PEMF (Wikipedia)

Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMFT, or PEMF therapy), also known as low field magnetic stimulation (LFMS) is the use of electromagnetic fields in an attempt to heal non-union fractures and depression. By 2007 the FDA had cleared several such stimulation devices.

In 2013 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned a manufacturer for promoting the device for unapproved uses such as cerebral palsy and spinal cord injury.

"PEMF" stands for Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy. This is a type of therapy that uses electromagnetic fields to improve health and wellness. It involves directing powerful, pulsed energy waves toward damaged or injured areas of the patient's body. These waves painlessly and quickly pass through the cells in the damaged region, increasing the spin of the electrons contained within them as a result. This can lead to faster cellular repair and improved communication within the cell, which can ultimately result in health benefits such as pain relief, improved inflammation, increased circulation, and enhanced muscle function.« Back to Glossary Index
