MBST is an effective therapeutic treatment used to relieve and improve symptoms of Osteoarthritis, Osteoporosis, Tendonitis and degenerative disc disease. It uses the basic principles of MRI, but for healing instead of as a diagnostic technique.
The therapy is not only for humans, but animals too, as much of the bone, tissue and joint problems that present in humans are similar to those diagnosed in dogs and horses. So, if you are a pet owner, you may be interested in MBST as a remedial treatment for your own dog’s or horse’s stiff joints, decreased mobility or bone disease.
Many pedigree animals will at some stage in their lives suffer from bone and joint diseases such as Arthritis. Sadly this is a common problem in popular breeds. Although wonderful family pets, Labradors, for example, have been bred in the UK repeatedly for many years and often suffer from painful and restrictive illnesses later in life. Similarly, thoroughbred horses suffer from ailments related to breeding and these often present in bone, tissue and joint damage.
Most importantly, as a horse or dog owner, if you notice that your pet has reduced mobility, is limping or having difficulty getting up and sitting down, the first thing to do is to consult with your vet. Any sign of discomfort or restricted mobility must be looked at immediately to avoid permanent damage and to give your pet the best chance of recovery and a happier and healthier life long-term.
Recovery is where MBST comes in. Just as in human treatment, there are no side effects and animals should not find the treatment unsettling – it is certainly not painful. Dogs can be treated in their own dog beds, and as there are no harmful rays used, with their owners alongside them. Equally, horses can be treated in their own stables. Injuries treated with MBST may heal quicker, meaning a horse’s recovery time will be reduced allowing them to return to work safely at an earlier date. The therapy also reduces the time it takes for your pet to recover from an operation and can reduce pain. Furthermore, it can be applied over casts and splints and there are no side effects.
The treatment works by exposing and acting on the nuclei of hydrogen atoms to radio waves. This, in turn, stimulates the regeneration and repair of cartilage and bone tissue. Protons reside in the nucleus of hydrogen atoms. These tiny, positively charged particles rotate at a specific speed around their own axis in the earth’s magnetic field. This own rotation makes them exert an outward magnetic force. This magnetic property is used in MRI and in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Therapy for the stimulation and regeneration of diseased tissue.
As with humans, it is key to get a diagnosis confirmed sooner rather than later. Injured dogs treated with MBST may heal quicker, meaning they can get back to enjoying a carefree and pain-free life earlier – so lots of long walks then!
