MG33 PEMF (Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field Therapy) at Spine and Laser Center

Woman with arms outstretchedPEMF is a new approach to pain management that uses magnets to create pulsing, moving energy. These energy waves could change the way your body copes with pain. Learn more about this new treatment. Could it work for you?

Magnetic resonance (PEMF) is not a trend, it comes with decades of clinical studies

Pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy is FDA-approved to fuse bones and has been cleared in certain devices to reduce swelling and joint pain. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) work on the same physics.

This therapy has been used to treat pain and edema in soft tissue for over 60 years. The technology stemmed from radio frequency (RF) diathermy, which utilized a continuous electromagnetic field to produce heat in soft tissue.

A moving – or resonating – magnetic field can create currents without heating and thus directly alter cellular signaling. It has been firmly established that tissues including blood, muscle, ligaments, bone and cartilage respond to biophysical input, including electrical and electromagnetic fields. New studies show that with the proper field intensity and frequency, treatment with PEMF appears to be disease-modifying. The stimulation of TGF? may be a mechanism by which PEMF favorably affects cartilage homeostasis. Through calcium-calmodulin-dependent pathways, PEMF may also increase nitric oxide activity.

Fully functioning and healthy living tissue is alive with energy created by the movement of ions. In a healthy, optimally functioning cell, the membrane maintains a balance of ions inside and outside of the cell membrane – a balance that creates a measurable charge of bio-electricity necessary for normal cell metabolism.

Anything that contributes to the lowered energy state of the cell – including stress and injury – affects it’s ability to function to the fullest.

Unlike direct electrical stimulation, these powerful, ultra-short electromagnetic pulses have the ability to safely pass right through living tissue, and indirectly provide bio-available energy that triggers a cascade of events at cellular level.

Will help manage pain with where there is evidence of stress, pain, inflammation, injury, and swelling.

Magnetic therapy is a safe, non-invasive method of applying magnetic fields to the body for therapeutic purposes. Whether used independently or in addition to your current treatment, magnet therapy provides effective, natural pain relief for a wide range of conditions, making it an excellent choice for anyone. It helps speed the healing process and can improve quality of sleep without any adverse side effects.

Statements About PEMF

“I feel pulsed electromagnetic therapy may be one of the greatest discoveries in the history of medicine.”
– Dr. David Williams, Alternatives for the Health Conscious Individual – (March 2004)

“In all living things energy is more fundamental than chemistry.”
– James Oschman, author of Energy Medicine

“This idea of manipulating cellular activity with magnetically induced electrical currents is looking like one of the hottest new fields around.”
– Andy Bassett, MD on the future of PEMF, Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies

“All human activity is conditioned by the earth’s magnetic environment. Once the connection is made between the magnetic aspects of the biophysical chemistry of human bio-organism, indeed all planetary biology, then it becomes easier to conceive of the body as a bioelectric/magnetic apparatus, subject to all physical laws of magnetism.”
– Jiri Jerabek, MD, PhD & William Pawluk, MD, M.Sc. Book – Magenetic Therapy In Eastern Europe A review of 30 years of research
