The aim of the current work was to analyze the influence of alternating magnetic field on the viscoelastic properties of blood in vivo in patients with lasting pain problems. Oscillatory techniques, also called the dynamic mechanical analysis, have been used in the current work to study the viscoelastic properties of blood. The blood samples were collected from patients of a neurological ward complaining about spinal cord and lower limbs pain. Altogether 25 patients took part in the study. A blood sample was collected from each patient twice: before the magnetostimulation and after five treatments. For each blood sample, the hematocrit value was measured using the standard method. Plasma viscosity and the complex whole blood viscosity were measured by means of a rotary-oscillating rheometer Contraves LS40. Magnetic field was generated by the instrument Viofor JPS and the magnetostimulation treatments were performed using different programs. The analysis of the results included estimation of the hematocrit value, plasma viscosity, complex whole blood viscosity and its components: viscous and elastic viscosity at four chosen amplitudes of the shear rate as a function of the applied treatment program. The results obtained in the study suggest that rheological properties of blood change depending on the applied magnetostimulation program.
