A method of treatment involving application of a pulsating, low-frequency magnetic field to a specific part of the body. This causes displacement of ions, resulting in hyperpolarization of cell membranes. This increases the efficiency of cellular oxygen use, enhancing metabolism and repair processes. Magnetic fields have an analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects, and decrease swelling. In addition, they stimulate and improve chemical reactions in cells and accelerate the healing process of injured tissues and fractures.
