PEMF Q & A
What is PEMF?
PEMF uses a specialized device that converts electrical energy into a series of magnetic pulses. The team at Alternative Physical Medicine of Colorado directs the magnetic waves to targeted areas of your body.
As the magnetic energy safely goes through your skin and reaches cells deep below the surface, it stimulates your body’s natural electrical activity. As a result, treatment with PEMF:
- Boosts cellular energy
- Increases blood flow
- Maximizes cellular nutrition
- Triggers cellular repair
- Reduces inflammation
- Diminishes pain
- Supports healing
As treatment with PEMF eases your pain, you can avoid medications or reduce the dose and gradually stop taking your current pain medicine.
What problems are treated with PEMF?
PEMF can treat problems ranging from broken bones to torn tendons. The treatment’s ability to stimulate bone growth prompted the US Food and Drug Administration to approve PEMF for fractured bones that don’t heal.
Nearly any condition that causes pain, whether you have knee, shoulder, hip, neck, or back pain, can improve with PEMF treatment.
The team at Alternative Physical Medicine of Colorado may also recommend PEMF for conditions such as:
- Ligament and muscle injuries
- Chronic back pain
- Herniated discs
- Chronic pain
- Plantar fasciitis
- Diabetic foot ulcers
PEMF treats neuropathy and nerve-related conditions like diabetic foot ulcers by improving nerve health, including their ability to transmit nerve signals.
What should I expect during PEMF treatment?
Your provider may deliver PEMF treatment to your whole body using a mat or through small devices that target a specific area of your body. The length and frequency of PEMF vary for each person. You learn more about your treatment plan after your initial consultation.
Some patients say they can feel a slight tingling sensation during their PEMF treatment, but it never causes pain. This treatment is safe for nearly everyone. However, you may not be able to use PEMF if you’re pregnant, have epilepsy, or have a pacemaker or other electrical implants.
The team at Alternative Physical Medicine of Colorado helps you get the most out of your PEMF treatment by balancing other aspects of your life that affect healing. For example, they offer nutritional counseling because your body can’t fully heal without adequate hydration and nutrition.
