ABSTRACT:
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a common disorder of the musculoskeletal system and a major burden on healthcare systems worldwide. Different modalities have been developed for the treatment and management of OA. In recent years, electromagnetic fields (EMFs) have shown positive therapeutic effects in this disorder. Several studies have investigated the effectiveness of different EMFs for the treatment of OA with controversial but promising outcomes. This study aims to comprehensively review the recent advances in applications of EMFs for the treatment of OA as alternative or adjunctive treatment. In addition, the mechanisms of action of EMFs in exerting therapeutic outcomes as well as clinical perspectives are discussed.
