Treatment of damaged bones with pulsed magnetic therapy dates back to the mid-20th century, but the specific therapeutic effects have not been fully explained. The research team (Yang Wei et al., 2008) therefore focused on mechanisms of cells (MC3T3–E1) which affect the formation and development of bone (osteogenesis).
This research came with important revelation about osteoblasts – cells that work in groups to form bone.
The results showed that the maturity of the cells plays important role in the effectiveness of pulsed magnetic therapy. Simply put, low-frequency pulsed magnetic field initially accelerates reproduction of primary osteoblasts (proliferation). Only after their maturation it further promotes cell differentiation into bone cells.
In other words, low-frequency pulsed magnetic therapy not only helps to heal bones, but it also promotes the entire process of ossification.
