If you suffer from rheumatoid arthritis (RA), you know that there are a lot of things that can trigger a flare-up. The weather, stress, and even your diet can all affect your RA symptoms. But what if there was a way to help reduce the frequency and severity of your flares? Enter Pulsed Electromagnetic Frequency (PEMF) therapy.
PEMF therapy is a type of therapy that uses magnetic fields to help stimulate cells and reduce inflammation. PEMF therapy has been used for decades to treat a variety of conditions, and recent studies have shown that it may be effective in treating RA as well. In this guide, we’ll cover everything you need to know about PEMF therapy for rheumatoid arthritis, including how it works, what the benefits are, and where you can find a therapist near you.
How Does PEMF therapy for Rheumatoid Arthritis Work?
PEMF therapy works by exposing the body to pulsating electromagnetic fields. These fields help to stimulate cells and encourage healing. The theory behind PEMF therapy is that by stimulating the cells, the body will produce more ATP (adenosine triphosphate). ATP is responsible for delivering energy to the cells, and more ATP means more energy for the cells to heal.
Studies have shown that PEMF therapy can help to reduce inflammation and pain, two common symptoms of RA. In one study, participants who received PEMF therapy three times a week for eight weeks reported significant improvements in their symptoms, including reduced pain and stiffness. Participants in another study who received daily PEMF therapy also reported significant improvements in their RA symptoms.
What Are The Benefits of PEMF Therapy for RA?
In addition to reducing pain and inflammation, PEMF therapy has a number of other potential benefits for people with RA. These benefits include:
– Improving joint function
– Reducing fatigue
– Improving sleep quality
– Decreasing morning stiffness
– Reducing the need for medication
– Slowing disease progression
As mentioned above, studies have shown that PEMF therapy can offer all of these benefits, making it an attractive option for people with RA who are looking for relief from their symptoms.
One study published in the journal Rheumatology found that PEMF therapy improved RA symptoms, including pain and morning stiffness, after eight weeks of treatment. The study participants who received PEMF therapy also had a decrease in the number of tender and swollen joints and reported an improvement in overall well-being.
Another study published in the journal Clinical Rheumatology found that PEMF therapy was effective in reducing pain and improving physical function in people with RA. The study participants who received PEMF therapy also had a decrease in disease activity and an increase in quality of life.
A small study published in the Indian Journal of Physiotherapy & Occupational Therapy found that PEMF therapy helped reduce pain and stiffness in people with RA. The study participants who received PEMF therapy also had an improvement in grip strength and range of motion.
