Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy; it sounds pretty intimidating. Those who are just learning about PEMF therapy tend to have a lot of questions. One of the questions that gets asked a lot is, Does PEMF therapy hurt? The short answer? No. PEMF therapy does not hurt or cause pain, and pulsed electromagnetic field therapy is even used for pain reduction.
There’s some general confusion and a lack of understanding about PEMF therapy. Once you learn more about PEMF therapy you will see why PEMF does not hurt you.
Confusion about PEMF therapy
Most of the misinformation surrounding pulsed electromagnetic field therapy comes from a lack of personal experience. The use of pulsed electromagnetic field therapy continues to grow, and many wellness professionals – including chiropractic doctors, physical trainers, and massage therapists — now offer PEMF therapy. However, most haven’t tried PEMF therapy yet.
PEMF therapy is different from TENS. No electricity ever enters the body or even so much as touches the skin during pulsed electromagnetic field therapy. PEMF therapy uses electromagnetic energy instead of electricity.
PEMF therapy is entirely safe. The only contraindication for PEMF therapy is for patients who have an electrical implant. The electromagnetic fields used in PEMF therapy could affect devices such as insulin pumps, pacemakers, or other electrical implants.
Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy is FDA approved for treating migraine, depression, healing nonunion fractures, and several other health conditions.
PEMF therapy doesn’t hurt, it heals.
Again, PEMF therapy does not cause pain; it’s used to treat pain, instead. Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy works by triggering the body’s natural healing processes. It promotes wellness, good cell health, and proper cell function. Treatments are soothing and relaxing, and many people even use PEMF therapy to reduce stress.
PEMF therapy is often described with words like “tingling” or, not surprisingly, “pulsating.” You might see movement in the area being treated. The sensation is much milder than massage.
Some worry about the electromagnetic fields used in PEMF therapy. Electromagnetic energy is all around us. EMFs are produced by man-made objects, but they also occur naturally. Even the earth produces a natural electromagnetic field.
The EMF frequencies used in PEMF therapy are very low. In fact, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy produces less electromagnetic radiation than the phone in your pocket, the WiFi signal that you spend most of your day in, and even your car radio.
There’s ample evidence from clinical trials and research to show that PEMF is a safe and effective form of treatment for many health issues. Call 877-473-6377, or contact PEMF Complete online, to learn more about PEMF therapy and PEMF systems.
