HECHAVARRIA SANCHEZ, Mario; GAY MUGUERCIA, Mercedes; HERNANDEZ ACOSTA, César  y  BERGUES CABRALES, Luis Enrique. Effectiveness of the multipolar permanent magnets in the treatment of chronic pain in patients with generalized osteoarthrosis. MEDISAN [online]. 2013, vol.17, n.11, pp.8070-8079. ISSN 1029-3019.

A longitudinal and controlled study of 100 patients with generalized osteoarthrosis, assisted in the Service of Natural and Traditional Medicine of "Saturnino Lora Torres" Clinical Surgical Teaching Provincial Hospital in Santiago de Cuba was carried out from January to December, 2010, in order to evaluate the effectiveness of the multipolar permanent magnets in the treatment of the chronic pain in those affected. These magnets were placed and fixed in different acupuncture points to reduce pain. The pain levels were quantified by means of the Analogue Visual Scale, by sex and age range; they were evaluated at the 0, 30, 60 and 90 days during the therapy. The feasibility of the use of the multipolar permanent magnets was demonstrated in the relief of pain of the patients with generalized osteoarthrosis as they are simple, sure, effective and induce no adverse effects in the organism.
