Wounds & Skin Conditions
BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy can stimulate limited circulation in the smallest blood vessels, positively supporting the body's self healing and regeneration processes. Enabled by strengthening the body's regulatory mechanisms, the natural responsiveness of the immune system and self-healing powers is activated, which has a positive effect on wound healing. More and more therapists and doctors
successfully apply BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy in their practices.
Electromagnetically transmitted signals are used to stimulate the pumping action of the smallest blood vessels, thereby normalising blood flow through these vessels. The cells profit from the improved supply and are better able to perform their tasks in wound healing. Additionally, this can be highly beneficial for patients suffering from skin conditions such as,
- Cradle Cap
- Skin injuries
The term "wound healing" describes a biological process in which a wound is sealed by regeneration or replacement by scar-tissue. Generally, this process takes place without medical intervention, but can be therapeutically optimized.
The natural biological process of wound healing sets in after just a few minutes, which has been demonstrated on the basis of a specific method. Wound healing can be split into four phases which overlap and cannot strictly be separated from each other. First phase The exudative phase of wound healing takes place in the first hours. Through the outlet of fibrin and coagulated blood, the wound gap is filled and scabs are formed by which the wound is shielded against germs from the outside. Around the wound a typical wound edema is formed. Second phase The resorptive phase takes place from the first to the third day of wound healing. In this phase, macrophages migrate into the wound tissue and absorb the blood clot. The basal epithelium begins to organize, and granulation tissue develops. Third phase The proliferative phase happens in the fourth to the seventh day of the wound healing. Now collagen is formed, and the wound is built up in this way. Fourth phase The reparative phase begins on the eighth day - final scar tissue forms, and the squamous epithelium of the skin is renewed. The resulting scar tissue has neither sebaceous nor sweat glands and has a white-nacreous appearance to it. The first and the second phase of wound healing are also referred to as "cleansing phase". In addition, there is a distinction between primary and secondary wound healing. In primary wound healing, well-defined, closely adjacent wound edges are formed. A good blood flow to the wound and clean, germ-free wound conditions are the prerequisite for this form of healing. Especially after surgery or trauma by sharp objects, wounds can heal in the primary way. But even large, superficial wounds, such as abrasions, heal primarily, by regeneration of the epidermis. In secondary wound healing, the wound's edges cannot be placed together, and/or are necrotic. There are particularly serious defects and the wound must heal by the formation of granulation tissue. Tissue formation and wound contraction are characteristics of secondary Wound healing. Wound infection also causes secondary healing.
Wound healing can be influenced both positively and negatively. Positive influences are, for example, the supply of oxygen, vitamins, heat and zinc. Negative effects on wound healing are oxygen deficiency, underlying diseases, such as diabetes mellitus, zinc deficiency and cold.
Through certain influences, the phases of wound healing can be interrupted or delayed. This is referred to as a wound healing disorder. The penetration of bacteria may lead to a delay in healing and cause deterioration of the wound conditions. To prevent this, the Wound bed must be cleaned antiseptically every day. In complex cases, systemic administration of antibiotics and/or surgical intervention happens. A further complication is the presence of blood or tissue fluid in the cavities; here, in some cases a puncture of the liquid is needed, to relieve the healing tissue. Sometimes coarse connective tissue growths also arise around the scar. This characterized by the spread to surrounding healthy tissue. Scar hypertrophy is a form the overgrowth where only the scar tissue is affected. Cuts along the Langer's skin lines can prevent hypertrophy. Incisional hernia is caused by the overstretching of an existing scar and can be found especially often in the area of the ventral body-wall. A wound rupture is caused by the bursting of the seam and by insufficient wound closure or by infection.
