Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy Explained

In need of some “recharging”? PEMF may be the answer! PEMF therapy treats your bodies cells as if they are batteries… it’s common for them to slowly be drained of energy. By the end of a day, your body and mind feel tired and depleted. That’s where PEMF technology steps in to save the day!
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (or PEMF) therapy sends a magnetic frequency that is relatively low (the same as the Earth’s at 7.8 Hz) through your body. This is said to promote all kinds of healing and can even mimic meditation.
How It Works
PEMF sends low magnetic frequencies through your body. PEMF passes through your skin and can stimulate the following parts of your body:
  • Muscle
  • Bones
  • Tendons
  • Organs
PEMF is performed through either a mat/pad-like machine that will send the electromagnetic waves into your body at the cellular level. The energy waves sent out will aid in ion and electrolyte production. This creates electric changes in your cells and increases cellular metabolism. Because your body runs on electrical pulses, when those signals are disoriented or disturbed, pain and illness are caused. PEMF therapy works to realign your electrical network, thus it can aide in the healing process and returning your body to its “normal” state.
Who Can Use PEMF?
PEMF is recommended, by Interventional Orthopedics of Atlanta, to be used for people who have experienced or currently experience pain in the following areas:
  • Joint/soft tissue inflammation
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Osteopenia/osteoporosis
  • Poor wound healing
  • Ankles
  • Back
  • Elbows
  • Hips
  • Knees
  • Shoulder
If chronic pain is a part of your life, PEMF may benefit you.
Note: Please consult a qualified medical practitioner before seeking out PEMF therapy. It is paramount that your healing is specific to your health and medical history.  Also know that PEMF can NOT be used if you have a pacemaker, are pregnant or have other implanted medical devices… please inform us/them prior to your appointment if you have any of the above.
PEMF has numerous benefits, including aiding in the healing process of the aforementioned ailments. However, according to Interventional Orthopedics of Atlanta and wellness company HIGHER DOSE, PEMF also:
  • Expedites and enhances recovery
  • Corrects cellular dysfunction
  • Improves oxygenation in tissue
  • Encourages better sleep
  • Recharges cells
  • Improves athleticism
  • Reduces pain/inflammation
  • Boosts the immune system
  • Heals injury faster
  • Aids in anti-aging
  • Increases circulation
PEMF seems pretty universal, and could be the treatment you are looking for to get your life back on track. As we mentioned earlier, please consult a medical professional if you are considering PEMF treatment for your current situation.
