|Introduction to PBK System|
Various Electro- therapy have been used for over 100 years to help relieve
pain and stimulate tissue repair. Now, a major leap forward has been
made with a revolutionary, unique treatment available for the first
time with the introduction of the PBK System.
PBK International TherapyŽ is a new technique designed to relieve pain, both acute and chronic, in patients whether caused by sports injury, surgery, age or environmental reasons. It utilises the body's own physiological systems to instigate an accelerated repair mechanism based on the activation of new micro-circulation in the affected areas. Typically, after only four to five repeat sessions patients experience exceptional pain relief, increased joint mobility and increased strength.
|How it works|
PBK System uses software controlled electronic impulses to stimulate
various processes within damaged tissue including neoangiogenesis. A
range of waveforms, frequencies durations and powers are generated to
specifically accelerate the natural tissue repair mechanisms.
These are applied via low voltage impulses through electrodes - painless yet exceptionally effective. The output of the PBK-2C is more like acupuncture than electro-therapy. Impulses are so short-lived that virtually no current is generated. Hence the PBK-2C does not operate as interferrential or TENS-type systems - it is truly unique.
Using results from many clinical, cellular and neurological studies in University Hospitals the PBK System has been continually modified so that it outputs a wide range of treatment applications. Studies are currently underway in a number of sites to find even more treatment applications. Some excellent photographs show how dramatically the PBK-2C can effectively treat peripheral ulcerations.
Specifically, the PBK System stimulates the natural production of endogenous Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) within blood vessels. The consequence of this is an increase in local blood flow plus the release of a new micro-circulation in the treatment area. VEGF stimulates the release of local Nitric Oxide and prostacyclin. These agents have an immediate Anti-Inflammatory effect on tissue resulting in a rapid reduction in pain. Naturally the enhanced flow of blood also increases oxyhaemoglobin, nutrients and hormones into those tissues with all the benefits this brings.
A recently published report details how this mechanism has been studied. Reports discuss how some of the induced mechanisms have been studied. A number of clinical trials in Italy are currently underway - interim reports are available here.
|It is, in effect, unblocking the problems in the tissues and accelerating the body's natural repair processes. Without doubt the PBK System is a truly innovative and effective methodology in the treatment of neuropathy.|
