Magnetic field therapy works in the cell and supports the functioning of inner regulation mechanisms while enhancing the self-healing capacity. The action of magnetic field therapy may be summarized according to three main effects:
1) Increased blood circulation.
Thermographic photography shows the increase of circulation under a pulsed electromagnetic field. This leads to a better nutrition and rejuvenation of cells.
2) Improved oxygen supply.
The PEMF ensures increased oxygen extraction (deoxygenation) and enriches the tissue with oxygen. The exchange of oxygen is extremely fast in the basic tissues. Here the oxygen partial pressure rises by 400 - 800% therefore all cells breath and function better and better.
3) Enhanced Metabolism - PEMF enhances both anabolism and catabolism.
PEMF influences the ion concentration on both sides of the cell membrane. They exert a positive effect on the cellular metabolism and thus on the functioning of the complete system. They do that within a defined region of frequency and amplitude (the so called window effect). The function of the sodium-potassium pump, which is responsible for maintaining the negative potential in the cell, is also fundamentally influenced by the effect of alternating magnetic fields. The sodium potassium pump is an enzyme located on the cell membrane. It transports NA+ ions out of the cell and K+ ions into the cell. Another well-known effective mechanism is the influence on the stimulus threshold of the nerve cells through an accumulation or a removal of charge carriers. This mechanism can cause a decrease in pain over a longer period.
