Is your fracture healing for a considerably longer period of time than is usual? Or is it not healing at all? Do you still feel pain and experience swelling in the surrounding tissue, especially after exertion? Then you may suffer from pseudoarthrosis (false joint) and it is advisable to see your physician, who will examine the fracture area and suggest suitable treatment.
Characteristics of Pseudoarthrosis (Non-union, False Joint) and its Causes
Pseudoarthrosis (false joint, non-union) develops after fractures when the bone fragments do not union together and remain movable.
It is a fracture healing disorder in which the time of healing takes two times as long as in standard situation with no signs of bone healing.
It is symptomized by increased pain after exertion, movement in the area of pseudoarthrosis, and swelling or redness in the fracture site.
Good healing requires two conditions to be met:
- Fixation of bone fragments and rest for creation of fibroid structures in which salts of calcium get deposited and bone tissue solidifies.
- Good vascular supply and bone nutrition.
We distinguish between vital and non-vital non-union. Vital non-union is caused by bad stability, while non-vital is caused by poor nutrition and bone defects.
Non-union of the scaphoid bone is common due to weak blood supply in the area.
Non-union is usually diagnosed through X-ray imaging and CT scan.
Pseudoarthrosis Treatment – Rid yourself of the Issue
Treatment procedure is dependant of whether the non-union is vital or non-vital.
The methods to be considered are:
- change of fixation,
- revitalisation of the changed bone,
- bone transfer,
- adjustment of the blood supply system,
3D Biomag pulse therapy can be used in the first days after the injury. Its goal is to mitigate pain, accelerate healing and activate production of new bone tissue.
It cannot substitute proper fixation, but significantly promotes metabolic processes that lead to better incorporation of the building materials.
Explanation of chosen terms:
- Parathormone – hormone which is produced in parathyroid glands and regulates the level of calcium in blood.
- Spongioplasty – an operation method used for bone defects where a cavity is filled with cancellous bone.
- Herbert screw – used during scaphoid bone operations as it tightly fixes two parts of the bone together.
- Malunion – a fracture healing disorder, where the fracture heals but not in the correct position.
Patented 3D Biomag pulsed therapy. How does it work?
The basic principle of 3D Biomag magnetotherapy is generating electromagnetic pulses. The generated pulses penetrate through layers of clothing and even body tissues to the place of application. These pulses have specially developed biotropic parameters (e.g. frequency, profile, intensity), thanks to which the pulsed magnetotherapy affects various health conditions.
The term pulse magnetotherapy is most commonly used for physiotherapy using the principle of electromagnetic pulses. The abbreviation PEMF is used in order to be concise.
Patented 3D Biomag technology ensures more precise and uninterrupted pulse profiles, enhances output, and allows pulses to come from various angles. This makes it a completely new and unique medical technology on the market.
What are the benefits of therapy of pseudoarthrosis?
- Helps soothe pain, accelerates healing.
- Activates production of new tissue (rapid production of bone tissue and calcium).
- Increases sensitivity to parathormone.
- Thanks to being easy to use, it can be applied at home.
- It’s a solution with no additional medicaments.
- It’s a non-invasive treatment.

The effects of pulsed therapy - clinical studies
Effects of pulse therapy (PEMF) on fracture healing are supported by many studies: for one, a clinical study by a team lead by W. J. Sharrard in Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield, Great Britain. It shows that PEMF treatment significantly affects healing of tibia fractures, shortens time needed for convalesce and facilitates a better union of bones. It follows from the published text that 3D Biomag pulsed therapy can help treat these issues. More about his scientific study.
Positive effects of pulse magnetic field (PEMF) are evidenced by clinical studies by authorities on the subject and renowned institutions. The newest list of these clinical studies can be found on this page. Contact us and we will gladly help to familiarize yourself with this expert data.
Our department uses pulse magnetic field application very well. We appreciate that not only is there an option to used numbered programmes, but also to set up our own programmes. The device is small and easy to operate with good output.
University hospital Na Bulovce, Prague – Physiotherapy department
We have been utilising pulse magnetic field treatment in our spa for more than 10 years. We use Biomag devices for both physiotherapy and spa treatment. It is very advantageous to combine magnetotherapy with other physiotherapy methods because the effect of magnetotherapy potentiates with other methods (analgesic, anti-oedematous, recovery and myorelaxing).

We are happy with the device. The applicators are also easy to operate, and treatment results are satisfying. Feedback from patients is positive. Average number of applications is 50 per week.
Masaryk hospital, Jilemnice
We quite regularly go to see a needed physician and in the meantime, we use the Biomag device according to our need. We can rely on the device as it can accelerate healing and relieve pain.Ladislav a Marie Kubovi, Praha
My ankle remained stiffed, swollen and very painful after tibia fracture and several months of rehabilitation. After purchased of the magnotherapy device, the pain has stopped, the device helps the entire family.Hana Hobzová, Sázava
