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 helped to reduce the pain and strengthen the leg and knee area. Yoga and Pilates are very helpful but not having the time, energy, and figuring out a daily schedule to do it, makes it easier to be pushed aside. It was never a panacea but it was a partial remedy.

Q: How has the pain affected your daily life?
A: It definitely affected my mobility and my ability to run. I don’t run anymore. I am in this enrichment program with kids that I mentor. I play sports with them but not nearly as to the levels that I would like. I’m working on getting my knees back so I can do more of that.

Q: How has the Active Knee System helped you?
A: I would say that I noticed progress within the first few day. If I do it on one knee and not the other, I can tell somewhat significantly that the one knee that used the brace is feeling better than the other. My neurons in my head aren’t spending time thinking about it so I can think clearer and use my energy not focusing on that knee pain. What I like about it is that it gives me enough hope and reduction in pain that keeps me energized for my journey.
