MFT in Veterinary Medicine - a Contribution by Klaus Voshegge

Research with animals is particularly informative and meaningful since animals as patients are not subject to the placebo effect. Although the most modern devices are used it is particularly important to ensure that specific factors are considered in the application of magnetic field therapy that could have a positive as well as a negative impact on the treatment.

The goal of treatment with MFT is attaining optimal success in healing. This is achieved by combining it with other treatment methods. These could be the classical school of medicine (eg. drugs) phytotherapeutic or rather homeopathic preparations (calendula-hamamelis, echinacea-pur-purea-ointment) and treatment with medical machinery eg. laser therapy.

Comparison with laser therapy is favourable in that MFT can penetrate deeper layers (like the musculature, bones) and not just on the skin. A further advantage of MFT is the fact that treatment is effective through bandages and dressings (eg. gypsum seal). Looking at all the factors it is clear that outstanding results can be achieved in the veterinary application of pulsed ELF magnetic fields.

The following therapeutic possibilities of MFT have emerged in veterinary practice:
- wound healing
- oedemas
- haematomas
- gangrene
- strains
- metabolic disorders
- broken bones (fracture`es)
- burns
- tendon injuries
- joint inflammations (arthritis)
- joint wear (arthrosis)

There is no doubt that the field intensities and frequencies used in human medicine can be similarly employed in veterinary medicine. The means by which MFT is applied in human medicine (whole body coil mat, coil cushion, magnetic field wand) lend themselves to treatment without restriction of animals of differing size.

Treatment of Horses in Sport
Horses are extremely sensitive animals that require careful handling. It is advisable, therefore, as with humans, to introduce MFT cautiously. The sensitivity of the horses to a suitable magnetic field therapy acupuncture means excellent results can be achieved without medicines.

The following areas apply particularly to horses:

- pulling/contusions
- tendon inflammations (acute and chronic)
- distortion
- confusion
- Sudeck's Disease
- stained muscles
- ankle injury
- arthritis
- arthrosis
- tendon tears
- flesh wounds
- fissures

Horses frequently exhibit strains in the musculature of their backs. Apart from manipulation therapy and physical handling, outstanding treatment success is obtained with the application of pulsating ELF magnetic fields. This procedure has proved useful in horse racing for avoiding strains. So putting the horses through the treatment shortly before a race works as the "secret ingredient" in ensuring they face the battle totally relaxed and are in a position to recover quickly from it.

PLEASE CONSIDER THE POSSIBILITY OF CONTRAINDICATIONS IN THE APPLICATION OF MFT IN VETERINARY MEDICINE. ABOVE ALL YOUNG, PREGNANT ANIMALS MUST BE EXCLUDED FROM THE TREATMENT!!
