The properties of the magnet were known to the ancient Egyptians and the ancient Romans who benefited from their beneficial effect for the purpose of beautification and treatment. Today, magnets within all their right, being scientifically proven, occupy an important place when it comes to physical therapy.
Magnetotherapy is an officially recognized, non-invasive, painless method that employs a low-frequency magnetic field for the purpose of treatment. The electromagnetic field works at the level of the cell, more precisely on its physical, chemical and biological processes, and in this way leads to an improvement in the state of the organism.
Thanks to the improvement of circulation, metabolism and tissue oxygenation, magnetotherapy successfully works on the reduction of pain, swelling, inflammatory processes, problems with osteoporosis, bone fractures.
We recommend the magnetotherapy in the following cases:
- Injuries, sprains, stretched joints and muscles
- Fractures and bruises
- Inflammatory processes
- Rheumatism and arthritis
- Improvement of circulation
We do not recommend magnetotherapy in the following cases:
- People with built-in pacemaker
- During pregnancy
- People with malignant conditions
Before the magnetotherapy is applied to the patient, it is necessary to accurately determine the frequency of the magnetic field as well as the duration of the therapy.
The magnetotherapy apparatus consists of beds and solenoids for magnetotherapy. The solenoid slides along the bed, and is positioned above the place that is being treated or the whole body if needed. During magnetotherapy, circulation, oxygenation and tissue regeneration are stimulated. It is especially proven that magnetotherapy affects the accelerated formation of bone cells and is therefore recommended in case of osteoporosis and sports injuries.
The number of treatments and duration of magnetotherapy depends on the severity of the patient’s problem.
