What is Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF)?
Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy is often falsely referred to as “magnet therapy” or “therapeutic magnets”. In essence, PEMF utilizes electromagnetic wavelengths to repair your body's functions. Many PEMF devices are FDA approved.
PEMF is most often utilized in orthopedic medicine. Magnetic field therapy has been used to treat:
- Minor fractures
- Post-operative pain
- Chronic pain
- Sports injuries
- Back pain
- Knee pain
- Chronic stress
- Soft tissue injuries
- Parkinson's disease
- Multiple sclerosis (MS)
- Depression (also known as transcranial magnetic stimulation)
PEMF affects everyone differently, just as no two people's pain is exactly the same. If you're suffering from one of these issues, request a consultation with a PEMF professional: call (423) 482-8711 or contact Dr. Dalal Akoury online.
How Does Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) Work?
PEMF, as the name implies, utilizes pulsating electromagnetic fields. Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy is non-invasive and non-surgical. There PEMF procedure causes virtually no pain and take just a short amount of time. During the procedure:
- A small device, typically with paddles, is attached to the target area
- Small bursts of electromagnetic energy are emitted
- These pulses of electromagnetic energy help to reset the electromagnetic fields (EMFs) that reside within your cells.
Every cell, tissue and organ emits some electromagnetic frequency. PEMF seeks to right these frequencies when they come disrupted, resulting in reduced pain and inflammation .
Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy requires the use of a special PEMF machine and cannot be administered with standard magnets, which do not emit the necessary frequency.
