Depending on the source or location of pain, as well as whether it is acute or chronic, the ability to relieve pain is very variable and unpredictable. Pain processes are multifaceted, including both the peripheral and central neural systems. Therapies should be adapted to the unique characteristics of each patient’s pain process. Psychological factors have a significant impact on whether and how pain is felt, as well as whether or not it will become chronic. The most successful pain management treatments, especially for chronic pain, need numerous concurrent methods. It is uncommon for a single modality to solve a problem.Learn more by visiting PEMF Therapy
A new and completely different strategy has been increasingly examined in recent years. This includes the use of magnetic fields (MF), which can be static (permanent) or time-varying (most often, pulsed) (PEMFs). A variety of fields with varying strengths and frequencies have been tested. There is no such thing as a “gold standard” at this time. Experience, confidence, convenience, and cost will all influence which fields are chosen. Because there appears to be no significant benefit to any particular MF application, owing to the uncertainty of determining the true underlying source of pain, regardless of the purported pathology, any technique can be employed empirically and treatment altered according on the response. MF treatments have been determined to have relatively minimal danger after thousands of patient-years of use around the world. The main safety concerns are implanted electrical devices, pregnancy, and seizures with certain frequency patterns in seizure-prone people.
Magnetic fields have a variety of effects on pain perception. These include both direct and indirect activities. Neuron firing, calcium ion movement, membrane potentials, endorphin levels, nitric oxide levels, dopamine levels, acupuncture activities, and nerve regeneration are all direct impacts of magnetic fields. Circulation, muscle, edoema, tissue oxygen, inflammation, healing, prostaglandins, cellular metabolism, and cell energy levels are some of the indirect impacts of magnetic fields on physiologic function.
