As a growing body of medical research continues to support the effectiveness of PEMF therapy, more
physicians and medical practitioners are offering it to their patients as an alternative healing modality.
PEMF, or pulsed electromagnetic fields, have shown to be effective at supporting cellular health in a wide range of clinical settings and medical studies. By aiding the body at the cellular level, PEMF therapy has been shown to reduce inflammation, eliminate pain, improve sleep and increase energy, among a myriad of other health benefits.
If you’re evaluating options for your medical practice, here are 4 reasons to look at PEMF.
1) Diverse health benefits & clinical uses
PEMF can deliver a host of health benefits, enabling physicians to provide an effective form of care for numerous ailments.
Many common medical conditions stem from problems occurring at the cellular level. Damaged and dysfunctional cells can lead to (or be a symptom of) weakened immune systems, fatigue, poor circulation and pain – all of which can contribute to an even wider range of serious medical issues.
By stimulating cells with low-level magnetic energy, PEMF can aid the body’s healing systems in several ways:
- Reduced inflammation
- Pain relief (including from injuries, arthritis, osteoporosis and other ailments)
- Increased energy and vitality
- Improved sleep quality
- Bone health
- Muscle strength
- Improved circulation
- Heart health
In a study conducted by Mayo Clinic on the benefits of PEMF on vascular health, researchers emphasized that “the potential clinical uses of pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF) are extensive.”
2) Viable option for alternative or supplemental care
Physicians are increasingly recommending PEMF therapy as an alternative to traditional treatment options, especially when such treatments are not producing results for patients. Similarly, practitioners also suggest PEMF as a supplement to other treatments to be used concurrently.
PEMF is also a popular option for patients who are hesitant about taking some prescription medications, particularly when it comes to painkillers with higher risks of side effects and dependence. PEMF allows physicians to offer patients an effective alternative that involves no dangerous drugs.
3) Quick and simple sessions
PEMF is easy to administer in any clinical setting (or even in the patient’s home). For most patients, sessions are only about 30 minutes and involve simply lying on a specialized PEMF mat. Read: Using a PEMF Machine at Home
Because of the simplicity of PEMF therapy, patients do not need supervision while they lie on the mat. This frees up your staff to treat other patients, thus increasing your practice’s productivity and efficiency.
4) Proven patient-centered care
With a rising focus on patient-centered care, physicians are adjusting their approach to put patients’ goals and wishes first, while still providing effective options that produce desired medical outcomes. PEMF therapy can play a vital role in this approach as an additional tool in doctors’ treatment arsenal. By presenting PEMF as another option to meet patients’ medical needs, physicians gain trust with their patients while still being the driving force of expertise behind their care.
