A BROTHER and sister have set up a new venture to continue the family line promoting a new innovation in physiotherapy, MBST.

Liz and Charles Clare have opened up a clinic, Cell Regeneration, based in Tinwell, near Stamford, which has taken over the MBST magnetic resonance therapy practice from their mother Ann Clare.

Ann, a local physiotherapist of more than 30 years, is still the assessor for the clinic and always assesses patients before they begin treatment.

Charles, a sports development graduate, was keen to specialise in sports injury-related complaints following his university days, and for ex-media professional Liz, the new business was an ideal opportunity to do something different in a family setting.

The pair both undertook intensive training at MedTec, in Germany, from whom they rent the MBST machines, prior to opening the business in November 2011. Four of the machines are for medical use and one for cosmetic use.

Their self-financed enterprise is the first dedicated MBST centre in the UK and has already started to attract patients from across the globe.

MBST devices and procedures are used for the management of arthritic conditions; sports injuries of the back, knee, foot, elbow and ankle joints; degeneration of intervertebral discs; osteoporosis and other complaints.

The treatment is non-invasive and pain free.

The therapy has been proven to repair and regenerate cartilage, increase bone density as well as a host of other treatments.

MBST is based on the same principles of MRI, with the magnetic fields and magnetic resonance frequency much lower than in MRI.

Liz said: “We have a dedicated treatment centre. The treatment is controlled by chip-card technology which gives the correct resonance to the specific area requiring physiotherapy treatment.”

Cell Regeneration can provide strong supporting testimonials from various clients on the degree of success of the treatments, including one client who had treatment for osteoporosis and already his bone density has increased by 10 per cent.

The clinic currently has people coming from as far afield as Australia to be treated.

So far, it has built up a fair clientele just from word-of-mouth recommendation.
