Degenerative diseases of the brain and spinal cord
Characteristics of degenerative diseases of the brain and spinal cord: Degenerative CNS diseases include a wide range of diseases manifested by damage and death of neurons where no inflammatory, toxic or metabolic aetiology can be demonstrated.
These include: degenerative diseases affecting mainly the cerebral cortex (Alzheimer's disease, Pick's disease), degenerative diseases affecting mainly the extrapyramidal system (Huntington's disease, Parkinson's disease and syndrome), degenerative diseases of the cerebellum, and degenerative diseases of the spinal cord (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, hereditary spinocerebellar ataxia, chronic anterior polyomyelitis in adults, hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy, juvenile spinal muscular atrophy). In degenerative diseases of the brain and spinal cord, frequent familiar occurrence and the involvement of one or more functional and morphological systems have been observed.
Using magnetic therapy in degenerative diseases of the brain and spinal cord
Rehabilitation is used as an adjunctive therapy in degenerative diseases of the brain and spinal cord, including low-frequency pulsed magnetic therapy, which improves the oxygen and nutrient supply to the central nervous system due to its vasodilatory and anti-inflammatory effects, helps slow down the disease progression and stabilises health. Higher stimulatory frequencies leads to direct stimulation of the neural activity.
Application of magnetic therapy in degenerative diseases of the brain and spinal cord
Daily application programs are recommended using the frequency ranges 2-25 Hz and 50-81 Hz, which have vasodilatory and stimulation effects. A suitable solenoid should be used on the head, and a flat applicator on the spinal column.
