Hello. I’m a new member of this forum and this is my first post! I’m also a new owner of the Micro-Pulse A9a and have a few questions about using it to address my hip issues.
I’ll spare you the details but my orthopedic doctor has just told me that he thinks I have a stress fracture or its precursor in my left hip based on my description of the pain in my left groin area. (Nothing showed up on the x-rays or MRI.) I never have pain when I’m off my feet, only when walking, especially after sitting for a while. Although I’m not a runner, his diagnosis makes sense due to my age (79) and a recent BMD test that indicated osteopenia in my hips.
I’ve read that I shouldn’t put much weight on that leg for at least 4-6 weeks to give it a chance to heal so have started doing that. I know that PEMF is good for healing bone and am interested in using the A9a to speed that process along, if possible. I’ve also seen that @Bob recommends using the model C5 with deep field coils to address hip arthritis pain. Does that recommendation also apply to hip stress fractures that seem to be more localized to the groin area? If the A9a could provide some bone healing benefit, should I stack the coils or place them side-by-side?
Thanks for your help. All comments welcome.
