Alzheimer’s dementia (so-called Alzheimer’s disease): Alzheimer’s disease is a neurodegenerative disease of the brain, in which progressive dementia occurs. Alzheimer’s dementia results in the destruction of nerve fibres and nerve cells, along with changes in the metabolic activity of the brain due to the accumulation of pathological proteins. This leads to brain atrophy, beta-amyloid plaque formation, depletion of acetylcholine, sterile inflammation and the loss of neurons due to the effects of free oxygen radicals. The currently available therapy for Alzheimer’s dementia slows down the disease’s progression, and includes treatment aimed at improving brain metabolism, hormonal therapy, acetylcholinesterase inhibitors and the administration of drugs with anti-inflammatory and supplemental antioxidative effects.
Using magnetic therapy in Alzheimer’s dementia
Rehabilitation is used as an adjunctive therapy for Alzheimer’s dementia, including low-frequency pulsed magnetic therapy, which improves the oxygen and nutrient supply to the central nervous system due to its vasodilatory and anti-inflammatory effects, and helps slow down the disease’s progression and stabilise health. Higher stimulatory frequencies leads to direct stimulation of the neural activity.
Application of magnetic therapy in Alzheimer’s dementia
In Alzheimer’s dementia, daily application programs are recommended using the frequency ranges 2-25 Hz and 50-81 Hz, which have vasodilatory and stimulation effects. A suitable solenoid should be used on the head, and a flat applicator on the spinal column.
