MBST or Magnetic Resonance Therapy is the use of magnetic resonance in the treatment of conditions such as arthritis, tendinopathies, osteoporosis, degenerative spine diseases as well as degenerative wear and sports injuries.
The technology is based on Magnetic Resonance Tomography (MRT) which is high resolution body scanning technology. MBST is a patented technology that is not to be confused with other magnetic therapies that share similar names that use a more simpler pulsed magnetic field rather than the three varying electromagnetic fields used in MBST technology.
Specific MBST devices have been developed to treat different areas of the body and to treat specific conditions. Essentially the treatment works by exposing and acting on the nuclei of hydrogen atoms to radio waves. This in turn stimulates the regeneration and repair of cartilage and bone tissue.
There have been several medical studies carried out in Germany where the MBST technology was developed by MedTec. The study conducted by the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Rheumatology et al and presented to the 56th annual convention of the south German Orthopaedic Association on May 2008 in Baden-Baden showed that MBST treatment improved finger function in arthritis sufferers in this double blind placebo controlled randomised study.
Whilst this is still a new and relatively unknown therapy many scientific studies carried out in Germany, Austria and a few in the UK have shown the effectiveness of this treatment on conditions such as arthritis.
There are still relatively few practitioners in the UK at this time although treatment centres are much more widespread in Europe. Ann Clare has been effectively treating patients with magnetic resonance therapy for several years with amazing results and with absolutely no side effects.
Ann is driven by the positive effects that MBST combined with decades of Physiotherapy experience has had on patients increased mobility and reduction in pain associated with their condition. This treatment is not suitable for everyone but is offered to those who in Ann's years of experience would get the most benefit.
MBST is a pain free and non-intrusive procedure that much akin to having an MRI scan. You are able to relax or even read during the duration of the treatment. David, a recent patient sums up the whole experience of having MBST Magnetic Resonance Therapy treatment very well from the patients perspective.
