What is PEMF Therapy and How Can it Help?

Cells are everywhere. They are covering you inside and out. How healthy and strong these cells are affects everything in your body—from your performance to your ability to fight disease.

PEMF therapy has the unique ability to charge your cells. This keeps them effective instead of turning into a swirling cloud of dust.

PEMF therapy may seem like something out of Star Trek but, variations of it have been around for centuries. It is a painless, safe, and non-invasive method of healing that more and more people are taking advantage of.  

What Is PEMF Therapy

The cells in your body do a lot of work to keep you healthy. However, eventually, the cells in your body can become depleted, making it more difficult for them to repair damage and fight disease.

PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) therapy emits painless bursts of low-level radiation to heal damage in the body and relieve pain.

These powerful low frequencies pass through the skin and travel deep into your muscles, bones, tendons, and organs. This process activates your cells energy, encouraging natural repair and restoration.

The therapeutic frequencies used in PEMF treatments are low and used in short burst in a short amount of time. You get the safe, positive, healing effects of PEMF without the potentially harmful effects of EMFs (electromagnetic fields).

How Is PEMF Different

PEMF therapy and LLLT (Low-Level Laser Therapies) may seem very similar. But, although they serve similar functions—clear differences exist.

While PEMF therapy uses electromagnetic frequencies to energize cells, LLLT uses red and near-infrared light from a laser or LED. The low-level laser light stimulates energy in your cells and can help heal damage. The LLLT method has proven useful in specific situations but, PEMF therapy seems to be the superior option.

° PEMF can be used consistently and for a more extended period each session. LLLT can cause irritation or adverse effects if used for too long or too often

° PEMF can penetrate energy deep into the damaged area. LLLT has a shallow depth.

° PEMF therapy can be used to on the full body in one session if needed. LLLT can only affect a single point at a time.

What Can PEMF Therapy Do For You

The idea behind PEMF therapy is that the energy pulses will penetrate and stimulate the cells not only at the injury site but, everywhere around it.

PEMF therapy has also shown to be promising to the future of regenerative medicine. Regenerating nerve fibers in the spinal cord, impacting the growth of bone cells, and even regenerating the liver in rats who had a part of their liver removed—PEMF has incredible potential.

  • PEMF and Pain

According to a study published in The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association, “Neck pain is the third most common chronic pain condition in the United States associated with long-term pain medication use.” Thankfully, studies have shown PEMF therapy to be useful in relieving chronic pain conditions like neck and back pain, and even fibromyalgia.

  • PEMF and Athletic Performance

PEMF therapy can be an essential tool for athletes to live up to their full potential and achieve peak performance. It can essentially help athletes treat and avoid injury for optimum performance. PEMF can also prepare your body for the impact of physical exertion. When your muscles, bones, and joints are in their best condition—it makes peak performance easier to achieve. Athletes are using PEMF to help heal faster and get back in the game.

If you suffer from chronic pain or want to keep your body working at optimal performance levels, PEMF therapy is worth talking to your chiropractor about. It may be the treatment you’ve been searching for.
