Therapy for Rheumatism
For the first time, the new and innovative BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy creates the means to stimulate the key regulatory mechanisms of the body's microcirculation by complex means in the event of dysfunction or disease. Recent findings – related to the localized regulation of tissue blood supply and the overarching nervous and humoral regulation – have presented a promising method of using biorhythmically defined stimulative signals to generate a therapeutic physical stimulation of restricted or dysfunctional blood flow through organs.
Healing Processes with Rheumatism
By restoring an adequate supply of blood to the relevant tissue cells, the fundamental requirement for the healing process of degenerative diseases of the musculoskeletal structure is met – thereby also establishing the conditions needed for the relief of rheumatic discomfort. Targeted treatment of individual areas in the case of rheumatism, however, must be achieved by means of simultaneous physiotherapeutic or pharmaceutical measures. However, these measures alone would only be of limited success or entirely unsuccessful.
The Use of BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy in Supporting the Treatment of Rheumatism
Many healthcare-related problems, including rheumatism, are not caused by the general failure of the organism's control systems. In fact, the opposite holds true – the control systems continue to work, they just work in the wrong place, at the wrong time or with dysfunctional biorhythms. For this reason, the aim of any therapeutic procedure must be to stimulate the body's own regulatory mechanisms in such a way that the dysfunction at hand can be brought under control by the organism itself using the natural mechanisms in place.
BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy for Rheumatism
BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy is a scientifically proven and effective procedure that stimulates the movement of microvessels, which in turn can improve the supply and disposal of tissue and organ cells and consequently their performance.
Around 50 percent of all conditions that cause rheumatism are degenerative disorders, i.e. they cause the body to wear down. Such wear is also referred to as arthrosis. They affect large joints, among them the hip and knee, but also vertebral discs and the spinal column. Arthrosis of the vertebral discs is particularly painful. Just 10 percent of joint disorders are inflammatory, the remaining 90 percent are degenerative and can therefore not be treated with medication or physiotherapy.
Rheumatism causes intense pain
Pain is always the first symptom of rheumatism. Other dysfunction only occurs as the disease progresses. In the early stages, the pain is largely outside the joint, for example in the tendons and muscles. The pain that occurs when applying loads, first moving the joints after a longer period, and when the joints are tired is referred to as "mechanical" pain, while the sustained pain occurring at night and while at rest in the advanced stages are referred to as "inflammatory" pain. The abrasion of cartilage and bone particles can cause the inner layer of the joint capsule to become inflamed, which in turn causes and signs of acute inflammation.
Rheumatism – Painful to Move
As with any other system in our body, our musculoskeletal system is developed from a variety of specific cellular tissues and is only as good as the performance of the cells involved. Some disorders of the musculoskeletal system are due to genetic and anatomical dysfunctions and can therefore not be treated at their source. Most diseases, however, are caused by external influences such as overloading of the joint, the workplace or heavy lifting. Added to this are other factors, for example obesity and lack of exercise, and these can be influenced by certain preventative measures.
Blood Flow in Muscles for Sufferers of Rheumatism
Impaired blood flow in the microcirculation (the smallest blood vessels) in cellular tissues prevents both oxygen and nutrients from reaching the tissue cells. As a result, these cells cannot perform in the way that they should. If, in turn, the required structural proteins, enzymes or information and transport proteins are not available for metabolic processes in bones, muscles or ligaments, health problems will occur. This is why microcirculation must be ensured, to enable the effectiveness of all other measures.
Rheumatism and Circulation
The human organism consists of 80–100 trillion cells that are supplied by the blood and its constituents. For this purpose, it needs to circulate in our body. Macrocirculation encompasses the heart, the large pump used to draw and push the blood, and the major arteries. The blood is transported into the major arteries using the pressure generated in the heart. As the arteries continue to branch out more and more and their cross sections become ever smaller, they ultimately become smaller and thinner than our hair. This pressure is no longer effective in the microvessels. Blood flow plays a key role in rheumatism. Rheumatism is characterized by pain, deformation, and difficulties with moving to varying extents.
Assisting the Circulation in Rheumatism Patients
All blood vessels, with the exception of the capillaries, are surrounded by a layer of muscle. Whenever these muscles contract, the vessels are squeezed together, causing the blood to try and take an alternate route. The way back is blocked off due to a heart valve located between the heart and the artery, so it can only move forwards through the capillaries. The tensioning and relaxation of the muscles is also referred to as vasomotion. To ensure that enough blood is always transported and that the needs of the cells are met, these vasomotions must be repeated frequently enough. In a healthy person, there are between around three and five vasomotions a minute. As a result of lack of exercise, poor diet or too much stress, there is the risk that the frequency of these vasomotions is reduced. In older and sick people, this rate even drops drastically, going as low as a single vasomotion every ten minutes. This causes the body's cells to be starved of the nutrients that they need. The metabolic waste by-products cannot be correctly disposed of. As a result, the condition of the rheumatism patient continues to decline.
Breaking the Vicious Circle
But how can the vicious circle of rheumatism be broken, and how can the reduction in the number of vasomotions be prevented? This ingredient, which is physical in nature, not chemical, is something quite new.
Effective Treatment of Rheumatism – BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy
Chemical substances have been used for a long time to influence the human organism. Everyone has received many active substances in the course of their life in the form of injections, infusions, or tablets. But what conditions does a physical agent have to meet to effectively treat rheumatism? What we do know is that it must be tolerable, it must be easy to apply – and the body must react positively to it. Examples of known physical methods include therapies using heat, light, water, or electrical current.
