Magnetic fields have some advantages over electric fields, and can be used for treating both soft and hard tissues simultaneously. Each tissue responds to a different frequency or pulsation of the wave form used.
In the 1960’s research began medical to take magnetic fields and therapy seriously there has been renewed interest the use of electric and magnetic fields to facilitate healing in bone (hard tissues).
Attention has turned to injuries of soft tissues, such as nerve, muscle, and tendons, and the pain from such injuries. Magnetic fields have some advantages over electric fields, and can be used for treating both soft and hard tissues simultaneously. Each tissue responds to a different frequency or pulsation of the wave form used. Effects of pulsed magnetic fields for injury rehabilitation are:
- Enhancement of capillary formation
- Decreased necrosis
- Reduced swelling
- Diminished pain
- Faster and functional recovery
- Reduction and depth, area, and pain in skin and wounds
- Reduced muscle loss after ligament surgery
- Increased tensile strength of ligaments
- Accelerations of nerve regeneration and functional recovery
The data listed above is referenced in the book, Energy Medicine, the Scientific Basis by James Oschman.
Quote from user: “Used to address non-vascular and low-vascular tissue, the Pulsing Magnetic Head addresses discomfort and issues with ligaments, tendons, fascia and bone. The client will feel a loosening or ebbing of discomfort in those areas, especially when paired with visible light therapy from the Eclipse or Crystal LymphWaves. Often, orthopedic issues can cause structural restriction, which makes this modality a very useful tool to go after stiffness, discomfort, and adhesive scar tissue from injuries or surgeries as well as improving lymphatic flow around the affected area to speed healing.”
