MAGNAWAVE AFTER SURGERY
MAGNAWAVE AFTER SURGERY, KNEE REPLACEMENT, BAKERS CYSTS, AND JOINT ISSUES
We always recommend that after any type of surgical procedure you want to make sure that any bleeding associated with the surgery is contained, in other words there is no active bleeding. Once that’s resolved you can begin MagnaWave after surgery at a low to a moderate setting for five to ten minutes. This will aid in inflammation reduction to the area and help the healing process, even potentially speeding up the healing process.
It’s been shown that speeding up the healing process is what MagnaWave after surgery accomplishes. It enhances the healing process of the body, which is achieved by improving the oxygenation. The MagnaWave signal makes the cell membrane become more permeable, allowing for the cells to better take up the oxygen that’s available to them in the body. When you increase the oxygenation of the blood cells they’re better able to do their job, which is to reduce inflammation and thereby relieve pain.
What about having a knee replacement? Is it safe to use MagnaWave after surgery on a knee replacement? When can I begin MagnaWave after the knee replacement?
Once everything is stabilized is when you can begin MagnaWave after the surgery. MagnaWave has been used on people as early as the afternoon after their surgery, or the next day post-surgery to help reduce inflammation and relieve pain, which improves mobility therein allowing the individual to get on their feet faster. It’s a lot like it is with implants. It won’t harm the new knee. MagnaWave is safe to use around implants. We’ve not had any issues where it is not safe, or is problematic to use around implants, rod, or screws.
WILL MAGNAWAVE HELP WITH BAKER’S CYSTS?
Baker’s cysts, also known as popliteal cysts, are fluid-filled cysts that cause a knot and feeling of tightness behind the knee. The discomfort may worsen when the leg is flexed or the knee extended, also when you’re most active. Baker’s Cysts are typically the result of a problem with the knee joint often caused by arthritis or a tear. Both arthritis and cartilage tears trigger the knee to produce too much fluid usually leading to the cyst.
Symptoms of a Baker’s Cyst may worsen after extended periods standing, and may include:
- Swelling behind your knee, and sometimes in your leg
- Knee pain
- Stiffness and inability to fully flex the knee
MagnaWave may help reduce pain and inflammation from Baker’s Cysts.
