The influence of multidirectional vibrations on wound healing and on regeneration of blood- and lymph vessels.


Experiments show that the multidirectional vibration therapy is not an aggressive technique: when applied to the newly-formed lymph-vessels in the scar, we observed that they were not damaged by this technique whereas we had found in earlier studies that a gentle effleurage destructed the newly formed lymph network in the scar. When using this treatment, little or no adhesion of the scar to the underlying tissues is observed. There is a significant decrease of the local edema when compared to a standard group of wound-healing without multidirectional vibrations. There is also a significant decrease of general and local congestion and no increase in the permeability of veins and lymph vessels is present. The application of the local multidirectional vibration therapy accelerates the regeneration of the severed vein and lymph vessel.
