Continuing from the previous post on Magnetic Therapy For Sciatic Pain Relief, this post discusses some more scientific research data supporting the effectiveness of magnetic therapy treatment.
In 1992, Foley-Nolan used pulsed magnetic therapy fields in treatment of acute whiplash syndrome in a randomized double blinded controlled study.
Acute whiplash affects the muscles below the chin and above the sternum when an accident causes a person to be struck from behind and the head is thrown forward and then pulled back due to the impact. Whiplash can occur due to a variety of reasons, the most common being involved in a motor vehicle accident.
Twenty patients wore active pulsed magnetic therapy collars and twenty others wore placebo collars for 8 hours per day. The group wearing active collars showed statistically significant improved visual analogue at 2 and 4 weeks in comparison with the placebo group.
In another statistically significant study in 1998, Pujo selected a group of 30 patients and treated them at random with real or false magnetic current coil stimulation over body areas that were tender.
Those treated with real stimulation reported a decrease of post procedure pain by 59% while only 14% did so from the false treatment group.
Magnetic Therapy Research On Sciatic Nerve
This study using pulsed magnetic therapy fields was conducted on rats with experimentally severed sciatic nerves to increase their peripheral nerve regeneration.

Another controlled study subjected rats to daily 15 minute dose of pulsed magnetic therapy and found that it speeded up their nerve regeneration which were injured in the first place for experimental purposes.
