Vacuum-therapy

Used To Treat

Stimulating nerve activity is designed to relive pain and increase blood flow to the injured area of your body.

Effective relief of pain in musculoskeletal conditions.

What is vacuum therapy?

Vacuum Therapy uses suction and pressure, along with Radio Frequency energies, to create superficial and deep heating of connective tissue fibers, dermal collagen fibers and fat cells. Such heating increases oxygen uptake and accelerates tissue healing, it also increases the activity of destructive enzymes, such as collagenase, and increases the catabolic rate. Vacuum Therapy is a form of manual treatment that provides the ability to stretch tight and restricted tissues, such as those found in sporting injuries, overuse or physical restriction due to illness. As a consequence of this stimulation, blood flow is increased to the scarred, tight or painful area. Our muscular injuries result in tight and guarded muscles – the more restricted a muscle is, the more difficult it is for nourishing blood and oxygen to reach the damaged area. Without such nourishment, the healing process may be slowed or prevented.

How does vacuum therapy help patients?

Vacuum Therapy stimulates blood circulation in the treatment area. Consequently we see:
• Local improvement of circulation
• Increased removal of metabolic products from the therapy site
• Stimulation of collagen and elastin production
• Local extravasation (removal of blood from intravascular spaces)
• Softening of tight and/or painful muscles
• Reduction in cellulite
• Hydrates the skin
All of which promotes healthy muscle tissue by brining oxygen and nutrients to the muscle.

Indications and contraindications for the use of vacuum therapy

Indications
● Inflammation of soft tissue and bones resulting in conditions such as:
▪ generalized backache
▪ capsular tightness (ie rotator cuff injury)
▪ sports injuries
▪ bursitis
▪ tendonitis
▪ stress injuries
● Scars
● Bedsores



Contraindications
Acute and progressive inflammation
Bleeding diathesis
Active cancer
Taking anticoagulants
Fever
Thrombosis
Dermatological conditions in the treatment area
Open wounds in the treatment area
Acute sepsis
Pregnancy – do not treat the lower abdomen, back or pelvis
Cardiac pacemakers and restriction on treatment area with other cardiac conditions
Menstruation – do not treat lower back or abdomen
Hyper/hypotension – restriction of the treatment area

When using a vacuum therapy device, contraindications should also be taken into account.
Including:
