PEMF (Pulsed electromagnetic field) therapy is a therapeutic use of pulsating magnetic fields and is applied using PEMF devices.
Nothing happens in the body without an electromagnetic exchange between cells. Natural electromagnetic energy controls our chemistry. When this energy is disrupted (by a bruise or traumatic injury, a tough workout, bad diet, or simply from getting older), our cells are impaired. When your cells aren’t healthy, your body isn’t healthy, in whole or in part.
By introducing a complementary electromagnetic ﬁeld into the body, you can reestablish healthy electromagnetic exchanges. This is why PEMFs (Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Fields) are so valuable – they stimulate all levels of the body. They are applied externally, and then fully penetrate the body, affecting individual cells and therefore tissues, organs, and complete body systems.
There are at least 800 peer-reviewed papers supporting the fact that electrical shock and electrical currents can induce signiﬁcant acceleration of repair in bone and other tissues (tendon and ligament). But the problem has always been (a) locating electrodes close enough to the tissues to be stimulated electrically, and (b) the fact that free electrical current follows a random path of least resistance.
PEMF systems like the FlexPulse PEMF device solve these problems by using magnetic ﬁelds as opposed to direct electrical ﬁelds. The FlexPulse™ magnetic ﬁeld generates a pulsed electromagnetic ﬁeld at all levels of the tissues in the right range of ﬁeld strength and duration to provide a cellular response much more safely than conventional electrotherapy.
Benefits of PEMF therapy
What types of conditions can be treated with PEMF Therapy?
PEMF therapy can be used by almost anyone to help with almost any condition or problem. Because magnetic ﬁelds affect us on a cellular level, they are not condition-speciﬁc. PEMF therapy has been shown to decrease inﬂammation, increase circulation, enhance muscle function, speed up bone healing, reduce the effects of stress, and improve blood oxygenation, among a myriad of other things. The variety of programs in the FlexPulse™ means it will be effective from everything from wound healing (anything from a bruise to an organ dysfunction) to quieting down an overactive mind, and almost everything in between.
Below PEMF therapy research articles attempt to educate about the benefits of PEMF therapy for a variety of conditions. We hope this information helps you learn more about effects of pulsed electromagnetic field therapy and how it can be applied to help you feel and perform better.
PEMF therapy is research proven to improve impairments resulting from Autism. Practitioners, including pediatricians should study PEMF therapy for autism to improve outcomes & quality of life of autistic children or adults with ASD.
Research on using PEMF therapy for Sleep suggests that pulsed magnetic fields improve the amount and quality of sleep. Read this article by Dr. Pawluk to learn about sleep problems and how PEMF therapy benefits sleep.
Pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy can be beneficial in treating eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataract, “floaters”, macular degeneration, and can also help de-stress the eyes. It can also increase eye health in relation to age-related and stress-related eye problems, and eye strain.
PEMF therapy for osteoporosis promotes osteogenesis or bone regeneration and has been shown to stimulate osteoblast activity and improve bone mineralization. Read our research review on PEMF therapy for Osteoporosis to see how it works.
Learn how pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy works for athletic performance enhancement. Research on developing a better physique & mental performance with PEMF.
Brainwave entrainment and brain stimulation are sometimes two separate topics and practices. However, when combined using PEMF therapy devices, brainwave entrainment and brain stimulation can provide far reaching longevity and recovery effects.
PEMF therapy for mental health and wellness has proven to be an effective, non-invasive and a drug-free way to achieve enhanced brain and sleep health. Read our research review of pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) therapy for mental wellness to see what inspired us to build the FlexPulse, the world’s most powerful wearable PEMF device.
PEMF therapy for Pain Management explains how Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy reduces pain and inflammation in a variety of conditions. Learn the science behind applying PEMF therapy for pain and why it is so effective in spite of being incredibly simple and affordable now.
The only absolute contraindication for use of the FlexPulse™ is placing the applicators over implanted electrical devices like pacemakers, cochlear implants, intrathecal pumps, etc, because the magnetic ﬁeld can shut the device off. Beyond that, the FlexPulse is safe for use over the heart (in fact, research has shown beneﬁt to congestive heart failure, A-Fib, etc), over the brain, over the eyes (a common use is for treatment of macular degeneration), directed at the prostate, etc. Safety of PEMFs has not been established in pregnancy, although there is no evidence of harm either. They should be used with caution in Grave’s disease or active bleeding.
