What is the Magnetolith?

The Magnetolith is a non-invasive, ambulant therapy which uses a high frequency magnetic field (100 – 300mHz) to provide relief from a wide-range of muscular complaints including lower back pain and tendinopathies of the rotator cuff or achilles tendon. An innovative therapeutic method for treating disorders of the musculoskeletal system Extracorporeal Magnetotransduction Therapy (EMTT®) is a non-invasive treatment solution that has been specially developed for treating musculoskeletal pain. Treatment is hands free, quick and does not require the patient to be undressed.

How does the Magnetolith Work?

The EMITT Magnetolith works by placing the therapy loop over the area which requires treatment. High frequency magnetic impulses are then transmitted directly into the affected area. The high level of oscillation used by the Magnetolith (between 100 – 300kHZ) allows penetration of up to 18cm allowing your osteopath to reach areas which may not be accessible to other osteopathic therapies. EMTT treatment can have a positive chemical reaction in pathologically altered cells, allowing the cell metabolism to be reactivated and the normalisation or resetting of natural psychological processes.

When carried out by a qualified therapist who is experienced in the use of EMTT, treatment is quick and simple and can significantly reduce the pain and stiffness. Many patients report a significant improvement in their symptoms after just a few sessions although usually between 6 and 8 treatments are required although this will vary depending upon the patients ailment and the severity of their condition.
