Magnetic therapy is used to alleviate pain and has many health benefits. It has been studied as adjunct therapy for treating symptoms of multi sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis, tissue and bone injury, pain syndromes and many more conditions. These benefits might naturally occur due to the anti-inflammatory effects that magnetic therapy provides.
How does magnetic therapy work?
Magnetic therapy is deemed effective when it helps to resolve an issue. The effectiveness of magnetic therapy depends on the individual condition, magnet polarity design, strength of magnetic field, application method and magnetic field gradients.
Magnetic fields are a vector quantity, which has both quantity and directional values.
Different magnetic materials have different properties and the size of a magnet also determines the strength and depth of penetration. Multipolar magnets are much more complex than the common bipolar type, they generate magnetic field gradients, which have very different effects on moving charged particles and as it turns out on nerves as well.
What are the benefits of magnetic therapy?
Magnetic therapy is a method of treating some diseases by applying artificial magnetic fields to the meridians, acupoints and lesions of the human body. The static magnets will be used to create a therapeutic magnetic field to help people relieve pain and restore various problems.
Nowadays, more and more people start to use magnetic therapy to treat pain, including the health professionals, such as physical therapists, acupuncturists and massage therapists.
Magnetic field can increase the pain threshold of experimental animals, and the analgesic effect is obvious, and the effect is relatively rapid. Magnetic therapy has good analgesic effects on neuropathic pain, traumatic pain, spastic pain, etc., and can improve the pain threshold and pain tolerance threshold. Research also suggests that the magnitude of magnetic field analgesia is related to magnetic field strength, the stronger the magnetic field strength, the more obvious the analgesic effect.
Experiments have confirmed that under the action of a certain amount of magnetic field, the inhibitory process of the cerebral cortex is strengthened and muscle tone is reduced. It has the effects of improving sleep quality, increasing sleep time, alleviating muscle spasm, and reducing muscle tone. It can be used to treat neurasthenia and insomnia.
Magnetic therapy can improve cellular immune function and enhance the phagocytic function of white blood cells; by improving local blood circulation, it can promote the absorption and dissipation of inflammatory exudates, and accelerate the removal of inflammatory chemical mediators; reduce capillary permeability and promote the infiltration of inflammatory substances The output is reduced, and the anti-inflammatory effect is finally achieved. Effective for acute inflammation caused by physicochemical factors and biological factors.
The swelling effect is one of the important functions of magnetic therapy and has been recognized. It can significantly reduce local or limb swelling, and has a good effect on limb edema and neurovascular edema caused by acute sprain, traumatic hematoma and phlebitis. The swelling effect of the magnetic field increases with time, so if the treatment time is appropriately increased, a better treatment effect can be obtained.
*Antihypertensive and lipid-lowering effects
Magnetic therapy not only relieves the symptoms of hypertensive patients, but also lowers blood pressure. The magnetic field acts on the body's acupoints to produce the effect of regulating the central and autonomic nerves, reducing their excitability, enhancing inhibition, improving vasomotor function, dilating peripheral micro vessels, reducing peripheral vascular resistance, and reducing blood pressure, especially for early hypertension. obvious.
Animal experiments show that the magnetic field has the effect of reducing blood lipids. Magnetic therapy was applied to blood pressure patients with increased blood lipids, and their blood lipids decreased to varying degrees. The magnetic field acts on the body, causing changes in the structure of cholesterol, making it difficult for cholesterol to deposit on the walls of blood vessels. It also depends on the adjustment of the nervous system and the effects of certain enzymes, which affect the metabolism of blood lipids and reduce the blood lipids of patients.
Magnetic therapy can use high-tech magnetic materials to be distributed in the fabric in a checkerboard manner, acting on the meridians, acupuncture points and diseased parts of the human body, and adjusting the depth of the human tissue through the magnetic field to achieve the auxiliary effect of preventing diseases.
Magnetic therapy can relieve pain at the nerve level. Its molecular action can reduce inflammation, thereby improving the ability to restore vitality.
Magnetic therapy research shows that as long as you use the correct magnetic therapy equipment and use the correct method or treatment plan, magnetic therapy is the most effective. By reading the published clinical trials, it is clear that the multi-pole therapeutic magnet is the most effective, and it is recommended to spend some time understanding and visualizing the field of influence of the therapeutic magnet that you decide to use. The therapeutic magnet used should have a sufficiently steep magnetic field gradient to allow the magnetic field to reach the damaged area, thereby enclosing the target tissue.
