Discover The Benefits of Magnetotherapy

Discover the benefits of Magnetotherapy

Due to the development of modernity in recent times, medicine has discovered several treatments to offer even more quality of life to patients. After all, comfort, health and well-being are our main life goals.

In the midst of this development, we have seen the emergence of different techniques in order to optimize cell recovery processes. One of them is the technique that uses the magnetic field to promote regeneration and activation, known as magnetotherapy.

Despite being a highly efficient procedure for the cells of our body, especially for those who have suffered some type of trauma, few know its proper use. Want to know more about it? So, check out our post until the end and have all your questions about magnetotherapy answered.

After all, what is Magnetotherapy?

First of all, we can define that magnetotherapy is nothing more than a treatment that seeks to use magnets and their magnetic fields to stimulate the cells and substance of the body, causing them to vibrate. However, before we delve deeper into the subject, we must first understand what a magnetic field is.

In general, a magnetic field can be defined as a “piece” of space, whose location is acted upon by magnetic forces that are generated by an electric current, a magnet or even an electric field, which may vary according to time.

Therefore, when the magnetic field is directly applied to a human body, for example, magnetism tends to restore the balance of cells, causing the cell membrane to have its function restored. That's because when we are sick, with pain or inflammation, the electrical charge of the cells tends to lose strength. So, the idea behind magnetotherapy is basically to increase the movement of cells in the body, promoting excellent results for the reduction of pain, inflammation, cell regeneration, among other related processes.

Practically, magnets are usually inserted into bracelets, fabric bands, shoes, and other types of accessories, but strategically close to the place to be treated! In addition, the magnetic field can also end up being stimulated through the use of small devices that are placed in the place to be treated in the body.

Remembering that the size of the magnet, as well as the intensity of the magnetic field to be stimulated needs to be according to the type of problem that will be treated. An example to cite is the case of cell regeneration in fractures, for example. For these cases, a magnet or larger device must be used, which produces a magnetic intensity according to the size of the problem in question to be treated.

So make sure you have the support of a qualified professional in order to observe personal needs and use the correct equipment for the problem demanded.

What are the benefits of Magnetotherapy?

Now that you know the concept and importance of magnetotherapy, it's time to learn about its main benefits. Check out what they are below:

1. Promotes increased blood circulation

In general, one of the main benefits that we can notice with magnetotherapy is the stimulation of blood circulation. This is because the magnetic field tends to decrease more and more the contracting that blood vessels perform;

2. Immediate pain relief

With the stimulation of the magnetic field, it encourages our body to produce endorphins, which are basically natural painkillers. In this way, it can be extremely beneficial for problems involving fractures, pain or local discomfort.

3. Reduces inflammation

This is solely due to the increase in circulation and also the pH in the blood, which ends up being reduced. Thus, the patient is able to obtain efficient and rapid improvements in regions that are inflamed.

4. Increased cell regeneration

Not only of cells, but also of bones and tissues. Magnetotherapy can promote better cell functioning, reducing and even preventing muscle and bone wear and tear, etc.

5. Prevents aging

Since magnetic therapy tends to eliminate toxins that harm health and damage cells, the technique can prevent premature aging, in addition to the emergence of diseases that are related to skin aging.

In which cases is magnetotherapy indicated?

First of all, techniques that work the magnetic field in the body can be used whenever necessary, since through it we are able to accelerate the cell recovery process. In conjunction with magnetotherapy, physiotherapy is also indicated in order to contribute to the treatment of fractures, nerve injuries, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, epicondylitis, tendinitis, and others.

Thanks to its great benefit of promoting rapid cell regeneration, magnetotherapy can also be indicated by doctors and even nurses in complex wound healing phases, such as diabetic foot and bed sores, for example.

Who should not use magnetic therapy?

Even though, in general, it is a therapy that can be used in basically all cases, since it causes changes in the body, it may still not be indicated in some situations. Let's check some situations:

• Cancer in any region of the body;

• Excessive functioning of adrenal glands and hyperthyroidism;

• Infections through viruses or fungi;

• Myasthenia gravis;

• Active Bleeding;

In addition, magnetotherapy should also be used in patients who suffer from frequent seizures, in addition to low blood pressure, and even those who have some type of serious psychiatric disorder. However, in patients who have a pacemaker, for example, magnetic therapy should only be available with the approval of a personal cardiologist, since the magnetic field can disrupt the heart rate of some pacemaker devices.


As we have seen, magnetotherapy tends to promote several benefits to patients who have suffered some type of trauma, pain or even local discomfort. The practice is quite simple and tends to be increasingly used, since it is not invasive.
