Functional magnetic stimulation for faster strengthening of atrophic musculature
The functional magnetic stimulation is a non-invasive, painless method that allows a contactless stimulation of the superficial and the deep muscle structures under the influence of a high magnetic field with a strength of 1.5 to 2T. The FMS enriches the arsenal of the physiotherapists in their fight against certain ailments suffered by the patients. This new method uses the rapid changing of magnetic field (magnetic induction) in order to cause a quality muscle contraction. The advantage is in the intensity of the magnetic field that can penetrate up to 5 cm into the soft tissues and to cause contractions of the deep muscle structures that usually cannot be achieved with the standard electro stimulation.
The method is painless and non-invasive, it can be performed without a direct skin contact, and the treatments are adapted individually to each patient depending on their condition. The duration of the treatment is 10-20 minutes in a series of 10 treatments, every second day.
No special preliminary preparations are required for the treatment, only the appropriate positioning. The use of the FMS applicator requires no prior locating of the motor points on the muscles or on the nerve, in order to perform the treatment. The applicants used for this method are so designed in order to cause an adequate muscle contraction. With this method we can achieve much simpler and faster strengthening of the atrophic musculature, a sensory input, as well as a nerve-muscle education of the movements.
Indications for treatment: disorders of the musculoskeletal system; degenerative arthritis; rheumatoid arthritis; muscle pains; spinal disorders (acute / chronic lumbalgia, sciatica, spina bifida, spondylitis); the nerve disorders (peripheral nerve damage); muscle relaxation; frozen shoulder; rehabilitation of nerves and muscles after fractures; sports injuries; pain control, muscular atrophy, ankylosis and urogenital diseases.
Contraindications: permanent pacemaker; malignant arrhythmias; placement of the applicator through the carotid sinus; pregnancy; metal within the treated area (joints` implants, osteosynthetic materials, etc.)
