Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy, commonly referred to as PEMF, uses weak electromagnetic currents to rejuvenate various body functions and jumpstart a multitude of positive biological functions. PEMF stimulates health and wellness benefits on a cellular level; strategically stimulating tissue regeneration and reducing internal imbalances to promote a healthy environment for new cells to develop, grow, and thrive.
PEMF therapy was first developed in 1979. However, it didn’t receive initial FDA approval until 1998 for urinary incontinence and muscle stimulation only. In 2006, PEMF received a second round of FDA approval for use in treating anxiety and depression. Today, Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy is used in multiple applications to:
- Increase cell function
- Lower stress levels
- Decrease inflammation
- Enhance circulation
- Increase body detoxification
- And more…
Different Conditions PEMF Therapy Can Treat
Due to its diverse range of physiological and psychological benefits, PEMF Therapy can be used on a consistent basis to proactively prevent and treat a multitude of conditions and disorders. Some common uses for PEMF Therapy include:
Chiropractic neurologists often use PEMF therapy to help patients manage chronic pain symptoms. The magnetic fields used in the treatment can help decrease nerve firing as well as help irritated nerves to repair and recover.
Stress poses several health risks. When left untreated, stress can run rampant in our bodies, accelerating the aging process and contributing to a myriad of other conditions, such as:
- Immune system disorders
- Heart disease
PEMF therapies directly stimulate the nervous system, organs, tissues, and cells to reduce the body’s response to stress and decrease its overall impact on our health.
PEMF can also help patients suffering from sleep disorders and insomnia. Elevated hormone levels and hyperactivity in various metabolic pathways can often trigger bouts of sleeplessness. Magnetic therapies can help balance internal systems to keep these bodily functions operating more evenly Additionally, PEMF can help relax muscles, reduce stress, and increase proper circulation, all of which can help us sleep more soundly.
