PEMF For Pain

PEMF therapy for pain is applied using Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy machines that nourish the body with pulsating magnetic fields tuned to particular frequencies and frequency patterns. The magnetic fields depending on their amplitude and frequency penetrate the cells and enhance oxygenation and cellular function by stimulating the mitochondria.

PEMF therapy for pain or inflammation is not just treating the symptoms but delivers true cellular regeneration (8) and alleviation of the issue. PEMF's reduce the experience of pain by working to stop and reverse these mechanisms and help the body to repair underlying damage.

To help manage pain and inflammation, PEMF therapy has been proven to work very well in a variety of conditions such as diabetic ulcers (2), arthritis (3), osteoporosis (4), fibromyalgia (5), sciatica (6), migraines, inflammatory bowel disease as well as several other inflammatory skin (7) conditions and joint inflammation conditions.

There is a lot more research than cited here, PEMF therapy has the potential to heal the body and mind in most conditions. It’s the fastest way to recover and reduce pain drug-free, naturally by enhancing the body’s cells’ performance.

PEMF therapy hasn’t produced undesirable side effects in any study or any indication, making them a safe choice for pain management. Issues like shoulder pain, postoperative pain, pelvic pain syndrome, osteoarthritis pain, orthopedic and musculoskeletal pain, neuropathy, migraine, headache, fibromyalgia, and back pain have all been found to get great benefit when PEMF therapy is used. Applying PEMF therapy is the most effective way to reduce tissue swelling, reverse chronic inflammation, improve circulation, speed up tissue repair, increase bioenergy, and reduce muscle spasms.

Bone, joint & spine or orthopedic doctors who work with pain management include prothetists, orthopaedists, orthropedic surgeons, orthopaedic oncologists, sports medicine doctors, osteopaths, physical therapists, neurologists, chiropractors and more. Most doctors today are able to diagnose conditions pain causing conditions specially with better diagnostics becoming widely available.

We can see that PEMF therapy is a viable rehabilitation and recovery tool for pain and inflammation. Regular PEMF treatments now make massive improvements in wellness possible.
