Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEFT)
The body’s natural defenses work to fight a variety of illnesses, conditions, and dysfunctions. Unfortunately, imbalances and trauma can cause problems on a cellular level. In cases like these, Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy, or PEFT, may be beneficial.
What Is It?
Electromagnetic field therapy is a type of biomedical technology that is designed to stimulate the body’s natural electromagnetic activity within the cells. PEFT involves the delivery of pulsing electromagnetic fields.
Every cell in the body carries magnetic energy, which is used to relay information between the body and the brain. Any disruption in this energy can lead to issues with cellular function, creating an imbalance. An electromagnetic delivery machine is used to reintroduce magnetism into the body on a cellular level. By doing this, it is believed that cellular activity is increased.
Several aspects of electromagnetic therapy are closely controlled during treatment. Doctors must determine the appropriate frequency, amplitude, pulse intensity, and waveform. The electromagnetic pulse energy can be delivered to targeted locations or throughout the whole body.
As a biomedical technology, PEFT can be used in the treatment of various issues. It is often beneficial in reducing inflammation and pain, improving circulation, relieving stress, and promoting sleep. This electromagnetic therapy is commonly used to help promote healing in soft tissue and bone repair.
Athletes often choose electromagnetic therapy because it can speed up recovery, help to maintain optimum health, and provide enhanced performance. People suffering from osteoarthritis may also experience a reduction in symptoms, including relief from stiffness and joint pain. Chronic back pain due to degenerating discs may also be treated with electromagnetic therapy. The treatment can reduce muscle spasms and inflammation.
Although many people do not experience any adverse side effects, there are a few potential effects. Patients receiving a higher intensity treatment may experience some minor discomfort during use. Additionally, some patients may experience a drop in their heart rate or blood pressure during treatment. Both potential side effects usually subside after treatment has finished.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy has potential benefits for many kinds of people and ailments. As a result of cellular stimulation, this therapy can be helpful to people with chronic and acute injuries and illnesses. Many people choose this type of electromagnetic therapy as a less invasive alternative to other treatments such as surgery and prescription medications.
