Duration of application of magnets increases in chronic cases of Gout, Paralysis, Poliomyelitis, Rheumatism or Rheumatoid Arthritis, etc. The time of treatment can be gradually increased even up to half-an-hour daily or for 15-20 minutes twice a day.
The treatment with magnets should be carried out properly or it may not give good result. The application time should be for a particular duration for a particular ailment. Normally, the magnetic treatment should be given for about 10 minutes only once a day.
In the case of the treatments of children, however, the time may be reduced upto 5 minutes a day. It again depends upon the age of the child, the disease and the tenderness and the power of magnets. The magnetic treatment has no fixed course or time-limit. It should be continued till the disease is diminished fully. The disease can be cured in different periods in different cases, depending upon the nature and length of the disease, the age and strength of the patient and the power of magnets to be applied. The effect of the magnetic treatment can be noticed within a few days, in some cases or it may take duration of about two week and in some chronic cases, it may take a few months.
Generally, no irritation is felt in the magnetic treatment. However, if any pain seems to increase in the first instance in any case, it may be due to the fact that the magnet in the process of eliminating the pain draws it out from the internal parts of the body to the skin.
The increase in pain, if felt in any case, settles in a short duration and no separate treatment is considered necessary for reducing it.
