Family doctors and physicians in numerous fields are increasingly recommending PEMF therapy for their patients. If you are new to PEMF, then you may be wondering what it is or why it has become so popular among the medical community.
Here’s what you need to know.
PEMF’s Long History
Many patients are surprised to learn that PEMF has been in use since the 1970s. But like any medical practice, it can take years of research before a treatment becomes ubiquitously accepted by the medical community. Over the last five decades, PEMF has been the subject of hundreds of independent studies and clinical trials, conducted by leading physicians, researchers and universities around the world.
In study after study, researchers have concluded that PEMF therapy is an effective healing modality for an extensive array of health ailments and wellness goals.
Proven by Extensive Research
This growing body of research has led to a new rise in physicians recommending PEMF therapy for improved health in numerous fields of medicine.
Additionally, since PEMF is holistic and non-invasive, it is a safe alternative to riskier treatments, such as prescription medication or surgery. This makes it increasingly attractive to both physicians and their patients who want to avoid dependency on drugs or the risk of side effects with other treatment options.
What is PEMF Therapy?
PEMF stands for pulsed electromagnetic fields. The practice of PEMF therapy involves lying down on a specialized PEMF mat or using small applicators that emit low-level magnetic energy into the body. The frequency and intensity of these magnetic fields are very low, so the process is completely safe and painless. Most people barely feel anything at all.
But what happens inside the body is that the magnetic fields stimulate cellular activity. This aids the body in repairing and regenerating cells, bolstering your natural healing systems. Since damaged and dysfunctional cells can adversely affect your health in numerous ways, PEMF therapy can have a powerful impact on numerous medical conditions and ailments.
As such, PEMF has many clinical uses, which is another reason physicians recommend it across several medical disciplines, from family medicine to oncology.
Let’s look at just a few examples.
Doctor-Recommended Benefits of PEMF
Medical research has proven the effectiveness of PEMF for targeting many common health issues. Some of the most popular benefits of PEMF therapy include:
- Pain relief
- Reduced inflammation
- Recovery after injury
- Athletic performance
- Increased energy and vitality
- Improved circulation and heart health
- Bone strength
- Improved sleep quality
- Relief of stress, anxiety and depression
PEMF is also being increasingly used in patients with Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s, cancer, fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis and other conditions.
Because of PEMF’s ability to reduce inflammation and relieve pain, it is commonly used for arthritis, as well as Rheumatoid Arthritis, which is an autoimmune and inflammatory disease. In a 2023 paper published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, researchers wrote: “PEMF is showing promise as a treatment for autoimmune diseases by modulating proinflammatory cytokine expression and cell signaling pathways to restore them to normal homeostatic levels.”
