Characteristics of the Rheumatism – progressive polyarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis program: The most common rheumatic diseases affecting the joints are rheumatoid arthritis, (rheumatism), Bechterew’s disease and psoriatic arthritis. The exact cause of rheumatoid arthritis is not known, but the main damaging mechanism is non-infectious chronic joint inflammation, an autoimmune process where the immune system attacks and destroys its own tissues. It is manifested by swelling, heat, tenderness, soreness and impaired function. After some time, inflammation leads to destruction and deformation of the joint, i.e. progressive polyarthritis –rheumatism.
Rheumatism (progressive polyarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis) is a systemic chronic inflammatory disease of the connective tissues, which is characterised by inflammation of the joint structures, the formation of granulation tissue, devastation of the articular cartilage, and ligament loosening, or scarring. In severe cases of rheumatism, pathological changes in other organs may also occur. Middle-aged women are the group most frequently affected by rheumatism. Rheumatism is manifested by pain, the feeling of morning stiffness and swelling of the small joints of the hands and/or other joints in the body. The small joints of the hand, wrist and ankle joints, as well as hip and knee joints are the joints that are most frequently affected by inflammation in rheumatism.
In ankylosing spondylitis (Bechterew’s disease), it is a chronic inflammatory disease, mainly affecting the SI joint and intervertebral joints, resulting in gradual stiffening up to ankylosis of the spine.
From the therapeutical point of view, in rheumatism, the most important treatment measures are modification of the environment and lifestyle, rehabilitation, spa treatment and the administration of anti-inflammatory and analgesic drugs.
Using magnetic therapy in rheumatism (progressive polyarthritis)
Progressive polyarthritis (rheumatism) is one of the main indications for Biomag low-frequency pulsed magnetic therapy. The therapy is beneficial due to its analgesic, anti-swelling, anti-inflammatory and healing effects. Magnetic therapy helps improve mobility, slows down further damage to the joints in chronic patients and provides overall pain relief.
Application of magnetic therapy in rheumatism (progressive polyarthritis)
In progressive polyarthritis (rheumatism), initially, we should preferably reduce pain using low frequencies from 4-6 Hz and once pain relief is achieved, treatment should be combined with regeneration programs at 25-50 Hz. A suitable type of applicator should be selected according to the affected location. Most frequently, we use a solenoid on small joints and a large flat or bedside applicator on the spine.
