Pain relief and cartilage regeneration
What causes pain in joints?
Between our bones are cushions of cartilage, which prevent grinding of the bones. When the layers of cartilage wear out, the bones begin to grind against each other, causing extreme pain. Under normal circumstances, the body replaces cartilage which is controlled by tiny electrical signals. These electrical signals are created inside our body. Due to diseases – e.g. osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, aging or injury the normal replacement of cartilage is disturbed, causing pain and inflammation.
What causes osteoarthritis?
Primary osteoarthritis is mostly related to aging. Over the years of over use the cartilage between joints get inflamed and starts degenerating. In advanced situation, there is a total loss of the cartilage cushion between bones of the joints leading to pain and limitation of joint mobility.
How does Pulsed Electromagnetic field reduce pain in joints?
When connective tissue is injured the physiological function of Electromagnetic signalling is disturbed or lost. Pulsed signal Technology, as external, biophysical signal (stimulus) of physiological energy parameters and waveform, passively induces ‘fluid flow’ to the injured area, creating ‘streaming potentials’ that induce biophysical-biochemical coupling and subsequent signal transduction. By this it activates repair and regenerative processes of cartilage. Once the process is initiated it restores the innate physiological signal which enables these regenerative and repair processes to continue naturally.
