Do you suffer from lack of sleep due to severe pain in your hip? Does the pain linger for a long time and common medication no longer works? It is possible that your physician will recommend surgical hip joint replacement. Good quality physical therapy before and after the surgery helps achieve the ability to perform everyday tasks.
Characteristics of Hip Joint Replacement and its Indications
Hip joint replacement (endoprosthesis) is the replacement of a hip joint damaged by wear and tear or injury for an artificial joint. Most frequently, the artificial joint is from a combination of metal and plastic. The first artificial hip joints were used in 1950s.
The most frequently replaced joint is the hip joint. Knee joint is second most replaced (about a half of the number of hip joint replacements). Replacement of other joints is in development as well – shoulder, elbow, ankle, and also finger joints.
Nowadays minimally invasive surgery of the hip joint is preferred as it means less scarring and reduced blood loss, shorter hospital stay and a faster return to common activities.
Indications for hip replacement are advanced stage damage and cases where conservative treatment fails. It is a condition in which joint functionality is significantly damaged, or the joint is the source of severe pain.
The most common causes of joint replacement are:
- bone tumour,
- and others.
Treatment before and after Hip Joint Replacement – Rid yourself of issues
Within a few days post-surgery, depending on the recommendations of the doctors, it is recommended to slowly increase use of the joint. With the use of crutches, first steps can be taken.
After being discharged from the hospital, the patient is transferred to rehabilitation treatment. Its goal is to achieve full functionality of the joint and make returning to performing everyday activities possible.
The patient is entitled to start spa treatment. This can be started immediately after being discharged from hospital.
3D Biomag pulsed therapy plays a big role in rehabilitation treatment. It is a rehabilitation method that can be used even in cases when there are metal parts in the artificial joint, such as endoprostheses, screws, splints, stents and others.
3D Biomag therapy is indicated before the surgery, when it improves tissue vitality. And, also, post-surgery, when it accelerates healing and a return to full functionality. Apart from this, it helps with loosening endoprostheses, improving the condition of bone tissues and to reinforce the prosthesis.
Explanation of chosen terms:
- Reimplantation– repeated implantation.
- Endoprosthesis – prosthesis, implanted into the human body (e.g. total endoprosthesis of the hip joint – TEP)
Patented 3D Biomag pulsed therapy. How does it work?
The basic principle of 3D Biomag magnetotherapy is generating electromagnetic pulses. The generated pulses penetrate through layers of clothing and even body tissues to the place of application. These pulses have specially developed biotropic parameters (e.g. frequency, profile, intensity), thanks to which the pulsed magnetotherapy affects various health conditions.
The term pulse magnetotherapy is most commonly used for physiotherapy using the principle of electromagnetic pulses. The abbreviation PEMF is used in order to be concise.
Patented 3D Biomag technology ensures more precise and uninterrupted pulse profiles, enhances output, and allows pulses to come from various angles. This makes it a completely new and unique medical technology on the market.
What are the benefits of therapy in case of hip joint replacement?
- Has analgesic effect.
- Has regenerative effect on bone tissue.
- Thanks to being easy to use, it can be applied at home.
- It’s a solution with no additional medicaments.
- It’s a non-invasive treatment.

The effects of pulsed therapy - clinical studies
The clinically-most-significant effects of 3D Biomag pulsed therapy in patients after hip joint replacement is mainly are the analgesic (pain-killing) regenerative and healing effects.
Positive effects of pulse magnetic field (PEMF) are evidenced by clinical studies by authorities on the subject and renowned institutions. The newest list of these clinical studies can be found on this page. Contact us and we will gladly help to familiarize yourself with this expert data.
Our department uses pulse magnetic field application very well. We appreciate that not only is there an option to used numbered programmes, but also to set up our own programmes. The device is small and easy to operate with good output.
University hospital Na Bulovce, Prague – Physiotherapy department
We have been utilising pulse magnetic field treatment in our spa for more than 10 years. We use Biomag devices for both physiotherapy and spa treatment. It is very advantageous to combine magnetotherapy with other physiotherapy methods because the effect of magnetotherapy potentiates with other methods (analgesic, anti-oedematous, recovery and myorelaxing).

We are happy with the device. The applicators are also easy to operate, and treatment results are satisfying. Feedback from patients is positive. Average number of applications is 50 per week.

I'm after TEP on both knees. Magnetotherapy also helps me, especially when I put both my legs on the bigger magnet.Eva Jánošová, Rumburk
I'm after my left hip-joint surgery - total endoprosthesis. It's been 3 months since I started using magnetotherapy. I can walk without a walking stick in full load after 6 months from the surgery.Mgr. František Bartoňek, Šumvald
I use the device for endoprotease in both knees. The knees don't hurt me and I can walk without a walking stick.Marie Řeháčková, Vršce
