Magnotherapy (or magnetotherapy) is a form of physiotherapy that uses electromagnetic energy — specifically low-frequency pulsed magnetic fields at low intensity.
Magnetotherapy promotes tissue regeneration and stimulates natural organic defences. It is believed magnotherapy produces its therapeutic effects by re-establishing order in a sector that is presumably in magnetic disorder.
Cell membranes are basically minuscule batteries, and the electrical voltage they supply can be measured. When these cells become ill — due to infection, trauma, or any other reason — they lose their energy reserve. A healthy cell should have a voltage of 70 millivolts, whereas an ill cell measures only 50 to 55 millivolts. When the cell’s voltage drops below 30 millivolts, it leads to necrosis — the death of the cell.
As the energy inside cells starts to decline, the body feels the consequences in the form of inflammatory processes and bone and joint pains, backache or wounds that fail to heal. The purpose of magnetotherapy is, therefore, to recharge and regenerate cells lacking in vital energy.
