Magnetic Field Therapy:
Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMFT), also called pulsed magnetic therapy, pulse magneto therapy, or PEMF, is a reparative technique used in the field of orthopedics for the treatment of :
· Joint problems, such as arthritis.
· Migraine headaches.
· Pain, including mild to moderate pain after surgery as well as long-term (chronic) pain.
· Overstretched muscles or injuries to muscles, ligaments, and tendons (strains and sprains).
· non-union fractures
· congenital pseudarthrosis
· failed fusions
In the case of bone healing, PEMF uses electrical energy to direct a series of magnetic pulses through injured tissue whereby each magnetic pulse induces a tiny electrical signal that stimulates cellular repair. Many studies have also demonstrated the effectiveness of PEMF in healing soft-tissue wounds; suppressing inflammatory responses at the cell membrane level to alleviate pain, and increasing range of motion. 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. There are several electrical stimulation therapy devices, approved by the FDA, that are widely available to patients for use. These devices provide an additive solution that aid in bone growth repair and depression.
