What is magnetic field therapy?
Magnetic Field Therapy is a non-invasive, drug-free form of treatment that uses different kinds of magnets to relieve pain and facilitate overall healing. The treatment is based on a theory that magnets produce magnetic fields that can penetrate the body and affect the functioning of the individual cells as well as improve the workings of the nervous system and other organs. It is also believed that magnets have healing powers that are associated with muscle pain and stiffness.
What is magnetic field therapy used for?
Magnetic Field Therapy is mostly used as a treatment option for the different types of pain such as in the back and feet. Specifically, scientists have studied its use for treating conditions such as arthritis pain, headaches, insomnia, wound healing, and fibromyalgia pain.
Magnetic field therapy is not thought to have complications or negative side effects when it is used to combine with other conventional medical treatment.
Additionally, despite being generally safe for most people, magnetic field therapy is not a good idea for people using a pacemaker, have an insulin pump, or who are pregnant.
