Neuromuscular/Lymphatic Taping

Distinct from ‘sports taping’ which limits the range of movement and increases local pressure NMT supports physiological movement and opens up the tissues to increase blood flow, allow lymphatic drainage and encourage the natural healing processes.

Conditions that have responded: -Lymphoedema -Fibrosis -Post surgery swelling and bruising -Scarring including keloid and old scars -Constipation -COPD/breathlessness -Soft tissue pain relief (via muscle trigger points)

General effects include: -Pain relief -Regulation of muscle tone, leading to improved function -Relief of congestion and swelling, improving the healing process -Neuro-physical stimulus via spinal nerves (autonomic reflexes) relieving deeper abdominal and thoracic issues


 
 
 
 

Deep Oscillation ®

Clinically proven effects (http://www.physiopod.co.uk/)

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.

Mobilzation 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 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.

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.

Cellulite Treatment: Oedema 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 thighs and posterior decreases.

Cellulite treatment: 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. Skin elasticity increases, and fibrosis is reduced.
