What Does PEMF Mean and How Does PEMF Therapy Work?

PEMF stands for pulsed electromagnetic field. Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, also known as PEMF therapy or PEMFT, is a safe and effective treatment option with a wide range of applications. There are many different uses for pulsed electromagnetic field therapy including recovery and healing, injury prevention, and promoting good mental and physical health. Here’s a look at how PEMF therapy works and common uses for PEMF therapy.

How PEMF therapy works

A pulsed electromagnetic field system includes a main PEMF device and a PEMF coil. You control the system through the PEMF device, which sends electrical signals to the coil. This coil might be a paddle, a mat, a loop, a hoof box, or some other mechanism. The type of PEMF coil you need depends on how you intend on using your system.

The coil produces the electromagnetic fields, or EMFs, for which PEMF therapy is named. Your system generates these fields of electromagnetic energy in waves or pulses. These pulses alternately engage and relax the cells in the body — effectively massaging the cells.

There’s electromagnetic energy all around us at all times. You find EMFs produced in nature and by man-made devices. The reason that PEMF therapy works is because of the duration of the treatments, the concentration of the energy, and the pulsing and the frequency of the electromagnetic fields.

PEMF therapy sends electromagnetic pulses deep through the tissues of the body. Electricity is only used to power the device and create the EMF pulses. Electrical signals never enter your body. Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy offers a safe, painless, and effective treatment with wide-reaching health benefits.

How PEMF therapy improves your health

Chiropractors, massage therapists, physical therapists, trainers and many other wellness professionals offer PEMF therapy. Equine trainers and veterinarians offer PEMF therapy as well. Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy works on the molecular level to promote good cell health and proper cell function for both humans and animals. Here are just a few of the health benefits of PEMF therapy.

  • Improved immune response
  • Reduced recovery from exercise and physical competition
  • Reduced recovery time from illness and injury
  • Increased nutrient absorption
  • Improved circulation
  • Increased cellular oxygenation
  • Reduced pain, swelling, and inflammation
  • Wound healing and tissue repair
  • Improve mood and reduce stress
  • Promotes wellness and good overall health
  • Improved mobility and range of motion

The FDA approves PEMF therapy as a treatment option for several health issues including anxiety and depression, healing nonunion bone fractures, muscle stimulation, and migraine headaches.
