For years many have promoted magnet therapy for pain. Some swear by it and others think its snake oil. It’s easy and painless and with minimal risk.
A recent study proved that repetitive peripheral magnetic stimulation as pain management solution in musculoskeletal and neurologic disorders can be effective. https://www.ijphy.org/index.php/journal/article/view/335/323
The majority of participants described a decrease (87.33%) in pain and improvement (41.33%) in ability to perform activities of daily living after the course of treatment. A three-month follow up showed persisting improvement (to 42.04% (vs. before treatment condition)) in activities of daily living performing abilities.
Magnetic energy is measured in tesla (T).
Most magnetic pain therapies use the equivalent of a refrigerator magnet that is worn over a painful area. This is measured in millitelsa. (0.005 T) By comparison an MRI uses magnets with 1.5-3 teslas.
Why this study showed such a vast improvement is the magnetic energy used was 2.5 tesla, the same energy used in an MRI. This high magnetic energy was focused over the painful area.
Currently this exact therapy is not offered in the United States, but hopefully it will be here soon. We, at Neuro Pain, have a machine that does this exact thing. It supplies 2.5 tesla in a highly focused manner. We have proven pain relief in patients that have used it for this reason.
This is useful for musculoskeltal pain.
Easy, painless and minimal to no risk. 30 minutes is all it takes and there is no downtime.
