Pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMFs) are used in PEMF therapy, a non-invasive and all-natural treatment that some studies suggest may assist your body in healing itself. These fields are a particular kind of energy that can enter your tissues deeply and may activate biological activities. Inflammation, chronic pain, osteoarthritis, depression, fractures, and other disorders have all been treated using PEMF therapy for many years. It is important to note that these treatments may be approved for regulatory groups outside of the US, but at the time of this writing, these treatments are not approved or sanctioned by the FDA.
What is PEMF therapy and how does it work? In this article, we’ll go over the advantages of PEMF therapy observed in vitro and in vivo while suggesting how it might be used at home or under the supervision of a doctor or practitioner.
How Does PEMF Therapy Work?
Studies have shown that PEMF therapy may work to speed up your recovery from illnesses and injuries as well as to stop or lessen chronic pain by employing a specialized PEMF device to transmit minute quantities of energy (pulses) to particular areas of your body. The electromagnetic waves that are emitted by the device can penetrate as deep as several inches into your skin. Your cells and tissues are stimulated by the small electrical currents produced by these pulses.
It is believed that your cells’ ability to make more energy (ATP), take in more oxygen, improve blood flow, supply nutrients more effectively, reduce inflammation, and activate natural healing processes are all aided by this stimulation 1.
What are the Potential Benefits of PEMF Therapy?
PEMF therapy has been clinically shown, but not sanctioned by the FDA, to have many benefits for various health conditions. The most common are:
- Pain relief: It is possible that by lowering inflammation and obstructing pain signals, PEMF therapy can help you manage acute or chronic pain. It also may help enhance the function and mobility of joints that have undergone surgery or arthritis 2 3.
- Wound healing: PEMF therapy may accelerate wound healing by stimulating collagen production, increasing blood flow, and preventing infection. It can also help heal non-union fractures that do not respond to conventional treatments 4.
- Depression: It may be possible that by promoting brain activity and neurotransmitter release, PEMF therapy could enhance mood and cognitive performance. It may also assist in treating depression that is unresponsive to therapy or medicines 5.
- Immune system: By raising white blood cell count, promoting lymphatic drainage, and regulating inflammatory cytokines, PEMF therapy may strengthen your immune system. Infections may also be fought off or prevented by it by triggering natural killer cells 6 7.
This electromagnetic technology has a wide range of other uses that could enhance general health and well-being.
