Abstract

Our aim was to evaluate the effect of deep oscillation and biofeedback on Raynaud's phenomenon (RP) secondary to systemic sclerosis (SSc). A prospective randomized study was performed in SSc patients receiving either deep oscillation (n = 10) or biofeedback (n = 8) thrice a week for 4 weeks, or patients were randomized into the waiting group untreated for vasculopathy (n = 10) in time of running the study interventions. Biofeedback resulted in an improvement ofRP as determined by score reduction of visual analogue scale compared with patients of the control group (P<0.05), whereas deep oscillation revealed a tendency for improvement (P = 0.055). The study underlines the beneficial role of physiotherapy for the treatment of SSc-related RP.
