If you’re just learning about pulsed electromagnetic field therapy you may be wondering if PEMF therapy is safe. You hear about the dangers of EMF (electromagnetic fields), or maybe you’re concerned about electricity being used as a form of treatment. Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy doesn’t send electricity into the body, and the electromagnetic fields used in PEMF therapy are completely safe.
Electromagnetic fields aren’t always harmful
While you hear a lot about the dangers of EMF, electromagnetic fields aren’t inherently dangerous. An electromagnetic field is just an area of energy from either man-made or naturally occurring sources. The earth produces a constant EMF that we’re subject to every day. Our wireless internet routers, phones, computers, and car radios all produce electromagnetic fields.
These EMFs are made up of non-ionizing energy, which means that they don’t harm atoms on a molecular level. Dangerous EMFs are made up of ionizing radiation, which carry sufficient energy to remove parts of an atom.
So are the electromagnetic fields used in PEMF therapy safe?
- WiFi generates EMFs between 2.4 and 5 GHz
- Mobile phones produce a frequency between 1.9 and 2.2 GHz
- Radio waves have a frequency between 11kHz and 1GHz
- PEMF Complete devices produce frequencies between 50 and 60 Hz
The EMFs used in PEMF therapy are safe and beneficial; they are a lower frequency than the EMFs generated by many everyday items.
PEMF therapy uses electromagnetic energy, not electricity
Pulse electromagnetic field therapy is not the same thing as electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) or electroshock therapy. Unlike ECT, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy does not send electrical signals into the body.
PEMF therapy uses electromagnetic energy rather than electricity. Electricity is only used to generate the EMFs, and patients never receive a shock or electrical signal. Instead, pulses of electromagnetic energy are sent deep into the body. These pulses alternately engage and relax the cells which is what promotes the health benefits of PEMF therapy.
PMEF therapy has FDA approval
PEMF therapy systems are wellness devices, and pulsed electromagnetic field therapy has been approved by the FDA for several different types of treatment:
- healing nonunion bone fractures
- muscle stimulation and urinary incontinence
- cervical fusion patients at high-risk for non-fusion
- depression and anxiety
- brain caner
The variety of FDA approved PEMF therapy treatment shows the versatility of pulsed electromagnetic field therapy.
PEMF therapy is safe and pain free. It’s an effective, non-invasive, and drug-free treatment option for a wide range of ailments, and it can promote wellness in those who are already healthy.
