Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field therapy for tissue repair and pain management
Chronic pain is one of the most disabling and troublesome conditions that we are called upon to treat at the clinic. Most commonly used treatment options are generally ineffective in dealing with anything more than mild to moderate pain, and are associated with substantial risks of drug tolerance or side effects from surgical intervention and addiction.
Several types of diseases and conditions can cause pelvic pain and chronic pelvic pain can result from more than one condition. Always best to have a solid diagnosis before commencing any treatment protocol.
How does PEMF work?
The body’s natural magnetic field is formed through the transmission of electric impulses through cell membranes and the flow of electrically charged ions in and out of cells. If blocked by inflammation, trauma or disease normal repair capacity is reduced, blocked or lost altogether as cells are unable to get oxygen and nutrients or remove wastes.
PEMF machines work in conjunction with the body’s own recovery processes by restoring cells’ ability to function efficiently and promote repair where it had previously been inhibited.
Pain Management and Tissue Repair
PEMF therapy is able to reduce pain and repair tissues by activating and restoring energy to cells. With energy production restored, the body gets back to business decreasing inflammation, increasing cellular flexibility, increasing blood and lymph circulation, and increasing tissue oxygenation.
By overcoming the blocks preventing recovery, you experience faster recovery with less swelling and pain. In this way PEMF promotes regeneration of diseased and damaged organs, toning of tissues and the repair of fractured bones, torn ligaments and tendons.
What does treatment involve?
PEMF delivers an extremely high intensity, short duration electromagnetic pulse. This results in a magnetic field that penetrates completely through muscles and joints in as little as 3 to 15 minutes and consequently alleviates pain fast and has long-term benefit.
At Core, we have experienced and believe PEMF treatment to be an essential tool in many healing protocols. Our PMT 120 device uses advanced Frequency Modulated Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field therapy (FM-PEMF). This technology generates time variable, low frequency pulsed electromagnetic fields, which are far superior to other PEMF technologies.
Depending on your condition, you can expect to the treatment to be for 15-30 minutes, 2-3 times per week.
