Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) is a scientifically validated therapeutic modality.
Practitioners use it to help both humans and animals.
A PEMF device delivers magnetic fields through tissue to the target area. PEMF is not an electromagnetic therapy: it is a magnetic therapy.
There is evidence to support using PEMF to therapeutically support:
- multiple sclerosis
- bone fractures
- ligament injuries
- cartilage injuries
- nerve regeneration
- delayed union fractures
- chronic venus ulcers
PEMF applies magnetic fields either through a mat or a coil.
Healing frequencies appear to lie in the 15 Hz to 75 Hz range at microtesla and militesla intensities.
