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.

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…

PEMF Patient Spotlight: Paulette from Massachusetts
