Magnetic Therapy for Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is a condition in which the bone becomes porous due to low bone mass and structural deterioration of bone tissue.
Unfortunately, Osteoporosis is a silent disease. The bone deterioration occurs without the appearance of any obvious symptoms. People may just not realize that their bones are becoming weak and fragile until things get worse to cause a hip fracture or a vertebral collapse.
Magnetic Therapy is observed to have wonderful effect on a lot of people suffering from Osteoporosis. Magnetic therapy follows a simple rule when it comes to treating diseases like Osteoporosis and Arthritis. The idea is to keep the magnet close as possible to the site of pain. This can be done through osteoporosis straps, wraps, insoles, pads and jewelry.
For a faster result, powerful magnets of strength high as 2500-3000 gauss/250-300 m tesla are used to treat osteoporosis in the effected load bearing joints.
Osteoporosis very often results in fractures and Magnetic Therapy helps a great deal in healing fractures faster. Its better to apply the magnets at the site of fracture as soon as it occurs. If your bone is plastered it may not be possible to apply magnets but you can apply them once your plaster is removed.
Magnetic Therapy works wonders in encouraging the bone knits and new cell growth within your fractured bone.
