I see you there, sitting on the side of your bed, hesitating before standing up. You’re waiting to see if the same ache you have been experiencing for years is there after 18 holes of golf or a particularly tough session at the gym or that long run yesterday. Even if that old injury isn’t keeping you from doing what you love, chances are it is affecting your life more than you let on. You may have even seen a doctor who told you that surgery was the only option for achieving a full recovery. You may have decided that it’s “not that bad” or “I’ll just live with it.” Fortunately, ignoring it and surgery are not your only two options for healing an old sports injury. Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) may be the answer and here’s why.
PEMF is Based on Your Body’s Own Processes
Every cell in the human body works as an independent electrical circuit holding an electrical charge. When the charge is too low, the cell deteriorates and the person becomes sick. PEMF uses tens of thousands of volts of electricity pulsed at a billionth of a second in order to penetrate the cell wall and recharge the cell.
PEMF Stimulates Tissue Healing and Strengthen Bones
The PEMF process causes electromagnetic energy to penetrate the cell wall and cause it to contract. This process forces the cell to expel toxins, circulate nutrients, reduce pain and inflammation, and help the body heal its own tissues and strengthen bones. Imagine your cells are like grapes, firm, full of vitality and plump. Now, imagine that same grape is drained of all of its life-giving water. It eventually becomes a raisin, no longer able to receive water and nutrients to maintain its vitality. PEMF allows the cells to remain vital, healthy and able to receive the nutrients and water they need to survive. Even old injuries can be healed as muscle, tissue and bone cells are brought back to life.
PEMF is Non-Invasive and Has Pleasant Side-Effects
Unlike surgery and pain medications, PEMF is non-invasive and has been shown to have rather pleasant side-effects. Patients are able to lay down and rest while the PEMF machine does all of the work. In just a few minutes, you can return to work and your normal activities without any recovery or down time. Best of all, PEMF has been known to have rather pleasant side-effects. Patients have reported feeling less stress, more relaxed and better able to sleep. Many feel more energy with better blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Most importantly, patients who have tried PEMF experience less pain and inflammation and better healing, even of old injuries.
