What is Magnetic Resonance Therapy and Can it Help Me?

Most people know about magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), because doctors often use the technology to diagnose health problems. Magnetic resonance imaging can get detailed pictures of the inside of your body. What you may not know, however, is that this technology can help your body heal.

At Integrated Medical Solutions of Knoxville in Knoxville, Tennessee, our experienced health professionals provide magnetic resonance therapy to help patients heal damaged tissues. The therapy is gentle, painless, noninvasive, and doesn’t have any known side effects, which makes it a valuable tool for treating a variety of conditions, including broken bones, bulging discs, and back pain.

How magnetic resonance therapy works

Magnetic resonance therapy relies on the same technology that an MRI uses: radio waves and powerful magnets. When used for therapeutic purposes, magnetic resonance energy activates your body’s electromagnetic energy.

This electromagnetic energy originates in the nuclei of the hydrogen atoms inside your cells. Once activated, they stimulate the healing process on the cellular level and trigger cell regeneration. As new cells regenerate, your damaged tissues heal. And as your tissues heal, pain will decrease and functionality will increase.

The power of magnetic resonance therapy

Magnetic resonance therapy offers several benefits, including:

Safe for long-term use

Unlike many prescription medications used to manage pain, magnetic resonance therapy doesn’t pose any health risks. This makes it a safe and effective long-term pain management solution.

Can help you avoid surgery

In addition to treating injuries, magnetic resonance therapy can be used in the early stages of a disease to prevent additional damage. By preventing additional damage, you can reduce your chances of needing surgery in the future.

Proven, long-lasting results

Many people see improvement within a few days of having magnetic resonance therapy, but the best results typically occur within a few weeks or months as your tissues regenerate. You can expect these benefits to last for a year or longer.

The best candidates for magnetic resonance therapy

Our team uses magnetic resonance therapy to treat a wide range of conditions. It’s especially effective for degenerative joint conditions, such osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. Both of these diseases can lead to cartilage loss in your joints, which can cause pain and reduced mobility. Magnetic resonance therapy can treat these conditions in your hips, knees, hands, fingers, shoulders, elbows, feet, ankles, and spine. Magnetic resonance therapy can also treat:

Magnetic resonance therapy can also help men and women suffering from joint, bone, and tissue damage due to diabetes, thyroid disease, chronic inflammatory bowel disease, and kidney disease.
