PEMF therapy will be the future of Pain Clinics, Spas, Gyms
Bring your clinic to the forefront of cutting-edge PEMF technology by being able to offer your patients the most effective pain relief therapy.
Putting the PEMF 8000 in your Spas, Clinics, and office will allow you to accelerate healing protocols and provide exciting results. PEMF 8000 rapidity heals open wounds, reduces scarring, relaxes excess muscle tension, and it aids in union and recovery of broken bones.
PEMF is used to positively impact energy within the damaged or injured cells. It does this by directing repeating electromagnetic pulses toward the affected cells, stimulating a healthier response.
The way PEMF works is simple. PEMF is a device that emits these electromagnetic pulses through a coil applicator. This applicator is placed on or near the area which is injured or somehow damaged. Energy is then induced from the device to the impacted cells, thus providing the patient with a number of different benefits.
PEMF provides additional benefits to the bone
Although PEMF is shown to be effective when it comes to reducing pain, it has other benefits as well. A notable one is an improved healing response by the bone.
For instance, a 2012 study published in the Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery and Research involved 44 patients with fractured tibias that were either taking longer than normal to heal or not healing at all. After undergoing PEMF therapy, 77.3 percent of the fractures finally healed.
This was regardless of the age of the fracture, fracture type, and whether the individual had other issues that could possibly complicate the healing process, such as whether they smoked or had diabetes. Based on these results, researchers concluded that “PEMF stimulation is an effective non-invasive method for addressing non-infected tibial union abnormalities.”
Additionally, in 2015, researchers from the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine and Physical Therapy from Second Affiliated Hospital, Chong Quinn Medical University in China discovered that 12 weeks of PEMF therapy provided another advantage. It prevented bone loss and improved lipid metabolism disorders.
While this particular study was conducted on rats, it’s promising that the same positive results could potentially be found in humans as well. So promising in fact, that the Engineering Directorate at Johnson Space Center has made the study of PEMF a priority for helping astronauts reduce bone loss and muscle atrophy, as well as supplementing the body’s natural healing processes while engaged in space exploration.
Incorporating PEMF in your practice
Incorporating PEMF therapy in your practice is a great way to offer patients another treatment modality that is relatively low in cost, yet still very effective. Plus, in true chiropractic tradition, it’s 100 percent all-natural as it essentially works with the body to help it heal itself.
What is even better is the number of patients the technology can treat. As it is only contraindicated for pacemakers (and other electronic implants), pregnancy, and under the age of 18 (without written consent), the sheer volume of potential patients that are eligible for treatment makes this a valued treatment option that more and more practitioners are investigating.
Getting patients on board
For patients interested in trying PEMF, one common question is how it will make them feel.
Professional athlete Igor Olshansky, former defensive end for the San Diego Chargers, shares how he used PEMF after training or practice and that it made him “feel better, more energized.”
Users of PEMF can actually feel the magnetic wave of energy entering their body; it seeks out or finds areas of the body with previous injury or issue and the user can feel this entire process.
Olshansky also explains how PEMF helped alleviate his aches and pains, enabling him to practice proper technique so as not to compromise himself and increase his risk of injury, providing just one more benefit of engaging in PEMF therapy.
What’s old is new
While you may have not thought a technology from the 1800s could find its way into your practice, PEMF is a great way to benefit your practice. This type of therapy helps to increase patient outcomes by providing pain relief and healing injuries while being relatively low cost to you. Including PEMF therapy in your practice boosts your bottom line while effectively treating your patients.
