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.

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…

PEMF Patient Spotlight: Jeanne from Minnesota

Q: When did your knee pain start? A: It was a while back. St. Croix Orthopedics took an x-ray and it showed I didn’t have any cartilage in the knee. It’s very painful. Its like bone rubbing on bone. Q: What did you previously use to treat the pain? A: With my mother she had cortisone shots. They thought the cortisone shot would work because it worked for my mother. I tried the Cortisone shot and all it did was make it hurt more. Cortisone shots don’t work for me. My mother did surgery when she was 88 and ended up…
