Deep Oscillation Therapy Q & A

What is Deep Oscillation therapy?

Deep Oscillation therapy is a non-invasive, non-traumatic therapeutic device that accelerates your body’s natural healing process. The tool uses electrostatic traction and friction to move in a back and forth motion over the tissue. 

Deep Oscillation therapy gently and effectively treats various types of tissue — blood vessels, subcutaneous fat, and muscle — at the deepest level. Other forms of therapy, like vibration therapy, work on the outer layer of tissue to stimulate healing and activity. 

How does Deep Oscillation therapy work?

Deep Oscillation therapy activates your body’s natural healing powers in the deeper layers of your tissue. Stimulation of these tissues triggers a physiological effect that:

  • Reduces pain
  • Activates growth factors and proteins for healing
  • Decreases inflammation and swelling
  • Increases delivery of blood and nutrients to the tissue
  • Helps remove toxins
  • Improves tissue quality

Deep Oscillation therapy also helps your muscles relax, which improves mobility.

They may recommend Deep Oscillation therapy in the following situations:

  • For preoperative and postoperative therapy to improve surgical recovery
  • To reduce edema 
  • To treat lymphedema
  • To accelerate healing of a strain or sprain
  • To alleviate chronic pain

Deep Oscillation therapy also promotes the healing of second-degree burns. 

What happens during Deep Oscillation therapy?

During Deep Oscillation therapy, your provider uses special gloves or a hand applicator to move the device in a circular motion over your injured tissue. You may feel a vibrating sensation, and most patients find Deep Oscillation therapy relaxing. 

Deep Oscillation therapy sessions take about 30 minutes. You should notice a reduction in pain within 10-15 minutes after starting your session. 

Your physical therapist may recommend more than one therapy session to get the best results. Deep Oscillation therapy may be combined with other treatments, such as dry needling or massage therapy, for the best results.
