Characteristics of blood circulation disorders in the upper extremities: Upper extremity ischaemia is a disease of the arteries in the upper extremities, leading to ischaemia. It is much less common than similar blood circulation disorders in the lower extremities (lower extremity ischaemia). The proximal type of upper extremity ischaemia is most frequently caused by atherosclerosis. The distal type (Raynaud's phenomenon, local vasoneurosis) is a much more common type of upper extremity ischaemia. Other symptoms of upper extremity ischaemia - i.e. of poor perfusion, are vascular spasms, which are caused by a disorder of the shoulder girdle, peripheral vessel diseases, and other conditions where blood circulation disorders of the upper extremities may indicate other serious conditions.
Using magnetic therapy in blood circulation disorders in the upper extremities (upper extremity ischaemia)
In upper extremity ischaemia, Biomag low-frequency pulsed magnetic therapy complements comprehensive treatment due to its significant vasodilatory effects on the pre-capillary arterioles and capillaries; it improves the microcirculation of oxygenated blood and nutrients in the treated tissue and creates better local metabolic conditions.
Application of magnetic therapy in blood circulation disorders in the upper extremities (upper extremity ischaemia)
In upper extremity ischaemia, it is recommended to apply spasmolytic and vasodilatory programs at a range of 2-25 and if needed, a combination with 10-50 Hz treatment is recommended on the affected area around the shoulder girdle using a special shoulder applicator, flat applicator.
