What is Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF)?

 

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF), also called Pulsed Magnetic Therapy, is a reparative technique most commonly used in the field of orthopaedics for the treatment of non-union fractures, failed fusions, and congenital pseudarthrosis. PEMF uses electrical energy to direct a series of magnetic pulses through injured tissue whereby each magnetic pulse induces a tiny electrical signal that stimulates cellular repair. Many studies have also demonstrated the effectiveness of PEMF in healing soft-tissue wounds; suppressing inflammatory responses at the cell membrane level to alleviate pain, and increasing range of motion. The value of pulsed electromagnetic field therapy has been shown to cover a wide range of conditions, with well documented trials carried out by hospitals, rheumatologists and physiotherapists. There are several electrical stimulation therapy devices, approved by the FDA, that are widely available to patients for use. These devices provide an additive solution that aid in bone growth and repair.

How can BEMER therapy help you?

In our Narrabeen office we have a BEMER SLT unit which is a powerful therapy unit with a laser. We also have a BEMER 3000 mat for home hire. In general we recommend daily treatment at home with the BEMER 3000 backed up by 1-2 SLT sessions per week.

BEMER therapy uses an exactly dosed pulsating electromagnetic field to stimulate cellular metabolism, circulation and oxygen uptake. It helps you cells to be healthy.

Treatment programs are set individually and generally change over the course of the treatment. There are no known contra-indications to this therapy.

Please view the video for more information on how the therapy works.

BEMER SLT Therapy

BEMER therapy can be used for general health improvement, cosmetic improvement of skin, through to wound and bone healing.

In our office we generally use it for:

  • Reducing inflammation and swelling;
  • Relief for sufferers of chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome, Rheumatoid arthritis;
  • Skin conditions such as acne or psoriasis;
  • Wound healing and scar tissue;
  • Boosting your immune system and fighting infections post-operation; and
  • Speeding up wound healing and recovery times.

Tennis Ace, Roger Federer, and Olympic Gold Medal Snowboarder Torah Bright use this therapy to speed up recovery times after training and competitions.

It attracts over 300,000 medical practitioners, clinics, hospitals, and private users worldwide. Although popular in Europe it is still relatively new in Australia.
