Magnetotherapy – what does the treatment look like?

Rehabilitation with the use of a magnetic field does not require special preparation. It is not necessary to expose the affected area. During the procedure, you can be dressed. Before the procedure, however, remember to remove jewellery, watch and put away electronic devices. Do not carry a mobile phone, smartwatch or other such devices.

The procedure is most often performed in a supine position. The patient lies down on a couch, which is placed in a special hoop. During the procedure, a magnetic field is emitted, which acts on the affected area. The procedure usually takes several minutes, and the patient feels pleasant warmth or tingling at the application site.

Sometimes the procedure is carried out in a sitting position, if the upper or lower limb is subjected to therapy. Then the diameter of the rim is much smaller.

Magnetotherapy – side effects

Side effects are extremely rare. If they eventually appear, they are temporary and spontaneously disappear, and these may be: drop in blood pressure, blurred vision, irritability and problems with concentration. In the KAL-Med clinic, magnetotherapy is performed using a BTL device.
