Like a healing technology from the future… here today.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy has been around for over 50 years. The reason most people have not heard of it has more to do with medical politics and less to do with effectiveness. Over 2000 studies on PEMF therapy around the world have proven it safe and effective on a large scale.
The first commercially produced high power PEMF devices entered the market around 1975. They focused on muscle, nerve, tendon, ligament and cartilage health, on reducing pain and on regeneration. Medical PEMF therapy has been accepted in many countries around the world.
The US FDA accepted the use of PEMF devices in the healing of non-union bone fractures in 1979, urinary incontinence and muscle stimulation in 1998 and depression and anxiety in 2006. Israel has accepted the use of PEMF devices for migraine headaches.
Both Canada and the European Union has accepted PEMF therapy in many areas including healing and recovery from trauma, degeneration and the treatment of pain associated with these conditions.
In 1995, Siskin and Walker provided a summary of clinical results using PEMF on soft tissue damage. They observed no adverse effects and the following positive effects were reported:
- Decreased pain
- Reduced inflammation
- Increased range of motion
- Faster functional recovery
- Reduced muscle loss after surgery
- Increased tensile strength in ligaments
- Faster healing of skin wounds
- Enhanced capillary formation
- Acceleration of nerve regeneration
- Decreased tissue necrosis
The healing benefits of PEMF are vast. For the past 5 years Dr. Irestone has seen PEMF therapy benefit the following conditions:
- Structural issues as mentioned above
- Sleep disturbance
- Immune deficiencies
- Chronic infections
- Skin disorders
- Chronic and acute pain
- Failed surgeries
- Bone fractures
- Chronic knee pain
- Frozen shoulder
- Low back and neck pain
- Neurologic conditions
- Diabetic Neuropathy
Health Resources utilizes the most up to date PEMF technology in the world. The NRG-Pro PEMF system is manufactured in Atlanta Georgia and is their top of the line model. PEMF therapy is safe, comfortable and works naturally with the bodies healing systems.
The most common feedback we get from patients who use PEMF is, “why didn’t I know about this sooner.”
