Characteristics of Shingles or herpes zoster: Shingles (herpes zoster) is an infectious disease which is caused by the varicella-zoster virus, a virus from the herpes virus group. Infection occurs in two stages. Primary infection is typical for childhood and is known as chickenpox. This disease occurs only once during a person’s lifetime. During the primary infection, the virus travels along the sensory nerve from the skin to the respective ganglion, where it remains in a latent phase. Replication (multiplication) of this virus is suppressed by cellular and humoral immunity. The second phase of shingles occurs upon failure of the immune system (in particular, of cellular immunity) which may cause reactivation of the virus.

The virus travels along the nerve to the skin, which is accompanied by an eruption of vesicles in a certain dermatome, and the development of shingles. Such a condition can occur as a result of old age, stress, trauma, cytostatic or immunosuppressive therapy, cancer, immune deficiency or after irradiation. Under normal circumstances, such reactivation occurs only once in a person’s lifetime. Recurrences of the herpes zoster virus are rare, but if they occur, they can suggest the possibility of cancer or AIDS. The typical localisation of shingles are areas along the intercostal nerves in the chest, and some parts of the face around the first branch of the trigeminal nerve.

The risk of complications with shingles is increased in people who have not had chickenpox and may have been infected with the varicella zoster virus for the first time, as well as in pregnant women, where contact with an individual suffering from shingles can endanger the foetus. The most serious complication of shingles (herpes zoster) is postherpetic neuralgia. Therapy should include antiviral drugs, anti-inflammatory ointments, vitamins and analgesics. Vaccines are successful in particular against severe courses of the disease.

Using magnetic therapy in shingles

Overall strengthening of immunity is an effective prevention of shingles. Biomag low-frequency pulsed magnetic therapy can be used as part of the treatment, as it reduces pain, accelerates healing and regeneration, and provides overall stimulation of the immune system.

Application of magnetic therapy in shingles

In shingles, magnetic therapy can be applied daily at analgesic frequencies of 4-6 Hz in the acute phase, and at stimulating frequencies of 50-81 Hz during the recovery period. Treatment should be applied to the painful areas at the site of the eruption, and via a flat applicator to the respective area of the spinal column.

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).

Bělohrad Peat Spa – Lázně Bělohrad

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

We regularly visit the necessary doctors and in the meantime, we turn on the Biomag, which we can rely on to help speed up healing and relieve pain.

Ladislav a Marie Kubovi, Praha

We are satisfied with Biomag as shown by the fact that is used daily. I highly recommend the device to everyone because the sooner you use it in the ongoing health problems, the easier it will be to ease or eliminate these problems.
