PEMF therapy is a type of physical therapy that uses electromagnetic fields to treat chronic or acute bone and muscle conditions. It restores homeostasis in injured cells and is considered highly effective if done by a professional.
What Is PEMF Therapy Used For?
PEMF therapy relieves pain and inflammation in the bones, muscles, and joints. This is why it is especially recommended and used for people suffering from osteoporosis, arthrosis, arthritis, or joint pain. However, it is also used for bone consolidation following fractures, reabsorption of bone edema, and in a variety of other applications. Let’s take a deeper look at the situations in which PEMF therapy is useful and the disorders that can be treated:
PEMF therapy is a treatment that involves medium to extended cure times as well as the patient’s patience. Although some patients may experience initial results after only ten days or so, a treatment cycle typically lasts 45-60 days and can be repeated several times per year. Furthermore, the patient is expected to undergo therapy for at least 2-3 hours per day (maybe more, depending on the pathology and instructions obtained from their doctor).
What Are The Benefits Of PEMF Therapy?
PEMF therapy’s benefits come mostly from its ability to alleviate pain and inflammation. This nearly invariably coincides with the potential of regaining movement, as well as the peace of mind that comes with being able to resume one’s everyday activities.
In addition to its analgesic and anti-inflammatory benefits, PEMF therapy helps to reactivate blood circulation, particularly microcirculation, promote scarring and tissue repair processes, and relax muscles.
Does PEMF Therapy Work?
For decades, PEMF therapy has been a well-established therapy with universally acknowledged success. There are thousands of clinical trials in the literature that demonstrate the efficacy of PEMF therapy in the treatment of musculoskeletal illnesses.
When the body is in an inflammatory or diseased state, its cells are damaged and its membranes lose some of their ability to move nutrients and trash around with the outside world. Pulsed electromagnetic fields restart the communication process between the interior and outside of the cell, speeding up the healing time of the treated tissue.
