Have you undergone surgery or experienced traumatic injury? Have you been released from hospital and await intensive recovery? Would you like for the healing process to run quickly and without complications? Learn about the methods that can be used post-surgery.
Warning:Do not use this or any other article on the internet to diagnose yourself. Only physicians can correctly diagnose patients. Do not postpone seeing your physician to resolve your health issues in time.
Characteristics of Post-surgery Conditions and its Causes
Surgery is an invasive intervention in a patient’s body. It is performed by a surgeon. The reason for surgery varies from an injury, aesthetic surgery or other reasons. The condition post-surgery is affected by both the success of the surgery itself and by post-operative care.
The most essential step in post-operative care is to rest as instructed by the attending physician. Proper incision care is also important in the form of regular re-dressing and maintaining good hygiene.
Rehabilitation follows, and aims to reach these goals:
improve mobility and activate muscles,
acceleration of healing,
prevention of thromboembolism and other post-operative complications.
Post-traumatic and post-operative rehabilitation treat the consequences of trauma to the musculoskeletal apparatus and after orthopaedic, surgical and neurological operations in a natural way.
Active participation of the patient is essential. Rehabilitation uses a wide range of methods which are either combined or used gradually and changed depending on the development of the patient’s condition. From exercises, through physical therapy in the form of massages, bath, electric therapy, magnetic field and polarised light.
Post-surgery Conditions Treatment – Rid yourself of the Issue
The rehabilitation method is chosen based on the type of operation. It is necessary to follow the instructions of the attending physician or physiotherapist.
In a lot of cases, the patient can apply for balneotherapy (spa therapy). Sometimes the patient may transfer straight from the hospital.
Healthy diet may contribute to shortening the convalescence period. Eating food rich in fibre, protein and vitamins helps considerably. Food supplements may be used, but along with the diet it should be consulted with the attending physician.
Laparoscopy – a minimally invasive diagnostic and treatment method used in for the abdominal cavity without the need for surgical incision means smaller wounds and less pain for the patient.
Amputation – removal of a peripheral part of body either surgically or by accident.
Prosthesis – artificial limb.
Electrotherapeutic rehabilitation methods and rehabilitation methods are utilised as a part of post-surgery treatment.
Within the rehabilitation treatment of some symptoms of post-surgery condition, low-frequency pulsed magnetic therapy has its place in accelerating healing. It utilises the analgesic, vasodilating, metabolic, anti-swelling and healing effects with the support of the anti-inflammatory effect.
Home applications are a huge convenience which allows the patient to continue intensive rehabilitation at home, out of hospital facilities.
Patented 3D Biomag pulsed therapy. How does it work?
The basic principle of 3D Biomag magnetic therapy is generating electromagnetic pulses. The generated pulses can penetrate through layers of clothing and even body tissues to the place of application. These pulses have specially developed biotropic parameters (e.g. frequency, profile, intensity), thanks to which the pulsed magnetotherapy affects various health conditions.
The term pulse magnetic therapy is most commonly used for physiotherapy using the principle of electromagnetic pulses. The abbreviation PEMF is used in order to be concise.
Patented 3D Biomag technology ensures more precise and uninterrupted pulse profiles, enhances output, and allows pulses to come from various angles.
Pulsed magnetic therapy is not meant to treat post-surgery condition itself. Such treatment can only be recommended by a physician. Magnetic therapy application is used on symptoms of post-surgery treatment such as pain, swelling and inflammation.
Carefully read the user guide provided by the producer and consult a physician about your health before using any medical device.
Biomag® Lumina 3D-e is an active therapeutic device – a medical device for individual use or in combination with other medical treatment and devices as a supplemental therapy within a comprehensive treatment plan.
The goal of Biomag® low frequency pulsed magnetic field therapy is to utilise its biological effects on tissue in a way that helps mitigate some symptoms. These symptoms are primarily pain, swelling, spasms, and changes in microcirculation. It also promotes healing and mitigates those symptoms that can be influenced by these effects.
Physiological changes in tissue after application of Biomag® magnetic therapy occur due to pain mitigation and vasodilation of capillaries and precapillaries, which leads to the following treatment effects:
pain-relieving – analgesic, reduces pain
healing – promoting regeneration, anti-inflammatory
and anti-rheumatic effects
vasodilating – improves microcirculation in particular
metabolic-detoxifying – accelerates the elimination
of toxins and metabolites
Intended for use on intact skin through a protective layer, e.g., disposable or other sanitary pads.
When using the Biomag® Lumina 3D-e device it is necessary to follow the Principles of safety operation together with Contraindications/Indications and use it in compliance with the specified environmental requirements. Basic safety information is shown on the device display as well.
Devices and applicators of Biomag pulsed magnetic therapy are not to be used with any of the following contraindications. Not respecting these contraindications can lead to damaged health of the patient and the device operator!
If unsure whether you understand the following list of contraindications and guidelines of safe operation of the device, use these contacts. You may prevent possible issues.
Mycosis in the application area
Adrenal gland hyperfunction
Disorders of the hypothalamus and pituitary gland
Pain of unknown origin
Contradiction to treatment recommended by a physician
If you own the AL16-LUMpolarised light applicator, further contraindications are:
Shining directly in one’s eyes (applicable in case of applying polarised light)
With metabolic disorders, where skin becomes photosensitive and while using photostimulating substances (applicable in case of applying polarised light)
Side effects: While applying treatment, special caution should be paid to patients with hypertension and hypotension (or with predisposition to it). Individual effects and using magnetic therapy need to be judged upon particular conditions and reactions of individual patients.
In case of unexpected reaction, immediately cease application! Proceeding with application is recommended only after seeing your attending physician based on the recommended course of action.
This list of contraindications is only general. Always heed list of contraindications in the updated version of the original guide. This guide was provided to you by the producer along with your device.
