What is PEMF Therapy? | WHAT IS PEMF? | WHAT IS PULSED ELECTORMAGMITIC THERAPY? | HOW DOES PEMF WORK?

PEMF WELLNESS TECHNOLOGY LOGO png large

You may be asking “what is PEMF therapy?” Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMFT), also called pulsed magnetic therapy, pulse magneto therapy, or PEMF, is a reparative technique most commonly used in the field of orthopedics for the treatment of non-union fractures, failed fusions, congenital and depression. In the case of bone Healing, PEMF uses electrical energy to direct a series of magnetic pulses through injured tissue whereby each magnetic pulse induces a tiny electrical signal that stimulates cellular repair. Many studies have also demonstrated the effectiveness of PEMF in healing soft-tissue wounds; suppressing inflammatory responses at the cell membrane level to alleviate pain, and increasing range of motion. The value of pulsed electromagnetic field therapy has been shown to cover a wide range of conditions, with well-documented trials carried out by hospitals, rheumatologists and physiotherapists.

PEMF Therapy

Reported Effects of PEMF Therapy

Magnetism is one of the universe’s fundamental powers. It has been used medicinally in China for over 2,000 years. Our ability to produce and control electro-magnetic fields and to use them to diagnose and treat has expanded enormously with the advent of electricity and electro-magnetic.

Pulse magnetic therapy is the application of electro-magnetic fields to treat and promote health. Although this emerging technology may be new to North America, it has been studied systematically throughout Eastern Europe and in the countries of the former Soviet Union for over 40 years and is a standard treatment for many conditions.

How important is pulse magnetic therapy? In 1992 Dr. Andrew Bassett, who helped pioneer the first FDA approved device using pulsed electro-magnetic fields, wrote, “In the decade to come bioelectro-magnetics will assume a therapeutic importance equal to, or greater than, that of pharmacology and surgery today. With proper interdisciplinary effort, significant inroads can be made in controlling the ravages of cancer, some forms of heart disease, arthritis, hormonal disorders, and neurological scourges such as Alzheimer’s disease, spinal cord injury, and multiple sclerosis.”

So, What is PEMF therapy? The future of living pain-free!

DETAILED PEMF BENEFITS

PEMF8000MOBILE DELUXE

INCREASED CIRCULATION

One of the most basic functions magnetic fields have in the body is to increase circulation. When a cell (such as a red blood cell) is injured or ill, it does not hold its ideal charge. This causes red cells to “stick” together, making circulation slow. When a magnetic field passes through the red cell, the membrane becomes properly charged, allowing the cell to repel itself and keep itself separate from other red cells, thereby increasing circulation. In addition, PEMF therapy increases various chemicals in the blood vessel walls that cause the blood vessels to dilate, improving the amount of blood flowing through the vessels and therefore increasing the amount of oxygen delivered to the tissues.

Poor circulation makes tissues unhealthy and prone to disease and breakdown. Improved circulation helps tissues get the nutrition and oxygen they need, while expelling the waste they produce. Good circulation helps with tissue healing and regeneration. The result of improved circulation is the reduction of swelling and the removal of bruising.

ENHANCED MUSCLE FUNCTION

Muscle energy, needed for muscles to work, is developed through a process called Myosin Phosphorylation. Myosin is muscle, and phosphorylation is energy (ATP) production. Optimal energy allows muscles to work harder and longer, and recover more quickly from their work. Muscles that are contracted or in spasm are better able to relax, decreasing tension and reducing the pain caused by spasm.

DECREASED INFLAMMATION

Inflammation is a cascade of physiologic processes initiated by the body to repair cellular damage in tissues by increasing the blood flow to the damaged area and increasing the number of good inflammatory cells. The process of inflammation is generated and supported by the interaction of a number of immune cell types, with other cell types (like T cells) playing a regulatory role in the cascade effect. Inflammation is a necessary and beneficial process, but it often persists longer than necessary, resulting in chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation is frequently a cause of chronic pain. PEMF therapy has been found to reduce chronic, damaging inflammation.  Inflammation can be initiated by many causes, and knowing the nature of the cause is important in designing therapeutic approaches.

T cells are a major regulator of the inflammatory cascade. In bacterial infections, early infiltration of the affected tissues by white blood cells is followed by the arrival of T cells, which kill bacteria. In this circumstance, eliminating of T cells can delay or stop healing. Conversely, in trauma-induced injury, T cells are less important to the healing process, and may be harmful if present for too long. In this case, elimination of T cells can minimize the unwanted effects of inflammation, accelerate healing, and reduce the risk of chronic inflammatory diseases. In chronic inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, or tendinitis, T cells support the persistence of the disease state, and removing them would be favorable.

Research shows us that PEMF can induce the appropriate death of aged, chronic T lymphocytes, by actions on T cell membranes and key enzymes in cells. For example, PEMF therapy affects ion flow through specific cell membrane channels (like those for sodium, potassium, and calcium), which positively affect these enzymes.

STRESS REDUCTION

Stress is part of being human. Normal stress, called estruses, is necessary for survival. Too much stress is very harmful to the body, and accelerates aging. Stress is responsible for at least 65% of our illnesses, so stress reduction is necessary for all of us. Stress-reducing activities performed only now and then will allow too much stress-related damage to accumulate over time. Therefore, stress reduction must be a daily activity. Magnetic fields have many stress-reducing effects. Daily use of PEMF help to wash away the negative effect natural stresses have on our bodies.

BONE HEALING

Magnetic fields pass through the body – even the bones – as if the body wasn’t even there. PEMF therapy work to repair bones, whether they are damaged by surgery, injury, or disease, and have been found to improve bone regeneration such as occurs with osteoporosis and osteopenia, among other bone destroying conditions.

BLOOD OXYGENATION

Just as a fire cannot burn without oxygen, our cells cannot produce heat and energy without oxygen. Our lungs extract oxygen from the air we breathe. It passes into our blood and is carried by arteries away from the heart and delivered to the rest of the body, including all the organs. PEMF therapy help with the process of extracting oxygen out of the air we breathe and help it to be transported into the circulation. The absorbed oxygen is then transported through the body to all the cells, where it is absorbed into the individual cells. In the cells, enzymes and other basic cell energy production processes use the oxygen for cell metabolism, the energy necessary to function properly. The metabolism of an organism determines which substances it will find nutritious and which it will find harmful. Proper blood-oxygen levels at the cell level (not just in the blood) allow this process to continue quickly and efficiently. After the oxygen exchange takes place, veins carry deoxygenated blood and metabolic waste products away from those same cells and back to the heart for recycling again.

WHO BENEFITS FROM PEMF THERAPY?

In today’s world, we live in a very toxic environment. In fact, it is said we eat/breathe/drink 82,000 toxins. These toxins have a harmful effect of altering our body’s DNA and the internal environment in which our cells live and multiply. By altering that environment, many people suffer from early effects of aging and cell death. The result is chronic health conditions.

PEMF therapy stimulates autophagy, a process of removing those sick and dying cells. Therefore, it can be said that really, all of us on the planet will benefit from PEMF. Who will notice the effects of PEMF therapy the most? Well, of course, the people who have the most illness.

We cannot say cure/treat when we talk about PEMF. PEMF therapy merely improves the quality of life and has been shown in many research projects at major universities to help people with strokes/Parkinson’s/chronic pain/degenerative health conditions/broken bones that won’t heal/depression  and non healing open wounds.

WHAT ARE THE USES FOR PEMF AND WHAT PROFESSIONS CAN BENEFIT FROM PEMF?

WHAT ARE THE USES FOR PEMF AND WHAT PROFESSIONS CAN BENEFIT FROM PEMF THERAPY?

PULSED ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELD THERAPY USES!

PEMF8000MOBILE DELUXE

In 1992, Dr. Andrew Bassett, one of the pioneers of Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy, stated “in the decades to come, bio-electromagnetic will assume a therapeutic importance equal to, or greater than, that of pharmacology and surgery today”. Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy is based on existing studies published by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other respected sources.  The PEMF8000 is the synthesis of our decade-long efforts in research and development, to advance known PEMF technology and make it even more effective.

Special attention went into making our PEMF device user-friendly, while keeping the initial investment cost reasonable to make it accessible, not just to large practices but also to home users.  The technology of our PEMF8000 has a proven track record backed by numerous studies across the globe.  The following are excerpts of some of the most prominent research published on the subject:

The PEMF8000 generates an electromagnetic field that pulses at high speed. This electromagnetic field is able to penetrate deep into the tissues.  This interaction in turn creates a flow of electricity at micro current levels and speeds exceeding 100 nanoseconds per pulse.

The micro current that flows through the damaged tissue inhibits bacteria and decreases inflammation, allowing cells to improve their bio-functions, taking in clean nutrients and removing dangerous toxins more effectively.

Treatments applied with the PEMF8000 produces immediate results.  Chronic pain patients typically experience relief after just 60 seconds of therapy.  This relief is not only immediate, but also long-lasting. In fact, patients feel better for about 3 days following a single application.

In addition, when treatments are administered regularly and for several weeks, we see cumulative results, with more than 75% of study cases showing recovery from conditions that had previously been considered permanent.

Can PEMF help reduce inflammation? | Can PEMF help the body to heal?

Can PEMF help reduce inflammation? | Can PEMF help the body to heal? YES!

pemf helps immflmation

Several factors may contribute to inflammation including injury, tissue damage, a poor localized circulation with the formation of edema. Inflammation causes pain. Swelling and bruising is an inflammation and discoloration of soft tissue caused by an impact injury or trauma. It can also result from surgery.

Tissue cells are inherently like tiny electrically charged machines. When a cell is traumatized, the cell’s electrical charge is diminished; this causes normal cell functions and operations to shut down. Cells that are scarred or fibrotic with adhesions have a TMP charge of approximately -15 mV, degenerative or immune-compromised cells average -30 mV, both low TMPs. With the raised TMP, the body releases chemical signals that cause inflammation swelling and bruising resulting in pain and inhibiting the cell communication pathways necessary for healing to begin.

Doctor physician group Isolated on white background.

Numerous clinical studies have demonstrated that PEMF therapy has been successful in reducing inflammation. PEMF therapy treats the cellular source of swelling by recharging the cells with a mild electromagnetic current. This stops the release of pain and inflammatory mediators, reduces inflammatory fluids and allows an increase in blood flow, therefore increased oxygen intake, to help the cells heal faster with less swelling, pain and bruising.

The effect of wound healing electromagnetic fields on inflammatory cytokine gene expression in rats was studied by Jasti et al. in 2001 who state: “Inflammation is characterized by massive infiltration of T lymphocytes, neutrophils and macrophages into the damaged tissue. These inflammatory cells produce a variety of cytokines, which are the cellular regulators of inflammation”. In a study on Low Frequency PEMF, a viable alternative therapy for arthritis published in 2009, Ganesan et al. (Department of Biotechnology, Chennai, India) declare: “PEMF for arthritis cure has conclusively shown that PEMF not only alleviates the pain in the arthritis condition but it also affords chondroprotection, exerts anti-inflammatory action and helps in bone remodeling, and this could be developed as a viable alternative for arthritis therapy”.
Damaged cells are also energy deficient; thus they have low oxygen levels, high in sodium levels, and have a faltered electrochemical gradient.

By inducing a mild electrical current into damaged cells, PEMF therapy slows or stops the release of pain and inflammatory mediators, increases blood flow, and re-establishes normal cell interaction. PEMF stimulates and restores the electrochemical gradient, the cell starts pumping sodium out, potassium enters the cell, the swelling resolves, oxygen starts flowing back in, and pain improves. Due to the density of the cell tissue, change requires stronger pulsed magnetic fields to be able to rest ore the healthy TMP to its optimal -70 mV.

Several factors influence tissue inflammation and the processes by which PEMF therapy operates to reduce inflammation include complex mechanical, chemical, electrical and magnetic processes along with increased circulation, oxygenation and cellular activity. With reduced inflammation, pain decreases and faster tissue healing occurs.

PEMF-Why-We-Can-All-Benefit-From-It-Infographic2

The Elsevier Journal of Biomedicine & Pharmacotherapy (2005) publication:
Effects of pulsed electromagnetic fields on auricular hyaline cartilage: review of experimental and clinical studies by M. Fini. G. Giavaresi, A. Carpi, A. Nicolini, S. Setti, R. Giardino (Experimental Surgery Department, Research Institute Codivilla-Putti-Rizzoli, Orthopedic Institute, via di Barbiano 1/10, 40136 Bologna, Italy, Department of Reproduction and Aging, University of Pisa, Pisa, Italy, Department of Internal Medicine, University of Pisa, Pisa, Italy, igea SRL, Carpi, Modena, Italy) states:  “Newer concepts on osteoarthritis (OA) pathogenesis are related to the role of inflammation that is now well accepted as a feature in OA. Synovitis is common in advanced age involving infiltration of activated B cells and T lymphocytes and the expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines and chemokines is observed in patients with OA in the joints of OA patients and animals.
With regards to this, IL-1, TNFæ, IL-6, IL-18, IL-17 and leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) appear to be more relevant to the disease. These catabolic cytokines lead to the destruction of joint tissue by stimulating cartilage PG resorption, MMP synthesis and nitric oxide production. The purine base adenosine has been shown to limit inflammation through receptor (i.e. A2a)-mediated regulation and suppressing pro-inflammatory cytokines synthesis (TNFæ, IL-8, IL-2, IL-6). Adenosine has been reported to reduce inflammation and swelling in several in vivo models of inflammation and also in adjuvant-induced and septic arthritis in animals.

So, a therapy combining an anabolic effect on chondrocytes, a catabolic cytokine blockage, a stimulatory effect on anabolic cytokine production and one that is able to counteract the inflammatory process would be extremely useful for OA treatment.
In vitro studies showed that chondrocyte proliferation and matrix synthesis are significantly enhanced by PEMF stimulation, when investigating also the conditions affecting the PEMF action. A part the importance of physical properties of the fields used (intensity, frequency, impulse amplitude, etc.) and the exposure time, the availability of growth factors, environmental constrictions and the maintenance of the native-cell matrix interactions seem to be fundamental in driving the PEMF-induced stimulation. In particular, the interaction between cell membrane receptors and mitogens seems to be one of the molecular events affected by PEMFs. These data are in agreement with results of in vivo studies with a decalcified bone matrixinduced endochondral ossification model and showing that the stimulation of TGF-b1 may be a mechanism through which PEMFs affect complex tissue behavior and through which the effects of PEMFs may be amplified. In addition, PEMFs are reported to up-regulate mRNA levels for,  and protein synthesis of, growth factors resulting in the synthesis of ECM proteins and acceleration of tissue repair. As far as inflammation is concerned, IL-1b is present in high amounts in OA cartilage and is considered to be one of the main catabolic factors involved in the cartilage matrix degradation associated with OA. As previously mentioned, PEMFs in vitro were able to counterbalance efficiently the cartilage degradation induced by the catabolic cytokine”.

As cited above, many studies lead to the conclusion that PEMF therapy is effective and reduces inf
