Application of magnetic therapy in pain after amputation
In pain after amputation, application of Biomag low-frequency pulsed magnetic therapy at analgesic and vasodilatory frequencies to the appropriate segments of the spine is recommended 2-3 times a day on a long-term basis, and locally to the post-surgery stump using a solenoid and flat applicator.
Pain in the stump may be caused by poor blood supply or nerve irritation, etc. Professional internal and neurological examination is required and treatment should be initiated according to the identified cause.
