Characteristics of artificial hip joint: An artificial hip joint is the replacement of a joint damaged by injury or wear-and-tear with an artificial joint, most often made from a combination of metal and plastic. The first artificial hip joints were used in the 1950s. Hip replacement is the most common joint operation, the number of which is about two times greater compared to that of knee replacements. Other joint replacements are under development, including shoulder, elbow, ankle, and even finger joints. Joint replacement surgery and artificial joint implantation are indicated in case of grade IV wear-and-tear of the joint.
Using magnetic therapy in hip joint surgery
In hip joint surgery, Biomag low-frequency pulsed magnetic therapy is indicated before surgery, as it improves tissue vitality, and after surgery to accelerate healing and restore full mobility. In addition, it is also used to treat loose endoprosthesis by improving the condition of the bone tissue and strengthening the prosthesis. Similarly, it is recommended for all fractures where metal screws or plates have been used, and so on. There are no heat effects, shifts of implants or adverse effects on the treated tissues.
Biomag low-frequency pulsed magnetic therapy is a rehabilitation technique which is fully applicable even in the event of hip joint surgery – metal endoprosthesis.
I use the device for endoprotease in both knees. The knees don't hurt me and I can walk without a walking stick.Marie Řeháčková, Vršce
I'm after my left hip-joint surgery - total endoprosthesis. It's been 3 months since I started using magnetotherapy. I can walk without a walking stick in full load after 6 months from the surgery.Mgr. František Bartoňek, Šumvald
I'm after TEP on both knees. Magnetotherapy also helps me, especially when I put both my legs on the bigger magnet.Eva Jánošová, Rumburk
Application of magnetic therapy in hip joint surgery
Before and after hip joint surgery, the following application is recommended. In the preoperative preparation, we use analgesic frequencies of 4-10 Hz alternately with healing frequencies of 10-50 Hz, while postoperatively we mainly use the healing frequencies.
