The success of back pain treatment using low-frequency pulsed magnetic fields at 5 – 10 Hz was evaluated in 36 patients in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial (Lee et al., 2006).
To increase the predictive value of the results, any analgesics or physiotherapy was prohibited during the entire duration of the study. The pulsed magnet therapy itself was applied for 15 minutes three times a week for three weeks. The next 4 weeks were then used to evaluate the long-term effects of the therapy.
The results clearly confirmed the analgesic effect of the pulsed magnetic field. Throughout the duration of this study, low-frequency pulsed magnet therapy provided significant pain relief to its patients.
The placebo group did not achieve nearly such results at any of the three measurement checkpoints, i.e. not even after the end of the treatment, not even a week later, or even after another three weeks.
Pulsed magnet therapy at frequencies of 5-10 Hz has been shown to relieve pain and improve mobility. Pulsed magnetotherapy is thus a useful therapeutic tool for the conservative treatment of chronic low back pain.
