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 75 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?
Every animal is different, in some cases you can see the benefits directly after or even during the first session. Others may take a week or even 10 days for us to see the benefits in our horse. PEMF Therapy is cumulative within the body, the longer and more frequent the use, the better the internal environment will become and remain. As an average guideline horses with chronic pain should plan to use PEMF Therapy for 10-12 weeks, once or twice a week. Those suffering from a recent injury or acute pain should plan to use PEMF Therapy for 2-3 weeks, 3-5 times per week.
Is PEMF safe and who should NOT use it?
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.
