How can Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy help me achieve better health? Basic actions of magnetic fields reduce muscle tension, improve circulation, stimulate the immune system, improve cell function, help the body to detoxify, improve the uptake of nutrients, balance acupuncture meridians, improve sleep, reduce stress, balance the endocrine system, reduce inflammation, regenerate tissues. Better health is something for which we all strive, it means living longer, better lives. Working toward better health is a daily activity, and requires both physical and mental maintenance. Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy can keep our bodies in tune, helping to wash away the physical and mental effects of stress, and keeping our organs running more efficiently.
Back Pain, Lumbar Disc Disease, and PEMFs
PEMFs should be considered before any procedural or surgical intervention. So you might ask, is there evidence to support the use of PEMFs 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 whole-body 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 PEMF 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 will help your back pain become more manageable and enjoy a better life.
How can magnetic fields help with pain?
Basic actions of magnetic fields include, Reducing muscle tension, Improving circulation, Stimulating the immune system, Improving cell function, Helping the body to detoxify Improving the uptake of nutrients, Balancing acupuncture meridians, Improving sleep, Reducing stress, Balancing the endocrine system, Reducing inflammation and Regenerating tissues. Magnetic fields have been found, in animals and in humans, to be equivalent to about 10mgs of morphine in terms of the amount of pain able to be reduced. If the body is healthy and balanced, many of the actions of magnetic fields will be ignored. The body will always decide what it needs, and that is the beauty of magnetic fields – they only act to stimulate the body’s own systems.
How can magnetic fields improve sleep? Basic actions of magnetic fields: Reducing muscle tension Improving circulation, Stimulating the immune system, Improving cell function, Helping the body to detoxify, Improving the uptake of nutrients, Balancing acupuncture meridians, Improving sleep Reducing stress, Balancing the endocrine system, Reducing inflammation, Regenerating tissues. We have all suffered from a poor night’s sleep. According to the National Center on Sleep Disorders, more than 40% of Americans report suffering from one or more nights of insomnia during any given year. But when a sleep disorder becomes frequent, its effects can be devastating – physically, mentally, and emotionally. Chronic insomnia, bouts of brief, restless sleep – an hour here, three hours there – lasting beyond three weeks into months or even years, has become increasingly common, with upwards of 10% of Americans afflicted. The ill effects of insomnia can be immediate after just one sleepless night: memory capacity and speech control diminish, irritability spikes, hormones can become unbalanced, vision may become blurry, body temperature may go haywire. Magnetic fields (PEMF) iMRS2000 increase slow wave activity by directly effecting the serotonin system, including melatonin production and secretion are inherent and self-sustained, they can be adjusted (or entrained) to the local environment by external cues like daylight. Such entrainment is what allows you to ‘reset’ your sleep patterns when traveling to a different time zone, for example. In much the same way a radio receiver changes frequency to match that of a dominant frequency, so our brains are capable of becoming entrained by a dominant frequency. To this end, low-frequency magnetic field therapies are able to help the brain entrain down (causing drowsiness), and if applied through the night, can help the brain stay in a sleeping state more easily. Additionally, magnetic field stimulation can improve sleep by stimulating the hypothalamus, which controls circadian and sleep rhythms. Magnetic fields (PEMF) iMRS2000 increase slow wave activity by directly effecting the serotonin system, including melatonin production and secretion.
PEMF therapy and sports injury recovery
PEMF’s used by athletes to maximize function of the body and at the same time reduce the risk of sports injury and to help the body recover faster from any injuries. Athletes should be using whole body magnetic stimulation before and after workouts, tryouts, and any level of competition. Using PEMFs before competition causes the body to be optimized in its function. This will produce better performance. It’s been found that muscles work harder, longer and recover faster with magnetic stimulation. Athletes often have to compete and work out despite their injuries, large and small. This is why regular use of magnetic fields is so important to any high level, or even weekend, athletes. PEMF’s accelerates even subtle healing, allowing the athlete to be healthier, stronger and perform better.
