The results of application of Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field (PEMF) therapy on 48 Osteo-Arthritis (OA) patients are described in the paper. The patients underwent various treatment-modalities prior to this therapy without any steady improvement. Patients showed considerable improvement at the end of the PEMF therapy with minimum deteriorations at five-year follow-up. Differential progress characteristics of improvements in relation to big and small joints are also presented. These are analysed in the light of OA- pathology, to focus on the possible effects of PEMF on the physiological processes.
