PEMF has FDA recognition for different conditions such as wound healing, tissue swelling, pain treatment, bone regeneration and even depression. PEMF is non-contact, non-invasive, non-pharmacological and effective support for many health conditions. Worldwide more than 2,000 double blind, university level medical studies have demonstrated that PEMF therapy is a safe and effective treatment for a variety of medical conditions, as well as to promote and maintain general cellular health and function.
Recently, I've started using it consistently for longer times, keeping it on through several cycles of the PD drugs. In doing so, I've found that this can reduce the prolonged "off" periods in which the drugs wear off completely. Thus, consistent use of the device is helping to keep pain and rigidity symptoms at bay, and to also extend the time of action of each dose too, allowing a lower drug burden overall. I also therefore get less, and less severe, dyskinesia - the large scale uncontrolled wriggling movements which long term use of the PD drugs tends to cause (side-effect of medication).
Self-administered PEMF therapy for 60 min, three times a day, for an average of 278.4 months was offered to only 28 patients with advanced cancer: 7 breast cancer, 5 ovarian cancer, 3 pancreatic cancer, 2 colorectal cancer, 2 prostate cancer, 1 glioblastoma multiforme, 1 hepatocellular carcinoma, 1 mesothelioma, 1 neuroendocrine tumor, 1 non-small-cell lung cancer, 1 oligodendroglioma, 1 small-cell lung cancer, 1 sarcoma, and 1 thyroid tumor. None of the patients who received PEMF therapy reported any side effects; four patients presented stable disease for 3 years (thyroid cancer with biopsy-proven lung metastases), 6 months (mesothelioma metastatic to the abdomen), 5 months (non-small-cell lung cancer), and 4 months (pancreatic cancer with biopsy-proven liver metastases), respectively.
Although the evidence for this isn’t unanimous, some of the best and most recent PEMF trials are unambiguously positive.3Bagnato GL, Miceli G, Marino N, Sciortino D, Bagnato GF. Pulsed electromagnetic fields in knee osteoarthritis: a double blind, placebo-controlled, randomized clinical trial. Rheumatology (Oxford). 2016 Apr;55(4):755–62. PubMed #26705327. PainSci #53404.
They back this statement by reporting that even hospitalized patients are at risk, with one out of every ten harmed while in what is supposed to be one of the safest medical environments. It only goes to reason then that safety is also a major concern and consideration for patients who are interested in PEMF therapy. So what’s the answer to the question of whether or not PEMF is safe?If you answer this question based on research alone, then PEMF is in fact a safe treatment remedy.
Low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) has been shown to have significant beneficial skeletal effects. Ultrasound refers to a high-frequency nonaudible acoustic energy that travels in the form of longitudinal mechanical waves. Traditionally used by physical therapists to intervene in injuries to soft tissues, it is most commonly used with intensity in the range of 0.5–2.0 W/cm2. In comparison, to intervene in injuries to hard tissues (such as bone) pulsed-wave ultrasound with a spatially averaged, temporally averaged intensity (ISATA) of below 0.1 W/cm2 is preferred. ISATA refers to the average ultrasound power over the area of the ultrasound beam (spatial-average) and the average of this intensity over a complete pulse cycle (ultrasound ‘on’ and ‘off’ period; temporal average). Pulsed-wave ultrasound with an ISATA below 0.1 W/cm2 is termed LIPUS and is preferred in the intervention of fracture healing, as its low ISATA significantly reduces the risk of any thermal or cavitational tissue damage—LIPUS has US Food and Drug Administration approval to be applied to bone.

ZIL : Le ZIL est un professeur des écoles titulaire remplaçant qui s'occupe essentiellement des remplacements courts, urgents et non prévus. Mais il peut aussi remplacer sur des congés maternité. Lorsqu'il n'a pas de remplacement, il reste dans son école de rattachement où il aide ses collègues. Le ZIL se déplace en théorie dans un rayon de 20km autour de son école de rattachement, en pratique dans toute sa circonscription.
Is your approach being embraced by the professionals researching the rehab/recovery work? I would be really interested to hear more. You may be interested in the work of Body Intelligence/biodynamic craniosacral therapy, Pain is Really Strange (FB and blog site) - although name implies about pain, it's that full mix of what you have been exploring yourself (Steve Haines, craniosacral therapist).
Some people report a mild headache after their first few PEMF therapy sessions. Since Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields stimulate neurons1 and enhance cellular repair2, these effects are temporary and are a small cost to pay for the repair that takes place. Eventually, the pain relief3 effects start appearing after the user is acclimatized to the magnetic field. Others report no such symptoms and take to PEMF like fish to water with zero negative side effects of PEMF therapy.
Another study, in Bio-electromagnetics, looked at 11 different trials involving PEMF to determine its level of therapeutic effect as well as whether or not it was safe. Some of these studies involved PEMF’s effects on osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, or pain perception,while the rest focused on how PEMF impacted skin ulcers, fatigue related to multiple sclerosis, heart rate variability, and overall well-being.3

It seems most unusual that in a review of “all currently available treatments” for knee osteoarthritis (OA) by 21 authorities and “two experts in the field of guidelines methodology”, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy was not mentioned in the text or the 51 references.1 This is particularly troubling because over 2800 publications between 1966 and 1998 were retrieved. An identical search for efficacy of magnetic field therapy during this period listed 31 studies with at least one control group,2 including two double blind trials citing benefits in knee OA from a peer reviewed arthritis journal.3 4 In 1999 over 50 000 patients received pulsed signal therapy (PST) prescribed by over 1000 doctors at more than 300 clinics and hospitals in 16 countries, where it is usually reimbursed by fiscal intermediaries because of its proven record of cost effectiveness and safety. A summary of PST double blind and randomised study results in over 50 000 patients has been published,5 and findings in 100 000 patients (the vast majority with knee OA) have also been reported at recent international conferences.6 7 Although “alternative” remedies, ranging from minerals, vitamins, nutritional supplements, and capsaicin and diclofenac gels to sex hormones were discussed, in contrast with PST, none satisfied the category criteria the panel established to determine strong recommendation. Nor do any have the solid basic science studies that PST provides with its in vitro support for mechanisms of action to explain efficacy based on proteoglycan synthesis and chondrocyte stimulation results.8 9
Many PEMF mats come with other therapies programmed into the mat. If your mat has more than one therapy, try not to enable all the therapies at once. Instead, enable 1-2 therapies every 3 days (ex. With a top of the line 5 therapy mat ). Enabling therapies gradually will allow your body to adapt to the different waves passing through it, which will result in a more positive healing experience.
Stationary (or “static”), non-varying, magnetic fields from magnets have fixed strengths. They are used in mattresses, bracelets, knee wraps and the like. Most have very shallow penetration into the body, resulting in a very limited ability to affect deeper tissues, and they rarely treat all the cells of the body simultaneously. Only skilled practitioners may guide you to get the bestresults from these approaches.

Results: Low-back pain scores for the 42-µs group decreased by 40.2% (p = 0.028), compared to 18.6% for the 38-µs pulse width group (p = 0.037) and 25.6% for the sham group (p = 0.013 per protocol population). Average leg pain scores decreased by 45.0% (42 μs, p = 0.009), 17.0% (38 μs, p = 0.293), and 24.5% (sham, p = 0.065). The proportion of subjects responding to therapy, time to 30% reduction in pain scores, and Patient Global Impression of Change were improved with the PEMF 42-μs device over the sham control, although results were associated with p-values >0.05.
Given the recent rapid advances in the development of portable and economical PEMF devices, of most significance to the plastic surgeon has been the laboratory and clinical confirmation of decreased pain and swelling following injury or surgery.3,62 Indeed, PEMF configured for the Ca/CaM pathway has been shown to significantly accelerate postsurgical pain relief with a concomitant reduction in pain medications in a randomized, doubl-blind study in patients who underwent breast augmentation.3 Because of the unique biologic mechanism of the PEMF effect, this modality can be combined quite effectively with other therapies for additive or supradditive effects to promote pain relief, healing, and recovery. Treatment regimens may be manual or automatic and scheduled as frequently as every hour for particularly acute situations. The device is noninvasive and can be applied over a dressing; it and may even be part of a dressing for postoperative treatment of an incisional wound (Figure 5). Treatment begins in the recovery room and, to treat pain and edema, is generally administered every 4 hours for 30 minutes for 3 days, and then every 8 hours for the next several days until pain and edema are not significant. For the treatment of chronic wounds, the regimen is 30 minutes twice a day until healed.
Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, with other less commonly used interventions, was not included in this list, and its evidence for efficacy was therefore not assessed. However, as emphasised by Dr Pfeiffer, an evidence based evaluation of all other interventions would be of interest and could be considered for inclusion in the next round of evidence based guidelines.
In the overhead throwing athlete, shoulder rehabilitation should be directed at the underlying deficits, most commonly loss of shoulder internal rotation and poor control of the scapula. A four-phase approach is described by Wilk & Macrina (2014) in the nonoperative treatment of throwing shoulder injuries. In phase 1, the “acute phase,” the primary goals are to diminish pain/inflammation, improve motion, activate the appropriate muscles, create dynamic stability and muscle balance, and restore proprioception. The athlete’s level of activity is adjusted according to symptoms, which usually require the athlete to abstain from activity. Internal rotation motion is addressed; the preferred stretches are the modified sleeper’s stretch and supine horizontal adduction with internal rotation stretch (Fig. 6A.2). A horizontal adduction stretch with manual patient assistance into internal rotation is performed. Assessment of scapula positioning is also recommended, with strengthening of the scapula retractors and the lower trapezius and additional stretching of the pectoralis minor. The primary goals of phase 2, the “intermediate phase,” are to progress the strengthening program, improve the range of motion, and facilitate neuromuscular control. Core strengthening is also initiated during this phase. Kibler et al (2013) have emphasized the need to evaluate and treat the entire system to restore the athlete’s kinetic chain. Phase 3, the “advanced strengthening phase,” involves aggressive strengthening drills to promote power and endurance as well as functional drills, and throwing is gradually introduced. “Return to throwing phase,” phase 4, incorporates the progression of an interval-throwing program. This program controls for distance, intensity, and surface, in that for pitchers, throwing from the mound is the last advancement. It is important to be aware that when athletes are told to throw with 50% effort, they actually throw at 83% of their maximal speed, and when asked to throw at 75% they are actually throwing at 90% of their maximal effort (Fleisig et al, 1996).
Apparently, these PEMF therapy induced, oxygen (metabolism) effects are accelerated under load. While our U.S. Swimmers increased their static-breath-hold by 19% and 20% in 21 days, their underwater swim increased by 50% from one length of a 50M pool, to being able to turn and swim 1/2 way back. 75M with a turn in between! One NFL star running back increased his vertical jump by over 2 inches! These types of ergogenic effects are simply unprecedented. We’re the super-secret weapon of many professional sportsmen. Improving their dollar-value and extending their careers while they sleep. Priceless!…that’s EarthPulse™.

All energy is electromagnetic in nature. All atoms, chemicals and cells produce electromagnetic fields (EMFs). Every organ in the body produces it own signature bioelectromagnetic field. Science has proven that our bodies actually project their own magnetic fields and that all 70 trillion cells in the body communicate via electromagnetic frequencies. Nothing happens in the body without an electromagnetic exchange. When the electromagnetic activity of the body ceases, life ceases.
On the show, world-class pain specialist Dr. James Dillard mentioned electromagnetic portable pads to Dr. Oz. These mats produce a therapeutic pulsed electromagnetic field that can surround the entire body. They are not FDA-approved and are not made in the USA. PEMF mats are primarily advertised and distributed over the Internet, often used without medical supervision. Retail price is $2000 to $3000, and often renting is possible for a weekly rate. There are a dozen different companies that make these devices. Three examples are the Mediconsult iMRS/MRS2000, Medithera Home System, and Quantron Resonance System QRS-101.
Le SNUipp-FSU a réaffirmé que la formation initiale devait constituer le cœur de l’activité des PEMF. Il est aussi intervenu pour que soit mentionnée l’appartenance aux équipes pluri-professionnelles de formation dans les ESPE et la possibilité de leur intervention dans les travaux de recherche. Il a alerté sur la multiplication des missions, sur le manque de coordination entre rectorat et ESPE. Le SNUipp-FSU a aussi rappelé qu’il n’est pas possible d’aborder la question des missions sans faire mention du temps dégagé pour les assurer. Il a questionné le ministère sur cet aspect puisqu’il n’apparaissait pas de manière explicite dans les fiches-métiers. Les 2 heures d’information et de documentation personnelles ne reviendraient donc pas dans le temps de décharge de classe comme nous le demandions, mais resteraient dans les 108 heures. La seule dispense d’APC serait conservée mais elle ne représente que 24h (passage de 60h à 36h annuelles).
What’s more is that, PEMF treatment is pulsed and brief, so you don’t have extended exposure like you would sitting under a cell phone tower all day. Most PEMF treatments last 10-20 minutes and deliver short bursts the whole time, instead of constant exposure. So, you can get all of the benefits of PEMF without the negative effects that come with man-made EMF sources like electronics.
The OMI pulse pad is also available, and has been helpful for those who suffer from carpal tunnel or other localized areas that are painful. The pulse pad can be easily placed on a table or on your lap, allowing you to rest your arm gently on the pulse pad. The pulse pad is compact and battery operated, making it easy to take your therapy wherever you choose to go.
Speaking of how you may feel when receiving PEMF therapy, most people claim to feel nothing, however do not be surprised if you feel a slight tingling sensation from the electrical static produced by the PEMF. Others have claimed that whilst receiving PEMF treatment they experienced stress relief as the treatment progressed, so if you are a highly stressed individual (like myself) this may just be the thing for you.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields have always existed, in fact the Earth is constantly generating one, in basis, we are always exposed to a pulsating field of electromagnetic energy. However, due to the broad spectrum of other Electromagnetic Fields that currently inhabit the air; the effects of the PEMF are lost in so much “Static Electromagnetic energy”. For a large amount of human history, we were unaware of the benefits this PEMF was generating, the realization dawned on scientists after the first few successful space missions due to the effects that extended time in space were having on astronauts.
Considering the role of thoracic flexion on scapulo-thoracic motion, education with regard to appropriate posture seems an obvious component of patient education. Bullock et al (2005) noted a significant increase in patients with impingement for shoulder flexion range although not pain intensity with erect as compared to slouched sitting posture. Visual, manual, and verbal feedback combined with education on faulty movement patterns provided significantly decreased electromyographic activity in the upper and middle trapezius, infraspinatus, serratus anterior, and anterior and middle deltoid muscles of patients with impingement immediately and 24 hours after movement training, whereas trunk, shoulder, and clavicular kinematics improved during and immediately after training, especially in the subset of patients with elevated clavicular position supporting the role of educating patients on correct movement patterns (Roy et al 2009).
Centuries later, during the Middle Ages, use of these types of stones was again recorded, thistime referring to them as “lodestones” which were placed upon the patient’s body in an effort to achieve greater health. Then, in the late 1800s, science increased our understanding of electrons and electro-magnetism, prompting healthcare professionals to consider using magnetism and electricity for a number of different ailments, ranging from an inability to sleep to actual physical convulsions.
Je pense consacrer 15 minutes 4 fois par semaine à ces leçons (pour le calcul et la numération), mais je n'en fais pas sur les difficultés des fiches, chaque élève a ses propres difficultés (ou pas) sur les fiches, donc ce sont plutôt les élèves qui s'entraident lorsque l'un d'entre eux ne comprend pas une fiche. Pour établir ma progression, j'avais regardé la progression des fichiers PEMF pour calquer au mieux.
