Directly stimulating and influencing brain functions was investigated in a double-blind, placebo-controlled study in 2013. In this clinical study, frequencies up to 100 Hz and powers from 0.4 to 1.4 mT were used.
Healthy volunteers underwent pulsed magnet therapy applications, while a control group underwent therapy with a mock device – blind applications. After the end of the therapy, each individual’s pain threshold was tested by gradually warming the rod held in his or her non-dominant hand.
The study used this method to confirm the hypothesis that the pain threshold is significantly increased after pulsed magnetic field stimulation and thus helps in tolerating transient painful conditions. Thus, pain control can be achieved by the comfort method of pulsed magnet therapy in addition to the use of analgesic drugs.
