SBF Healthcare Introduces New Painless Treatment for Arthritis

PR Newswire | 11 Oct, 2013

For ages, human beings have suffered from debilitating diseases like osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disorder of the cartilage in weight bearing joints, associated with pain. In the history of medicine, the only treatment option available for osteoarthritis has been knee replacement. Sequentially Programmed Magnetic Field (SPMF) therapy is a non-surgical treatment to help regenerate or degenerate cells. It has proved to be extremely effective in the treatment of arthritic knee joints. SPMF therapy is a technology that produces highly complex sequentially programmed magnetic fields, which are computer-controlled and can precisely focus on to the target tissues with the help of laser guides. These have no known side-effects of this therapy. SBF Healthcare and Research Centre Pvt. Ltd. offers this treatment at its centres in Bangalore and Mumbai and have treated more than 3000 patients to date.

SPMF is also a cheaper alternative to knee replacement and both knees can be treated simultaneously. This therapy increases mobility, improves power and stability of the knee joints. The progress of the disease is halted. Patients can go about their normal activity during the treatment. It improves quality of life. Many OA patients come in wheelchairs, some use walking sticks. Towards the end of this treatment they do not need the wheel chair and many give up their sticks too. Those that had to give up their daily walks due to the pain resume walking. They develop the confidence to walk on their own. This mode of treatment has been very well accepted. The other alternative is TKR (total knee replacement). Patients fear the surgery involved and the failure of surgery and tend to go thru life with pain. What they now have is a way out; they have another option that they did not have before. They have a treatment with no pain or side effects.

Bangalore has been placed firmly on the world map as a medical tourism destination of choice for patients from overseas. Almost 5000 patients have been treated using this therapy. People from 33 countries all over the world seek this treatment. Earlier Indians had been going abroad for all kinds of treatment. But this is the first time that people from outside India are coming here for this treatment. They are coming not because it is cheap but because this treatment is not available in their country.

Mrs. Pamela Mize-Kurzman, a patient from California says, "When I came to Bangalore from California in January 2008, I was unable to sleep because of hip pain and could not walk without a cane and then only for short distances. It is now 6 months and I have not needed a cane since my return to the US. I sleep all night and do not wake up in the night with knee pain. I can now walk several miles and I have resumed my exercise program, which I had abandoned for a year. My hip pain has been reduced by 75%. I am so glad that I found you."

Dr. Vasishta is the inventor of this new breakthrough, SPMF. He has been the principal investigator in clinical trials in use of this therapy at the Institute of Aerospace Medicine, Indian Air Force, Bangalore. The clinical trials were started on patients suffering from osteoarthritis in Jan 2004 and then cancer in April 2004. The results of the trials have been published in a peer-reviewed journal. The Suvarna Karnataka Rajyotsava award was given to him by the Karnataka Government in 2006 for excellence in medicine for his work on arthritis and cancer. He has also received the Lifetime Health Achievements Award from the Government of India in 2008. "There is much work to be done. My dream is to set up SBF centers in every city in India. I would like all patients to benefit from SPMF. We must wrest as many lives as possible from clutches of osteoarthritis," says Dr. Vasishta, Founder and CEO of SBF Healthcare.
