Is Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy the Fountain of Youth?

PEMF Therapy has become an increasingly popular alternative to these common surgeries, offering relief from chronic pain caused by everyday activities or medical conditions, without resorting to invasive methods.

How many times have you heard that pain is normal after a certain age? People for generations have been dealing with different types of pain and always overlook or disregarded until there is no other choice of surgery. But what if I told you that you have the control to manage and avoid this problem? 

Male patient of age 94 suffered from left knee inflammation and soreness. Knee swelling started after a fall on his knees with immediate inflammation around the area. Fracture of any of the structures where not found after visiting emergency room.

The Patient experienced immediate weakness in the core, balance problems, and gait changes. Patient since the accident was not able to spend time with his family due to the pain and lack of mobility.

The Patient express that he wanted to travel with his family but any kind of traveling requires moving or walking for longer periods of time and patient was not able to do this with his knee inflammation and pain.

Pulse electromagnetic field therapy (also abbreviated as PEMF’s) was offered on the knee decreasing inflammation, pain, and increasing mobility of the knee within less than 1 month of treatment.  Patient at the age of 94 was movable again, core weakness, pain and balance were not a problem anymore. Patient after finish treatment started to travel with his family enjoying life without restrictions on his knee. 

What PEMF therapy is: 

Electromagnetic fields provide a non-invasive, safe and easy method to treat pain in respect to musculoskeletal disease. Pain can cause sensory and emotional experience associated with possible tissue damage. Musculoskeletal disease can cause pain, mobility limitation, functional ability, decrease social roles affecting the patient mentally, and physically.

Most common disabling musculoskeletal conditions are osteoarthritis, back pain, neck pain, tendinopathy, fibromyalgia, myofascial pain, and among others. 

Benefits of the PEMF therapy

Studies show benefits with the use of Pulse electromagnetic field therapy also known as a PEMF’s. Some of the studies suggest that electromagnetic field therapy relieves pain and improves function in patients with various pain musculoskeletal diseases.

This research concluded that Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy is at the low weak intensity and low frequency (from 1Hz up to 100Hz) are the most commonly used and most effective in resolving pain. 

Based on the studies on PEMFs there is a role in mediating Osteoarthritis and might be regarded as a valuable treatment of Osteoarthritis. Such treatment can be beneficial in cartilage homeostasis and in maintaining extracellular matrix (ECM) morphology.

Studies provided suggestive evidence supporting PEMF efficacy in the management if knee osteoarthritis. Patient that used the PEMF significantly improved on efficacy for function in reduction of knee pain.  

Why Choose PEMF Therapy?

Is a non-invasive therapeutic modality such as Pulse Electromagnetic Fields therapy have shown positive effects on conditions such as osteoarthritis and in treating various bone disorders. PEMF’s stimulate proliferation of chondrocytes and exert a protective effect on the catabolic environment suppressing chondrocytes apoptosis.

The effects of the PEMF have demonstrated improvements in ADL, pain, and stiffness.
