High frequency magnetotherapy, also known as high frequency electromagnetotherapy or PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic fields) is based on emitting radio waves with a frequency between 18 and 900 MHz in short pulses, and the frequency can be regulated.
High frequency and low intensity (measured in milliwatts) is particularly indicated in pain therapy, healing, oedemas and generally for treating disorders of the soft tissues.
It can also be used for calcification retard, but requires more treatments than low frequency magnetotherapy.
TENS acts on the pain with a prevailing action on the nervous system and, therefore, on the painful symptom.
High frequency magnetotherapy not only acts on the nerve ends, but acts more effectively on the cellular structure, helping to restore the normal physiological conditions.
Studies and clinical experience have confirmed electromagnetic wave therapy is totally harmless and with no undesirable side-effects (the contraindications, or rather use under strict medical supervision, are limited to wearers of pacemakers, pregnant women, patients with serious cardiac/neurological problems or patients with extensive tumours).
For these reasons, PEMF has been used in a wide range of disorders with very satisfactory results, both in hospitals and outpatients surgeries.
Magnetic therapy is one of a number of therapies used by physiotherapists to treat a range of health conditions. Magnetic therapy encompasses treatments using pulsed magnetic fields, and those using high and low frequency magnets. It can be used to treat many illnesses and has very few side effects.
What is Magnetic therapy? It is the application of magnetic fields, which can be static or variable. Using magnets in a continuous manner, or by altering their frequency we can use their therapeutic effects to treat medical complaints which react positively to this technique. Nowadays, these pulsed magnetic fields are produced by devices. The device contains bobbins which enclose a nucleus, and are controlled by microprocessors enabling us to regulate the power and frequency according to the treatment.
Tesla and Gauss are the standard units used to measure magnetic strength. A Tesla is equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one Newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one metre per second. Tesla is a big unit of measurement so it is more common to use the Gauss unit, 1 Tesla being 10,000 Gauss.
Magnetic therapy uses the therapeutic power of static or variable frequency magnetic fields. The devices available on the market today allow us to regulate the magnet frequency in order to efficiently treat all kinds of health complaints.
The strength of the magnetic field at the Earth’s surface ranges between 0.3 and 0.5 Gauss. Once the human body is distanced from the Earth’s magnetic field it begins to experience the effects of decalcification. This effect has been observed in trips into Space, but by subjecting the body to magnetic fields stronger than the Earth’s, we achieve a regenerative effect. Magnetic therapy is used in the treatment of loss of bone density and other medical complaints. A Magnetic therapy device improves atrophic conditions, and consequently aids the recovery process.
Magnetic therapy comes under the umbrella of therapies used in physiotherapy, and more specifically Electrotherapy. It is important to highlight that when a predominantly electrical effect exists, we aim to cause sensory and motor stimulation which essentially brings about chemical changes in the body tissue. On other occasions it will be the magnetic component that is predominant. Once a magnetic effect is applied in regulated frequency pulses to the body (which is made up of ionized chemical components) magnetic strength acts on these ions, molecules and even on the water dipole redirecting them and generating movement. The movement of electric charges speeds up metabolism precisely in the tissues where we apply magnet therapy.
The application of magnetic fields on the human body has diverse and powerful effects:
1.Trophic stimulation of calcium metabolism in bone tissue. Both the generation of internal currents in the bone and the piezoelectric effect help stimulate osteoblasts and speed up bone tissue recovery in cases of osteoporosis and bone fractures.
2.The relaxing effect of magnetic fields is due to the balancing action of the sympathetic-parasympathetic system. Magnetic therapy provides release from spasms, allowing the smooth and striated muscle to relax, aiding blood flow to the muscle around arteries and blood vessels which naturally leads to better tissue nutrition and a reduction in localized inflammation.
3.It has a moderate but efficient analgesic effect on the nerve endings. The anti-inflammatory and relaxing effect helps raise the threshold of pain.
4.Magnetic therapy is one of a number of therapies used in physiotherapy to treat a range of medical complaints. It encompasses therapies which use high and low frequency magnetic fields for therapeutic healing.
By subjecting parts of the body to magnetic fields, we trigger an ionic and molecular reaction which encourages chemical processes in the body to accelerate. Simple as it sounds, the effects happen on range of scales, from the cell to the organism.
Magnetic fields penetrate beyond the skin’s surface, reaching the bone. The piezoelectric effect and the creation of micro currents in the body tissues appear to be responsible for stimulating osteoblasts and therefore regenerating bone tissue.
1.The rehabilitative effect of magnetic therapy on bone fractures is widely recognized today. Its use is recommended for a number of reasons:
2.There are minimal side effects related to the use of magnetic therapy.
3.It is one of the few electrotherapy techniques capable of reaching the necessary depth to be effective
High and low frequency devices are affordable and user friendly. They are powerful and light weight, and provide the ideal solution to devices for home use.
4.After 15-20 sessions we can objectively see the results of a bone density scan. However, in many cases after fewer sessions the perception of pain and inflammation is notably less.
