Oakwood MBST

Changing the way pain is treated...

A revolutionary treatment…

MBST is a non-invasive, game changing treatment, specialising in reducing pain, swelling and improving functional activities.

Hugely effective in reducing pain…

MBST is also used to reduce pain in joints, muscles and tendons, bone & bone metabolism disorders, plus Arthritis and cartilage treatments, as well as speeding up general healing in the body…

How Does MBST Work?

  • The cells that cover our joints are called Chondrocytes which form a smooth friction free surface on which our joints move. They make their own low oxygen and low energy environment and get their energy from dismantling other proteins which diffuse into them.

    Various factors such as chronic inflammation and trauma, all contribute to cell damage. Inflammation is the start of the attempted healing phase, but it only has a short time to complete its repair tasks, otherwise the healing phase is interrupted. This can lead to degenerative conditions such as Osteoarthritis unless kept under control.

    A constant energy supply is needed by the cells to orchestrate and direct these processes towards repair, which is reduced as we age.

    This energy comes from cellular fuel called ATP which is made in specialised cells within the chondrocyte’s environment called Mitochondria.

    Cellular energy is regulated and monitored by a specialised protein called AMPK. This protein is the energy control centre of the cell and plays a pivotal role in regulating whether the cells live or die.

    When low cellular energy is detected, a message is sent along specialist pathways that fire up the cell’s engines to fold in on themselves and produce more energy. This process is termed Autophagy.

    In Osteoarthritis and other degenerative conditions, there are reduced levels of ATP and Autophagy resulting in the cells not being allowed to survive.

    MBST delivers a targeted energy directly into the damaged cells, stocking up their energy reserves, which prevents destructive inflammatory reactions being activated and promotes cellular repair.

  • MBST is made up of a treatment unit that uses three different electro-magnetic fields. The magnetic fields alternate, reacting with the damaged cells in order to stimulate their regeneration. This results in increased function of the joint, often eliminating the need for surgery.

    Patients can be treated whilst relaxing, lying down or in a chair, depending on the area being treated by MBST. Most patients can be treated over seven to nine sessions.

  • MBST has known to be successful in treating the conditions:

    • Osteoarthritis
    • Osteoporosis
    • Muscle, Ligament and Tendon Damage
    • Sports and Accident Injuries
    • Bruised Bones
    • Cartilage Damage
    • Fractures
    • Nerve Damage after injury/surgery

What to expect when undergoing MBST treatment…

  • Typically, you will spend £1,500 for 9 treatment hours, however there are cheaper options for different pathologies.

    • Nine, 1-hour sessions, in which time you can move around in a non-claustrophobic environment (if you need to get up and go to the loo that is no problem!).
    • You do not need to take your clothes off, the only thing we will ask you to remove is your smart watch.
    • If you do wear a pacemaker, that is okay, we will just need to check it first.
    • Yes, you will need a pre-MBST physiotherapy assessment by one of our five Chartered Physiotherapists.
    • MBST may not be suitable for your pathology which may require an alternative therapy. One our physiotherapists will direct you to the most relevant pathway to optimise healing.
  • A typical timeline of many patients we refer for MBST would be:
    1. You have a condition that is painful, does not respond to painkillers or improve over time.
    2. You review the options available to manage your symptoms and pain.
    3. Usually this would involve conventional treatment with the NHS i.e., taking painkillers until you are assessed and possibly referred for surgery.
    4. You have undergone a series of exercises which have exacerbated your symptoms.
    At Oakwood MBST we have another option…

    Book a Physiotherapy consultation with one of our Physiotherapists, who will assess and discuss your suitability for MBST treatment.

  • To date, there are no known side effects.
    However, we do advise all our patients to drink 3+ litres of water whilst you are undergoing your treatment to maintain a good level of hydration.

  • Some patients can respond very quickly and notice a huge reduction in pain after a few treatment sessions.

    However, most patients can expect a significant change to pain 4-5 weeks after completing the treatment.

    At Oakwood MBST we hope to expect a measurable difference in your function and quality of life 3 months after completing your MBST course.

  • The MBST machine can continue to work and target the origin of the problem for several years after you have finished the course.

    In severe cases, we may recommend a few top-up sessions after one year of completing the treatment.

  • Conditions such as Arthritis are degenerative conditions which deteriorate through time. MBST treatment can make your symptoms improve but like a small puncture in a tyre, for example, you may have to pump it up again in future. Again, this is dependent on the individual and the severity of your condition.

About MBST

  • MBST therapy is a technological innovation used to counteract the negative effects of degenerative disorders of the musculoskeletal system such as arthritis.

    The principal of MBST technology is based on the use of nuclear resonance, electromagnetic fields, originally used for MRI diagnosis. Unlike MRI, MBST does not use magnetic resonance to generate images, but rather to biophysically stimulate the regenerative processes of specific cells or tissues at a molecular level.

    Once the cells of the affected area or injury have been sufficiently stimulated from MBST therapy, the cells will continue to grow and develop by themselves.

  • Chronobiologists identified the significance of the Circadian Rhythm on health.

    The body’s circadian rhythm is several important biological processes, including cell regeneration. Which are enhanced considerably when the rhythm runs smoothly. (This research won the Nobel prize for medicine in 2017)

    Throughout life, external factors can influence and destabilise the circadian rhythm which can, in turn, diminish our body’s ability to heal itself with cell regeneration.

    However, MBST technology has demonstrated an active influence on the inner clockwork of cells. The cells successfully re-programme within the body to find the natural rhythm of the younger self. In any specific joint or limb, it can create an environment conducive to natural healing.

    In this way, MBST is the only treatment that has been shown to directly stimulate the body’s regenerative processes at molecular level.

  • MBST was established in Germany and has been in operation for over 20 years.  The treatment offers a comfortable, uncomplicated, and sustainable therapy.  In several cases, MBST has eliminated the need for surgery. It is user-friendly and easy to implement and is effective on patients of all ages.

    From the initial diagnosis through to aftercare, every patient is fully supported throughout the entire process by healthcare professionals and trained technicians.

    MBST is completely stress-free, during therapy, there is little to do but lay back and let MBST do the work for you. Most patients bring a book, listen to music, or just take a nap during the hour of comfortable therapy.
