Magnet therapy is one of the more commonly used physical therapy methods. It involves the use of the therapeutic properties of magnetic fields, which penetrate deep into the affected tissues and mobilize them to regenerate.
The device used to perform magnetotherapy is a magnetronik. Magnetic field treatments help reduce pain and inflammation, reduce swelling, and accelerate healing.
Magnetic field treatment, due to its lack of thermal action, has many applications. Due to the lack of temperature rise during the treatment, it also has use during periods of exacerbation of disease processes.
Among the main indications for therapy are:
- degenerative diseases,
- Chronic inflammatory processes in soft tissues, joints, bones, nerves,
- Bronchitis, asthma, sinusitis,
- Crohn's disease,
- Stomach ulcers in the chronic phase,
- prostate growth,
- Sudeck's atrophy and very many others.
An additional advantage of using a magnetic field is that there is no need to do any preparation for the procedure.
The energy emitted during magnetic field therapy penetrates barriers such as clothing, bandages, and the presence of metal implants is not a problem (stents are also not a contraindication to the treatment). Given the indications and proper selection of pulses, the magnetic field is not harmful. However, there are some limitations to its use.
