Pulsed Electromagnetic Field


PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses electromagnetic fields to promote healing and relieve pain. When it comes to chronic pain, PEMF therapy has shown promise in providing relief and improving overall well-being for patients. 

PEMF treatment can be performed on a daily basis because there is no breakdown of tissue that needs time to repair. PEMF promotes increased blood flow and enhances cellular metabolism, increasing ATP production in the cells to promote optimal cellular function.PEMF also increases electron ion transfer to promote healing and decrease inflammation.


    1. Pain reduction: PEMF therapy has analgesic properties, which can help reduce pain. It achieves this by influencing the electrical and chemical processes within the body. The electromagnetic fields generated by PEMF devices can target the source of pain and stimulate the release of endorphins, which are natural painkillers produced by the body. This can lead to a reduction in pain perception and an increased sense of comfort.


    1. Inflammation reduction: Chronic back pain is often associated with inflammation in the affected area. PEMF therapy has anti-inflammatory effects by modulating the inflammatory response. It can regulate the production of cytokines and promote a balanced inflammatory state. By reducing inflammation, PEMF therapy may improve mobility in the injured tissue.


    1. Enhanced tissue repair: PEMF therapy can stimulate tissue regeneration and repair. It does this by increasing blood flow to the affected area, which promotes the delivery of oxygen, nutrients, and immune cells necessary for tissue healing. Additionally, PEMF therapy accelerates the production of collagen, a key component of connective tissues, which can aid in repairing damaged structures in the tissue, such as ligaments, tendons, and discs.


    1. Improved cellular function: The electromagnetic fields produced by PEMF therapy can penetrate deep into the tissues and influence cellular processes. This includes improving the cells’ function in pain signaling and tissue repair. PEMF therapy can enhance cellular metabolism, increase energy production (ATP), and promote optimal cellular functioning. By improving the health and function of cells in the tissue, PEMF therapy may help alleviate chronic pain and support the body’s natural healing mechanisms.


    1. Bone and Joint Healing: PEMF therapy has been studied as a non-invasive way to aid in the healing of bone fractures. It’s believed that electromagnetic fields can stimulate bone cells and promote bone tissue growth and repair through the” Piezo-electric effect.” PEMF produces an ionic charge that facilitates bone regeneration that may help improve arthritic changes and facet syndrome due to facet hypertrophy., PEMF may decrease inflammation accumulated in the joints and may help reduce the neurological effects of spinal stenosis.

    PEMF therapy is believed to influence bone remodeling by affecting the activity of osteoblasts and osteoclasts, which are two types of bone cells responsible for the continuous process of bone formation and resorption. Here’s how PEMF therapy may interact with these cells:

    • Osteoblasts: Osteoblasts are bone cells responsible for bone formation. They synthesize and secrete the organic matrix of bone, which consists mainly of collagen, and also play a role in mineralization. PEMF therapy has been proposed to stimulate osteoblast activity by affecting intracellular signaling pathways and promoting the production of proteins involved in bone formation. This can potentially lead to increased bone matrix deposition and mineralization, contributing to bone healing and remodeling.

    • Osteoclasts: Osteoclasts are bone cells responsible for bone resorption, which is the process of breaking down old or damaged bone tissue. PEMF therapy influences osteoclast activity by modulating signaling pathways and factors involved in bone remodeling. PEMF may help regulate osteoclast activity and prevent excessive bone resorption, thus promoting a balanced bone remodeling process.

    The specific effects of PEMF therapy on osteoblasts and osteoclasts can vary based on factors such as the frequency, intensity, and duration of the electromagnetic fields used. The therapy may promote communication between these cells and the surrounding bone microenvironment, helping to maintain bone density, strength, and overall bone health.

    6. Relaxation and stress reduction: Chronic pain can increase stress and tension, further exacerbating symptoms. PEMF therapy can help promote sleep, reduce muscle tension, and improve mood. It can help promote better sleep, reduce muscle tension, and improve overall mood. PEMF therapy can provide holistic relief and support the body’s healing process.


      PEMF therapy works by utilizing electromagnetic fields to interact with the cells and tissues of the body. The treatment uses specialized devices that generate pulsed electromagnetic fields at specific frequencies and intensities. Here’s a more detailed explanation of how PEMF works:

      1. Electromagnetic field generation: PEMF devices consist of a control unit and applicators. The control unit contains a power source and controls the frequency and intensity of the electromagnetic fields. The applicators, which come in various forms (such as mats, pads, or coils), deliver the electromagnetic fields to the targeted area, such as the lower back.

      2. Cellular interaction: When the electromagnetic fields generated by the PEMF device come into contact with the body, they penetrate the tissues, including the skin, muscles, and bones. These fields induce electrical changes at the cellular level.

      3. Electromagnetic induction: The electromagnetic fields created by the PEMF device induce tiny electrical currents within the cells and tissues. This is known as electromagnetic induction. These induced electrical currents can affect the behavior and functioning of cells.

      4. Cellular responses: The induced electrical currents stimulate various cellular responses. These responses include increased cellular metabolism, enhanced production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate, the energy currency of cells), improved oxygenation, and nutrient uptake. This can lead to improved cellular function and overall tissue health.

      5. Modulation of cellular processes: PEMF therapy can modulate various cellular processes. It can influence ion channels, which are responsible for controlling the movement of ions in and out of cells. By modulating ion channels, PEMF can affect the electrical properties of cells and promote proper cell function.

      6. Signal transduction: PEMF therapy can also influence cell signal transduction pathways. Signal transduction involves the transmission of signals from the cell membrane to the cell nucleus, where specific genes are activated or deactivated. By modulating signal transduction, PEMF therapy can impact various cellular processes related to inflammation, pain perception, and tissue repair.

      7. Effects on the nervous system: PEMF therapy can interact with the nervous system, particularly the peripheral nerves. The electromagnetic fields generated by PEMF devices can influence nerve conduction and transmission, which may contribute to pain relief. Additionally, PEMF therapy can stimulate the release of endorphins, which are natural pain-relieving substances produced by the body.

      I love how they treat me on my visits. They have a very friendly team. The office has an amazing atmosphere. I get vip treatment from nurse that takes my blood. She is always friendly and gets me coffee and granola bars after my blood work. Completely an amazing experience.

      I had a wonderful first visit here with Dr Jeff and Donald, in Stuart. They immediately made me feel welcomed and cared for, which was such a beautiful feeling after visiting other offices in the area and being treated like “just another number.” When you go here.. you are treated with dignity and CARE. Donald is very knowledgeable in taking care of the modalities/therapy treatments, and is also very gentle and kind. Dr. Ashley is also beyond AMAZING. ALL the Doctor’s here are truly GENUINE and caring, and it shows in everything they do; in the way they care for and treat their patients. I feel very blessed that I happened to find their Stuart office. am looking forward to continuing my treatment plan. I can not thank them enough! I have continued treating with them for almost a year now. Their level of care and commitment remains - not only genuine - bc you can tell when folks are faking it; but they are always consistently loving, caring, and kind which is SO important to me. They give me renewed Hope ;-)
