How magnetostimulation, magnetoledotherapy and magnetotherapy work in the treatment of peripheral osteoarthritis

Reduce the symptoms and stop the progression of the disease

Therapy with pulsed magnetic field and LED Viofor light — magnetostimulation, magnetoledotherapy — in the treatment and rehabilitation of the degenerative joint disease helps to reduce the symptoms of the disease and slow its progression. In the treatment of patients with degenerative disease, physiotherapeutic procedures are used as a form of non-pharmacological treatment. They help maintain mobility and reduce pain symptoms of the osteoarticular system. The safety of Viofor treatments and the lack of side effects have been confirmed in 340 clinical studies.

Viofor therapies support and complement the primary treatment of degenerative joint conditions. Magnetostimulation and magnetoledotherapy are also recommended as a preparatory method prior to physiotherapy, as they effectively reduce pain, thereby enabling the implementation of exercises that were previously hindered by existing pain symptoms in the treated joint.

“Analyzing the obtained results, a significant statistical improvement can be observed — both in the reduction of pain in the subjects and a significant increase in the mobility of the examined joint.”

How magnetostimulation, magnetoledotherapy and magnetotherapy work in the treatment of peripheral osteoarthritis

Pulsed magnetic field therapy and LED light therapy in the treatment of osteoarthritis of the joints

Effective pain relief

Osteoarthritis is a chronic and progressive disease. Viofor’s magnetic field is non-pharmacological methods of alleviating its troubling symptoms. The effect of Viofor therapy can support the treatment not only of the degenerative disease of the peripheral joints, but also has applications in other diseases of this type, such as changes in the degenerative disease of the spinal joints.

The obtained effects of Viofor therapy are the result of the following:

Analgesic effect — an increase in the secretion of endogenous opiates (β-endorphins) is one of the mechanisms of analgesic activity. The analgesic effect also lasts after the series of magnetic field and light treatments have been completed. The increasing concentration of β-endorphins explains the perceived significant decrease in pain in the joints and reduces the dynamics of taking painkillers.

Anti-inflammatory effect – Viofor’s pulsed magnetic field stimulates the formation of c-AMP and prostaglandin E. This prostaglandin stimulates the accumulation of c-AMP molecules at the site of inflammation, which reduces the secretion of inflammation mediators from netrophils, basophils, fat cells and lymphocytes.

Regenerative action – stimulation of cell nutrition and the regulation of intercellular processes lead to tissue regeneration.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

The Viofor System is a family of innovative medical devices. The products are applied in the treatment, rehabilitation, and biological regeneration. The utilized forms of energy include pulsed magnetic field and LED light.
Viofor therapies are primarily used in:
  • Musculoskeletal disorders
  • Post-fractures, injuries, and trauma
  • Neurological conditions
  • Treatment of pain
  • Non-healing wounds and burns
  • Dental complications and issues
  • Biological regeneration and psychoprophylaxis
A list of conditions and diseases in which Viofor therapies are applied can be found in the Applications section. If you cannot find your specific condition or have doubts about how Viofor therapies can help you, please contact us. We will definitely assist you!
The set consists of a control unit and applicators. The Viofor control unit models differ in terms of therapy options. The applicators, which are connected to the control unit, emit magnetic fields and/or light, allowing for the chosen form of therapy (magnetostimulation,  magnetic-led therapy). The selection of the controller and applicators depends on the specific needs of the condition and individual client or the profile of the facility where the Viofor treatments will be performed.
The Viofor ser typically includes:
  • Control Unit
  • Selected applicators
  • Power Supply
  • User Manual
  • Adaptor- allows to correct application of the magnetic field simultaneously from two applicators
To carry out magnetostimulation treatment, you will need a Viofor control unit that generates the therapeutic pulsed magnetic field and a magnetostimulation applicator. The therapy primarily relies on exposing the entire body. The targeted area should be positioned within the effective range of the magnetic field, which can be achieved by placing it inside the coil of a ring applicator, on the surface of a mat, or between two flat applicators. Importantly, the magnetic field easily permeates through clothing, dressings, and even casts without hindrance.
Magnetic-LED therapy - magnetoledotherapy - utilizes specific applicators to deliver localized treatments to different body regions. Panel applicators are employed for larger areas, such as the back, while specialized applicators are used for more targeted treatments, such as those in dentistry. During the treatment, both light and magnetic fields are simultaneously applied from a single applicator. LED light treatments are performed on exposed areas of the body. LED applicators are designed for close or direct contact, as long as the skin is free from infection and properly cleansed. It is important to ensure that the applicator surface remains parallel to the treated area during the procedure.
