Back Pain, Lumbar Disc Disease, and PEMFs
Pulsating Electromagnetic Therapy should be considered before any procedural or surgical intervention. So you might ask, is there evidence to support the use of Magnetic Resonance Therapy for back pain? Pain in the head was on average 4.6 before and 2.1 after treatment in those receiving magnetic field treatment, and 4.2/3.5 in controls. Neck pain was on average 6.3/1.9 as opposed to 5.3/4.6, and pain in the shoulder/arm was 2.4/0.8 as opposed to 2.8/2.2 (p < 0.03 for all regions). So, they concluded, that PEMFs appear to have a considerable and statistically significant potential for reducing pain in cases of lumbar radiculopathy and the whiplash syndrome. In this study the PEMF used was the iMRS2000. The polarity was switched every 2 minutes, with the iMRS2000 cushion being applied each time for 16 minutes and the iMRS Mat for 8 minutes. Extended use should produce better results than studied in this care project. Forty patients suffering from lumbar radiculopathy due to lumbar disc prolapse were randomly assigned to one of two groups: a study group that included 20 patients who received Electro Magnetic Therapy therapy and a control group that included 20 patients who received placebo treatment. Both groups were evaluated at baseline and after 3 weeks by. Findings were compared before and after treatment. Significant differences were observed between both groups before and after application of PEMF therapy relative to overall pain, Low Back Pain, personal care, lifting, walking, sitting, sleeping, social life and employment. Even more importantly, were the objective measures of improvements in tissue pain related brain sensation perceived effects. Studies have confirmed that the iMRS2000 Systems will help your back pain become more manageable and enjoy a better life.
