To scientists, the acronym PEMF stands for pulsed electromagnetic fields. To your body, PEMF functions at a cellular level, enhancing your body’s overall functioning. The process of receiving PEMF involves sending energy waves towards pained areas of the body. The waves pass through completely and increase the spin of the electrons. As a result, wellness levels are improved and the body may function more efficiently.

Aging and bodily dysfunction begin at the cellular level and, when left unchecked, results in countless unwanted and hard-to-treat symptoms.

PEMF is a relatively new push in the medical community, but it is already gaining a large popularity. The effects may not be seen right away, but the use of PEMF will help the body maintain proper functionality.  PEMF is safe to use and only requires 15-20 minutes of exposure at a time to receive the daily maximum benefits. Keeping sessions short will avoid overstimulating your cells and also preserve the quality of the internal coil system. Investigate PEMF and experience its wellness-restoring qualities for yourself.

    Temporary Relief of Muscle and Joint Pain

    Pain relief is one of the most important fields of medicine, yet most options for treatment of pain are ineffective or cause damaging side effects. PEMF therapy is an effective, safe alternative. It can be applicable to new injuries, surgical recovery, managing chronic issues, and promoting general wellness.  In 1993, a study conducted at the International Pain Research Institute concluded that brief exposure of affected areas to PEMF therapy resulted in significant pain reduction. In another study from 2007, 50 patients with chronic pain (about half with fibromyalgia) were treated with either PEMF or a sham device. They were treated with a headset that produces PEMF frequencies for a total of 4 weeks. By the end of the trial, the average recipient of actual PEMF therapy experienced about a 20% reduction in comparison to the sham group that only averaged a 4% reduction. (1, 2)

    Temporarily Increase Local Circulation Where Applied

    PEMF therapy promotes wellness by improving localized blood circulation where applied. Researchers at Wake Forest University found that PEMF stimulation can be applied locally to increase vasodilation in a particular area of the body, resulting in improved circulation to that area. Dilation of blood vessels means a decrease in blood pressure as well as a more relaxed state in which the body can transport blood to areas of the body. This promising finding indicates that PEMF can help patients recover more quickly from injuries. (3)

    PEMF Helps with Arthritis Pain and Stiffness

    Rheumatoid arthritis is one of the most common chronic inflammatory diseases worldwide. If you are one of the millions of people living with rheumatoid arthritis, you have likely struggled to find relief for the painful symptoms of joint swelling and inflammation. In a 1998 study published in the Journal of the Indian Medical Association, researchers determined that PEMF therapy can alleviate painful symptoms of RA. While seronegative RA patients had the best results, all patients experienced improvement, suggesting that PEMF therapy may be an essential new treatment for arthritis patients. (4)

    Helps the Relief of Symptoms of Depression

    Approximately 30% of patients with depression are resistant to antidepressant drugs.  If you are one of these patients, PEMF therapy may be an ideal choice. PEMF has no side effects, which can be one of the largest causes for concerns when it comes to antidepressants. Common antidepressant side effects include weight gain, insomnia, nausea, blurred vision, and many others.  Psychiatric researchers in Denmark determined that PEMF therapy, in combination with antidepressant use, caused significant improvement in treatment-resistant patients’ symptoms, with minimal-to-no side effects. The benefits of a noninvasive treatment for depression are incalculable. Many people with depression are turned off of medications offered by doctors because of negative experiences they have had with them. (5)

    Supplements the Reduction of Migraines

    If you suffer from chronic migraine headaches, you are well aware that the onset of a migraine can typically mean an unexpected end to your day.  PEMF therapy is an alternative approach for patients seeking a meaningful reduction in their migraines, both in frequency and pain management. In 1999, researchers in the United States investigated the effects of PEMF on migraines. After one month of regular PEMF therapy, all involved patients reported fewer and less severe headaches. These results suggest that PEMF has the potential to be a temporary short-term intervention for millions of migraine sufferers. Again, PEMF causes no harmful side effects and will not harm your brain in any way. If you have a concern regarding PEMF, you can always consult your healthcare professional first. (6)

    Supports Efforts to Stimulate Bone Recovery

    When a broken bone fails to heal within an expected timeframe, it is considered a “non-union.” Non-union fractures are serious medical complications that sometimes require risky orthopedic surgery. However, non-surgical intervention is possible with PEMF therapy. PEMF therapy has been shown to accelerate efforts to restore non-union fractures. In one 1999 study by the Bangladesh Medical Research Council, researchers applied PEMF stimulation to 13 long-term non-union fracture patients. Within 14 weeks, 11 out of those 13 patients experienced successful bone stimulation. (7)

    Helps Decrease Diabetic Factors

    If you are managing diabetes, you may experience diabetic polyneuropathy (DPN), a symptom characterized by sensations of weakness and numbness on both sides of the body. DPN can dramatically reduce your quality of life, but PEMF offers a chance for solace. A 2003 study from Neuroscience and Behavioral Physiology found that PEMF therapy relates to reduced DPN symptoms and nerve function. With PEMF treatment, diabetic patients can minimize the discomfort associated with DPN symptoms. (8)

    May Help Trigger Nerve Repair

    Research indicates that PEMF therapy can supply positive effect for nerve stimulation. In a 1993 study by the Bioelectromagnetics Society, researchers found that rats recovered more quickly from sciatic nerve injury when they were pre-treated with PEMF therapy. While the mechanism behind this effect remains unknown, these findings offer hope to patients coping with nerve damage or degeneration. (9)

    Further Efforts to Increase Range of Motion

    Cervical osteoarthritis causes a major reduction in the range of motion. Patients struggle to remain mobile and move around as they once did. Thanks to PEMF therapy, these patients will find renewed hope.  Research published in Clinical Rheumatology found that PEMF treatment assists with range of motion and reduced muscle spasms and neck pain in osteoarthritis patients. With PEMF treatment, you can take control of your body despite an osteoarthritis diagnosis. (10)
