Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy

What is PEMF and How Does it Work?

Spinal X-RayPEMF therapy uses bursts of low-level electromagnetic pulses to heal damaged tissues and bone, to relieve injury-related pain, and even to stimulate organs. The idea is that pulses at low frequencies will pass through the skin and penetrate deep into muscle, bones, tendons, and even organs to activate the cell’s energy and encourage its natural repair mechanisms. PEMF is catching on as a non-invasive way to approach injuries, chronic pain, and even chronic conditions like depression and diabetes.

Pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) are around you every day. Our body is electromagnetic; every signal our brain sends out to our bodies is through electromagnetic fields. PEMF devices, such as the one we will have at the office, allow you to get this electrical charge that your cells need. As the pulsing magnetic field pulses your cells, the cell membrane is gently pulled by the magnetic field. On the off phase of the pulse, the cell membrane is relaxed. As the cells expand and relax, the cell membrane becomes more permeable, and are better able to release any waste, toxins and inflammation and receive needed oxygen and nutrients. The intake of oxygen and releasing of waste is what increases the natural charge of the cell. As the cell reaches its natural charge, cells return to optimal health. PEMF delivers beneficial, health-enhancing frequencies to every cell, tissue, organ, and even bones to stimulate electrical and chemical processes in the tissues. It is designed to positively support cellular energy, which results in better cellular health and function.

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy is a technology that has been used internationally for several decades on both humans and animals for healing and improving health in a variety of cases. It has been the subject of extensive research that have acknowledged its safe and effective use. It is FDA approved for certain ailments and the research continues to grow. PEMF is beneficial for virtually every health issue because with regular use, it can help to provide the energy necessary to reestablish healthy cells.

Not all PEMF devices are created equally. Results will be achieved rapidly when using professional, clinical strength PEMF machines. PEMF devices vary in their frequency, waveform, strength and types of stimulators.

Pulse Center PEMF, offered at Holistic Healing & Chiropractic Center, offers the safest PEMF machines, strongest magnetic pulse, and most variability in frequencies to help treat disease and health issues.

You have no idea how much PEMF can help…until you try it!

PEMF Therapy is a way to recharge every cell in your body so your cells are better able to uptake nutrients, excrete waste, and function optimally. The number one sign that your cells need energy support is pain. Pain and fatigue are your body’s cry for help — it’s how your body gets your attention. Other signs include dis-ease, weakness, reduced function of any body part, and emotional imbalances.

Your body benefits from coming into direct contact with the earth’s magnetic field — it’s one of the reasons people love walking on the beach so much. The ocean’s salt water is an excellent conductor of energy that increases the transfer of energy from earth to body.

The earth’s electromagnetic field (EMF) is safe and beneficial. However, modern technology like mobile phones, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, computer screens, and high-tension wires produce an EMF at an extreme level that bombards every cell in your body with detrimental energy.

Each cell in your body is like a battery, capable of holding only so much energy. Think of your cells like a mobile phone — over time they lose their charge and need to be recharged to function. There are various reasons your cells may not be generating or maintaining enough charge: physical injury, toxicity, scar tissue, inflammation, and poor nutrition are just some things that suck the life out of your cellular batteries.

The FDA started approving PEMF back in 1979 for bone loss (it was even used by NASA to support the astronauts when they returned to Earth). The FDA made additional approvals in 1987 for post-operative edema and pain, 2004 as an adjunct to cervical fusion surgery, and 2011 for depression.

Since every cell in your body needs to hold a charge, every cell in your body can benefit from PEMF.

What Does PEMF Do?

  • PEMF reduces Pain and Inflammation
  • PEMF improves energy and circulation (both blood and lymph)
  • PEMF improves sleep quality
  • PEMF helps balance the immune system
  • PEMF accelerates repair of bone and soft tissue
  • PEMF helps relax muscles
  • PEMF helps relieve symptoms of Depression
  • PEMF has many other applications to treat acute or chronic ailments

What is PEMF Treatment Like?

One of the biggest upsides to PEMF for pain relief or treatment of chronic health issues is that it can pass through skin, fur, bone, muscle, casts, and virtually anything else. The session is generally relaxing, as it involves little to no movements or physical activity. All one needs to do is sit on a mat that has the PEMF system connected to it. Most individuals go to sleep or relax during the 30-90-minute-long session and wake up to a feeling of relaxation with any previous pain gone. Usually, an area of discomfort or previous injury will be found by the magnetic field on the very first session. It is, however, important to note that your condition and the specific circumstances surrounding it will highly determine how you feel during and after a session. It is also recommended to try 3-5 treatments before deciding if your health issues have benefited from the treatment. However, most people do feel something after the first treatment or two.

What is PEMF for Pain Management?

The PEMF energy waves can change the way your body copes with pain. PEMF reduces pain associated with trauma, disease, and degeneration. PEMF is a safe non-invasive alternative to medications or procedures that produce short-term results. PEMF does not require drugs, has no side effects or risks. PEMF works very fast and very well, and applies easily to various parts of the body. PEMF helps reduce chronic and damaging inflammation that results in pain. PEMF enhances the body’s ability to heal itself – the electromagnetic pulses of energy penetrate the body at the cellular level. Your body then uses that energy to heal itself through its natural healing mechanisms. PEMF stimulates, recharges, and rejuvenates cells at the cellular level.

Benefits of PEMF Therapy

PEMF Helps Boost the Immune System

PEMF gives the cells in the body greater levels of energy. This gives them the potential to fight infections effectively. PEMF increases the oxygen available to each cell. This helps accelerate recovery time.

PEMF Helps Repair Bones

PEMF therapy is FDA approved to promote healing on non-healing bone unions. Ligaments, bone, and cartilage respond to PEMF treatments. PEMF passes through the body, including the bones. PEMF can help regenerate bone loss from osteoporosis and osteopenia.

PEMF Improves Muscle Function

PEMF properly charges cells in our muscles to work harder and longer. Muscles contract and relax and recover better from tension and spasms with PEMF.

PEMF Safety and Contraindications

  • Anyone with implanted electrical devices including pacemakers, cochlear implants, intrathecal pumps, etc., cannot use PEMF because the magnetic field can disable or shut the devices off.
  • Persons with active bleeding or hemorrhaging conditions cannot use PEMF.
  • PEMFs have not been proven safe for pregnant women.
  • People with organ transplants on immunosuppression should not use PEMF.
