If you suffer from acute or chronic low back pain, you’ll try just about anything to find relief. You’ve probably tried heat, ice, over-the-counter and prescription medications, chiropractic care, physical therapy, and more. But have you tried PEMF therapy?
PEMF is a cutting-edge, non-invasive, safe, and effective way to reduce inflammation and promote natural healing for low back problems.
PEMF stands for pulsed electromagnetic frequency therapy. PEMF devices emit electromagnetic fields that pulsate at specific frequencies. These frequencies can penetrate deep into the body’s tissues to promote healing.
How PEMF Works
PEMF for low back pain works by exposing the body to electromagnetic fields. These magnetic fields stimulate cellular repair and encourage the production of enzymes and proteins essential for cell function. Each pulse explicitly promotes mitochondria respiration and reproduction, aids in the production of a protein called calcineurin (which supports your immune system), and stimulates the epigenetic cascades (supporting the production of the mitochondria).
PEMF therapy treats various conditions, including dysfunctional tissue, inflammation, and circulation problems. PEMF devices are often used in therapeutic exercise, physical therapy, and rehabilitation settings. Many people, including Tony Robbins and Ben Greenfield, use portable PEMF devices.
Some scientific evidence supports the use of PEMF for low back pain. One study found that PEMF therapy effectively reduced pain and improved function in people with chronic low back issues. Another study found that PEMF therapy effectively reduced inflammation in the lower back.
A study published in the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation found that PEMF therapy was an effective treatment for chronic low back pain. The study participants who received PEMF therapy reported significant reductions in pain intensity and disability. Additionally, the participants who received PEMF therapy were less likely to experience side effects than those who received other forms of treatment, such as medication or surgery.
Possible Side Effects of PEMF for Low Back Pain Therapy
PEMF for Low Back Pain therapy is generally well-tolerated, and side effects are rare. However, after treatment, some people may experience dizziness, nausea, or headache. If you experience any side effects, they should resolve within a few hours.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy is a safe, effective, promising treatment option if you suffer from low back pain.
