Promoting healing of long bone fractures with low-frequency pulsed magnet therapy was validated on 58 patients and the research team (Hong-fei et al., 2013) published their results in the scientific journal BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders.
As non-healing fractures and fractures with prolonged healing are still a major problem in long bones, this randomised, placebo-controlled trial aimed to try to improve the treatment system for these fractures.
All patients who suffered from 16-week to 6-month prolonged healing of a long bone fracture were randomly divided into an active and a control group. Patients in the active group underwent low-frequency pulsed magnetotherapy applications and patients in the control group were exposed to zero applications using a simulated magnetotherapy device. Both groups began the daily eight-hour application at the same time.
According to the results , treatment with low-frequency pulsed magnet therapy achieved a success rate of 77.4%. In contrast, in the control group, the success rate of fracture healing was only 48.1%.
The pulsed magnetic field also resulted in a higher rate of fracture growth. It was also observed that if pulsed magnet therapy is applied earlier after a bone fracture, the healing time tends to be shorter, confirming that this treatment promotes fracture healing.
