PEMF Therapeutic Uses

1. Introduction

Pulsed electromagnetic-field stimulation – used as a treatment for conditions such as non-union bone fractures, failed joint fusions, and congenital pseudarthroses – has yielded success rates of 70% to 95% in prospective and double-blind studies.

2. Musculoskeletal Disorders

2.1 Bone Repair

Pulsed electromagnetic-field stimulation has been shown to have an effect on bone repair via a number of different mechanisms.

2.1.1 Non Unions

These researchers reported an 80% success rate among 44 patients with non-unions of the scaphoid bone treated with PEMF stimulation, and advocated PEMF stimulation as an alternative method for treating non-union scaphoid fractures when long-arm cast treatment proves ineffective.

2.1.2 Congenital Pseudoarthrosis

The success of treatment of congenital Pseudoarthrosis with PEMF stimulation was outstanding since in the past, amputation was the most frequent outcome for this disorder.

2.1.3. Osteotomies

Pulsed electromagnetic-field stimulation has been shown to have an additional use in bone repair.

2.2 Other Orthopedic Disorders

2.2.1. Osteoporosis

The beneficial applications of PEMF stimulation in healing non-union bone fractures suggested the possibility that such treatments might be beneficial to patients with osteoporosis.

2.2.2 Hip Arthroplasty

2.2.3 Perthes Disease

PEMF exposure enables repair of the dead bone by promoting in growth of new blood vessels, while maintaining a balance between the rate of dead bone removal and the formation of new bone.

2.3 Summary of Orthopedic Literature

3. Rheumatological Disorders

3.1 Joint Disease

Of the 3014 subjects who received PEMF exposure, 78% showed good results.

3.1.2 Osteoarthritis

It has been suggested that magnetic fields are beneficial in the treatment of osteoarthritis because they suppress inflammatory responses at the cell membrane.

3.1.3. Rotator- Cuff Tendinitis

Overall, Binder et al. found that more than 70% of all patients in this study improved following PEMF therapy.

3.1.4 Lateral Humeral Epicondylitis

4. Spinal Fusions

PMEF stimulation allows for boney bridging in lumbar spinal fusions.

4.1 Interbody Lumbar Fusions

5. Soft-Tissue Regeneration

5.1 Venous Leg Ulcers

Pulsed electromagnetic-field stimulation has been investigated as a therapy for wound healing following results that PEMF’s can promote healing by potentially increasing collagen synthesis, angiogenesis, and bacteriostasis.

The investigators’ global assessments of the ulcers revealed a 50% improvement among those in the treatment group relative to a 0% improvement rate among the ulcers in the placebo group.

6. Pelvic Pain

The pain relief was evident following PEMF stimulation, and permitted a quicker return to normal life activities and prevented surgery.

7. Nerves

The animal studies conducted on nerve repair and PEMF treatment, considering nerves from both the arms and legs, all converged on the finding that PEMF therapy was effective in nerve regeneration relative to results obtained from animals given sham treatments.

7.1 Endocrine Ophthalmopathy

The success of PEMF stimulation in improving metabolic processes in tissues and organs led to the study of effectiveness of PEMF therapy in treating endocrine ophthalmopathy.

8. Neurological Disorders

8.1 Multiple Sclerosis

These findings suggest that PEMF therapy is a beneficial short-term treatment for individuals suffering from MS.

8.2 Auditory Disorders: Tinnitus

A double-blind randomized trial assessing the effectiveness of PEMF stimulation as a treatment for tinnitus found significant improvements in symptoms and significant reductions in sensation levels among the group of patients treated with the active PEMF device.

8.3 Psychiatric Disorders: Affective Disease

9. Neuroendocrine System

10. Cancer:

As you read over this section please keep in mind that the Molecular Enhancer operates within a much broader range of frequencies, it does not focus on the ELF (extremely low frequency) range. You will see that their results were inconclusive using ELF’s.

We suggest that the Molecular Enhancer be used alongside of whatever treatments the person is currently doing as the Enhancer is designed as an energy support to the body’s system. When used correctly the Enhancer has helped many people come through their treatments with less side effects.

11. Cerebral Ischemia (Stroke)

The success of this approach can possibly be due t the enhanced ability of the drugs in the presence of magnetic-field exposure to get across the blood-brain barrier.

12. Coronary Protection

12.1 Cardiac Stimulation

12.2 Myocardial Protection

This research provides encouraging results for clinical human studies, suggesting that preconditioning a human with exposure to PEMF stimulation prior to surgery and transplantation might minimize myocardial damage.

13. Psychophysiological Regulation

13.1 Human Standing Balance

These results suggest that OPEMF exposure has the ability to affect behavioral traits in both healthy controls and chronic pain patients.

14. Pain

In addition to animal research, human research has begun to reveal positive effects of magnetic-field exposure.

15. Discussion and Concluding Remarks

The preceding summary of results discussed in this paper indicates the great success of magnetic-field stimulation in treating a variety of conditions and disorders.

15.1 Possible Mechanisms of Action

As can be appreciated from this review, there is a very significant body of literature that supports the idea that therapeutic effects can be achieved from ELF magnetic-field exposure.

15.2 Conclusion

16 References

This is a great section that shows how much research has been done using pulsed magnetic fields. Now we need to further those studies to include a broader range of frequencies similar to those of the Molecular Enhancer.

The Molecular Enhancer does not heal or cure. It helps provide the energy the body needs to function properly.
