PEMF Patient Spotlight: Dr. William from Georgia

Q: When did your knee pain start? A: I’ve had this progress over the last two and a half years. The discomfort that I have is usually on getting up and starting to walk after I had been sitting for a while or waking up in the morning not having moved my leg. Usually I will get pain on initial movement. Q: What did you previously use to treat the pain? A: I would usually take anti-inflammatories. I’ve also taken Hyaluronic acid injections every six months for three years. There is some difference, but it would not clear up the…

PEMF Patient Spotlight: Ronald from Texas

Q: When did your knee pain start? A: I’ve had problems with my knee ever since high school. I waited until I was 61 years old to treat it. I got my first knee replaced and I was walking about a mile a day after a few months of therapy until a few years ago when I tripped and fell down the basement stairs. When I did, I bent my whole right leg back and it never did feel much better. I currently have both knees replaced. Q: What did you previously use to treat the pain? A: I’ve had…

PEMF Patient Spotlight: Lori from New York

Q: When did your knee pain start? A: It started 22 years ago after a brutal knee injury. I had a bump in my knee and I went for two arthroscopic surgeries. They did a lot of work to clear the arthritis out, but they couldn’t do it. They had to scrape my patella and take part of my meniscus out. Q: What did you previously use to treat the pain? A: I went to physical therapy and when it didn’t work, I went through arthroscopic surgery. They were giving me painkillers and I was allergic to that. I’ve had…

PEMF Patient Spotlight: Tom from Minnesota

Q: When did your knee pain start? A: After many years of racquetball I developed problems with my meniscus. It finally got to a point where I could not play anymore. I was told by my doctor that someday I may need knee replacement but in the meantime I looked for options so I did not have to take drastic measures. Q: What did you previously use to treat the pain? A: I tried supplements and wraps, but that was not successful. I had Synovial fluid put into my left knee. The injection cost me $800 out of pocket. I…

A: I have physical therapy on my knee and body massages. I take Aleve twice a day. I tried putting heat and cold. Everything helps a little. Q: How has the pain affected your daily life?

PEMF Patient Spotlight: Jim from California

Q: When did your knee pain start? A: I was former high school and college athlete. My area of athletics was gymnastics, which is very hard on a lot of joints. I also snow ski.

Q: What did you previously use to treat the pain? A: Celebrex I take all the time. The knee pain is still there in spite of Celebrex. I no…

PEMF Patient Spotlight: Jeannie from Minnesota

Q: When did your knee pain start? A: I was injured in the Fall of 2010 and I decided to take the conservative way and not get knee surgery. Q: What did you previously use to treat the pain? A: I wasn’t using any other treatments aside from wrapping up my knee in a bandage. It relieved the pain in the short term and it helped to stabilized my joints. Q: How has the pain affected your daily life? A: The pain was terrible, I didn’t exercise for months and the pain affected all aspects of my life. Q: How has…

I had a slight meniscus tear and an LCL sprain. Q: What did you previously use to treat the pain? A: Nothing other than seeing my chiropractor and acupuncture.
