Most often chronic pain is a combination of nutritional, structural, and emotional perspective; a combination of all these factors, and usually takes a multimodal approach to treatment. However, what can be done to immediately break the cycle of pain and address some of the underlying structural causes of either acute or chronic pain?
PEMT (Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Therapy): One of the 'big guns' in pain management. There have been more than 2,000 peer-reviewed, double-blind studies done all over the world on the benefits of this therapy.
PEMT has been shown to be effective at reducing both short-term and longterm chronic pain, It relieves pain by blocking pain signals, decreasing inflammation, increasing circulation, and increasing cellular flexibility.
As early as 194-, magnetic fields have been shown to influence the permeability of our cell membranes and act as a filter for the exchange of ions. In damage cells, that filter is not working appropriately and it allows an increase in the flow of sodium to the cells. As a result, fluid follows the sodium and the cell becomes bloated and swollen. The application of PEMT can help reestablish normal membrane potentials, which aid the removal of cellular waste and increase cellular oxygenation and nutrition.
PEMT also leads to faster cellular and tissue regeneration in areas such as bones, cartilage, blood vessels, nerves, and muscle tissues which means an increase in circulation, more nutrients and oxygen are supplied to the process of faster healing, increased ATP production, increased calcium transport, enhanced cellular, and tissue elasticity, decreased swelling, and an immune system boost.
May help in the following areas:
- Post-surgical pain, healing and edema
- Joint pain and mobility
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Decreased bone mineral density
- Circulatory enhancement
