In light of Project Wikify (:p) Is there any "See alsos" people can think of? Obviously there's plenty of alt medicine but any very similar? I'm thinking crystal healing etc. ArmondikoVgnostic 08:23, 17 February 2009 (EST)

AC field therapy[edit]

Other real medical application is therapy with time variable magnetic field, witch is used to adjuvant therapy of some chornic musculosceletal disorders. Supposed but never well-established effect of this therapy can be explain by eddy current witch is induced in tissue and warms tissue. Problematic is this that magnetic flux and time-derivation of magnetic flux in tissue is usually too small. Despite of this is this form of magnetotherapy widely used in most countries.

Don't worry about the English, that can be corrected. I'm just going to move this here while I read up on AC Field Therapy. Scarlet A.pngtheist 17:12, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

Just added a bit about diathermy. Microwaves, besides being electromagnetic waves, are sometimes generated by magnetrons which include chunky permanent magnets. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 18:50, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

Another form of therapy[edit]

I don't know how this stuff is called in English, but there's a class of magnetotherapeutic devices that actually use a bunch of coils to generate pulsating fields of varying frequency and intensity. No claims of being a panacea, but they do help with some conditions, for instance, my backpain subsides after a couple of procedures.--Arisano (talk) 21:32, 24 July 2022 (UTC)
