Do you feel pain in a limb or a different body part which was previously amputated? Is it a burning, spasmodic, stabbing pain coming in bouts? Does it come from the area, where it came from before the amputation? You are probably suffering from phantom pain.
Characteristics of Phantom Pain and its Causes
Phantom pain is pain in a part of the body that was amputated.
In most cases, the affected area is a limb. However, cases where extracted teeth or breasts after mastectomy caused the effect are not uncommon.
Some describe phantom pain as burning pain, while others depict the feeling of heat, cold, itchiness, twinging, pressure or tingling. The pain tends to start within the first few days after amputation and the time it lasts varies.
We differentiate between phantom pain and stump pain, where malfunctioning vascular supply, nerve irritation and other causes may be at fault.
With phantom pain, the exact cause is not clear as of yet.
Phantom Pain Treatment – Rid yourself of the Issue
As the cause is not clear, it is not possible to set a successful treatment strategy.
Treatment procedure may include drugs (e.g. anti-depressants, analgesics, local anaesthetics).
Physical treatment methods like massage, electric stimulation, ultrasound, acupuncture and others may bring relief.
Timely rehabilitation by walking with optimally designed prosthesis can also benefit the patient.
An interesting support method worth mentioning is a mirror box, which may mitigate phantom pain through creating an optical illusion.
3D Biomag pulsed therapy may be used as part of rehabilitation treatment of phantom pain. Its goal is to reduce pain, improve microcirculation and promote the healing process.
Explanation of chosen terms:
- Attack – a sudden bout of an illness.
- Amputation – removal of a peripheral part of the body from the torso either surgically or by accident. It is the last resort in the course of saving an extremity or life.
Patented 3D Biomag pulsed therapy. How does it work?
The basic principle of 3D Biomag magnetotherapy is generating electromagnetic pulses. The generated pulses 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 magnetotherapy 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. This makes it a completely new and unique medical technology on the market.
What are the benefits of therapy of phantom pain?
- Helps soothe pain.
- Improves microcirculation and promotes the healing process.
- Thanks to being easy to use, it can be applied at home.
- It’s a solution with no additional medicaments.
- It’s a non-invasive treatment.

The effects of pulsed therapy - clinical studies
The clinically-most-significant effect of 3D Biomag pulsed therapy in patients with phantom pain is mainly in the analgesic (pain-killing) effect.
Positive effects of pulse magnetic field (PEMF) are evidenced by clinical studies by authorities on the subject and renowned institutions. The newest list of these clinical studies can be found on this page. Contact us and we will gladly help to familiarize yourself with this expert data.
Our department uses pulse magnetic field application very well. We appreciate that not only is there an option to used numbered programmes, but also to set up our own programmes. The device is small and easy to operate with good output.
University hospital Na Bulovce, Prague – Physiotherapy department
We have been utilising pulse magnetic field treatment in our spa for more than 10 years. We use Biomag devices for both physiotherapy and spa treatment. It is very advantageous to combine magnetotherapy with other physiotherapy methods because the effect of magnetotherapy potentiates with other methods (analgesic, anti-oedematous, recovery and myorelaxing).
