For a firm pelvic floor and strong sphincter muscle
Magnetic therapy is a non-invasive, effective approach to treating pelvic floor problems and should be considered for postural weakness (incontinence), decreasing muscle tone and sensitivity disorders.
This therapy, also called Extracorporeal Magnetic Innervation (ExMI), works with magnetic pulses that stimulate the nerve fibres in specific areas of the sacral nerve plexus. Studies showed a significant increase in resting and pinching pressure after treatment.
Advantages of magnetic field stimulation:
Magnetic field therapy is a non-invasive procedure based on the physical principle of electromagnetic induction. The magnetic field leads to the triggering of an action potential at the cell membrane. The stimulation takes place through short magnetic pulses that can penetrate tissue without causing pain.
The roots of the sacral nerves S2 to S4 supply the urinary tract, vagina and rectum as well as the muscular pelvic floor vegetatively and somatically.
When a motor nerve supplies a muscle, a tension (contraction) of the muscle is triggered. Strength and endurance of the sphincter and pelvic floor are trained by alternating between tension and relaxation.
When is magnetic field therapy useful?
Three muscle layers form the pelvic floor muscles. They lie on top of each other like a grid and support the organs that lie in the pelvis. In addition, they are of great importance for continence (ability to hold stool and urine).
The inner muscle layer is responsible for the movements of the pelvis, while the middle muscle layer consists mainly of the large perineal muscle. This ensures that the pressure on the basin is absorbed. In women, the perineum muscle is only half as strong as in men. In addition, pregnancy and childbirth are the causes that a significant weakening of the muscle can be observed in about a quarter of all women after menopause. The lowest muscle layer encloses the urethra and anus and, as the sphincter muscle, has the function of enabling rapid contractions.
The pelvic floor, which consists of striated muscles with their voluntary sphincters, and the smooth muscles in the wall of the hollow organs (urethra, vagina, rectum) are exposed to a wide variety of stresses in the course of life.
If the stretching of the muscles remains below a certain threshold, the muscle can compensate itself. More stretching leads to structural damage, reduction in strength and also impairment of the nerve supply. The American gynaecologist Arnold Henry Kegel from Hollywood explored the possibilities of actively training the muscles 70 years ago. As a result, pelvic floor therapy has established itself as an independent sub-area of physiotherapy.
It has proven effective to follow a step-by-step scheme for pelvic floor disorders:
For the treatment of anorectal incontinence, magnetic field therapy is a new procedure whose targeted application can produce good results.
