Could PEMF Help My Recovery?

Regenerative medicine is a revolutionary approach to healing chronic pain. Rather than merely masking the pain with dangerous and addictive medications, regenerative medicine zeroes in on the source of the pain and treats chronic disease or degenerative conditions by creating healthy, living tissue that replaces the existing, damaged tissue. While there are many different regenerative approaches, we utilize the following four methods: Ozone, Ozone Clot Matrix, Stem Cells, and Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF). While Ozone, OCM, and OCM + Stem Cell therapies are non-surgical, injection-based therapies, Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy is a different approach that is used in conjunction with these therapies to augment the restorative process once it is started.

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy

How Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy Works

Electricity is everywhere, including our bodies. If the electrical currents in our body go awry, the results can be hazardous. For example, a normal resting heart rate is between 60-90 beats per minute. Our heart is a muscle containing specific cells that generate an electrical pulse to cause the heart to contract at the right pace and in the right rhythm. During a heart attack, these cellular electrical impulses aren’t working properly, and they cause the heart to beat irregularly. That is why, during an emergency in which someone’s heart is beating dangerously irregularly or has stopped beating altogether, an automated external defibrillator (AED) will be used to lend an electrical shock to “jump start” a person’s heart. Electric currents quite literally keep us alive!

It’s not just the heart that is impacted by electricity. Each of our cells has an electric charge and is specialized to conduct electric current. If these electric currents are disrupted or the charge of our cells is not optimal, our body cannot function properly or heal itself. Without properly energized cells, our bodies can experience chronic pain, fatigue, and illness.

PEMF involves placing a ring, paddle, or pad which uses a resonating magnetic field (RMS) over the site of pain or injury. The device emits low-level electromagnetic pulses which pass through the skin and penetrate into organs, bones, muscles or tendons. This pulse interacts with our cellular metabolism in a way that creates an energy boost in the cell. This energy boost helps low-energy cells to function more healthily.

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy

To recognize how Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy works on a cellular level, it is important to understand how the cell operates. Each cell in the body is made up of various specialized structures. One of these structures is the mitochondria which acts like a battery or the “powerhouse” of the cell. The mitochondria are like any other part of our body and can be healthy or unhealthy. PEMF’s vary in frequency range and complexity, strength or intensity, types of stimulator, and waveform. Their ability to focus on specific frequencies helps fine-tune the mitochondria of the cell, guiding them back into optimal performance. Similar to the way your body gets a boost of energy as you become more fit, the mitochondria also experience an up-tick in energy. It is much like each of the cell’s batteries are becoming “recharged.” This process aids the cell in removing toxins, lowers cellular stress caused by free radicals, and increases the production of ATP, the molecule that stores and transports energy within the cell. Likewise, as these newly energized cells replicate, they produce other healthy cells. This has important and often drastic effects on the body’s ability to recover and heal itself.

One of the benefits of PEMF is that it can work on many different types of tissue. Since it works on a cellular level, it can be used to focus in on healing something as specific as a pulled muscle or as broad as the cellular rejuvenation of an entire body system. It is also used to alleviate pain and inflammation, improve circulation, energy levels, and sleep quality, and promote cellular detoxification and regeneration.

PEMF and Ozone, Ozone Clot Matrix, and OCM + Stem Cell Therapies

Ozone, OCM, and OCM + Stem Cell are all therapies that work on the cellular level. Ozone therapy stimulates cellular metabolism, helping the immune system along as it begins the healing of the body. Ozone-Clot Matrix therapy uses both ozone therapy and platelet rich plasma therapy to capitalize on the healing capacities of both therapies. When Stem Cell therapy is added to this, the ability for the bod
