Characteristics of heel spur: A heel spur is a bony thickening that occurs at the attachment of ligaments and muscles to the heel bone or rarely at the insertion of the Achilles tendon. Pain in the heel bone area arises from stress on the tendons and muscles, mechanical overload, improper footwear, or poor foot posture. In heel spur, heel pain occurs around the spur, in the plantar area or on the inner edge of the foot; ankle movements are not reduced and no signs of inflammation or swelling are present outside the heel spur.

X-ray examination can rule out other causes of pain, such as trauma, arthrosis, and others. Prevention should include proper footwear, foot care and exercise, massage, stretching the toes and correction of the foot posture by using orthotic supports. In athletes suffering from persistent pain, special podiatric examination and follow-up care are recommended. Treatment for mild forms of heel spurs: topical application of anti-inflammatory creams, orthotic devices and rehabilitation. In severe cases, treatment with acoustic shock waves. Soft X-ray therapy has gradually been abandoned.

Using magnetic therapy in heel spur pain

In heel spur pain, Biomag low-frequency pulsed magnetic therapy is successfully used within rehabilitation therapy, as it can help manage milder conditions of heel spur due to its analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and healing effects. In addition, it can be used during follow-up care after acoustic shock wave and surgery, as it accelerates healing.

Application of magnetic therapy in heel spur pain

In heel spurs, we apply low analgesic frequencies of 4-10 Hz in the acute phase, and 10-50 Hz treatment for follow-up care and prevention, preferably via solenoids.

Patented 3D Biomag pulsed therapy. How does it work?

The basic principle of 3D Biomag magnetotherapy is generating electromagnetic pulses. The generated pulses penetrate through layers of clothing and even body tissues to the place of application. These pulses have specially developed biotropic parameters (e.g. frequency, profile, intensity), thanks to which the pulsed magnetotherapy affects various health conditions.

The term pulse magnetotherapy is most commonly used for physiotherapy using the principle of electromagnetic pulses. The abbreviation PEMF is used in order to be concise.

Patented 3D Biomag technology ensures more precise and uninterrupted pulse profiles, enhances output, and allows pulses to come from various angles. This makes it a completely new and unique medical technology on the market.

The effects of pulsed therapy - clinical studies

Positive effects of pulse magnetic field (PEMF) are evidenced by clinical studies by authorities on the subject and renowned institutions. The newest list of these clinical studies can be found on this page. Contact us and we will gladly help to familiarize yourself with this expert data.

Our department uses pulse magnetic field application very well. We appreciate that not only is there an option to used numbered programmes, but also to set up our own programmes. The device is small and easy to operate with good output.

University hospital Na Bulovce, Prague – Physiotherapy department

We have been utilising pulse magnetic field treatment in our spa for more than 10 years. We use Biomag devices for both physiotherapy and spa treatment. It is very advantageous to combine magnetotherapy with other physiotherapy methods because the effect of magnetotherapy potentiates with other methods (analgesic, anti-oedematous, recovery and myorelaxing).

We are happy with the device. The applicators are also easy to operate, and treatment results are satisfying. Feedback from patients is positive. Average number of applications is 50 per week.

Masaryk hospital, Jilemnice

I use Biomag for healing foot spurs, the difficulties disappear at the moment.

Martin Król, Praha

I tried magnetotherapy for joints and for teeth inflammation with excellent results. Husband used the device for spurs on his heels, the pain receded. Magnetotherapy has a wide application, we feel fresh and have a greater taste for life.

Blanka Petrášová, Diváky

It's hard to describe all the problems I'm using the device for, but I've completely eliminated the pain of the right heel - spurs, elbow and hip-joint pains.
