Are you looking for a lasting solution for pain relief and overall wellness? Here at Gilmore Chiropractic, we can help. We offer Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field (PEMF) therapy for fast relief from chronic pain and inflammation and improved quality of life. PEMF therapy is a noninvasive treatment and safe approach for pain management that helps decrease drug use and dependency.
PEMF therapy helps the body to:
- Reduce fatigue
- Reduce pain and inflammation
- Restore bone density and repair bone fractures
- Improves sleep
- Reduce toxicity
- Increases cell hydration
- Minimize stress
- Support neurotransmitter balance
- Improves neuropathy pain
- Promotes sports injury recovery
- Increases circulation
- Increases range of motion
- Decreases muscle spasms
- Improves stem cell therapy results
- Increases strength and flexibility
- Improves nerve and muscle response
- Helps improve pain for diabetic neuropathy
- Helps regenerate parts of the liver that had been removed
When damaged cells are charged, every system in the body becomes optimised. This helps slow or stop the release of pain and inflammatory mediators and increases blood flow in the cells. Once pain and inflammation have reduced, your energy levels increase, tissues heal faster than before, and your overall body function will improve. PEMF can also be combined with Prolotherapy (an injection that is an alternative therapy for joint and muscle pain) to reduce pain and improve your health to allow for a fast recovery.
How You Prepare
There are no special or specific preparations. Patients that take nutritional supplements before the PEMF therapy is administered tend to experience fewer side effects. Staying hydrated before, during and after the treatment helps manage the side effects. Wear comfortable clothing when going in for your session. In case you have any concerns, talk to your healthcare professional.
What to Expect
The PEMF machines come in handheld devices and specialized mats that rest on the bed, table, or floor, which allow you to lay directly on the device during treatment. With the whole body mat, they energise all the body cells. The type of device depends on your needs and application method preference.
PEMF devices are powered by electricity to produce electromagnetic fields. The electricity does not get into the body; instead, it activates the coils in the PEMF device, which generate the electromagnetic field pulses into the treatment area and does not affect the areas that do not require the treatment. PEMF therapy is painless, and there is no need to undress.
You may receive your therapy while seated or lying down comfortably. During the session, the PEMF device will be placed on the treatment area to emit the pulsed electro-magnetic pulses and adjusted to your comfort. If you feel any discomfort, inform your PEMF professional for adjustments. Every person’s experience varies depending on the settings, accessories used and overall health. Most people may experience the following during their first session, which is normal:
- Movement of the pulsing action as it stimulates different body areas
- Noticeable pulsing and stimulation in certain areas
- Small muscle contractions
- Sensitivity in some body areas
- Possible lightheadedness or nausea
The length of the sessions varies, but they typically take an hour twice weekly, depending on your condition. For health and wellness maintenance, you can undergo ten to fifteen-minute sessions.
Most people have an enjoyable experience and feel great right away. The increase in energy and decrease in pain is felt by most people almost immediately, with effects lasting for hours or days. In some cases, the effects may take time to accumulate, and you may not experience any noticeable changes immediately, but as the sessions increase, a cumulative impact lasts longer. PEMF therapy taps into the body’s ability to self-heal and enhance the cells’ energy to improve and function optimally. PEMF therapy for the whole body provides terrific benefits, long-term effects, and wellness. If there are any adverse side effects, they diminish after a few sessions as the body gets used to the treatment.
Results and Success Rates
PEMF therapy is safe and effective and helps improve wellness and overall quality of life without adverse reactions. According to studies, PEMF treatments have an average success rate of 80.1% (ranging from 67.6% to 93.9%), depending on the areas treated.
