Diabetic neuropathic pain in 225 patients was investigated in a randomized double-blind placebo-controlled parallel study (Weintraub et al., 2009). The study was conducted at 16 academic and clinical sites in 13 countries.
This scientific work, published in the official journal of the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine, was conducted in 225 patients with symptomatic diabetic peripheral neuropathy.
An international team sought to determine whether repetitive and cumulative exposure of painful feet to low-frequency pulsed magnetotherapy at frequencies ranging from 8 to 25 Hz would relieve neuropathic pain, affect sleep quality and provide nerve regeneration.
Interesting and positive results emerged from this very large study. Using skin biopsies in three standard areas on the lower limb, a significant increase in epidermal nerve fiber density was noted, even though there was no immediate elimination of neuropathic pain in this magnet therapy setting.
Therefore, the expert team from this study proposed further extended testing of higher intensity low-frequency pulsed magnet therapy with longer duration of treatment applications. The reason for this suggestion was, among other things, the fact that patients experienced an overall improvement and reduction of itching in the feet.
