Biomagnetic Research Protocol Sacroiliac Pain Reduction
by Lindsey Groem, CTB
Case History & Orientation: A 25 year old
woman presents with a 4 year history of left side sacroiliac (SI) pain occurring
once yearly. Past treatments include X-rays, injection of medication at site of
pain, neural tests, and prescription muscle relaxants and anti-inflammatory
medications. This method of treatment resulted in decreased pain but the side
affects of the medication forced her to sleep most of the day,
Treatment Goals: Decrease pain from level 5 to level 1 and to increase Range Of Motion to 'Within Normal Limits'.
Treatment Plan: Type of Magnet Used-Ceramic 4" x 6.5" Gauss internal 3,950 ( 280 surface gauss) & magnetic pad 12"x18" with small ceramic disks (approximate surface gauss 100)
Polarity- Negative only next to body
Techniques- Direct & stacking
Observations/Outcomes: Goals fully achieved. The initial 30-minute treatment decrease pain to level 2 /10 & client was able to stretch as needed. Her anxiety was less due to the immediate decrease in pain using the magnets. Within 4 days the problem was stopped. In comparison to other treatments Biomagnetic therapy was incredible. This could have potentially been another very distressful problem, which caused the client a lot of anxiety that she was going to have to experience another week of pain and missed work. In the future, if this problem arises again the client will without a doubt use Biomagnetic therapy as the first intervention.
magnet therapy is a natural alternative pain relief treatment for fibromyalgia, gout, arthritis, sciatica and many other chronic painful conditions.
