Pulsed magnetic therapy using a static magnetic field is used above all for its anti inflammatory effects and for speeding up trophism. By using magnet therapy, and taking into consideration magnetic field polarity, the south pole creates a positive electric effect whilst the north produces a negative electric effect which induces bone density regeneration.
By regulating the frequency on magnetic therapy devices we can increase ion activity in an affected area, improve metabolic processes and shorten rehabilitation time. The most common use of magnetic therapy is in the treatment of osteoporosis, because it acts in two ways by slowing bone density loss and at the same time the piezoelectric effect induced activates bone regeneration. Amongst the most common health problems which benefit from magnetic therapy are bone fractures, tendinitis, and rheumatic pain. But magnet therapy can treat a number of other health conditions;
● Knee, hip and lumbar arthritis
● Sudeck’s atrophy
● Tendinitis, tendinosis
● Osteoporosis and other conditions where bone regeneration is lengthy.
● Delayed healing
● Bronchial asthma
● Improving localized muscle atrophy, Diabetic Foot
● Carpel Tunnel Syndrome
● Lumbago, Dorsalgia
MAGNETIC THERAPY, SIDE EFFECTS
Always read the Magnetic Therapy device instruction manual carefully, and pay special attention to the following warnings:
● Not to be used in patients with pacemakers fitted.
● Not to be used during pregnancy.
● Do not use in the case of cancerous tumours.
● Do not apply over the heart.
