Whilst MBST is an effective treatment for many conditions including osteoporosis and many types of arthritis there are some instances where MBST therapy cannot be used. A contraindication is a factor or condition that a patient may have that prevents a treatment being applied. In this case there are certain contraindications for MBST.
MBST cannot be used if you are pregnant, the effect on your unborn baby is unknown and the risk posed however small should not be entertained. You can soon reconsider MBST treatment after the birth of your baby. There are also certain medical conditions where you should not be treated with MBST including patients with HIV, Leukaemia, patients in the acute phase of rheumatism. You cannot be treated if you have a bacterial infection. Patients with a tumour can be treated but treatment cannot be given in the area affected by the tumour.
In addition to the above mentioned medical conditions we are unable to treat patients if they have had any medical apparatus fitted. If you have a pacemaker, defibrillator or insulin pump you cannot be treated. Even though the MBST equipment only generates a very weak electromagnetic field there may be a risk that it could interfere with the medical equipment.
It is encouraged that patients undergoing MBST treatment should drink up to 3 litres of water a day during the treatment period. Drinking plenty of water helps keep the cells in your body properly hydrated and so helps the MBST induced healing processes.
Some patients experience an increase in pain or discomfort for the first part of the treatment. It is not a common occurrence and the discomfort subsides towards the end of the treatment. After the treatment has ended many patients experience a significant reduction in pain whilst resting. They have reported that they were able to sleep again where pain had previously disturbed their sleep at night.
Patients are usually advised that during the course of their MBST treatment that they engage in light exercise. This level of exercise should not cause you any pain and is used as part of the healing process.
