Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is one of the most disabling and frustrating conditions that patients struggle with. Many of the current options for treating chronic pain are oftentimes ineffective in dealing with anything much more than moderatepain, and can be associated with serious risks of drug tolerance or side effects, addiction, and dependence.

Fortunately, Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF), is a safe and effective treatment method available to people who are suffering from persistent pain that is resistant to more conventional therapeutic methoods.

What is PEMF therapy?

Electrical charges in the cells of our bodies power nearly all our biological activities. From the atomic level to the complex functions of organs and systems, our bodies need to have a sufficient electrical charge for survival as well as to fight disease. Life is energy, primarily by way of electromagnetics.

At the cellular level, there are organelles called mitochondria. These operate similar to the cell’s batteries. They furnish electrons to spark the metabolic processes to ensure that the body can function optimally and properly. PEMF therapy facilitates this mitochondria function

A Non-Invasive Modality

PEMF is a noninvasive treatment that rapidly drives cells  into electrical equilibrium, increasing nutrient circulation and oxygen flow so that each cell then has the energy to work as the bodyintends. PEMF’s are low-frequency, pulsating magnetic fields with wavelengths that completely penetrate the body. They are naturally occurring frequencies that are supportive of the body’s functions.

During PEMF, magnetic fields pass readily through the cells, charging them like depleted batteries to enhance metabolic function and switch on natural repair processes. The patient can feel a pulse or tapping-like feeling while it travels through the body.

What are the benefits?

PEMF therapy shown to help the following:

  • Alleviate pain and decrease inflammation
  • Accelerate tissue healing and strengthen bones
  • Help to relieve injury and fatigue
  • Restore the immune system and neurotransmitter balance
  • Help with muscle relaxation
  • Reduce stress and increase relaxation
  • Achieve a deeper, more restorative state of sleep
  • Speedier functional recovery
  • Enhancement of capillary formation

I am excited about the tremendous potential PEMF therapy can have on my own patients. As a healer, I am thrilled for one more way to help people get to that state of health where their body can heal itself.
