A comparison of the efficacy of pulsed magnetic therapy (20 Hz, 5 mT) with two other commonly used treatment methods – iontophoresis and phonophoresis. This comparison was carried out on a group of 55 patients.
In addition to the examination of the effects of pulsed magnetic therapy, some studies also compare its therapeutic benefits with other procedures used in physiotherapy, for example the iontophoresis and phonophoresis.
