What is PEMF Therapy?
Pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy is a powerful and recognized approach to pain management that uses magnets to create pulsing, moving energy. PEMF therapy is Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved to fuse bones and has been cleared in certain devices to reduce swelling and joint pain. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) work on the same physics.
This therapy has been used to treat pain and edema in soft tissue for over 60 years. The technology stemmed from radio frequency (RF) diathermy, which utilized a continuous electromagnetic field to produce heat in soft tissue. It is at the therapeutic safe end of the electromagnetic spectrum.
