PST Treatable Conditions

Degenerative Diseases:

  • Arthritis of large (e.g. Gonoarthritis, arthrosis of the knee) and small joints (e.g. spondylitis)

  • Tendonitis/ insertion tendinopathy (e.g. tennis elbow)

  • Lumbago, degenerative disc disease, discopathy (e.g. lumbar disc protrusion)

  • Calcaneal Spur

  • Deforming arthrosis of the hands

  • Gonarthrosis, coxarthrosis, rhizomelic arthrosis of the thumb

Traumatic Injuries:

  • Ligament lesions/ ruptures (e.g. cruciate ligament ruptures)

  • Meniscus injuries

  • Fractures (e.g. cartilage and bone fractures)

  • Pseudoarthrosis (i.e. non- union at fracture site)

  • Soft Tissue Injuries (e.g. Whiplash)

  • Indicated as a Post-Op treatment to sustain healing and improve functional rehabilitation

Inflammatory Diseases:

  • Rheumatic Joint Diseases (e.g. rheumatoid arthritis) *

  • Metabolic Joint Damage (e.g. Gout) *

* Note: PST does not treat the underlying inflammatory disease, but offers a reduction in pain levels and an increase in mobility.

Deformities of the Musculoskeletal System:

  • Spinal Column (e.g. scoliosis**)

  • Foot (e.g. hallux valgus, hallux rigidus, splay foot, club foot, pes planus)

  • Arthrosis of the hands

** PST pertains to pain and impaired function**

Joint Chondromatosis:

  • Cartilaginous changes within the synovial membrane of a joint


  • Perthes Disease

  • Osteochondrosis Dissecans

Treating Arthritis with PST

  • While there are many forms of arthritis that can be treated by PST, one of the most common forms of arthritis that is responsive to PST is osteoarthritis (OA) or degenerative joint disease. OA is a condition that develops gradually, over several years. For some people, the changes are subtle and occur over such a long period of time that they are hardly noticeable. Others, however, may experience gradual worsening, including pain and restricted movement, particularly in large joints such as the hip or knee.

  • In a healthy joint, the layer or cartilage that covers the bone end is very strong, smooth and flexible. It absorbs the stresses put on a joint and protects the bones from damage. In osteoarthritis, this becomes brittle, thin and pitted and over time, can wear out completely. When the cartilage deteriorates, the bone underneath thickens and broadens out. As the cartilage becomes thinner, the bones of the join rub together, causing pain, inflammation and the gradual build-up of bony outgrowths (osteophytes), which make it look knobbly. Also, the joint capsule becomes thicker and the amount of synovial (lubricating) fluid can increase, often causing the joint to swell. This can cause it to become stiff and painful.

  • PST produces magnetic fields that stimulate chondrocytes (cartilage-producing cells) and fibroblasts (connective tissue producing cells) into regenerating their respective tissues. Tissue cultures of chondrocytes stimulated by PST have shown a markedly higher production of cartilage. Because of this, PST can reverse the changes in joint structure caused by arthritis and help to stabilize the joint’s synovial fluid. This will result in a further improvement in overall joint function.

Treating Osteoporosis with PST

  • 1 in every 3 women and 1 in every 5 men in india above 50years of age suffer from osteoporosis. Currently, more women die from complications of osteoporotic fractures than from all cancers of the ovary, uterus and cervix combined, 

  • Osteoporosis means porous bones. It is a silent disease that is not usually diagnosed until a fracture occurs. Bone is a living tissue that is constantly being removed and replaced and as we get older, more bone is naturally lost than is replaced.

  • This causes bone to become fragile and break easily, e.g. through a bump or a fall. Also, if you have one low trauma fracture, this doubles your risk of another fracture due to osteoporosis.

    Osteopenia is the early stage of osteoporosis. Having osteopenia, places a person at the risk of developing osteoporosis. A diagnosis of osteopenia is a warning that you must start taking care of your bones and that prevention methods need to be put in place.

    As a treatment for osteoporosis and osteopenia, EMRT is the natural alternative to medication. It is being applied for the first time in india to stimulate the rejuvenation of bone in patients.

    This is done by re-stimulating osteoblast formation (bone forming cells) and this replaces the bone loss created by osteoporosis. This re-stimulation also retains proteoglycan & chondrocyte composition within the bones and also the cartilage between the bones. Therefore, post EMRT treatment ranges of movements in the spine and hips are greatly increased and postural height is restored – eliminating kyphosis of the upper back or the dowagers hump presentation.

PST treatment will result in the following:

• Increased bone quality
• Re-stimulation of osteoblast formation
• Reduction of pain
• Improved physical resilience
• Increased joint function

Treating Sports Injuries and Bone Fractures with PST

Tried and tested indications for the application of Pulsed Signal Therapy are Sports Injuries. These injuries can be acute, one single event (eg. ACL tear in the knee) or chronic, from overuse or repetition building up in the body for months or even years (eg.Achilles Tendonitis, Impingement Syndrome in the shoulder, Tennis Elbow).

As a rule, sports injuries are usually healed in a few weeks. But sometimes the pain persists, and the patients do not regain their initial articular ability in full. In these cases, PST will have beneficial effects on the evolution of the trauma.

PST is a non-invasive alternative or an adjunct to surgery that stimulates the body to repair damaged tissues to speed up the healing process. In fact, we’ve had very positive experiences in the clinic with PST shortening the healing time of 40%. As an example: A Grade II Ankle Sprain that usually may take 3-4 weeks, has been brought right within 2 weeks. And this is a natural heal, with none of the harsh adverse side-effects associated with injections and medications.

PST works with ALL types of connective tissue: Bone, Cartilage, Ligament, Tendon, Blood, Collagen, Adipose (fatty tissue) and therefor speeds up the processes of:

  • cartilage rejuvenation (knees, shoulder, hip)

  • cruciate (post-op) recovery

  • meniscus tears

  • ligament sprain/ rupture

  • tendon damage/ rupture

  • tendonitis (achilles, tennis elbow, golfers elbow, shoulder tendonitis)

  • rotator cuff damage

  • impingement syndromes in the shoulder

  • dislocations/ relocation of joints

  • muscle tear/ scar tissue damage

  • bone strengthening

  • malunion of fractures

  • microfractures (pre/post surgery)

Note: During and after the PST sessions, there is no need for physical therapy/ physio treatment. This in fact replaces it <3-6 weeks. We will actually tie in with your physical therapist/ doctor if requested for follow-up.
