If you’re struggling with a musculoskeletal condition and need relief, EMTT is an exciting new treatment that can help you get the results you want easier than ever before. Whether you’re a competitive athlete or live with a number of chronic conditions, this new therapy approach is designed with your needs and recovery in mind.

What is Extracorporeal Magnetotransduction Therapy?

Extracorporeal Magnetotransduction Therapy, or EMTT, is a highly effective and non-invasive electromagnetic therapy designed to treat musculoskeletal conditions. Among other benefits, EMTT is used to reduce inflammation and accelerate your body’s natural healing process through stimulation of impaired tissues. Although EMTT is a separate treatment from Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT), they are considered complementary to each other in many cases. In fact, many people who use EMTT and EPAT together in their therapy see even better results compared to using one treatment alone.

How Can Extracorporeal Magnetotransduction Therapy Help Me?

As an alternative to traditional treatment methods such as medication, injections and surgery, EMTT is designed to reduce inflammation within the body noninvasively. This makes EMTT a great treatment option for a very wide range of conditions and inflammatory processes that in many cases go untreated. Because of this, EMTT is highly successful for managing degenerative conditions such as arthritis and degenerative joint disease.

When looking at the difference between EMTT and EPAT, it’s important to know that EPAT focuses on a local treatment area with acoustic energy, while EMTT acts on a regional treatment area using high-energy electromagnetic radiation.

EMTT can provide several benefits including:

  • Acceleration of your body’s natural healing process
  • Normalization of cell membranes within dysfunctional tissues
  • Mechanical activation of cell membrane ion channels for improved function
  • Stimulation of local metabolism for improved cellular health and tissue healing
  • Regional treatment for injured or dysfunctional joints and tissues

While EMTT can be highly effective on its own, the benefits of EMTT can be enhanced when combined with EPAT and other treatments in physical therapy, such as exercise, to help you get better, faster results.

What is an EMTT Treatment Session Like?

An EMTT treatment session using the MAGNETOLITH®  is non-invasive and has almost no side effects. This treatment device is designed with simplicity in mind and is very comfortable for most patients.

Is EMMT The Right Choice for Me?

If you’re experiencing new or stubborn pain related to an inflammatory condition, EMTT may be an effective treatment option for you. This includes a wide range of conditions and diseases from acute injuries such as ligament sprains and muscle strains, degenerative conditions such as arthritis, and fracture recovery.

Most importantly, EMTT has undergone extensive clinical studies to confirm its safety and efficacy for our patients. Used by performance and rehabilitation experts around the world, EMTT is one of the safest forms of electromagnetic therapy available today

The following are just a few examples of injuries and conditions that can be relieved or improved with EMTT

Degenerative Joint Disease
Common conditions such as Osteoarthritis (back, knees, neck, hands, hips,  shoulders, elbows), chondromalacia, herniated discs, and spondylarthrosis.

Pain Management
Acute or Chronic pain involving any major joint including back pain, neck pain, knee pain, shoulder pain, and radiculopathy.

Sports Injuries
Acute or Chronic inflammation of tendons, cartilage, or other joint tissues; tendinitis, muscle strains, and ligament sprains.

Fractures: Some research suggests that application of EMTT after casting accelerates bone healing much faster than the body’s natural healing process, as well as any traditional bone stimulator available today.

Pre and Post Surgery Condition
Tissue management before and and after surgery to encourage faster, more effective tissue healing.

Joint Replacements
Research results indicate that joint replacement bonding is accelerated up to three times faster with the use of EMTT, and may form a stronger bond between your bone and a new prosthesis, potentially reducing bone integrity problems down the road.
