Belarusian scientists develop new method for treating rheumatoid arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is a rather insidious inflammatory disease that causes joint pain and deformity. The disease usually develops after 30 and, according to statistics, women suffer from this disease three times more often than men.

In the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, patients are traditionally prescribed special medications. Also, to overcome the ailment, physiotherapy methods are used, including magnetotherapy, cryotherapy, and electrotherapy. 

To achieve the most positive effect, scientists from the Belarusian Medical Academy of Postgraduate Education offered to treat rheumatoid arthritis in a new way.

Now the patient's joints can be simultaneously treated with magnet and light therapy. This became possible thanks to a device that Belarusian physics scientists specially created. There are no analogues to it in the world.

The procedure of photomagnetotherapy takes only a few minutes. It is absolutely painless for the patient.

About 150 people have already tested the device: inflammatory activity has decreased, doctors say.

The new method is also applicable to the treatment of other diseases, to improve performance, resistance to stressful situations and stresses. It is moderate physical activity that can become a preventive measure against rheumatoid arthritis. Do swimming, walking, and do gymnastics!
