Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field Therapy (PEMF)

What is Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field (PEMF) therapy?

Every cell in the human body is essentially a battery that carries an electrical charge, which is what allows it to function. As with any battery, if the charge is low, then function and performance are also inherently low. PEMF therapy can help to “recharge” your cells, thus aiding the body’s natural healing process. This can lead to improved function by allowing an increased expulsion of toxins, as well as better nutrient and oxygen flow into the cells.

The PEMF effect essentially provides a “cellular exercise” effect, very similar to physical exercise. With consistent therapy, patients can see great improvements in cellular performance, and thus, in their overall health and well-being.

PEMF Therapy Helping Pain

A primary concern of low cellular function is impaired tissue recovery, which we see in chronic pain and acute injury cases. When an injury occurs, or a strain is put on the body over time, there is an extra demand placed on the cells to repair these tissues. However, if the cellular charge is low, there is not enough power within the cells to perform this type of function, therefore leaving the damaged tissue in a state of inflammation, pain and dysfunction. PEMF therapy can aid in the body’s recovery process by supporting healthy joint and cartilage function, as well as supporting healthy bone structure.

Additional ways PEMF therapy can help

By creating better functioning, healthier cells, PEMF therapy is able to provide support for:

  • Stimulated tissue healing
  • Healthy bone structure
  • Increased immune system support
  • Reduced Inflammation
  • Stress Reduction
  • Enhanced production of calming neurotransmitters
  • Decreased nervous irritability
  • Increased relaxation
  • Deeper & more restorative sleep
  • Increased expulsion of toxins
  • Improved nutrient absorption
  • Reduced post-exercise pain
  • Reduced absent-mindedness

What are some of our patients saying about PEMF?

My hip and leg pain was significantly improved within one session. After only a few sessions, I have been sleeping like a baby for the first time in years. I have been getting deeper sleep with longer and more numerous dreams. Life is good!” -DB

I can say for sure my energy is 20% better than it has been in a decade, and I’m just getting started with this PEMF thing. I love that it seems to give me a calm, steady energy. My sleep is fantastic." -DF

I can’t believe it. I’ve only had two treatments and I can cross my legs for the first time in years! My knees would never let me do that before today!” -AC

With just ONE PEMF session I had 50% improvement in my knee. I am talking: less pain, better range of motion and faster recovery after having played basketball for the first time in a couple of years. I had ACL surgery on my right knee 14 years ago, and it’s never been good since. I was lucky to get in to see Dr. Siegel the day after playing ball and I walked out after one session amazed at how much and how rapidly the PEMF helped me. There is no cartilage left so I assumed my knee could never feel better but I was wrong. This therapy is awesome.” -LH
