PEMF Patient Spotlight: Gordon from Minnesota

Q: When did your knee pain start? A: I had both knees replaced in 2001. I fell down real hard on ice in April 2011. It loosened up the shaft that goes into the bone and they had to replace the knee again in November of 2011. Q: What did you previously use to treat the pain? A: I didn’t really use anything but just put up with it. I had to walk with a cane most of the time and it hurt to walk on it. Q: How has the pain affected your daily life? A: Before it affected…

PEMF Patient Spotlight: Carl from Minnesota

Q: When did your knee pain start? A: I have had knee pain as far back as high school. I remember my knee pain more distinctly later in my mid 20s. Just getting a little bit older and not being involved as athletically as in the past. The knee pain feels mostly like inflammation in both knees around the knee cap. I feel it mostly when I crouch down and bend the knees. Q: What did you previously use to treat the pain? A: I would get chiropractic adjustments. Also Pilates, yoga, sleep, and dieting. All these things together definitely…

PEMF Patient Spotlight: Kathy from Minnesota

Q: When did your knee pain start? A: I have 2 bad knees and I have put off having replacement surgery on one knee. I was depending quite a bit on the other knee to carry me through putting off the surgery as long as I could. Well it got to the point where my good knee has become my bad knee with pain. Q: What did you previously use to treat the pain? A: I used more icing and some different types of exercises to build up the quad muscles.. I have had the Synvisc injection in both knees…

PEMF Patient Spotlight: Shaun from Minnesota

Q: When did your knee pain start? A: I have systemic lupus which is an autoimmune disease, so I’ve had a lot of trouble with many of the joints in my body. My right knee started having problems when I was young after an old injury. I’ve had it since I was 16. Q: What did you previously use to treat the pain? A: I used medication for helping with the pain, but after many years it was difficult to be on it so I tried to take as little of that as possible. I’ve used steroid shots in my…

PEMF Patient Spotlight: Andrea from Minnesota

Q: When did your knee pain start? A: I had nerve pain and that was what brought me to a chiropractor in the first place. Then that went away and this new pain started. It spreads throughout the back of my leg. I also had a cyst behind my knee, so that has been causing the pain. Q: What did you previously use to treat the pain? A: The doc had adjusted my knee and taped it. He has been doing ultrasound to try to break up the cyst and then he also suggested that I use the OrthoCor Active…

PEMF Patient Spotlight: Ann from Minnesota

Q: When did your knee pain start? A: It started back probably 15 years ago when I took a fall. Five or six years ago I started getting arthritis in that area too. Then it was hard to tell if I was having pain from the knee or arthritis. It was a little bit of a crossover. From the get-go my knee has been bone on bone. So my doctors keep telling me I should have surgery. I’m not comfortable with that. Q: What did you previously use to treat the pain? A: I started off by taking cortisone shots…

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…
