What is Magnetic Therapy?
Magnetic therapy is safe, non-invasive method of applying magnetic fields to the body for therapeutic purposes. The American Medical Association has approved magnets to speed up the healing process of breaks cracks and fractures. Clinical testing has found that magnetic mattress pads may improve the quality of sleep and overall well being without adverse side effects. Whether your using magnets independently or as an adjunct to your current treatment, magnetic therapy may be very effective for natural relief for musculoskeletal injuries and chronic conditions, making it an excellent choice for application for everyone.
How does Magnetic Therapy Work?
All physical and mental functions are controlled by electromagnetic fields produced by the movement of electro-chemicals (ions) within the body. When an injury occurs and tissue is damaged, positively charged ions move to the effected area, causing pain and swelling. In order for the healing to take place, the injured site must be restored to its natural negative electromagnetic charge. Pain and inflammatory-related electro-chemicals must be removed and oxygen and nutrients transferred to the area. The application of a magnetic field to an injured area helps restore the normal electromagnetic balance. The magnetic field relaxes capillary walls, as well as surrounding muscle and connective tissues, allowing for increase in blood flow. More oxygen and nutrients are transferred to the injury site, while pain and inflammatory-related electro-chemicals are more efficiently removed. The overall process restores the normal electromagnetic balance of the area, relieving pain and inflammation, and promoting accelerated healing.
How long will it take for magnets to relieve pain?
Magnetic fields will influence different parts of the body in different ways. For example, a small injury such as a swollen knee may respond very quickly to the magnetic therapy with the symptoms being relieved in a few days. This may not be true for this person with a different aliment on a different part of the body. The length of time the magnets will take to resolve any injuies depends on the severity of the injury, how much inflammation is around the injured area, what caused the injury and what type of magnets you use to heal the injured area.
