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.

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…
