Magneto Therapy and Respiratory System

This summary, provided by several doctors and academicians including Professor Ushakov A.A., Consultant Physiotherapist of Cardio-thoracic Surgery Institute, Moscow, discusses COPD, Chronic Bronchitis and other respiratory related illnesses.


COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) and Bronchial Asthma can be difficult to treat. It is often complicated with pulmonary-cardiac and cardiac-pulmonary deficiency. Among unspecified chronic lung diseases the most common inflammation location are lungs and pleura. Different viruses and bacteria via blood and lymphatic system penetrate to the lung tissues and cause inflammation.
A COPD pathological factor is micro-thrombosis inside blood vessels. Micro-thrombosis appears if the blood is high in prothrombin, thromboplastin and at reduction of antithrombin and fibrinogen activity. In the release, made by Dr. Evdokimova and Dr. Orlov, they stated that after having treated 205 patients with COPD, they had found out that the common medication for antithrombin activity and cellular homeostasis was not effective.
Use of low frequency magneto therapy, no matter static or pulse, was leading to coagulation reduction that was shown by reduction in thrombin-thromboplastin, thrombocytes and thrombocytes coagulation.
Influenza, trauma and surgery can lead to lung movement restrictions which increase the chances of COPD and spasmodic asthma complications of Chronic Bronchitis.

COPD and Bronchial Asthma Treatment

There are numerous ways of treating these conditions. Pulmonary rehabilitation programs are clinically effective and cost effective as they reduce the number of hospital re-admissions.
There are a lot of methods that can be used to treat these conditions, but the most effective methods of recovery are Decimeter Wave Therapy and Magneto Therapy.

Decimeter Wave Therapy
This method involves targeting and exactly works on inflammation without disturbance of the surrounding tissues. Decimeter waves penetrate deep into the lungs and allow to control heat dosage.

Magneto Therapy
Nowadays, treatment by means of magnetic field causes great interest all over the world. Fixed and pulse magnetic fields can be vertical, horizontal, diagonal, right-hand rotation, left-hand rotation. Magnetic field is extremely precise at inflammation targeting in induction and reflex zone of the affected internal organs. It generally impacts the body systems through the endocrine glands. This therapy is very consistent and the effect after one application can last from 24 hours up to 6 days.
Doctor Oshipov who treated 185 patients diagnosed with asthma by means of magneto therapy reported that constant magnetic field increased pharmacological effect of all medication so there was no need for additional hormone-therapy. The research has shown that magneto therapy has spasmodic effect, which helps to reduce attacks, increases absorption of oxygen, stimulates neuromuscular cells and increases synchronized contraction of myocardial muscle, restoring functionality of myocardial muscle.
ULCT thermal and electric field therapy works as a very effective anti-inflammatory cure but lung area application should be restricted as it could lead to complications with pneumosclerosis.

Importance of Magneto Therapy

American researchers have found that magneto therapy is very effective. The experiment made on a group of healthy volunteers proved that magneto therapy reduced coagulation time from 17+/- in 80 minutes to 12+/- in 60 minutes.
The increase of fibrinolysis in healthy humans shows the importance of magneto therapy usage in secondary fibrinolysis to break down blood clots as preventive treatment of deep vein thrombosis.
In 1996, Dr. Schastagi was working with magneto therapy devices in a hospital. While contacting with 2000 patients, he proved that:
  • Magneto-therapy strengthens smooth muscle of arteries and baroceptors (baroceptors - sensors located inside blood vessels regulating blood pressure. E.G.)
  • Magneto-therapy shows effective work on vascular endothelium cells (blood cells functions, fluid filtration, homeostasis E.G.)
It is shown that magnetic field can improve the immune system in cancer patients. The most obvious clinically proven effects of low frequency magneto therapy are:
  • anti-inflammatory
  • angioedema trophic regenerative
  • sedative
  • cell regeneration
  • micro-circulation improvement
  • anti-coagulation
At present, ELAMED is manufacturing numerous magnetic therapy devices with travelling, fixed, pulsed and low intensity frequencies 1 - 100 Hz intensity, 1 - 25 mTI.
