The exact cause of arthritis in unknown, but it is generally accepted that arthritis is triggered by a combination of genetic and environmental factors.

The Curatron systems help decrease the pain and swelling by improving and increasing the transport and absorption of calcium in bones, resulting in the improved quality of cartilage in joints and in dramatic decrease of pain.

Just take a look at these X-rays of a 65 year old woman, sent to us by Dr. Ashfahk Ahmed from Bangalore in India:

These are the X-rays taken before her treatment with the Curatron. This woman came in with Tricompartmental Degenerative Osteoarthritis of both knees, suffering from excruciating pain. The cartilage between her bones has disappeared almost completely in several locations. As a result, she was hardly able to walk or sleep during the night.

Now take a look at the X-rays taken after 5 months of treatment with the Curatron:

One can clearly see that the distance between the bones has increased due to regeneration of cartilage.

Following the treatment, the patient stated that she is now able to walk and bend her knee joints, and can finally get a good night’s sleep!

Another patient who came in to Dr. Ahmed’s clinic was suffering from severe osteoarthritis of both knees, which caused pain and swelling in her knees, making it impossible to walk. Here you can see an X-ray of this 60 year old lady, taken before she underwent treatment with the Curatron:

This X-ray shows that lots of cartilage at several different locations in both knees of this patient had almost completely disappeared.

The following X-ray, taken after a series of treatments with the Curatron over a period of 4 months, clearly shows very successful regeneration of new cartilage between joints, enabling her to walk again.
