Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy

There is an amazing “new” treatment on the market which is actually not new but hundreds of years old – with brand new technological advancements to meet today’s needs. This treatment is called Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) and it is revolutionary in physical therapy and natural healing. At the Natural Choice Family Health Clinic in Mesa, Arizona, our natural doctors believe that where possible, nature can and does heal the body. This does not mean we won’t use medicine when needed. It means we take a natural approach and using PEMF is a very important part of our holistic approach.

500 years ago, magnetized pieces of the mineral “magnetite” were used to treat a variety of conditions, from epilepsy to diarrhea. Later, in the 19th century, magnetic ointments were produced to cure a wider spectrum of ailments including headaches, toothaches and burns.

In 2004, the Food and Drug Administration approved PEMF as a safe procedure. The treatment has been used for long term chronic pain sufferers, as well as post operatively for patients who have undergone spinal fusions. This technology, while it has been around since the 16th century, is still being explored as to its many uses and cures. Many documented trials have been performed by physiotherapists, rheumatologists and hospitals and the success of PEMF has been proven.

What Is Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy?

What Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy does is uses electrical energy to direct a series of magnetic pulses through injured tissue. Every electrical pulse creates a minute electrical signal within the body which then stimulates reparation of the cells. Convincing evidence has shown that these electrical currents do aid in the acceleration of bone formation. The length and scheduling of the treatment depends upon the condition being addressed. In studies, treatments were done for as little as 20 minutes per day or as much as 8-10 hours per day. Through the hundreds of blind and double-blind studies done, the treatment has no risks or nasty side effects like so many other treatments. It is completely non-invasive and safe. There is no surgery and no anesthesia and the treatment is performed in a comfortable office atmosphere on an out patient basis. The cost for treatment is far lower than surgeries. People all over the world suffer from a variety of rheumatological diseases that run the gamut from arthritis to acute lesions. PEMF can help you if you suffer from these conditions. Another important use of PEMF is for athletes. Whether there is chronic pain or not, or an acute injury or not, the use of PEMF to enhance the body is proven and effective. At The Natural Choice Family Health Clinic in Mesa, Arizona, we will assess your individual situation and design the program that’s right for you.

While skeptics of any natural healing methods will of course criticize the treatment and attempt to debunk it, the fact remains that hundreds of independent studies exist all over the world which show the efficacy of this treatment for a myriad of physiological situations. These studies are not paid for by “PEMF companies” (as many pharmaceutical “independent” studies are paid for by big pharmaceutical companies whose interest is always in the research going in their favor. These studies are truly independent, and if anything, performed by die hard “medicos” who would rather the technology did not work so as to support their beliefs in surgeries and drugs, and more traditional medical approaches.
