Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy

pulsed electromagnetic field therapy for pain

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy is based on the scientific fact that the human body is powered by electrochemical processes essential for cellular operations. PEMF treatment re-energizes and restores health to cells damaged by systemic inflammation with specialized energy that imparts healing electrical changes within cells. Boosting cellular metabolism using PEMF actually regenerates cells so that a cell's oxygen-carrying ability increases significantly to effect positive changes to the immune, nervous, circulatory and musculoskeletal system. In addition, one of the primary benefit of PEMF is its power to reduce a variety of chronic pain conditions, including arthritis, bursitis, fibromyalgia and migraine.

Delivering a succession of pulsating magnetic frequencies to the body, the PEMF device initiates a dynamic interaction between cellular functioning and the therapeutic energy penetrating cells to increase production of ATP (a type of chemical "food" for cells), facilitate toxin elimination and normalize membrane potentials. During a PEMF session, clients lie on a comfortable table while their doctor moves the PEMF device over their body. Many people undergoing PEMF therapy enter such a deeply restful state they may sleep during the latter half of the treatment.

Health benefits enjoyed by people treated with PEMF include decreased pain caused by accidents, sports injuries or disease, better range of motion and even reduced anxiety and depression. PEMF is especially useful for people recovering from surgery due to its ability to inhibit post-operation muscle loss, promote capillary formation and accelerate wound healing.

Who Should Consider PEMF Therapy?

Our chiropractor recommends PEMF therapy if you suffer from one or more of the following:

  • Bone fractures
  • Torn tendons
  • Inflammatory diseases that damage joints and soft tissues
  • Swelling (edema)
  • Circulatory problems (PEMF opens and dilates capillaries and arteries)
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Sluggish metabolism
  • Hypertension or low blood pressure (relaxes and expands blood vessels by stimulating release of nitric oxide)
  • Osteoporosis (may promote an increase in bone density)
  • Sleep disorders
  • Women who are pregnant and people with pacemakers or epilepsy are not eligible for PEMF therapy.

Improve Athletic Performance with PEMF Therapy

Research into the benefits of PEMF have found that muscles work longer yet recover more rapidly when regularly exposed to PEMF. If you are a competitive athlete, PEMF may help improve training results by decreasing the need for rest periods, For people who exercise several times a week, PEMF therapy could reduce soreness following physical activity. Because PEMF stimulates myosin phosphorylation, a process involving energy production within muscles, athletes, dedicated exercisers and just about anyone else can experience greater flexibility through enhanced electrolyte and ion activity combined with increased cellular energy.
