Fracture and Wound Healing

PEMF for Fracture HealingPEMF for Fracture Healing
Most fractures are caused by a trauma to the bone like a fall or a traffic accident. Another cause can be fragile bones due to osteoporosis, or stress fractures in athletes due to overuse. Once a fracture is formed, blood supply to the area will carry nutrients and new bone tissue will be formed with time. Sometimes, however, the bone does not heal properly, leading to a non-union fracture. When blood supply to the affected area is inadequate, new tissue will not form and the bone will not be able to heal.
If the fracture does not show signs of healing for at least three months, it is assumed to be a non-union. These fractures usually continue to cause pain for a long time.

Applying Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields to a fracture, especially a non-union, stimulates the production of nutrients necessary for the healing process like calcium, and improves blood supply to the area, as well as reducing pain. The Curatron PEMF system can also be used with a cast, in order to encourage the body's natural ability to heal the bone. It offers a natural and non-invasive option of treating a fractured bone and reducing pain.

We received the following email from a therapist who successfully treated 3 patients with severely broken bones with the Curatron:

I hope all is well with you and yours. I continue to use the Curatron and have been able to heal 3 individuals of their fractured bones. All three had been recommended for surgical intervention of some kind. All three were able to avoid that outcome through the use of your device and there have been many celebrations in their not having to go under the knife!

Wound HealingWound HealingPulsed Electromagnetic Fields have also been shown to be helpful in case of chronic wounds or skin ulcers. Using PEMF reduces oedema and influences repair processes at a cellular level. Increased collagen production accelerates wound healing as well as the forming of new blood vessels which carry oxygen and nutrients to the affected area, while getting rid of waste materials.

When everything in the body works properly, tissues regenerate naturally. PEMF therapy can help shorten the healing period as it penetrates deep inside cells and bone. When a bone does not heal properly it is mostly due to poor blood circulation to the area. By using PEMF the blood circulation is improved and tissue regeneration is stimulated.
Hereunder is an X-ray of a 35 year old man who underwent a very bad motorcycle accident:

Fractured LegFractured Leg

This guy had his leg squashed between his motorcycle and a heavy truck. As you can see his leg was badly fractured in a few places and he had to undergo surgery in order to reposition the bone fragments with metal plates and screws. This is an X-ray of his leg after the surgery:

Once the bone has been repositioned, he began using the Curatron system daily. After just a few weeks his leg function has improved tremendously and pain was decreased dramatically. With the continued use of the Curatron he was able to walk again properly after a very short time, and X-rays taken a couple of months after the surgery clearly show the healed bone. He is now back to fully functioning and feels great:
