Case Studies on Osteoarthritis of the Knee

Case 1.

An 85 year old female with severe OA of the knee had been kept awake at night with pain. Prior treatments with anti-inflammatories and cortisone provided temporary, short term relief. CellStim treatment consisted of an IFC arrangement of pads on the medial/ lateral line and inf/ sup poles of patella. Treatments began at 3 times a week and then diminished. After 14 treatments in 10 weeks at 30 Hz/ 300 uA x 10 minutes and .3 Hz/ 40 uA x 10 minutes. The pain reduction indicated 95 % improvement.

Case 2.

A 70 year old male with moderate OA of the knee reports on occasion for treatment of knee pain. Previous treatment with IFC gave some improvement for short term relief. 20 - 30 minute CellStim treatments at .3 Hz and 40 uA biphasic gave lasting (2 weeks - 1 month) of significant relief (90-95% improvement). Pad placement was the same as case 1.

Case 3.

A 70 year old female with chronic OA of the 1st MTP was treated on 3 occasions with Cellstim at .3 Hz at 30 uA biphasic once per week for 3 weeks. The joint was probed (using Qtip electrode probes) moving the probe location every 3 to 5 seconds. After 3 treatments the patient reported 90% improvement.
