Longmont, Colorado – A study published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) suggests that not only does pulsed electromagnetic field therapy have no known harms, but this therapy can effectively be used to treat a variety of different conditions, including chronic pain.
The study was academically rigorous, using a framework that was “randomized, double-blind, [and] placebo-controlled.” While it is likely that more research is needed on the matter, the results of the study revealed a statistically significant correlation between receiving PEMF therapy and lasting relief from chronic pain.
In the study’s full write-up, the research team later went on to explain, “The rapidly expanding field of biomagnetics potentially offers a variety of therapeutic modalities that may be of clinical value, especially in patients who have pain that is resistant to more traditional therapeutics.”
The need for alternative treatments, it seems, is what has helped fuel this industry’s growth. Widespread concerns about the dangers of many pain medications, along with the extreme costs that come with certain surgeries, have caused many Americans suffering from chronic pain to look for pain-free and affordable options.
One of the leaders in the pulsed electromagnetic therapy market, Longmont’s own Pulsed Harmonix cites several benefits of receiving PEMF therapy. These benefits include reduced inflammation, increased circulation, faster healing, pain relief, and improved mobility.
PEMF devices, such as the True Pulse A2000, have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for ordinary use. While arthritis and chronic pain have been the most common reasons these devices are used, other conditions, such as depression, have also shown potential for PEMF treatment.
A PEMF device, which weighs about 4 pounds and has a shape that is similar to a yoga mat, can easily be used in the comfort of your own home. After receiving treatment on a consistent basis, many people reported feeling significantly better. There were also no observable side effects associated with this treatment, which is likely why PEMF therapy has become such an appealing option.
The growth of the PEMF therapy market has helped offer relief to many people who thought they were out of options. As the research available continues to grow, the number of known possible uses for bio magnetics will likely increase as well.
