Does your knee hurt; is it swollen and unable to bend? Damaged cartilage may be at fault. Injury, sudden movement or quick rotation may be the cause of damaging the meniscus. In order to avoid permanent damage, it is highly advisable to see your physician and start treatment at your earliest convenience.
Characteristics of Cartilage and Meniscus, and Causes of their Damage
Cartilage is tissue that covers the joint ends of bones. It has an elastic structure and allows for significantly decreased friction of contact surfaces.
Meniscus is located in the knee joint and consists of fibrocartilage. It is strong and flexible. Its function is to absorb impact, disperse the weight of the body and prevent wear of the joint cartilage.
Damage to the meniscus is the first step to damaging the whole joint. It constantly rebuilds itself thus repairing damage. Increased load and excess damage can cross the threshold of regenerative capability and lead to susequent thinning. The bone underneath reacts with increased painfulness. Irritation of joint lining leads to an excess amount of fluid in the joint, limited mobility or blockade.
Arthrosis of joints is a typical disease of cartilage which causes its thinning and pain.
Meniscus injury is one of the most common injuries regarding the knee joint. Injury is accompanied by severe pain, swelling and limited joint mobility. There may be a snapping or cracking sound. It is most often caused by a badly coordinated rotation movement in the joint, e.g. during sport activites.
Damaged Cartilage and Meniscus Treatment – Rid yourself of the Issue
Treatment of damaged cartilage must be started early, because damage to the joint will eventually become permanent. Preventative measures play an important role, as in optimal weight, or exercise targeted on joints and muscles.
Treatment is comprehensive, from surgical treatment (including autologous chondrocyte implantation), drug therapy all the way through to increased intake of chondroprotective agents (joint supplements), and to regulated exercise and physical therapy.
Damage to the meniscus usually requires surgical intervention. Joint arthroscopy is performer and provides a view of the whole joint surface, cartilage, ligaments, menisci, and joint capsule. Arthroscopy is both a diagnostic method and minimally invasive surgical method.
3D Biomag pulsed therapy has useful benefits in treating damaged cartilage and meniscus. Its goal is to prevent damage, especially in sportspeople and people performing hard labour and to promote regeneration of cartilage and soft tissues in joints.
Explanation of chosen terms:
- Perichondrium – the connective tissue that envelops cartilage and provides joint nutrition.
- Repair – replacement of damaged or diseased tissue by substitute tissue.
- Autologous chondrocyte implantation – is a biomedical treatment that repairs damage in articular cartilage.
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 damaged cartilage?
- Has anti-inflammatory and anti-oedematous effects.
- Promotes healing and regeneration.
- 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 damaged tissue caused by arthrosis are supported for one by a clinical study performed at the University of Siena in 2016. It proves that there is significant reduction of pain in patients suffering from knee joint arthrosis who had 3D Biomag pulsed therapy (PEMF) applied. It follows from the published text that 3D Biomag pulsed therapy can help treat issues arising from joint arthrosis. More about this 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).
Bělohrad Peat Spa – Lázně Bělohrad
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.

Husband uses magnetotherapy for healing his knee and also our son uses for the meniscus. I believe in the brilliant effects of the device, and it works for everyone differently.Hana Hrdličková, Zaječice
The husband has used a long time the device for an injured trigeminal nerve that was during dental surgery damaged. I have successfully used the meniscus surgery. Almost 14 days after surgery, I went without a crutch.Pí. Hermanová, Karviná
