Pulsed Electromagnetic Field
A SOLUTION FOR CHRONIC PAIN
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.
HOW DOES PEMF WORK?
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.
