Some patients who experience bone injuries and spinal fusion surgery have difficulty healing. In many of these cases, there are certain health factors that may have impaired the natural healing process of the bones. To help overcome healing challenges, doctors commonly prescribe a treatment called bone growth therapy, otherwise known as bone growth stimulation.
Orthofix Bone Growth Therapy devices provide a safe, noninvasive treatment that helps promote healing in fractured bones and spinal fusions that have not healed or have difficulty healing. The devices stimulate the bone’s natural healing process by sending low-level pulses of electromagnetic energy to the injury or fusion site.
Orthofix Bone Growth Therapy devices have been prescribed since the late 1980s. Over this time, doctors have prescribed more than 800,000 Orthofix Bone Growth Therapy devices to help patients heal.

Electrical currents have been used to heal bones since the mid-1800s. However, it wasn’t until the 1950s scientists made the important discovery that when human bone is bent or broken, it generates an electrical field. This low-level electrical field activates the body's own repair mechanism which, in turn, promotes bone healing.1-3 In 1986, the PhysioStim™ device entered the bone growth therapy market and was shortly followed by the SpinalStim™ and CervicalStim™ devices.
