  • Overview

Are you looking for a lasting solution for pain relief and overall wellness? Here at Arizona Chiropractic & Holistic Health Center, 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.

Why is P.E.M.F. Done?

A pulsed electro-magnetic field, also known as pulsed magnetic therapy or pulse magnetotherapy, is a technology that involves the emission of low levels of electromagnetic energy at various points of your body. The FDA approved the technology for post-surgical pain and healing, knee pain, pain and inflammation, bone healing, and psychological repair with no adverse reactions. PEMF therapy harnesses the body’s ability to naturally generate electromagnetic waves to help heal tissues through pulses of magnetic fields administered to your tissues to promote repairs at the cellular levels. Since PEMF therapy works at cellular levels, it can address the underlying cause of your pain. The PMF device electromagnetic pulses also help speed up cell regeneration and stimulate bone tissue growth. .

Every cell in your body is a little battery or capacitator which holds a charge. The whole body is electrical, and for cells to function at their optimal level, they each require an electrical charge. At times, your body’s cells might lose their charge, affecting their ability to work usually. When most cells are not performing well, illness and pain occur. PEMF therapy charges up your cells and enhances the body’s natural ability to optimise its functions. The charged cells absorb vital nutrients, excrete waste and reproduce new, healthy cells. PEMF therapy has been widely researched for decades and has shown positive outcomes in individuals experiencing:
  • Migraines
  • Sports injuries 
  • Back and joint problems
  • Edema and swelling
  • Lack of circulation
  • Skin wound healing
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Stiffness 
  • Hip and ankle pain
  • Shoulder and neck pain

  • 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

Risks

PEMF is safe and has no significant side effects; there are no reports of problems associated with long-term exposure to the device’s electromagnetic fields. Many patients feel great after the PEMF therapy sessions. Some patients may experience either one of the following:
  • Oxidative stress
  • A fall in blood sugar levels
  • Dizziness 
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Fatigue on exertion
  • Increased urination  
  • Temporary increase in pain 
  • Decreased blood pressure
  • Loss of energy or interest in day-to-day activities
  • How to Prepare for PEMF Treatment

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.

  • After PEMF Therapy

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.
