Today many people use magnet therapy for pain management. Health professionals such as physiotherapists, acupuncturists, chiropractors, nutritionists, and sports performance trainers, might be surprised with the latest advancements in magnetic therapy.
Effective magnetic field therapy works in the cell and supports the functioning of inner regulation mechanisms while enhancing the self-healing capacity.
The action of magnetic field therapy may be summarized according to scientists in three main effects:
- Increased blood circulation – Thermographic measuring charts show the increase of circulation under a magnetic field. This leads to better nutrition and rejuvenation of cells.
- Improved oxygen supply – The PEMF ensures increased oxygen extraction (deoxygenation) and enriches the tissue with oxygen.
- Enhanced Metabolism – PEMF enhances both anabolism and catabolism.
PEMF influences the ion concentration on both sides of the cell membrane. They exert a positive effect on cellular metabolism and thus on the functioning of the complete system. They do that within a defined region of frequency and amplitude.
Overall, it can be stated that magnetic field therapy supports metabolism and increases blood circulation throughout the whole body. It intensifies the oxygen supply in the cells and speeds the transportation of metabolic waste products.
Hence, 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.
