Are the effects of osteoarthritis lowering your quality of life?
Osteoarthritis (OA) affects over 40 million people in North America and is most commonly found in those 50 and above as it often takes years to develop. It is a degenerative disease that sets in as the structure of our joints begin to deteriorate and over time the speed of new tissue growth is overtaken by the speed of tissue breakdown. Eventually the protective tissues around a joint wear down to the point that movement becomes extremely painful as bone grinds on bone. It can keep from your favorite activities such as golf, hiking or exercise, or even cause everyday tasks like opening jars or chopping vegetables seem like painful obstacles.
With the intent to improve quality of life, current treatments for OA are mainly targeted at symptoms of the disease instead of progression of the disease. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as Ibuprofen can have serious health risks if taken long term such as ulcers, kidney failure, stroke and even heart attacks. One way ticket medical procedures such as partial or full replacement of a joint are in many cases effective but are not risk free and can potentially cause long term negative side effects. Stem therapy, involves the complex and painful procedure where under a general anesthetic stem cells are removed from your bone marrow and then mixed with your fat cells which is then injected into the affected area. The price of a single procedure ranges anywhere from $7000-12,000 CDN for a pair of joints and can require multiple treatments.
Is there any reason why you wouldn’t try an extremely effective, safe, non-invasive alternative?
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy is a safe, non-invasive way to manage the symptoms of arthritis while getting to the root of the cause. The iMRS and Omnium1 PEMF systems we use in our clinic are Health Canada and FDA approved medical devices that employ NASA proven technology where weak pulsing magnetic field are used to activate various physiological responses in the body by improving cell membrane potential through increased ion transfer. This exercise and rehabilitation is imperative for cells in the inflamed area affected by arthritis as in many cases they have become stagnant due to the fact that it is painful to move. Your body is designed to heal and regenerate, though due to environment, lifestyle, genetics and age cells begin to become less active making them less effective at fighting off the disease. By recharging your 75 trillion cells and initiating a natural healing response your body itself will begin to combat progression of the disease, increasing mobility and decreasing pain and inflammation.
The empowering experience of getting the upper hand on OA with PEMF therapy will allow you to take control of your health instead of letting arthritis take control of you.
