About Extracorporeal Magnetotransduction Therapy

HelloPhysio offers a new treatment option for the regeneration and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal disorders through Extracorporeal Magnetotransduction Therapy using MAGENTOLITH®. While EMTT Therapy uses a different mechanism of operation than Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), the two modalities are also highly effective when used in conjunction.

EMTT Therapy is a novel technology developed by Storz Medical in Switzerland that offers increased treatment possibilities for many musculoskeletal ailments including bone, tendon, muscle, nerve, and ligament injuries or disorders throughout the body.

This revolutionary treatment helps to enhance the natural healing process of musculoskeletal conditions by using high oscillation frequencies, allowing for deep penetration. It is a state-of-the-art therapy that is non-invasive and features a wide range of therapeutic applications. By targeting the painful areas of the body EMTT Therapy can achieve a therapeutic effect in the cell due to the pulse Intensity. This evidence-based treatment Is an outpatient procedure that is easy to use, has a high level of patient comfort, and has no side effects.

Effective Treatment for Musculoskeletal Conditions

The clinical research behind EMTT Therapy has shown it is an effective treatment for speeding up the natural restorative processes of tendons, bones, nerves, and lower back pain. MAGETOLITH treatment functions by creating an electromagnetic pulse that can penetrate up to 18cm into the body, allowing for the treatment of even deep tissue layers. This innovative treatment technology allows for painful areas of the body to be targeted with high-energy magnetic pulses at a therapeutically effective frequency range. EMTT Therapy helps to activate the metabolism and revitalize the surrounding treatment area to further stimulate self-healing. Using the generated energy, the afflicted area can be treated via energy transfer from the applicator.

The MAGNETOLITH can treat a variety of musculoskeletal diseases including degenerative joint diseases, pain therapy, and sports injuries. The musculoskeletal diseases for treatment specifically include:

  • Osteoarthritis, also known as degenerative joint disease, is the most common form of arthritis, affecting millions of people worldwide, according to the Mayo Clinic. The disorder commonly affects joints as in conditions in the spine such as herniated disc or spondylarthrosis (vertebral joints), and signs of wear and tear (e.g., arthrosis) of the knee, hip, hands, shoulder, or elbow
  • (Chronic) pain or pain that remains constant and persists for three months or longer despite the use of medications or pain management treatments. Types of chronic pain may include lower back pain, lumbalgia, heel pain, tension, or radiculopathies (nerve root pain).
  • Sports injuries or the inflammation (at times persistent and chronic) of the tendons and joints, tendon overuse syndromes, or inflammation of the pubic bone (osteitis pubis).

Treatment sessions using the EMTT technology range in treatment duration from 5 to 20 minutes. Typically, between 6 to 8 sessions are required based on the severity of the condition and the response to the therapy. During the treatment, patients will remain fully clothed, as direct skin contact Is not necessary. EMTT treatment can result in a positive impact on chemical reactions in pathologically altered cells by reactivating cell metabolism and normalizing physiological processes.

Using manual therapy with proper adjunctive state-of-the-art  equipment to enhance tissue healing, our physiotherapists help clients return to pain-free movement faster. Each physiotherapy rehab plan is never the same for each client as we believe in a personalized physio treatment to address each individual’s musculoskeletal injury and life stressors.

We always believe in going one step more at our rehab center in Singapore by providing continuous care that extends beyond just the physical session to adding Telehealth as part of physio treatment plans. From traditional to sports physiotherapy in Singapore, our clinic incorporates the lastest evidenced-based modalities into patient care.

EMTT® is an advanced technology developed in Switzerland for the treatment of bone, tendon, muscle, nerve and ligament injuries or disorders throughout the body. This is a state-of-the-art therapy is a non-invasive, safe alternative to steroid injections and other interventions.

EMTT can be used to as a pain relief practice to reduce inflammation in difficult to treat conditions such as bone injuries, stress fractures and arthritic joints. We also use of the technology in harder-to-treatment of conditions such as tendinopathies at our Novena physiotherapy clinic in Singapore.

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) uses shockwaves outside of the body to harness intense short energy waves to reduce pain and heal chronic orthopedic conditions at our rehab center in Singapore. It is a non-invasive but powerful adjunctive physiotherapy treatment that delivers acoustic waves to injured soft tissue to for pain relief and to promote healing.

Using both Focal and Radial ESWT at our physiotherapy clinic, Shockwave Therapy a non-invasive treatment to assist with quick healing of injured tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments, bone, etc) at a cellular level. Shockwave works by activating a tissue response by making tissues restart the healing faster while creating minimal scarring.

When the COVID pandemic hit globally, rehabilitation and pain relief practice was mandated to go online as physical therapy care at our physio clinics was restricted. The use of digital communication to provide quality treatments ensured continuity and accessibility of care. From that, we realized the effectiveness and the efficiency of telehealth for physiotherapy and rehab.

Research supports telehealth’s benefits to maintain positive client outcomes, especially when it comes to physiotherapy treatment and rehab in Singapore. We all know that life post pandemic has changed and we will continue to provide Telehealth to clients who meet the needs of online consultation.
