RADIATION THERAPY

Radiation therapy for benign joint diseases
X-ray stimulation is a low-risk and low-side-effect radiation therapy for treating pain in benign diseases. X-ray stimulation is mainly used to treat inflammatory joint diseases such as osteoarthritis. Treated the diseased area with a low dose of radiation. There is a regression of the inflammatory changes and thereby also the pain symptoms. As a rule, however, the improvement is not noticeable immediately, but only sets in with a delay of sometimes several weeks.

indication
-knee osteoarthritis (gonarthrosis)
-Hip osteoarthritis (coxarthrosis)
-heel spur (calcaneodynia)
-painful frozen shoulder (periarthropathia humeroscapularis)
-achilles tendon irritation (achillodynia)
-tennis elbow, golfer arm (medial and lateral epicondylopathy)
-avoiding ossification after joint operations (heterotopic ossifications)

-tendon shortenings on the hands and feet (Morbus Dupuytren’s disease and
 Morbus Ledderhose) decisive for the success of the treatment is the use of
 radiation therapy in the early stage of the disease – stage N

Procedure and preparation before radiation therapy
Depending on the disease and the specific treatment goal, a suitable field size and the energy of the X-ray radiation are selected at the beginning. The individual irradiation time is calculated from this.
A series of treatments usually consists of six treatments administered two to three times a week. A single exposure only takes about 20 seconds. If the improvement is not satisfactory, the entire series of therapy can be repeated a second time.
