Characteristics of diabetic foot: Diabetes may cause diabetic neuropathy and microangiopathy - i.e. damage to the minor arteries that supply oxygen and nutrients to the lower extremity tissues - so-called diabetic foot develops. In case diabetes is managed insufficiently and diabetic polyneuropathy advances, acid metabolites accumulate in the tissues, leading to further progression of the disease. Trophic changes may result in venous ulcers and extremity amputation.
Purpose of magnetic therapy application in diabetic foot
In diabetic foot, the purpose of application is to reduce pain and improve blood circulation in the tissues. The therapy supports vascular flow and blood vessel dilatation to increase oxygen and nutrient supply to the tissues and release and remove accumulated acid metabolites. In this way, we improve the chances of saving the patient’s extremity and reduce the secondary effects of diabetes on the vascular system.
Using magnetic therapy in diabetic foot
Diabetes mellitus, or simply diabetes, is a chronic disease with a permanent glucose metabolism disorder that leads to elevated blood glucose levels and other changes in the metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. As a result of these disorders, pathological changes may develop in the nerve fibres (diabetic neuropathy) and minor blood vessels (diabetic microangiopathy). Complications (secondary effects) include: diabetic retinopathy, which can lead to blindness, diabetic nephropathy, which can lead to kidney disease and failure, diabetic neuropathy, which disrupts all sympathetic and parasympathetic functioning, and macrovascular disease, including disorders of the peripheral arteries, cerebrovascular and ischaemic heart disease and which can develop, in the lower extremities so-called diabetic foot.
Benefits of magnetic therapy application in diabetic foot
In diabetic foot, Biomag low-frequency pulsed magnetic therapy reduces all secondary complications due to its anti-degenerative effects on the nervous tissue and vasodilatory effects on minor arterioles and capillaries. Thereby it delays and reduces the occurrence and severity of diabetic complications and improves the quality of life. It has also been very successful in healing venous leg ulcers and other vascular complications of diabetes. Long-term use of this therapy can be highly beneficial in diabetic patients (both in paediatric diabetes and diabetes in the elderly). Treatment should be initiated gradually and preferably from the lower extremities. This procedure minimises the potential for a stronger adaptive response.
Application of magnetic therapy in diabetic foot
In diabetic foot, apply vasodilatory frequencies daily to treat circulatory disorders of the extremities, and vasodilatory and stimulation frequencies to the abdominal area (pancreas, liver and kidneys) preferably using a large solenoid or flat folding applicator.
