Magnetotherapy The application of low-frequency electromagnetic field in treatment. Electromagnetic field acts on cellular level (upon its physical features, chemical and biological processes in a cell) which gives rise to numerous therapeutic effects within the whole body:

  • antiphlogistic (anti-inflammatory)- analgesic (reduced pain sensation)
  • anti-edematous effect (reduced swelling)
  • improved tissue oxygenation
  • improved metabolism
  • improved blood and lymph flow
  • decreased blood viscosity and coagulability (affects endothelium of blood vessels)
  • stimulated regeneration of tissue
  • stimulated osteogenesis - regeneration of bone tissue
  • decreased spastic muscle tone
  • stimulated immunology system (improved body defense forces)

EMP advantages:

  • accelerated bone healing after fractures - callus stimulation
  • possible application during plaster immobilization
  • possible application in the presence of metal in the tissue
  • powerful anti-edematous effect (reduced swelling) and analgesic effect (decreased sensation of pain)
  • improved circulations and certain blood properties (decreased platelet aggregation)

Indications for application of EMP are as follows:

  • pain in the cervical, thoracic and lumbar part of the spine
  • slowly healing bone fractures
  • traumas of joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles
  • algodystrophic syndrome - Sudeck’s disease
  • osteoporosis
  • disorders of peripheral circulation
  • trophic lesions due to disorders of arterial and venous circulation (varicose ulcers - Ulcus cruris)
