PEMF Patient Spotlight: Elise from North Dakota

Q: When did your knee pain start?
A:  I was jumping on a trampoline when I blew it out. I am 27 so a little over ten years ago I started having problems. In the last year it has gotten worse. I have had six surgeries and will be having my seventh in May. The OrthoCor Active Knee System has helped a lot.

Q: What did you previously use to treat the pain?
A: Previously, I used pain medication; I’m allergic to all NSAIDs, I can’t take ibuprofen and I can’t use any of the creams they have out there to relieve pain. With pain pills you get to a point where they don’t work because you grow tolerant to them.

Q: How has the pain affected your daily life?
A: My pain has affected my life horribly; it’s hard for me to talk about it because it sucks so bad. Right now it hurts again because the weather is so bad and it makes my arthritis worse. The pain affects my life because I’m not able to do the things I want to do. Things I wouldn’t think about like vacuuming, sweeping or kneeling, it’s horrible.

Q: How has the Active Knee System helped you?
A: Within two days of getting the Active Knee System I noticed less pain in my knee. My biggest thing is playing with my daughter who will be two in August and she is incredibly active. If I didn’t have this I wouldn’t be able to play with her. We live out of town off of a busy highway, if I didn’t have this brace we wouldn’t be able to go outside and play because I wouldn’t be able to chase her.
