I felt horrible. Nobody wants to be told they have cancer. I was afraid, my family was afraid. I watched a documentary on cancer and through it I found a loving, wonderful clinic. I learned how amazing our immune systems are and how our bodies can fight cancer! I came to the clinic and I was shocked. I didn’t know cancer treatment could look like this.
Some systematic reviews (Green et al 2003, Faber et al 2006) have supported a combination of manual therapy and exercise for patients with impingement for improvements in pain and function. Manual therapy interventions may be appropriate for restrictions in the glenohumeral joint, shoulder girdle, cervical and thoracic spine, and ribs and are discussed in more detail in Chapters 11, 12, 15 and 20.
Senbursa et al (2007) compared a home programme of rotator cuff and scapular strengthening exercises, active range of motion, and stretching with 12 sessions of glenohumeral soft tissue and joint mobilization, ice application, stretching and strengthening exercises in patients with impingement. At 4 weeks there were significant between group differences with regard to pain and function favouring the manual therapy group. Kachingwe et al (2008) showed significant changes with regard to pain, pain-free range of motion, and function for patients with impingement treated with 6 sessions of supervised exercise only, supervised exercise with glenohumeral grade I–IV glide and traction mobilizations from midrange, supervised exercise with a Mulligan mobilization with movement (MWM) shoulder flexion technique, or a control group receiving only physician advice; there were no between-group differences. Although power in this pilot study was extremely limited, the three intervention groups had a greater improvement in function and both manual therapy groups improved more with regard to pain measures. Active range of motion increased most for the MWM and least for the mobilization group.

TENS stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation which is a non-invasive drug free method of pain relief for both symptomatic and chronic pain. Transcutaneous means across the skin. A TENS machine relieves pain by sending tiny electrical impulses through electrodes placed on or near the area of pain or pressure point to underlying nerve fibres.

How does the PEMF machine work then? As each pulse of electromagnetic energy runs through the body, it improves the cells micro-circulation, simultaneously increasing the blood flow and amount of oxygen available to each cell, which in turn improves the electron transport chain efficiency. In turn this causes the ATP in cells to increase, making them function at optimal levels, making the body expel toxins, absorb nutrients and produce more energy.
Several mechanisms of PEMF therapy have been elucidated with regards to cancer. These studies have shown that PEMF therapy may exert proliferative inhibition and mitotic spindle disruption, block the development of neovascularization (blood supply) required for tumor growth and exacerbate an inherent or induced genetic instability by reducing the stringency of the late-cycle (G2) checkpoint. PEMF therapy also modulates gene expression and protein synthesis, interacting with specific DNA sequences within gene promoter regions. PEMFs have also an immunomodulatory effect, as supported by in vivo evidence showing an increase in tumor necrosis factor alpha levels that induce an anti-tumoral response.
Cognitive functioning after repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation in patients with cerebrovascular disease without dementia: a pilot study of seven patients; Rektorova; J Neurol Sci. 2005 Mar 15;229-230:157-61 This study aimed to examine whether one session of high frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) applied over the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) would induce any measurable cognitive changes in patients with cerebrovascular disease and mild cognitive deficits. Seven patients with cerebrovascular disease and mild executive dysfunction entered the randomized, controlled, blinded study with a crossover design. rTMS was applied either over the left DLPFC (an active stimulation site) or over the left motor cortex (MC; a control stimulation site) in one session. Each patient participated in both stimulation sessions (days 1 and 4) and the order of stimulation sites (DLPFC or MC) was randomized. A short battery of neuropsychological tests was performed by a blinded psychologist prior to and after each rTMS session. Psychomotor speed, executive function, and memory were evaluated. Results: mild but significant stimulation site-specific effect of rTMS was observed in the Stroop interference results (i.e. improvement) after the stimulation of DLPFC in comparison with the baseline scores (Wilcoxon, Z=-2.03, p=0.04). Patients improved in the digit symbols subtest of the Wechsler adult intelligence scale-revised after both rTMS sessions regardless of the stimulation site.
The first study utilizing PEMF therapy was conducted by Barbault and coworkers who hypothesized that a combination of defined tumor-specific frequencies, may display therapeutic effectiveness for localized treatment of tumors. They identified a total of 1524 tumor-specific frequencies, ranging from 0.1 to 114 kHz, consisting in the measurement of variations in skin electrical resistance, pulse amplitude, and blood pressure in 163 patients affected by different types of cancer including brain tumors, colorectal cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma, pancreatic, colorectal, ovarian, breast, prostate, lung, thyroid, and bladder cancer and exposed to the radiofrequency system.
Many people are aware of the negative effects Electro Magnetic Fields have but it is important to understand not all Electro Magnetic fields are bad and in the case of PEMF therapy we are using them to recharge our cells. Each cell in the body has its own small electromagnetic field with all our cells operating between around 0-30Hz. The Earth also has a magnetic field fundamental resonance frequency which is usually around 7.83Hz which is referred to the Schumann Frequency and this is the type of magnetic field our bodies have evolved to operate properly in. The problem is with increasing technology our world is getting filled with electromagnetic pollution that is filled with higher frequency electromagnetic fields our bodies are unable to properly function with and is making us sick.
Effects of a pulsed electromagnetic therapy on multiple sclerosis fatigue and quality of life: a double-blind, placebo controlled trial; Lappin MS; Altern Ther Health Med. 2003 Jul-Aug;9(4):38-48. This study is a follow-up to a placebo controlled pilot study in which multiple sclerosis (MS) patients exposed to weak, extremely low frequency pulsed electromagnetic fields showed significant improvements on a composite symptom measure. This study was a multi-site, double-blind, placebo controlled, crossover trial involving 117 patients with MS. Each subject received 4 weeks of the active and placebo treatments separated by a 2-week washout period. Paired t-tests were used to assess treatment differences in the 117 subjects (81% of the initial sample) who completed both treatment sessions. Improvements in fatigue and overall quality of life were significantly greater on the active device.
Having the intense pain, swelling with discoloration happening right before my eyes. Well, Dr. Pacelli explain that following his procedures would have me walking down the isle in the six weeks’ time, with no pain, swelling and the normal color to my lower leg and ankle area. He stated the bone would be mending but we would not know how much it would be mended until the day before that wonderful date. One of the major therapies was PEMF that I never heard of before but what a different it made to my leg.

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.
La clarification des missions avec un repositionnement en formation initiale dans les ESPE était attendue par les PEMF, tout comme la nécessité d’accorder une décharge de service suffisante pour couvrir toutes les missions. Si le chantier a permis de redéfinir les missions en distinguant ce qui relève de la formation initiale et de la formation continue, en donnant la priorité à la formation initiale, la question du temps de décharge de service n’a pas eu de réponse. Avec un temps de décharge insuffisant et l’absence de cadrage nationale pour intégrer les PEMF dans les équipes pluri-professionnelles, rien ne garantit leur participation effective au sein des ESPE. Malgré les interventions du SNUipp-FSU pour faire évoluer le régime indemnitaire, l’indemnité de tutorat que tous les PEMF ne touchaient pas est maintenue et reste liée au suivi effectif des fonctionnaires stagiaires. Le SNUipp-FSU va continuer d’intervenir notamment dans le cadre de la réecriture de la circulaire pour que les missions des PEMF ne soient pas que reconnues mais puissent être effectives.

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.

A systematic review aimed to examine the efficacy of rTMS on improving physical function and motor signs over the short- and long-terms in people with PD; Effect of Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation on Physical Function and Motor Signs in Parkinson's Disease: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis; Chung CL; Brain Stimul. 2016 Jul-Aug;9(4):475-87. Twenty-two trials comprising 555 people with PD were included in the review. The pooled evidence suggests that rTMS improves upper limb function in the short-term, walking performance and Unified Parkinson’s Disease rating Scale (UPDRS III) in the short- and long-terms in PD sufferers.

Je fais maths tous les après-midi. Les trois niveaux en même temps. Cela me permet de faire fonctionner à plein l'entraide et de faire travailler les élèves au niveau qui leur correspond. Ainsi, j'ai actuellement un élève de CE1 qui cartonne en math (il a directement attaqué le fichier CE2 cette année et est en tête du groupe). L'an passé, j'avais à l'inverse un élève très en difficulté qui travaillait sur le fichier CE1 alors qu'il était au CE2. Alors oui, cet élève n'a pas suivi le programme de CE2 MAIS il a progressé, sans installer de nouvelles lacunes. Et le fait de se voir progresser (changer de série) a renforcé son estime de lui.
