Pain Management – Making a case for PEMF Print

There are many approaches to manage pain including but not limited to physical approaches, psychological approaches and medications. The typical pain management team includes medical practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists, psychologists, therapists and nurses. Pain sometimes is resolved once the underlying trauma has healed and is treated with drugs. Both acute and chronic pain usually require the coordinated efforts of a management team for a long duration. Today with the blend of Eastern and Western medicine and holistic medicine, there are many other approaches to treating pain whether it be short-term or long-term chronic pain.

One approach to managing pain is known as Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field Therapy (PEMF or PEMFT) which is simply pulse magnetic waves similar to the magnetic waves that surround the earth and all of us every day. Science has shown us that all energy is electromagnetic in nature. All cells produce electromagnetic fields (EMFs). Every organ in the body produces its own bioelectromagnetic field and all 70 trillion cells in the body communicate with electromagnetic frequencies. PEMF treats those cells and helps to reduce pain, inflammation and the effects of stress on the body. PEMF treatments can improve energy, circulation, oxygenation, sleep quality and many other bodily functions. PEMF devices have been approved by the FDA and most are considered safe and non-invasive by various standards and organizations. Therapeutic PEMFs are designed to positively support cellular energy helping cellular health and function. 

PEMF devices vary by waveform, strength, and types of applicators. No one type of treatment fits all situations. Most PEMF devices will help to varying degrees depending on the problem and condition.  Selecting the wrong device may produce unsatisfactory results. Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy was approved by the FDA in 1979 specifically for the healing of nonunion fractures, which came after a Columbia University study that was supported by NASA and has recently gained attention in the U.S (even appearing as a segment on the Dr. Oz Show). 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, physiotherapists and neurologists.

The application of pulsed magnetic fields has, through research findings, been shown to help the body to restore normal potentials at an accelerated rate, thus aiding the healing of most wounds, regenerating tissue and reducing swelling and pain faster. Clinical experience has shown that pulsed electromagnetic field therapy may be used for a number of conditions and issues, and that the benefits include:
  • Reduction of pain and inflammation
  • Improve energy/circulation, blood/tissue oxygenation
  • Regulate blood pressure and cholesterol levels as well as the uptake of nutrients
  • Increase cellular detoxification and the ability to regenerate cells
  • Accelerates repair of bone and soft tissue / relaxes muscles
In subsequent articles I will attempt to describe PEMF and how it works. We will also show the results of many years of trials and studies.
