Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, UK, July 28, 2016 — This feedback is from Jan Bell, Lymphoedema Nurse Specialist at Berkshire West Sue Ryder Service. PhysioPod® were delighted to be able to offer the Berkshire West Sue Ryder Service a trial of three DEEP OSCILLATION® units in order to evaluate treatment effectiveness for the Lymphoedema sufferers in their care.
“I used the Deep Oscillation therapy using “the paddle” with a patient with genital swelling. They had quite engorged swelling which was very uncomfortable and tight, but mostly very distressing. They had other health problems too, and because of this, conventional methods of treatment would be contraindicated.
Using the paddle to self treat (because of the private area being treated), there was no embarrassment from the patient, they felt in control, and I guided them to use stroking movements up towards the groin/trunk – for SYMPTOM MANAGEMENT ONLY.
After one treatment the swelling was much softer to one side of the groin and the genitals felt less full. After the 2nd treatment a week later, both sides of the groin felt softer and the genital area was much softer and less swollen and stayed improved until the next appointment with mild intermittent swelling.
After the 3rd and final treatment (the trial period) the swelling felt more comfortable.
The patient experienced it as “really good, it helped a lot, it was really comfortable”
Other methods of gentle compression to the genitals were used, but alone, they were not as effective. The introduction of Deep Oscillation and self-treating made a big difference to the patient`s quality of life and symptoms.”
