Since ancient times, the treatment of the body with the help of magnetic fields was extremely popular. Who is magnetic in the home and in the hospital back in fashion
Increasingly popular in recent timesAcquires magnetotherapy is a technique of influencing human magnetic fields with the purpose of prevention and treatment of a wide range of diseases, as well as maintaining the body in tone.
Applicators and devices used in these procedures are able to treat diseases of the whole body - from damage to the locomotor system to ailments of the gastrointestinal tract and infertility.
Electromagnetic fields and radiation in pure form are in some cases harmful and undesirable.
At the same time, with proper application,Magnetotherapy as a special healing technology is useful and gives amazing results! What is the essence of the treatment and are there any special indications and contraindications for magnetotherapy?
Despite the fact that the title is presentOnly one component (magnetic), in the process, the electrical component (EMF) is also involved. The division is conditional, since both parts are closely interrelated.
Since it is about the magnet and its healingProperties of mankind learned much earlier, magnetotherapy was named precisely from this component. It should be recognized that the rationale for such treatment in scientific circles has taken many years. This is due to the fact that the fields have no taste, no smell, no color.
Hence a certain skepticism, which involuntarilyArose among the learned men about the influence of a magnet on a living organism. However, the result was invariably present, so at some point it became impossible to deny the properties of the technique. Today, both medical magnetology in medical hospitals and magnetotherapy at home are popular.
The main characteristic of technology is induction. A magnetic field with a slight induction causes a reaction of training the body. Optimal for a person consider induction in the range of 0.02-0.05 T (with a constant magnetic field and a long exposure to it).
In short-term sessions, these limitsGrow in a constant and alternating field. For the last one more parameter - frequency is important. In treatment there are two fundamentally different approaches - high-frequency inductothermy and low-frequency magnetotherapy.
Inductothermy is used primarily for treatment, is carried out in short courses, requires very complicated equipment and has a number of significant contraindications.
The fact is that at a high frequency of EPMIs significantly absorbed by human tissues and causes an increase in temperature. Unlike the previous method, low-frequency magnetotherapy is safe (if there are no contraindications) and more physiological. It is used not only for treatment, but also for prevention.
Its feature is that for the procedure there is no need for external control of a specialist. Magnetotherapy at home is becoming increasingly popular.
It fits the best for the elderly, forWhose treatment at home is usually easier, as well as for young hearts and allergies. Magnetotherapy in gynecology is also in demand, especially in those cases where there are contraindications to other physiotherapy methods.
Indications and contraindications for the procedure
Indications and contraindications for magnetotherapy should be studied before starting treatment. Unfortunately, there are a lot of contraindications.
Below are the main:
- Inflammatory diseases in exacerbation;
- Pronounced hypotension;
- Severe course of ischemic heart disease;
- Bleeding and tendency to them;
- Systemic blood diseases;
- Purulent processes before surgery;
- Early period after a heart attack;
- Presence of an implanted pacemaker;
- Acute period of dysfunction of cerebral circulation;
- Respiratory diseases;
- Goiter (thyrotoxicosis);
- Pregnancy and lactation;
- State of intoxication.
As you can see, the list is quite impressive.
It is important to read the instructions carefullyOr other apparatus by which the procedure is performed, since each of them may have its own characteristics and additional contraindications. If, for the use of therapy, it burns "green light", You can safely use the therapeutic properties of EMF.
The healing effect of magnetic fields on the body can be:
- General - affects the tone, general condition, well-being;
- Local - treats the affected organ or tissue site;
- Reflex - involves biologically active points of acupuncture;
- Mediated - through, for example, the receipt of specific curative magnetized water in the body.
Low-frequency magnetotherapy is often used to relieve pain.
It is believed that it acts not on material structures, but primarily on the human biofield. Stimulation is due to the biological effect of resonance.
As a result, muscle relaxes,Improves circulation and circulation of lymph in microvessels. Also, the excretion of interstitial fluid and toxins is accelerated. At the same time, more oxygen enters the body, and there are more nutrients to the cells of damaged tissues. Thus, the pain goes away, and the process of recovery is accelerated.
Magnetotherapy in gynecology is appreciated thanks toAbility to cure inflammatory processes in the ovaries, endocervicitis, colpitis, endometritis, adhesions, algomenorrhea. The procedure regulates the menstrual cycle and can even help in the treatment of infertility!
The importance of using this type of therapyIncreases due to the deterioration of the environment. Smog, toxins more and more negatively affect the body, which daily enters into an unequal battle with poisonous substances entering it with food, water, and air. Often, the body is further weakened by malnutrition and long-term intake of medications, which is especially often the case with chronic ailments.
Magnetotherapy, thus, has not only an anesthetic effect, but also cleanses the body, increases immunity, increases the number of lymphocytes and immunoglobulins.
This procedure promotes an early recovery with a minimum of drugs, significantly reduces the side effect of their use.
