Magnetotherapyis one of the techniques of tissue improvement used in medical rehabilitation. It is used in many fields of medicine, although the mechanism of the impact of the magnetic field on the human body has not been fully understood yet.

The indications for treatments using the magnetic field are:

  • osteoporosis
  • rheumatism

  • female diseases
  • skin diseases

How does magnetic therapy work?

The magnetic field permeates the body and reaches every cell, affecting the structures of cell membranes, making it easier for nutrients and oxygen to enter their interior. As a result, the field accelerates the development of connective tissue and the formation of bone scarring, increases the absorption of oxygen by tissues, has anti-inflammatory and anti-swelling properties and relieves pain.

What does the magnetotherapy treatment look like?

You do not need to prepare yourself for magnetotherapy, but remove all metal objects - remove jewelry, a belt with a metal buckle, remove the dentures and turn off the mobile phone. The procedure can be performed through clothing and even through a plaster cast. The diseased part of the body is placed in a special hoop - the coil (hoops have different diameters). Usually the patient is sitting or lying down. The treatment includes 10 treatments, 10-30 minutes each. The doses and the intensity of the magnetic field depend on the patient's condition - the more serious the he alth, the lower the doses. The treatments are ordered by a medical rehabilitation doctor.
