What is radiotherapy treatment and how does it work?

Low-dose radiotherapy (also known as external beam radiation therapy) uses very small and carefully controlled doses of radiation to help with different health issues such as osteoarthritis and joint pain. It works as an anti-inflammatory and pain relieving treatment. 

It’s different from the stronger radiotherapy used for cancer because it uses much less radiation and is very unlikely to cause side-effects.
