Bekhterev’s Disease

Editor: | 10. December 2019

Do you suffer from chronic pain and stiffness in the lower part of your spine? Is the pain at its worst while resting and gets better with activity? Bekhterev’s disease could be the cause of this. Timely diagnosis is essential for treatment which helps mitigate symptoms and decelerate progress of the disease.

Characteristics of Bekhterev’s Disease and its Causes

Bekhterev’s disease (rheumatoid spondylitis or ankylosing spondylitis) is a chronic disease of the spine with symptoms of pain and stiffness of the spine. It has a long-term and gradually worsening development.

Inflammation leads to ankylosis –  substitution of the original connection of the joint by an inflexible fibrous or bony connection. These adhesions in the joint makes its movement impossible.

Ankylosis affects individual segments of the spine, or the whole length of the spine in very developed cases of Bekhterev’s disease.

It is an auto-immune disease, where antibodies attacking its own tissies are produced.

The affected tissues with this disease are:

  • ligaments of the spine,
  • joints of the sacral spine,
  • joint connecting coccyx and pelvis.

The disease can manifest outside of the spine. It can reduce capacity of the thorax, thus limiting full expansion of the lungs, heart insufficiency or renal failure.

When both spine and hip joint are affected, the progression of the disease is worse and treatment more complicated.

Bekhterev’s disease most freqently manifests itself between the ages of 15 and 30, more commonly in men.

The precise cause of this disease remains unkown. Heredity plays a role in its development.

Bekhterev’s Disease Treatment – Rid yourself of the Pain

Bekhterev’s disease requires long-term expert treatment. The disease is not completely treatable, so it is about mitigating symptoms and decelerating progress of the disease.

The core point of successful treatment of Bekhterev’s disease is a timely diagnosis. The disease cannot be prevented, but it is essential to identify it early on.

Treatment is based on rehabilitation and physical therapy. Electric treatment, 3D pulsed therapy and ultrasound therapy are utilized.

Adjustment of lifestyle, healthy diet and spa treatment are all important.

Immunomodulatory drugs, biological treatment, non-steroid rheumatics and Disease Modifyng Antirheumatic Drugs (DMARDs) are usually admistered.

3D Biomag pulse therapy significantly helps treat symptoms of Bekhterev’s disease.

Explanation of chosen terms:

  • Ankylosis – fibrous or bony connection in the joint that replaces the original connective tissue of the joint.
  • Analgesic effect – effect suppressing pain.
  • Non-steroid antirheumatics – non-steroid medicament with analgesic, antipyretic and anti-inflammatory effect.

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 Bekhterev’s disease: 

  • Helps soothe pain.
  • Has anti-inflammatory and anti-oedematous effect.
  • Improves mobility and prevents further damage.
  • 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

Effect of pulse therapy (PEMF) on Bekhterev’s disease is supported by many studies, like the one by a team of authors working at the Department of Neurology of the Saint Petersburg State in 1999 which proves that pulsed therapy (PEMF) is an effective method of treating patients with spondylogenous disease of the nervous system. It follows from the abovementioned that 3D Biomag pulse therapy can help reduce symptoms of Bekhterev’s disease due to its analgesic effect.  More about this 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

I had problems with my cervical spine. Any sharp movement of my head caused trouble. By treating magnetotherapy, the health condition has changed very rapidly, the greatest joy makes me feel painlessly moving my head.

Ladislava Martinková

Me and my husband suffered long-term from pain in the cervical spine and joints. The pain in my shoulder was so great that I could not do my hairs. After six months of treatment, the shoulder is well and the pain in the spine is significantly smaller.

Manželé Sousedíkovi, Zlín

I used to have difficulties with spine and haemorrhoids.The spine pain has gradually retreated and haemorrhoids have healed after used magnetotherapy. My wife's' knee-joint pain has retreated after a month but she continues with treatment.
