Magnetic Bio Stimulation (MBS) and Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF)
As seen on Dr. Oz. We have been using this technology for years at Physioactive to successfully treat all types of pain and to promote healing.
- Fractures (especially non-union fractures)
- Connective tissue repair
- Delayed wound and bone healing
- Sports injuries
- Decubitus ulcers
- Migraine headaches
- Chronic and degenerative conditions
- Acute and chronic inflammation
Pulsating Magnetic Field Therapy (PMT) and magnetic Biostimulation are more modern and sophisticated versions of a treatment that has a long history: the use of magnetic fields to stimulate circulation and increase oxygen partial pressure.
Other Reported Benefits of Magnetic Bio Stimulation
- Sufferers of chronic fatigue, insomnia, and conditions where the patient feels chronic muscle pain, such as fibromyalgia, have been found to respond well to treatments using magnetic items while sleeping, such as mattresses, pillows, and blankets.
- Studies have shown that sinuses can be affected by magnetic influence, and sinus pain and blocked sinuses frequently respond quickly to magnetic biostimulation.
- The ability of magnetic biostimulation to penetrate all the body’s cells has made it one of the most effective treatment methods for fractures and reducing the pain associated with these injuries.
- Chronic IBS and other gastro-intestinal disorders respond well to the use of MBS, usually in combination with TCM acupuncture, Osteopathy or IMS
NEW Therapy by Combining Infrared Rays & Magnetic Biostimulation
- Deep penetration (more than any other modality on the market including laser)
- Proven effectiveness
By increasing blood supply and metabolism, Magnetic Biostimulation and Infrared Rays can be used to target a specific area, or to treat the entire body.
The therapeutic effect of magnetic Biostimulation is based on its stimulation of circulation, and the exchange of ions between the inner and outer cell wall. Both of these contribute to the overall functioning of the cell and the whole body. The ability to have an effect at the cellular level is unique to magnetic field therapy, enabling it to reach parts of the body that other treatment methods cannot reach. Magnetic field treatments have a long history, dating back to 1530, and our MBS unit is the newest and most effective form of the therapy to date.
Effects of magnetic biostimulation on the cell
Why Magnetic Bio Stimulation Could be the answer to your problems
Our bodies and each cell have an electromagnetic field. Each nerve signal is an electrical event. We could not move, feel pain, or experience joy without changes in our electromagnetic field. Have you ever walk into a sports arena during the playoffs. It’s electric! EMF is all around us. Did you ever wonder why you feel better near the ocean or in the mountains? These large energetic bodies can affect the function of your body. In fact, you might not realize it, but we are actually heavily dependent upon magnetic energy. So much so that we wouldn’t be able to function properly without it. Research that has been conducted on the human body has shown that our existence does not solely depend on the millions of chemical reactions that take place in our bodies, but also relies on the electro-magnetic interactions that occur since a large proportion of the chemicals found inside a human body are electro-chemical ions. The distribution, flow and the manner in which these ions interact with each other influence many bodily functions. Magnetic biostimulation is a fairly recent development and is a form of treatment that manipulates these ions to facilitate the healing process.
How Does Magnetic Bio Stimulation Work?
It utilizes electromagnetic devices to apply magnetic fields to the body. Other forms of magnetic therapy involve applying static magnets to the body for extended periods of time that can provide results for very chronic conditions that need very little stimuli over long periods of time. Our TCM therapist will perform this if necessary. These magnets can come in the form of many everyday items such as rings, bracelets, insoles for shoes, plasters, mattresses, and blankets, meaning you can continue to live your life normally while undergoing the treatment. But how does magnetic biostimulation help to heal the human body and improve the patient’s overall physical condition? When your body is exposed to the magnetic field generated by the technology used in one of these sessions, the magnetic energy doesn’t just hit your skin, it reaches every single cell in your body, affecting the individual molecules that make up a cell.
What Effects Does Magnetic Bio Stimulation Have?
Our body can only heal and rid itself of pain by delivering food and oxygen and removal of waste. When a patient is suffering from a chronic condition, the affected tissue only receives a limited amount of nutrition and retains its waste, thus getting sicker and sicker. Magnetic biostimulation is able to quickly deal with this issue, stimulating increased levels of oxygen and subsequently providing you with more energy on a cellular level. The benefits of this can be seen most notably in patients that have suffered some sort of serious muscle trauma, or have undergone major surgery.
Magnetic biostimulation is also able to increase blood flow to the affected part of the body, which not only helps to deliver the higher levels of the oxygen we just talked about but also removes waste products that could be preventing or slowing down the healing process. This can be achieved because the ion channels that this treatment is able to manipulate are responsible for regulating muscle contractions. Magnetic biostimulation causes capillary networks in the affected area to contract and relax to modify blood flow to meet the body’s requirements. It is damage to the small nerves which leads to bloating, cellulite and the feeling of thickened or congested tissue.
Magnetic therapy is also known to increase the productivity of the cells in damaged tissues by facilitating the exchange of ions from the inner part of the cell wall and the outer part. This results in increased metabolism, not just in those cells, but in the entire body. This allows your body to supply the damaged tissue with the nutrients required for efficient healing, and is known to quickly reduce swelling.
Remember how we said earlier that many of the chemicals inside the human body are chemical-electrical ions, well there is no better example of these in action than when the nerve system sends pain signals to the brain. Under normal circumstances, nerves possess a precise balance of positive and negative ions, and when this shifts, pain signals are re-laid to the brain. Some nerve disorders or damaged nerves can cause false pain signals to be repeatedly sent to the brain, making life very uncomfortable, but magnetic biostimulation helps to re-establish the balance of these ions, subsequently lowering the frequency of these pain signals, or preventing them altogether.
What is magnetic therapy used for?
Magnetic biostimulation (MBS) improves cellular health, cell function, and promotes circulation. It is the only device that can have direct effects deep enough to target most joints and deep tissues in your body.
What is Biomagnetism therapy?
Biostimulation, sometimes called biomagnetism, or pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, works with resonance and vibration to improve “flow” of blood and lymph (your body’s garbage collector), as well as improved cell wall permeability (the security guard of each cell) and mitochondrial function (the powerhouse of every part of your body becomes supercharged).
What are the side effects of magnetic therapy?
There are no known side effects for magnetic biostimulation. However, if you have a very chronic condition with very poor healing, this machine can stimulate a healing cascade. This will trigger a healing response in a degenerative area of your body and as a result can make you sore for a few days as your body becomes aware of this area and begins the healing process.
What type of magnets are used in magnetic therapy?
Just your ordinary run of the mill magnets you learned about in grade school. What makes this so effective is two fold: First, they are very powerful magnets that you can feel for several feet and are strong enough to be felt right through your body. It is the ability of the machine to oscillate at specific frequencies Hertz (Hz) that are set by your physiotherapist based on your stage of healing and body part.
How are magnets used to treat rheumatoid arthritis?
Magnetic Biostimulation can be effective for rheumatoid arthritis as well as inflammatory and auto-immune disorders. By stimulating our own bodies cells and its ability to penetrate deeply, MBS can improve joint health and repair. It also improves nervous system function and blood supply that assist in the body’s own regulation thereby assisting in homeostasis (homeostasis is when the body is in proper balance)
Can PEMF treatment cause cancer?
Many make the claim that PEMF can help in conditions such as cancer. We are not aware of any good studies that support that claim and it is outside the scope of physiotherapy to treat cancer as a disease. However, we do help many clients deal with symptoms related to cancer such as pain and loss of function. PEMF may or may not be part of that care program.
How does PEMF reduce pain?
PEMF or MBS can be very effective in stimulating healing and improving “flow” of the fluids (arterial supply = delivery of oxygen and food/glucose, venous return = removing CO2 and small waste, lymph = larger waste) in your body. Many times our pain is a result of collection of waste in one area. Imagine if they stopped collecting garbage from your neighbourhood. It wouldn’t take long for things to start stinking?
What are the benefits of magnetic therapy?
Pain relief, healing and repair of recently injured tissue, improved fluid flow, cell function and blood supply. Other modalities such as laser are also effective, but MBS is able to penetrate to much deeper tissues.
Is magnetic therapy safe?
Is magnetic therapy painful?
No. However, if you have a very chronic condition with very poor healing, your physiotherapist may decide to turn the MBS up to a level stimulate a healing cascade. This will trigger a healing response in a degenerative area of your body and as a result can make you sore for a few days as your body becomes aware of this area and begins the healing process. Your therapist will discuss these specific conditions with you before proceeding.
