Characteristics of arthritis of the spine: Use this program and application in patients suffering from arthritis affecting predominantly the spine.
Purpose of magnetic therapy application in arthritis of the spine
In arthritis of the spine, the purpose of the application is to suppress inflammatory symptoms, reduce pain and improve mobility. Furthermore, the aim is to establish better conditions for healing the arthritis and normal functioning of the spine by modifying the vascular system and by enhancing blood flow, oxygen and nutrient supply, and eliminating metabolites.
Using magnetic therapy in arthritis of the spine
Arthritis of the spine is represented particularly by ankylosing spondylitis (Bechterew’s disease), which is a chronic inflammatory disease mainly affecting the SI joint and intervertebral joints, resulting in gradual stiffening up to ankylosis of the spine.
In rheumatoid arthritis of the spine affecting the cervical area of the spine, synovitis of the intervertebral joints develops, which results in damage to ligament structures, bones and even in dislocation of the atlanto-axial joint.
From the therapeutical point of view, in arthritis of the spine the most important treatment measures are modification of the environment and lifestyle, rehabilitation, spa treatment and the administration of anti-inflammatory and analgesic drugs.
Arthritis of the spine is one of the main indications for Biomag low-frequency pulsed magnetic therapy. The therapy is beneficial due to its analgesic, anti-swelling, anti-inflammatory and healing effects. Magnetic therapy helps improve mobility, slows down further damage to the joints in chronic patients and provides overall pain relief.
Application of magnetic therapy in arthritis of the spine
In arthritis of the spine, initially we should preferably reduce pain using low frequencies from 4-6 Hz and once pain relief is achieved, treatment should be combined with regeneration programs at 25-50 Hz. The appropriate applicator is selected according to the localisation of the disease. Most frequently, we use a solenoid on small joints and a large flat or bed applicator on the spine.
