PEMF – Use the therapy on your athlete that NASA uses on theirs
Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field Therapy
What is PEMF?
PEMF is pulsing magnets at a naturally low frequency. Electromagnetic energy waves that that rebalance the body, allowing it to better cope with pain, recuperate, and circulate oxygenated blood throughout the tissues. This therapy at the cellular level allows your horse to not only heal faster but feel good too.
PEMF Therapy has been clinically proven to be effective with:
|reduce inflammation||post surgery|
How does PEMF work?
The pulsed electromagnetic fields activate cellular ions (ions contain proteins, send signals, and bring in nutrients) and increase the ability to store and transfer energy within (ATP of the mitochondria) our cells. These are the power generators of cells and when they are charged up and working at their best, they positively influence the blood supply. When blood cells are irritated they get stacked (they aren’t supposed to be), the magnetic fields open up the blood vessels and break apart the cells (as they are meant to be), allowing the healing process to begin. The 50 trillion cells intelligently communicate with each other faster than the speed of light. The health of your horse’s body is dependent on the health of his/her cells, since every organ and all tissues are composed of cells. With healthy cells and healthy blood the body has what it needs to heal itself as nature intended.
How can pulsed electromagnetic therapy help ease pain?
Electromagnets effect the nerve cells. Nerve cells are electrically charged cells. The magnetic fields effect how they fire and quiet them down, increasing circulation and aiding healing. With quieter nerves and increased circulation beginning the healing process, inflammation (the body’s way of protecting an ‘injury’) is reduced.
How long does it take to feel the results from PEMF Therapy?
Just like with people every horse is different, and it depends on the age of the horse, pre existing conditions and the severity of the injury. Some may show a difference after or even during the first session, others may take a week or even 10 days to feel the benefits. PEMF Therapy is cumulative, the longer and more frequent the use, the stronger your horse’s internal environment will become and remain. For an injury I recommend a minimum of 3 sessions within 7 days, after which you can assess the horse’s response and decide on an appropriate course of treatment. For chronic conditions I recommend 2 sessions as close together as possible and then once a week for a month to assess the response of the horse.
Is PEMF safe ?
PEMF is approved by the FDA and Health Canada and has been used in the medical field for fusing broken bones, speeding up the healing time after a sprain, post op pain and swelling/inflammation for over 20 years.
PEMF is complimentary:
- Using PEMF directly before the chiropractor or massage therapist will increase the benefits of those therapies. By first optimizing the tissues and increasing the blood flow the body is in a more responsive state.
