WHAT IS MAGNETOTHERAPY?
Magnetotherapy is part of physiotherapy treatments and uses electromagnetic energy.
It is a safe and non-invasive, very effective treatment that does not involve the use of medication.
WHAT IS IT FOR?
Very useful when it is necessary to stimulate tissue regeneration, e.g.: after surgery or after traumatic events.
Also interesting for treating chronic diseases, eg.: osteoporosis, arthrosis …
Magnetotherapy repolarises the cell membranes, thus achieving faster regeneration of damaged cells.
The generated magnetic fields are able to interact with the cells and result in the recovery of physiological conditions.
IMPROVEMENT OF BONE REGENERATION
FIGHTS CARTILAGE DEGENERATION
THERAPEUTIC and PREVENTIVE TREATMENTS
RELAXING EFFECT OF MUSCULATURE, muscle contractures
IMPROVEMENT OF MICROCIRCULATION
BIOSTIMULATING EFFECT ON THE CELL, restores order where a magnetic disorder has arisen. It gives energy to the cells.
Do not use for patients with pacemakers, severe heart patients, epileptics, people with nervous disorders (schizophrenia, anxiety and depression syndrome..)
Do not use on pregnant women, people with bleeding in progress.
Always read the user manual and consult your doctor before treatment.
Therapies not more than 3 times a day.
The last decades have seen an extraordinary development of electrotherapy, especially in the field of the locomotor apparatus. Unfortunately, at the same time, many of the advantages of this method have not been sufficiently recognised, studied and disseminated.
Magnetotherapy has been in use in clinical practice for many years, but its systematic use and proper placement in physical therapy are relatively recent. There is still considerable confusion about the different devices available on the market, as they are heterogeneous in design and operating principles. All this makes it difficult to assess the clinical results in relation to the type of equipment used and the different techniques of application.
A device for magnetotherapy is defined as a device that generates a predominantly magnetic field, well characterized in intensity, field trend, waveform, with absolute reproducibility of therapies tested with the same type of equipment.
MAGNETIC FIELD INTENSITY
The majority of clinical and experimental experiences with pulsating magnetic fields have been carried out with intensities between 5 and 100 GAUSS (note that the terrestrial magnetic field in which we live is of the order of 0.5-1 Gauss)
The magnetic fields used for therapeutic purposes can be single wave, double wave or sinusoidal. The most tried and tested ones are still in sine wave, although interesting results in vitro begin to emerge from the use of double wave magnetic fields. In conclusion, wanting to consider the best tested and documented parameters, the best conditions for the clinical use of magnetotherapy are related – in our opinion – to the use of a flat solenoid equipment, operating with an average frequency of 50 Hz, delivering a pulsing magnetic field of variable intensity and between 1 and 100 GAUSS.
