The possibility of treating osteoarthritis of the knee with a low-frequency pulsed magnetic field with a frequency of 1.5 Hz and an intensity of 30 mT was tested on 70 patients by the Romanian team I. Moldovan in his randomized and placebo-controlled study (2012).
The main aim was to see if pulsed magnetotherapy would have any more significant effects than ultrasound therapy and thermotherapy with peloid compress.
After 10 days of treatment, when pulsed magnet therapy was applied for 15 minutes a day to only 35 patients in the experimental group, all 70 patients showed improvement.
However, patients with early or moderate knee osteoarthritis who underwent pulsed magnet therapy confirmed the much greater analgesic effect of pulsed magnetic fields.
Pulsed magnet therapy is therefore a suitable additional treatment for osteoarthritis of the knee due to its more pronounced analgesic effects, which contribute more to the physical health of the patient.
