Protection of the cartilage in the treatment of knee joint osteoarthritis using pulsed magnetic therapy has been proven in previous studies. However, the research team of M. Fini (2008) moved a step further on this issue and in animal model examined whether this therapy would have similar effects on advanced cases.
In the study of this issue, pulsed magnetic field stimulation significantly slowed the progression of lesions in all observed knee areas.
Pulsed magnetic field caused increased function of A2A and A3 adenosine receptors and thus promoted greater anti-inflammatory action. These receptors, inter alia, dilate blood vessels and improve blood circulation in vascular system.
This study hence demonstrated that pulsed magnetic therapy is effective even in advanced cases with large lesions in knee joints and significantly slows progression of osteoarthritis.
