Deep Oscillation Therapy:
We believe in this therapy so much, we’ve dedicated a whole section of our site to it. Raglan Sports Medicine introduced DOT, a relatively new therapy, to Ireland in 2009. Since then our practitioners have been involved closely with the manufacturers in Germany and distributers in the UK regarding protocol design for various pathologies and as treatment consultants with many sporting bodies and professional teams. Its unique design and application offers a wide range of benefits for the body. It is a completely pain free and non-invasive form of therapy.
Many professional teams and athletes are utilising DOT for recovery from injury and from exertion. It offers similar benefits of recovery as deep tissue massage yet without the surface pressure discomfort. Its impact has been recorded up to 12cm deep into the tissue offering a significant impact on the deeper structures.
As there is no thermal side affect from the treatment, it can be used over implanted surgical wires and screws safely while offering huge benefit to the bodies healing mechanisms. DOT has been shown to be gentle while offering benefit to wound healing and even burns and can be used as early as 24hrs after the surgery.
The low frequency oscillation affect utilises the pain gate mechanism in the body offering a substantial reduction in pain after the treatment. This combined with the gentle application and the depth of its therapeutic effectiveness makes it a successful treatment for osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia as well as muscle strains.
DOT has 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 DOT 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.
