PEMF, or pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, is one of the many therapies offered at our chiropractic practice in Woodbury, MN. It has been shown to reduce pain, swelling, and inflammation. It has also been shown to improve circulation, cellular metabolism, and energy. These are crucial when recovering from an injury.
PEMF involves directing, pulsed electromagnetic waves toward damaged or injured areas. These waves quickly pass through the cells in the damaged region giving the damaged cells a boost in energy. The increase in energy helps the injured cells repair themselves. As a result, you have a decrease in bruising, swelling, inflammation, and pain!
Typical treatment is around 15 minutes. Treatment can be performed seated or lying down. Loops are applied to the injured areas. Once the device is turned on, you may feel a pulsing sensation and some soreness in injured areas. This is not a bad thing! This tells us that the PEMF loops are appropriately placed, and the injured areas are receiving the waves.
