Palm Desert, CA (PRWEB) March 19, 2008
Noted in a recent article published in the Los Angeles Times, treating spine problems in the United States costs almost $86 billion a year, rivaling the economic burden of treating cancer. Accordingly, there is a much higher incidence of the use of prescription drugs, more advanced diagnostic studies and out patient visits, with a significant proportion of these patients leading to spinal fusion surgery. Yet, with all these methods, a high number of people actually feel their back pain is worse than before the treatments.
According to the article, Dr. Orly Avitzur, a neurologist from Tarrytown, NY stated that as far as back patients were concerned, "costs have gone up, but outcomes following surgery have not changed, which is really quite discouraging." There are also a number of recent reports showing that some people who decline surgery for back pain do just as well as those who have had the surgery.
Costs of medication therapy are rising, yet the percentage of successful results following surgery has not increased commensurate with the costs. Dr. Bakst, founder of patented magnetic therapy for all types of bodily pains feels it is time to investigate the use of their patented magnet back belt for the amelioration of back pain.
"We have found that the use of magnets for the control of back pain has been extremely successful, proven through clinical studies completed at Cal State University at Fullerton," explains Dr. Bakst. "Our research shows that in order for a nerve impulse to be perceived as pain, this impulse must travel up the spinal cord to the brain where it is perceived as pain. There is no such thing as pain if the impulse doesn't reach the brain."
Dr. Bakst continues his explanation about how magnetic therapy can help back pain sufferers. "It we can disrupt the flow of the nerve impulse from back to brain through magnetic therapy, one might be able to control the pain in that area. Our magnets achieve this feat because they are unipolar and are strong enough to have its field of action extend through the skin, muscle and bone to the nerve that is causing and carrying the back pain."
Studies completed at Cal State University at Fullerton have shown that magnetic therapy can effectuate relief over a period of time. For example, when using Dr. Bakst's magnets for four hours, there was a 40% amelioration of back pain. If the magnet back belt was used for 24 to 48 hours, approximately 60% had relief of their back pain. When the magnet back belt was used for a week, more than 80% of people using the product noted and reported a distinct improvement in their back pain.
Any individual or medical professional interested in learning more about these clinical studies or how Dr. Bakst's patented magnetic therapy products are a drug free way to relieve back pain are encouraged to contact the company directly or to browse their website for more information.
