It is a non-invasive method to treat the disease, can prolong or avoid the need for surgery. Electromagnetic waves stimulate the cells responsible for reshaping healthy cartilage. It removes pain, improves patient mobility, and prevents cartilage from continuing to deform. The therapy, which has positive results in 70% to 80% of cases, is done with nine or 12 applications of one hour each, depending on medical indication, and is painless.
Magnetic waves (PST) are indicated for degenerative articular diseases, tendinopathies, sports injuries and traumas and adjuvants to rheumatic diseases.
This technique is contraindicated for people with Pace-makers, neoplastic patients, severe heart failure, arrhythmias, angina pectoris, epilepsy, pregnant women and children under 12 years of age.
Patients with prostheses, screws or osteosynthesis material CAN perform the treatment without any restriction. Only pure iron (Fe) prostheses are inadvisable. However, such prostheses have long been unused. Metal alloys in which Fe are included are COMPATIBLE with the treatment. Titanium alloys (or other metallic alloys) with plastic components are usually used in cases of artificial joints and are also COMPATIBLE with PST treatment.
