fat), muscles, the blood and the lymph to a depth of 8cms.
What can DEEP OSCILLATION® be used for?
All forms of musculoskeletal injury, including:
Chronic pain syndromes
Neurological pain and rehabilitation
Pre- and post-operative therapy
Mechanical trauma and damage due to over training (delayed onset muscle strain – DOMS)
Secondary wound healing
Burns (second degree)
What happens during a DEEP OSCILLATION® treatment?
The tissue is electrostatically charged and vibrated at specific frequencies to elicit specific therapeutic treatments.
High 80-200Hz (80-200 times per second):
Reduction in pain and increased lymphatic drainage
Break down of cellular metabolic waste – proteins, solids, acids, and toxins
Causes and breakdown and dispersal of hardened fibrotic tissue (knots)
Lowers blood pressure
Directly relieves peripheral nerve pain and limb immobility
Powerful pumping effect of oedema and lymph
Encourages the flow of essential nutrients around the body
Aids microcirculation in the interstitial spaces on the tissue
Boosts recovery from DOMS – removal of lactic acid
Relaxes tissue layers and promotes mobility and movement
Some of the physiological effects and benefits of DEEP OSCILLATION® therapy include:
Assists wound healing (Post Operation)
Reduces fibrotic knots
Assists in lymph
Clinical effects of DEEP OSCILLATION® Therapy
DEEP OSCILLATION® has been shown to reduce fibrotic tissue formation and help in its mobilisation through the lymphatic system and out of the body. This is most evident in its astonishing impact on reducing lymphoedema. The impact is similar on areas of cellulite, reducing not only the visual signs but also the underlying cause.
As DEEP OSCILLATION® reduces fibrotic cell formation and increases new collagen formation, it has a benefit on restoring tissue elasticity, its ability to stretch and return to its normal state, thus making it firmer. Various studies have shown DOT reduces deep lines and wrinkles as well as the appearance of bags under the eyes.
Some other benefits include:
Preventative fibrotic conversion process – fibrosis reduction
DEEP OSCILLATION® positively affects all cellular and molecular mechanisms of cellulite. It improves blood and lymph flow in the deep skin and subcutaneous layers diminishes inflammation and oedema, the girth of the thighs and posterior decreases.
Rough Fibrous Septae Disruption / Improvement of Skin Elasticity
DEEP OSCILLATION® disrupts or prevents the formation of rough fibrous septae and reduces the sensitivity of skin cells to oestrogen hormones. This provides effective treatment of cellulite in 80% of women. As skin elasticity increases, fibrosis is reduced.
