Low-Intensity Magnetic Stimulation Helps Lower the Effects of Concussion

A recent study from the University of Saskatchewan, Canada, suggests that low-intensity magnetic stimulation can be used as an effective method of treatment for mild traumatic brain injuries, or concussion.Low-Intensity Magnetic Stimulation Helps Lower the Effects of Concussion

In the course of study, a team of researchers examined the influence of low-field magnetic stimulation (LFMS) on the brain of mice. Using a weight-drop technique, the team exposed each mouse to a traumatic brain injury (TBI) in the right hemisphere of the brain.

They repeated the injury once a day for 3 days. The researchers administered LFMS to the mice in the treatment group immediately after the TBIs which lasted 20 minutes a day for 4 days in a row.

As a result of the treatment, the rodents fully recovered from the injuries within 4 days of therapy. The recovery was confirmed by various cognitive and motor tests which included finding the way through the maze, running on a wheel without falling off, and walking in a straight line.
