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.
How does BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy work?
Electromagnetically transmitted signals are used to
stimulate the pumping action of the smallest blood vessels,
thereby normalizing blood flow through these vessels.
The cells profit from the improved supply and are better able
to perform their tasks in wound healing. Additionally, energy
for mental and physical performance is released by the treatment,
which leads to an improvement in general well-being.
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.
Different stages of Wound Healing
The natural biological process of wound healing
sets in after just a few minutes, which has been demonstrated on the basis of a
Wound healing can be split into four phases
which overlap and cannot strictly
be separated from each other.
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.
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.
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.
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 infection also causes secondary healing.
Can wound healing be influenced?
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.
Impaired wound healing
Through ertain 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.
