Approximately 76 million people suffer from chronic pain in the United States today. That is one in every four Americans. Lasting longer than 24 hours at a time, chronic pain contributes to a number of health concerns and is the number one reason for long-term disability today. Pain medicines can come with a laundry list of additional problems and many people are seeking an alternative way to manage, or ideally stop, their chronic pain. Advances in specialized forms of treatments are providing new and improved ways to combat chronic pain without the dreaded side effects that come with more traditional and invasive methods. One such method of pain treatment lies in the development of a Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Frequency Machine, or PEMF.
Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Frequency Machines fight pain at the source by pulsing the body with an electromagnetic field. The electric signal passes through bone and other tissue to inhibit bacteria, enable the cells in the body to repair quicker and more effectively and deliver more nutrients and oxygen to tissues while removing dangerous toxins and waste products more effectively. Portable, lightweight and hands-free, it is convenient and non-invasive.
Some patients have reported dramatic improvements in the alleviation of pain within minutes or with the first treatment. Lasting for up to three days after the initial treatment, consistent treatment has led to considerable improvements in pain and well-being for many patients who have tried other courses of treatment for their pain with little to no improvement.
In fact, the treatment is so successful that members of the US Special Forces are testing its’ effectiveness for chronic pain management. After a two-month, ongoing trial of using the device as a drug-free complement to physical therapy, the Navy SEALs have shown positive results. By reducing inflammation and increasing blood circulation in the body, PEMFs increase the body’s natural healing abilities, making it an ideal form of treatment for chronic as well as faster muscle recovery, promotion of increased range of motion, reduction in phantom limb pain and even some lesser intended benefits including improvements in sleep.
