PEMF (Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field) Therapy: Benefits & How It Works

Holtorf Medical Group

Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field therapy sends magnetic energy (via waves) into the body that works with your natural magnetic field in order to improve repair and recovery processes.

Understanding the Body’s Electromagnetic Field

The body’s magnetic field is generated by all of its internal electrical activity. In fact, the body naturally conducts electricity as every organ and cell has its own field. These fields are present because the body produces electrical activity via several different types of cells including neurons, endocrine cells, and muscle cells (all of which are called “excitable cells”). As with all electricity, this activity creates a magnetic field.

It is important to note that the body’s electrical activity primarily occurs in the cell membrane. A typical healthy cell has a “transmembrane” potential of 80-100 millivolts. In comparison, a sick cell or a cancer cell has a transmembrane potential as low as 20 or 25 millivolts. When a cell becomes damaged, the voltage drops, and when the membrane voltage is low, the membrane channels do not function properly. This leads to poor cell communication and quickly cascades into potential health problems and illnesses.

This is what PEMF therapy addresses.

How Does PEMF Therapy Work?

PEMF therapy sends magnetic energy into the body that helps increase the body’s electrolytes and ions. In turn, this leads to electrical changes in the body that help improve cellular functions and activity. Because any disruption in electrical currents can lead to dysfunction and/or illness, PEMF therapy helps restore this disruption.

In other words, PEMF therapy works with the body’s natural recovery processes in order to help improve cellular repair and even alleviate chronic pain.

Benefits of PEMF Therapy

According to over 2,000 studies, because PEMF therapy provides restoration and healing on a cellular level, there is a multitude of benefits including:

  • Reduced (chronic) inflammation
  • Improved injury recovery time
  • Better circulation
  • Alleviated (chronic) pain
  • Improved oxygenation in tissue
  • Enhanced cellular repair and recovery
  • Improved immune system
  • Better quality of sleep
  • Improved muscle relaxation and performance

Who Can Benefit from PEMF Therapy?

Anyone can benefit from PEMF therapy as it can help restore your overall feeling of wellness but it may be of particular interest to those who suffer from:

  • Pain or dysfunction in their ankles, back, elbows, hips, knees, or shoulders
  • Chronic inflammation in joints or the soft tissues
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome or Fibromyalgia
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Osteopenia or osteoporosis
  • Poor wound healing
  • Chronic pain
