PULSED ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELD (PEMF) THERAPY
PEMF Acronym for “Pulsed Electromagnetic Field.” This is a device that generates wave-like charges called electromagnetic fields. The changing polarity of this magnetic device has been approved by the FDA to help fractured bones heal* and is also being used in treating pain (globally and in the US without FDA approval).
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy influences cell behavior by inducing electrical changes around and within the cell. Improved blood supply increases the oxygen pressure, activating and regenerating cells. Improved calcium transport increases absorption of calcium in bones and improves the quality of cartilage in joints, decreasing pain dramatically. Acute and even chronic pain – even that caused by osteoporosis – may disappear completely.
Various types of magnetic and electromagnetic fields are now in successful use in modern medicine. Electromagnetic therapy carries the promise to heal numerous health problems, even where conventional medicine has failed. Today, magnetotherapy provides a non invasive, safe, and easy method to directly treat the site of injury, the source of pain and inflammation, and a variety of diseases and pathologies. Millions of people worldwide have received help in treatment of the musculoskeletal system, as well as for pain relief. Pulsed electromagnetic fields are one important modality in magnetotherapy. Recent technological innovations, implementing advancements in computer technologies, offer excellent state-of-the-art therapy.
PEMF – Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields,the fifth element needed for human health and well being.
In Yuri Gagarin’s historic flight into space, he returned in near critical condition after only one hour and forty eight minutes in space. Clearly there was some vital element missing in space that we receive on earth. Well Yuri had plenty of food, he had water, and also oxygen and since the flight was less than 2 hours he really only needed oxygen. So what’s missing? Well you may say gravity and yes you would be correct, but we can survive in near weightless environments here on earth (in water for example) for just a couple hours. The critical missing element is PEMF – Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields.
Since that first flight, pulsed magnetic devices have been used in every space suit and space station.
PEMF’s are like a spark plug or catalyst for energy production in the cell. Just like a car needs oxygen, fuel and a ignition (spark plug), so does the human cell need fuel (glucose), oxygen and a “spark plug” or ignition. This ignition is PEMF or pulsed magnetic energy from both the earth and movement/exercise on the earth.
We can also think of PEMF as a battery recharger for the human cell. We now know that the voltage of a healthy cell is about 70 mill volts and when we get sick that voltage can drop to as low as 40 mill volts or lower in the cases of terminal cancer. Pulsed electromagnetic fields act like a catalyst and are critical for human metabolism.
PEMF’s also improve microcirculation, help in nerve regeneration, pain management and many other health promoting benefits. There are over 1000 clinical studies and over 7000 research papers validating the therapeutic benefits of PEMFs.
All degenerative disease and premature aging is caused by energy deficiency in the human biological system. Many symptoms simply disappear if the energy level of the effected person is increased. It is more effective to treat the cause (energy deficiency) and not the symptoms (disease).
At the age of 20, our energy potential is at it highest. The energy of our body reduces considerably between the age 35 and 45. At the age of 60, human energy can be as low as 40% and at the age of 75 as low as 50%. The risk of disease increases. The body lacks energy to fight infections or recover from accidents. PEMF therapy can restore blood flow, carrying needed oxygen and nutrients to the injury site. Ion concentrations are rebalanced, speeding the removal of inflammatory toxins; relieving pain and restoring joint flexibility. Healing of sports or work related injuries can be accelerated by as much as 50%.

- INFLAMMATION / SWELLING / PAIN – LOW BACK AND NECK PAIN
- PREMENSTRUAL PAIN / POSTPARTUM PAIN
- MIGRAINE HEADACHE / TENSION HEADACHE
- MUSCULOSKELETAL / SPINAL CORD INJURY / MUSCLE LOSS
- NERVE INJURY / NEUROPATHY / NERVE REGENERATION
- SCIATICA / NEURITIS
- SKIN ULCERS / WRINKLES
- TRAUMA / SURGERY / SPINAL SURGERY / SPORTS INJURY
- OTHER ACHES, PAINS, AND INJURIES
- AND MANY OTHER CONDITIONS
What is Osteoarthritis (OA)? Osteoarthritis is a disease that affects joints in the body. It can involve any joint, but usually concerns hands and weight-bearing joints such as hips, knees, feet and spine. It is caused by breakdown of the cartilage, the tissue that covers bones in a joint.
Osteoarthritis most often occurs in the hands (at the ends of the fingers and thumbs), spine (neck and lower back), knees, and hips.
Cartilage is the tough elastic material that covers and protects the ends of bones. In healthy joints cartilage acts as shock absorber when you weight is exerted on the joint. The slippery surface of the cartilage allows the bones to move smoothly. When a joint problem develops osteoarthritis the cartilage gradually wears out and the bone underneath thickens.
What causes Osteoarthritis (OA)?
Primary osteoarthritis is mostly related to aging. With aging, the water content of the cartilage increases and the protein makeup of cartilage degenerates. Repetitive use of the joints over the years irritates and inflames the cartilage, causing joint pain and swelling. Eventually, cartilage begins to degenerate by flaking or forming tiny crevasses. In advanced cases, there is a total loss of the cartilage cushion between the bones of the joints. Loss of cartilage cushion causes friction between the bones, leading to pain and limitation of joint mobility.
Secondary osteoarthritis is caused by disease or conditions, such as obesity, repeated trauma or surgery to the joint structures, abnormal joints at birth (congenital abnormalities), gout, diabetes and other hormone disorders.
What treatments are available for Osteoarthritis (OA)?
Osteoarthritis is still regarded as an incurable disease in medical textbooks. The treatments available include:
- Reduce the pain with medicines, Herbs and Heat or cold applications
- Supportive measures like weight loss, rest, nutrition/ food supplements
- Assistive devices to enable mobility
- Surgical treatment for severe Osteoarthritis with significant loss of cartilage.
How does Pulsed Electromagnetic field therapy reduce pain in joints?
When connective tissue is injured and physiological signaling is disturbed or lost. Pulsed signal Technology, as external, biophysical signal (stimulus) of physiological energy parameters and waveform, passively induces ‘fluid flow’ in the injured area, creating ‘streaming potentials’ that induce biophysical-biochemical coupling, subsequent signal transduction, to activate repair and regenerative processes. In doing so, it restores the innate, physiological signaling to enable these regenerative and repair processes to continue naturally.
How many treatment sessions comprise the full course of therapy?
A full therapy course consist of 15-20 half hour treatments, administered on working days, for cervical, thoracic, lumbar spines, shoulder joint, hip joint and knee joint.
