Varicose Ulcer - Description and treatment

Do you suffer from chronic venous insufficiency? Pay close attention to microvarices on your legs. They can progress and change into varicose veins accompanied by changes to pigmentation. Even minor injuries to the skin can lead to varicose ulcer. The newly emerged injury often serves as an entry way to infection. This can seriously complicate your health.

Warning:Do not use this or any other article on the internet to diagnose yourself. Only physicians can correctly diagnose patients. Do not postpone seeing your physician to resolve your health issues in time.

Characteristics of Varicose Ulcer and its causes

Varicose Ulcers are a serious condition, which require immediate intervention. A varicose ulcer is a condition where skin on the shin is chronically damaged. The shin is the area on the front of the lower leg between the knee and ankle.  

A varicose ulcer is a complication with chronic venous insufficiency, where the mechanism of venous return is disrupted. This leads to a serious decrease of oxygenated blood circulation in the limbs, and also insufficient levels of oxygen and nutrients required for proper tissue function.

Are you in danger of suffering from varicose ulcer too?

Causes can be found in lifestyle. People with sedentary jobs, or who lack in exercise, obese people, smokers and women using contraceptive pills are all in danger.

Varicose ulcers can form based on varices, hypertension, diabetes, gout, atherosclerosis and other system diseases.

Are you endangered based on your weight?

Calculate your BMI. BMI can be calculated easily by putting your figures into the formula: weight in kilograms / (height in metres x height in metres). If your resulting number is above 30, start taking preventative measures.

Varicose Ulcer treatment – rid yourself of the pain

Treatment of varicose ulcer is based on preventing its formation, especially by improving blood perfusion, eliminating infection and encourage healing of tissue.

Treatment may include:

  • medicaments (to improve vascular walls, vasodilation and anti-aggregant treatment,
  • surgery (standard operation or mini-invasive procedure).

What helps against varicose ulcer?

Defects are treated locally, utilising wound-healing methods, which includes moist wound-healing and physical treatment methods.

Regular physical activity with the goal to improve micro-circulation, supply of oxygenated blood and nutrients into the hypodermis, muscles and other tissues are important.

  • Varices of lower limbs – varicose veins.
  • Hypertension – high blood pressure.
  • Venous return – return of blood from capillaries through veins back to the heart, the amount of blood flowing to the heart in a time unit.

Within the rehabilitation treatment, low-frequency pulsed magnetic therapy has its place in treating some symptoms of varicose ulcers as it utilises the vasodilating, analgesic and healing effects with the support of anti-inflammatory effect.

It does not affect dilation of medium and large arteries but significantly improves microcirculation of oxygenated blood in the affected areas of the limb through the vasodilating effect targeting capillaries and pre-capillaries. It rejuvenates the limb at all depths, supresses inflammatory processes and pain, accelerates healing of damaged tissue and helps bring general relief.

Home applications are a huge convenience which allows the patient to continue intensive rehabilitation at home, out of hospital facilities.

The possibility of a secondary, long-term preventative and maintenance treatment from the first signs of the disease is a benefit, along with long-term daily applications with the goal of bringing relief and maintaining acceptable health for the patient.

Patented 3D Biomag pulsed therapy. How does it work?

The basic principle of 3D Biomag magnetic therapy is generating electromagnetic pulses. The generated pulses can penetrate through layers of clothing and even body tissues to the place of application. These pulses have specially developed biotropic parameters (e.g. frequency, profile, intensity), thanks to which the pulsed magnetotherapy affects various health conditions.

The term pulse magnetic therapy is most commonly used for physiotherapy using the principle of electromagnetic pulses. The abbreviation PEMF is used in order to be concise.

Patented 3D Biomag technology ensures more precise and uninterrupted pulse profiles, enhances output, and allows pulses to come from various angles.

Pulsed magnetic therapy is not meant to treat varicose ulcer itself. Such treatment can only be recommended by a physician. Magnetic therapy application is used on symptoms of varicose ulcers, such as pain, reduced blood perfusion and inflammation.

Important information

Carefully read the user guide provided by the producer and consult a physician about your health before using any medical device.

Biomag® Lumina 3D-e is an active therapeutic device – a medical device for individual use or in combination with other medical treatment and devices as a supplemental therapy within a comprehensive treatment plan.

The goal of Biomag® low frequency pulsed magnetic field therapy is to utilise its biological effects on tissue in a way that helps mitigate some symptoms. These symptoms are primarily pain, swelling, spasms, and changes in microcirculation. It also promotes healing and mitigates those symptoms that can be influenced by these effects.

Physiological changes in tissue after application of Biomag® magnetic therapy occur due to pain mitigation and vasodilation of capillaries and precapillaries, which leads to the following treatment effects:

  • pain-relieving – analgesic, reduces pain
  • healing – promoting regeneration, anti-inflammatory
    and anti-rheumatic effects
  • anti-swelling – reduces swelling (oedema)
    myorelaxing – relaxes muscles
  • vasodilating – improves microcirculation in particular
  • metabolic-detoxifying – accelerates the elimination
    of toxins and metabolites

Intended for use on intact skin through a protective layer, e.g., disposable or other sanitary pads.

When using the Biomag® Lumina 3D-e device it is necessary to follow the Principles of safety operation together with Contraindications/Indications and use it in compliance with the specified environmental requirements. Basic safety information is shown on the device display as well.

Devices and applicators of Biomag pulsed magnetic therapy are not to be used with any of the following contraindications. Not respecting these contraindications can lead to damaged health of the patient and the device operator!

If you own the AL16-LUM polarised light applicator, further contraindications are:

  • Shining directly in one’s eyes (applicable in case of applying polarised light)
  • With metabolic disorders, where skin becomes photosensitive and while using photostimulating substances (applicable in case of applying polarised light)

Side effects:
While applying treatment, special caution should be paid to patients with hypertension and        hypotension (or with predisposition to it).
Individual effects and using magnetic therapy need to be judged upon particular conditions and reactions of individual patients.

In case of unexpected reaction, immediately cease application! Proceeding with application is recommended only after seeing your attending physician based on the recommended course of action.
