PEMF stands for Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field therapy; using this process involves delivering pulsed energy waves towards the damaged or injured areas of the body. These waves pass painlessly and quickly to the damaged cells in whatever area of the body is being treated.
As you probably know our body is made up of many cells. When an injury or disease process happens, the cells are what get damaged and “sick”. When a cell becomes sick its energy reduces and this reduction causes a disruption in the normal cell metabolism and if our cells are not healthy then neither is our body.
Perhaps the easiest way to understand PEMF is to think your cells as a battery. A strong healthy cell is full charged. Your cell, like a battery can lose its energy whether due to age, disease, stress or overuse. PEMF serves to recharge your cells and promote healing.
So how does it work?
The “action” of a cell occurs at the cell membrane. The purpose of a call membrane is to control the flow of nutrients into the cell and metabolic waste products out of the cell. When a cell becomes sick the cell membrane reduces permeability and the end result is that nutrients cannot enter the cell and waste products cannot exit the cell. The combination of lack of nutrients and waste product build up causes the cell to get sicker which further reduces membrane permeability which results in even less nutrients getting into the cell, more waste product build up etc and so the downward spiral of cell health continues. End result our cells lose the ability to function normally and we get sick or diseased.
As mentioned above, PEMF recharges the cell and specifically causes an increase in cell membrane permeability which “opens up” the membrane and allows nutrients to flow in and waste to flow out. This reverses the disease process and promotes cellular health and healing.
