magnet therapy for back pain, depression, arthritis,
What is Magnetotherapy?
is a gentle and natural treatment for the human body. The action of a pulsative magnetic field (PMF) favourably affects tissues of the body. It is known that PMF works at the cellular level. PMF causes activation of enzymatic processes, metabolic transfers and cellular membrane functions. The cellular respiration is enhanced in the exposed area. PMF produces positive changes in the immunological condition of the patient, vasodilatation of the arterial capillaries and decreases blood coagulation.
This treatment may lead to the suppression or complete elimination of some health problems. This safe, non-invasive therapy can be successfully applied for treatment of different diseases, both acute and chronic and often provides fast removal of pain and edemas, which arise from physical trauma.
PMF improves cerebral blood circulation, increases inflow of oxygen in the cerebral cells, increases flexibility of blood vessels, dissolves cholesterol and triglycerides. It is often applied to treat insomnia, migraines, Asthma, artherosclerosis, poor memory, vertigo, after cerebral thrombosis and trauma of the head. Magnets have been proved to be helpful in the treatment of a number of conditions including arthritis, back pain, pain in joints, sports injuries, poor circulation, lack of energy and stamina, depression, overweight etc.
The therapy consists of exposing areas of the body to a magnetic field to accelerate the recovery of pain, inflammation, de-calcification or other ailments of the locomotive system.
"Modern" Magnetotherapy means the Low-frequency
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy, shortly also EMF or frequently PMF therapy. Magnet therapy is a safe physiatric method in treatment of many diseases. Unfortunately, many people know about the use of permanent magnets only, i.e. static magnetic field. There is a significiant difference in the way static and pulsed magnetic fields are used. Long-range experience and many clinical studies confirm, PMF gives better results. Pulsed magnetotherapy is a very popular physiatric method and has become the standard part of therapeutical procedures in spas, rehabilitation centers, etc.
How the Magnetotherapy works:
There are three established physical mechanisms through which
pulsed magnetic fields interact with living matter:
1) Magnetic induction
2) Magnetomechanical effects
3) Electronic interactions
Magnetic field exhibits the following activities:
2) analgesic action
3) anti-inflammatory action
4) spasmolytical activity
5) healing acceleration
6) anti-oedematous activity
7) improve metabolism, boost produce of enzymes
Magnet therapy helps to alleviate symptoms of epilepsy, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, migraine, severe PMS, ADD / ADHD, and depression. Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy apparently reduces errant brain wave activity, revives (decalcifies) the pineal gland thereby beneficially affects melatonin synthesis, as well as brings benefits to other endocrine system functions such as enhancing the release or reception of dopamine.
Enhances blood's ability to carry oxygen.
Improves blood microcirculation.
Enhances neurological processes.
Improves psychological well-being.
Other medical indications:
Rehabilitation - osteoarthritis of the load bearing joints,
spondylitis, osteochondritis, "tennis elbows",
"frozen shoulders", conditions after distortions,
algoneurodystrophic (Sudeck) syndrome, aseptic necroses (e.g.
m.Perthes, m.Osgood-Schlatter), ankylosing spondylitis.
Paediatrics - myopathiae, rheumatoid arthritis, spinal
amyotrophy, palsies after delivery, sinusitis. Neurology -
pareses of peripheral nerves, postherpetic pains. Dermatology -
skin ulcerations of arterial and/or venous origin. Urology -
chronic prostatitis, sexual dysfuntions and dysuric complaints.
Counter-indications for magnetotherapy. Absolute
- pregnancy, pacemaker, hyperthyreoidosis, suprarenal gland
dysfunction, myasthenia gravis, conditions connected with
bleeding (mainly bleeding into the GIT), hypothalamic and
hypophyseal dysfunctions, active tuberculosis, acute viral
diseases, malignancies (even in anamnesis), psychoses.
Relative - neurological diseases with seizures (with regard to
applicator's localization), severe mycotic diseases, severe
artherosclerosis. A sudden blood pressure decrease may occur, i.e.
vertigo, swoon, etc. This reaction usually disappears within 30
minutes of the exposure and after 5 exposures adaptation sets in.
