What Is PEMF Therapy(Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field)? - South Arkansas Sun

I’ve been fascinated by PEMF therapy, a non-invasive modality, to help recharge the body’s electrical systems. PEMF stands for Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Fields.

If you want to learn more about EMFs, I've interviewed a geobiologist and a mitigation expert. PEMFs use direct current (DC), which may be less taxing for the body.

Experts have tried PEMF therapy on many conditions, as you’ll see below. There are two ways to do it: passive and active.

Passive vs. Active The most common way to do PEMF therapy is passive. With passive therapy, you can either sit on a PEMF mat or put pads (that have a coil inside) directly on the area of complaint.

Science has started to identify the unique ways in which PEMF technology recharges our electrical systems and boosts cellular health.

We are still learning everything that PEMFs do in the body. Here’s what we do know it helps with: Growth factors Protein expression Stem cell activity

Joint Health The most well-known therapeutic effects of PEMF are for joint dysfunction. It looks promising for both acute and chronic pain from sports injuries to autoimmune diseases.

Wound Healing Another area PEMF appears to affect is healing skin injuries and lesions. Some of the notable improvements have been for diabetic wounds and frostbite.
