Reduce Pain, Preserve Function, and Maintain Quality of Life: New Perspectives for Radiation Therapy
Musculoskeletal disorders affect a wide percentage of the population, causing significant pain and reducing functionality both in professional and leisure activities. Possible treatments for these debilitating conditions can be a significant and ongoing burden to the afflicted persons and overall to the national health systems. Thus, the implementation of low-dose radiation therapy can be very effective in reducing pain symptoms and improving joint function, while providing a cost-effective treatment option.
