This stands for pulsed electromagnetic frequencies. This technology has been around for over 100 years. For reasons that are a mystery, they were suddenly taken out of hospitals many years ago. The machine floods the body with electrons through a very brief, but intense, safe electromagnetic pulse. This causes cells to very quickly expanding contract, improving nutrient absorption. It has three FDA indications including bone healing, migraine and intractable depression.
We have found however, that it has many other applications. Since our cells run on electrons, there is virtually no cell in our body that cannot benefit from this technology. It works fantastically on all sorts of pain conditions. There have been anecdotal reports of regeneration of knee cartilage. Spinal stenosis, a very difficult if not untreatable condition, has shown improvement in some cases.
The treatment lasts anywhere from ½ to 1 hour typically. You can either sit in a chair or lie down on a massage table. We have a full-length mattress as well as smaller pads depending on the area being treated. Usually patients will see some improvement after a few sessions, but experienced practitioners know that if a client will commit to 10 hours or more, they may see their life absolutely transform. The magnetic pulse field can be adjusted to your comfort. When operating you will feel a jumping of your muscles with each pulse.
Our machine is probably the most powerful that can be obtained in the United States. There are weaker home versions, which do have some benefit, but would not generally yield the same results as in our office. Patients will report improvements in pain, energy and well-being.
The machine is safe but cannot be used if one has any implanted mechanical devices such as a pacemaker or morphine pump. Artificial joints, stents or other nonmechanical devices do not present a problem.
Although there are some FDA indications, for the most part PEMF is a noncovered service.
