Antiphlogistic irradiation and stimulating X-ray therapy


Stimulating X-ray therapy has primarily anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects and is therefore applicable for patients with degenerative or inflammatory diseases of the joints (osteoarthritis, bursitis) as well as with benign tumors, i.e. thyroid eye disease or scar keloids. This gentle form of irradiation is especially suited for patients with osteoarthritis of the joints (hand, shoulder, hip, knee) as well as for patients suffering from calcaneal spur or lateral epicondylitis (archer’s elbow).

In total, a therapy cycle consists of 6 single irradiations carried out in one or two sessions per week during the course of 3 weeks.

Irradiation typically lasts one to two minutes and is completely pain-free. 70% of patients report a pain-relieving effect or even a lasting absence of pain. About two months after a completed therapy cycle, a decision can be made regarding either another follow-up irradiation cycle or an already satisfying therapy result without any need for further treatment.

Main areas of irradiation:

  • calcaneal spurs
  • osteoarthritis of the joints (fingers, hands, feet, shoulders, hips, knees)
  • bursitis
    such as archer’s elbow, shoulder impingement syndrome or tendonitis of the hip
  • connective tissue diseases
    such as Dupuytren’s contracture (a benign disorder of the palm’s connective tissue), plantar fascial fibromatosis (Ledderhose’s disease, a benign thickening of the feet’s deep connective tissue) or thyroid eye disease (an autoimmune inflammatory disorder affecting the orbit around the eye)
