For decades, medical professionals have been using controlled electrical stimulation to treat wounds and injuries to soft tissue, and to ease pain. You may have heard of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), an electrical stimulation-based treatment for back pain and a range of other conditions.
Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy is founded on similar research. It has been studied in multiple applications — and across the broad variety of studies, it showed promise as a safe, natural, noninvasive way to relieve pain.
This treatment works by delivering pulses of an electromagnetic field into your body. This pulsed field can be applied to a targeted area or your body as a whole. It basically works like a battery, recharging your cells.
As it pulses, the electromagnetic field encourages your cells to expand and contract, increasing circulation in the treated area. That improved circulation reduces swelling, helping to eliminate the pain caused by inflammation. The pulsing electromagnetic field also promotes the circulation and absorption of nutrients throughout your cells and supports tissue healing and regeneration.
Researchers are still finding new uses for pulsed electromagnetic field therapy. Some of the conditions that it has been shown to effectively treat include:
This treatment can also support stress release, improved sleep, and muscle relaxation
At Holistique Med Spa & Wellness Center, the team applies this treatment when it can help patients get relief from pain symptoms, when it can support healing in a targeted area, and when it can support overall wellness.
If you’re in any of these situations — you’re living with a painful condition, you have a specific injury that you want to help heal as quickly as possible, or you want to improve your wellness — pulsed electromagnetic field therapy could be right for you. Talk to your provider about your symptoms, and they can help you find the right treatment or treatments for you.
