Science Beyond Frontiers (SBF) Healthcare and Research Centre inaugurated a new centre in Basaveshwar Nagar, with Mr Gopalaiah K, MLA, Mahalakshmi Layout Vidhanasabh Constituency, as the Chief Guest. At the event, Ms Sunasha from Maldives spoke about her journey and how she suffered from arthritis and was cured with the help of the Sequentially Programmed Magnetic Field (SPMF) Therapy.
On being asked about the importance of SPMFTM Therapy, Dr VG Vasishta, Wing Commander, and Founder and CEO of SBF Healthcare, said, "OA is caused by progressive degeneration of articular cartilage. Articular cartilage is an avascular anural structure adherent to the articular ends of bone. The continual internal physiological remodelling of cartilage happens due to piezoelectric stimulus i.e., during compression of the cartilage there is generation of weak electro-magnetic fields and thus help in regenerating the cartilage. As such the articular cartilage has very limited regenerative capacity due to limited anabolic capacity and absence of piezo-electric stimulus in osteoarthritis does not allow healing. SPMFTM Therapy restores the missing physiological stimulus thus leading to cartilage regeneration."
Mr Girish IPS, DCP, Bangalore also spoke on the benefits of such therapy, and how people should be encouraged to take the treatment to tackle diseases.
On speaking about the therapy, Mr Gopalaiah K said, "This therapy is a great way to help people overcome osteoarthritis. I hope SBF Healthcare continues discovering such treatments which will help more patients fight other diseases."
The treatment for Osteoarthritis is a 21-days process which requires 60 minutes of the patients' time in total per day. It has been proven to have decreased pain among Osteoarthritis patients without the use of any painkiller drugs, and without any side effects. Both knees can be treated simultaneously, and it is cheaper than knee replacement. It also increases mobility, improves power and stability of the knee joints, while halting the progress of the disease. It does not have effect on co-morbidities (associated medical problems), and patients can carry on their normal activity during the treatment. So far, more than 6000 cases have been treated by SBF Healthcare since its inception.
