The Benefits of Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy
Sep 16, 2021
One of the several recovery therapies we offer at Re-Gen Fitness and Recovery is called Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy. Here, we use a mat containing coils within it that produce pulsing electromagnetic fields. These fields help to stimulate neural and cellular activity within the body leading to numerous clinical health benefits. For instance, research has shown that PEMF therapy can improve cognition, memory, sleep, and motor control, including balance and coordination. These improvements are vitally important for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, Parkinson’s, and multiple sclerosis, among other neurological and neuromotor disorders. However, even the normal aging process results in detriments to cognitive function and balance, and PEMF therapy can be of great benefit in reducing and reversing these changes.
PEMF therapy has also been shown to improve nerve regeneration, aiding in recovery from spinal or peripheral nerve damage and reducing pain from neuropathies such as fibromyalgia, peripheral artery disease and diabetes. Research has also regularly shown that PEMF is able to decrease pain and increase mobility in individuals suffering from arthritis, tendinitis, migraines, and joint and muscle pain. One of its most regular uses is post-surgery to improve bone and wound healing, as well as for its ability to reduce post-operative pain. Finally, PEMF therapy has been used for many psychological impairments, including being shown to improve depression, anxiety, and symptoms of PTSD.
We are one of the few places that offers pulsed electromagnetic field therapy in Omaha, and you can see why we promote the use of it, as many of these disorders can significantly decrease quality of life and the ability to participate in daily activities. This is why, at Re-Gen, we offer our PEMF therapy in conjunction with our hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which enhances the impacts of both therapies. Here, we place our PEMF mat within a hyperbaric chamber, resulting in improved cellular function, increased blood flow throughout the body, and enhanced neural activity, all resulting in vast improvements to overall health and mobility.
If you are experiencing problems with pain, brain function or balance, or you just want to maximize your coordination and cognition, come into Re-Gen today for a consultation!
