MagnetoTherapy - An Introduction


Magnetotherapy - is a method of healing by alternating low-frequency and constant magnet field. Treatment by the magnet field is a widespread and rather effective aid for many health problems. Only during the last 30 years, though, the therapeutically effective magnetic fields have been identified through clinical controlled studies.

They are low frequency and low intensity pulsed magnetic fields that are indicated with the ELF (Extremely Low Frequency) acronym. Such low frequencies (not greater than 100 Hz) and low intensities (not greater than 100G) are the base today of Magnetotherapy; a traditional, non-invasive treatment which is particularly indicated to stimulate fractures healing and to slow down the decrease of bone density caused by osteoporosis.

Pulsed Electro Magnetic  Fields influence cell behavior by inducing electrical changes around and within the cell. Improved blood supply increases the oxygen pressure, activating and regenerating cells. Improved calcium transport increases absorption of calcium in bones and improves the quality of cartilage in joints, decreasing pain dramatically. Acute and even chronic pain -also caused by osteoporosis- may disappear completely.

As you probably know a magnet has 2 fields- south and north. By means of a definite magnet application it is possible to strengthen or weaken the passage of the energy that leads to improvement of the energy state of an organism. The only important condition is a correct application of magnets on meridians or on zones of influence.

There are three established physical mechanisms through which pulsed magnetic fields interact with living matter.

  • Magnetic induction
  • Magnetomechanical effects
  • Electronic interactions

Summarizing the data on physiological and pathophysiological response to magnetic field exposures we find that these effects are not specific. We can postulate that magnetic field exhibits the following activities:

  • vasodilatation
  • analgesic action
  • anti-inflammatory action
  • spasmolytical activity
  • healing acceleration
  • anti-oedematous activity
