Aviation Radiology : Teaching series Scheuermann’s disease is a developmental abnormality of the spinal column, which is named after Holger Werfel Scheuermann, who in 1921, described changes in the vertebral endplates and disc spaces that can occur during development and lead to kyphosis of the thoracic spine. The other synonyms are: Vertebral epiphysitis, Osteochondritis of…

V.G Vasishta Bangalore/India Purpose: Sequentially Programmed Electromagnetic Field (SPMF) Therapy utilizes Magnetic Field Generators (MFG) that can be precisely controlled and focused onto the affected tissues. The normal physiological remodelling of cartilage occurs due to piezoelectric stimuli which are lost in osteoarthritic patients. By utilizing specific frequencies in the range of 6-30Hz based on tissue…

VG Vasishta SBF healthcare & research Center, Shivas 39/4, Doddanekundi, Marathalli, Outer Ring Road, Bangalore, Email:vasishtaiam@yahoo.co.in Background: Sequentially programmed magnetic field (SPMF) therapy involves the use of programmed magnetic fields and frequencies which are generated from Magnetic Field Generators (MFGs) based on proton density of target tissue. These are non-thermal, non-ionizing, and have no known…

Vishwanath G Vasishta, Shiva # 39/4, Doddanekundi, Marathalli, Outer Ring Road, Bangalore, 560037, India Background: Sequentially programmed magnetic field (SPMF) therapy involves use of sequentially programmed magnetic fields which are generated from Magnetic Field Generators (MGF’s) based on proton density of target tissue that can be aligned onto the affected tissues in a precisely controlled…

Efficacy of SPMF Therapy in patients with OSTEOARTHRITIS Kneee

Efficacy of SPMF Therapy in patients with OSTEOARTHRITIS Knee [As published in OARSI monthly Magazine] V. G. Vasishta, Former Prof and HOD, Inst. Of Aerospace Med., Indian Air Force, Bangalore, INDIA Purpose: A study to demonstrate the efficacy of SPMF therapy on 1965 patients (390 knees) with clinically and radiologically confirmed osteoarthritis (OA) of the…

Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD)  of spine is caused by progressive degeneration of the spinal discs. Spinal discs are soft, compressible discs that separate the interlocking bones (vertebrae) that make up the spine. The discs act as shock absorbers for the spine, allowing it to flex, bend, and twist. Degenerative disc disease can take place throughout…
