Are you in pain? Is the pain intense, long-term and does it limit you in every-day activities? Pain is the most common reason to see a physician. Do not underestimate pain; do not needlessly suffer. Seek a solution!
Warning:Do not use this or any other article on the internet to diagnose yourself. Only physicians can correctly diagnose patients. Do not postpone seeing your physician to resolve your health issues in time.
Pain is a subjective unpleasant feeling connected with current or potential damage to tissue of an organism. It is very individual and everyone experiences it differently.
Acute pain is there to protect and warn. It signals a problem in the body and prevents further damage. It arises immediately after the stimulus, e.g. an injury. It can manifest in the form of a sharp or burning sensation which usually lasts for a short period of time.
Pain is considered chronic if it lasts for months or years. It can lead to frustration, depression and despair.
Neuropathic pain is a common form of chronic pain. It accompanies illnesses like diabetes, cancer or multiple sclerosis. It may be experienced as very painful, even though the stimulus does not normally elicit pain (allodynia). The pain experienced can also be much heightened (hyperalgesia).
Pain of the back, joint, muscle, head or pain resulting from nerve damage in diabetes, polyneuropathy, herpes zoster and borreliosis may be chronic. It also applies to post-operation pain, phantom pain and lot of others.
Pain significantly limits the patient in all aspects of life. Thus, soothing pain is essential for improving the quality of life and further treatment.
Pain Treatment – Rid yourself of the Issue
Treatment is comprehensive. If the cause is known, the ideal course of action is to remove the cause. In the other cases, mitigation is the only way.
Drug therapy utilises non-steroid antirheumatics (cyclooxygenase inhibitors, non-specific anti-inflammatory medication – Ibuprofen, Diclofenac and others), which reduce pain and prevent inflammation. Opioids are another option, with their strong analgesic effect. However, they may lead to addiction! Anti-depressants or anxiolytics are support treatment.
Some cases require surgical intervention. Treatment can be supplemented by psychotherapy or physical therapy and electric therapy.
Non-steroid anti-rheumatics – non-steroid drug used to mitigate pain, fever and inflammation.
Opioids – drugs with a strong analgesic effect.
Anti-depressants – a group of drugs that are used to treat depression.
Anxiolytics – used to treat anxiety, psychological tension, fear and nervousness.
Within physical therapy Biomag low-frequency pulsed magnetic therapy plays a significant role. It utilises analgesic, muscle-relaxing, anti-swelling and healing effects with the support of anti-inflammatory effect to the benefit of the patient. It suppresses inflammatory processes and pain, accelerates healing of damaged tissue and helps bring general relief and within reason improved mobility.
Home applications are a huge convenience which allows the patient to continue intensive rehabilitation at home, out of hospital facilities.
The possibility to start treatment early in a new flare-up is also a benefit.
Magnetic therapy is not applied in cases where pain is of unknown origin.
Patented 3D Biomag pulsed therapy. How does it work?
The basic principle of 3D Biomag magnetic therapy is generating electromagnetic pulses. The generated pulses can penetrate through layers of clothing and even body tissues to the place of application. These pulses have specially developed biotropic parameters (e.g. frequency, profile, intensity), thanks to which the pulsed magnetotherapy affects various health conditions.
The term pulse magnetic therapy is most commonly used for physiotherapy using the principle of electromagnetic pulses. The abbreviation PEMF is used in order to be concise.
Patented 3D Biomag technology ensures more precise and uninterrupted pulse profiles, enhances output, and allows pulses to come from various angles.
Pulsed magnetic therapy is not meant to treat pain itself. Such treatment can only be recommended by a physician. Magnetic therapy application is used on symptoms such as pain, swelling and inflammation.
Carefully read the user guide provided by the producer and consult a physician about your health before using any medical device.
Biomag® Lumina 3D-e is an active therapeutic device – a medical device for individual use or in combination with other medical treatment and devices as a supplemental therapy within a comprehensive treatment plan.
The goal of Biomag® low frequency pulsed magnetic field therapy is to utilise its biological effects on tissue in a way that helps mitigate some symptoms. These symptoms are primarily pain, swelling, spasms, and changes in microcirculation. It also promotes healing and mitigates those symptoms that can be influenced by these effects.
Physiological changes in tissue after application of Biomag® magnetic therapy occur due to pain mitigation and vasodilation of capillaries and precapillaries, which leads to the following treatment effects:
pain-relieving – analgesic, reduces pain
healing – promoting regeneration, anti-inflammatory
and anti-rheumatic effects
vasodilating – improves microcirculation in particular
metabolic-detoxifying – accelerates the elimination
of toxins and metabolites
Intended for use on intact skin through a protective layer, e.g., disposable or other sanitary pads.
When using the Biomag® Lumina 3D-e device it is necessary to follow the Principles of safety operation together with Contraindications/Indications and use it in compliance with the specified environmental requirements. Basic safety information is shown on the device display as well.
Devices and applicators of Biomag pulsed magnetic therapy are not to be used with any of the following contraindications. Not respecting these contraindications can lead to damaged health of the patient and the device operator!
If unsure whether you understand the following list of contraindications and guidelines of safe operation of the device, use these contacts. You may prevent possible issues.
Mycosis in the application area
Adrenal gland hyperfunction
Disorders of the hypothalamus and pituitary gland
Pain of unknown origin
Contradiction to treatment recommended by a physician
If you own the AL16-LUMpolarised light applicator, further contraindications are:
Shining directly in one’s eyes (applicable in case of applying polarised light)
With metabolic disorders, where skin becomes photosensitive and while using photostimulating substances (applicable in case of applying polarised light)
Side effects: While applying treatment, special caution should be paid to patients with hypertension and hypotension (or with predisposition to it). Individual effects and using magnetic therapy need to be judged upon particular conditions and reactions of individual patients.
In case of unexpected reaction, immediately cease application! Proceeding with application is recommended only after seeing your attending physician based on the recommended course of action.
This list of contraindications is only general. Always heed list of contraindications in the updated version of the original guide. This guide was provided to you by the producer along with your device.
