Post-surgery, approximately half of the participants engaged in PEMF therapy while the other half served as a control.After evaluating the patients’ statuses at one,two, three, six, and twelve month intervals, the researchers concluded that, “There were no differences in the incidence of adverse events in the two groups, indicating that the use of PEMF stimulation is safe in this clinical setting.” It’s important to note that, although PEMF was deemed safe in this study, there was still one major difference between the group who participated in this therapy and the group that did not.
Widely used in Europe, and growing in popularity across North America, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy has been used for decades by doctors, chiropractors, naturopaths and even veterinarians. In the past, PEMF devices were quite large and prohibitively expensive for most of the general public. Today, however, PEMF devices are used in many homes, and costs have fallen considerably.
The original PEMF devices consisted of a Helmholtz coil which generated a magnetic field. The patient's body was placed inside the magnetic field to deliver treatment. Today, the majority of PEMF wellness devices resemble a typical yoga mat in dimensions but are slightly thicker to house several flat spiral coils to produce an even electromagnetic field. A frequency generator is then used to energize the coils to create a pulsed electromagnetic field. A wide variety of professional and consumer PEMF devices are sold and marketed as FDA registered wellness devices. The majority are manufactured in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and are imported into North America as electric massagers or full body electric yoga mats. They are either placed on a massage table for clinical use or directly on the floor in the home to practice simple yoga postures. The companies that sell and manufacture them as "general wellness products" are not permitted to make medical claims of effectiveness in treating disease.
I was scared. The doctor said, “There is a very large ‘something’ in your abdomen.” My world stopped. I went to my husband’s office next to mine, and I sat down and started crying. I underwent surgery to remove the tumor. It wasn’t until later I learned how important nutrition is. I learned you have to be diligent, but there is something that you can do.
PEMF Therapy has been proven to be a very effective method to restore and maintain cellular function by re-balancing the cellular membrane functions and improve oxygenation of the cells and nutrient flow and as well as to detoxify the cells. As more cells are re-balanced the natural regeneration process occurs. PEMF Therapy has also been shown to be effective in counteracting the negative affects of the BAD EMF's.
NASA (National Aeronautical and Space Administration) also saw the need to develop a means of preventing and treating bone and muscle loss of their astronauts as they explored the moon and other regions of the galaxy. Methods were developed to enhance bone retention, prevent or alleviate muscle atrophy, and enhance natural healing and regeneration whilst in a space environment with little access to conventional treatments.
ranscutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS or TNS) is the use of electric current produced by a device to stimulate the nerves for therapeutic purposes. TENS, by definition, covers the complete range of transcutaneously applied currents used for nerve excitation although the term is often used with a more restrictive intent, namely to describe the kind of pulses produced by portable stimulators used to treat pain.
A number of in vitro studies have shown LIPUS to have direct effects on osteoblasts, including alteration of transmembrane ion transfer, stimulation of immediate-early response genes, elevation of mRNA levels for bone matrix proteins, such as osteocalcin and BSP, and increased synthesis of cytokines and growth factors, including c-Fos, COX-2, IGF-I, nitric oxide, p38/MAPK, PGE2, PI3-K, and VEGF. These changes are consistent with a bone-forming response. This bone-forming response is supported by studies using bone rudiments. In 17-day-old fetal mouse metatarsal bone rudiments, LIPUS treatment for 21 min/day over a period of 7 days was found to stimulate a threefold increase in the average length of the calcified diaphysis, when compared to control rudiments.
Did you know that the OMI mat is the primary PEMF product that consumers use to get renewed energy and better sleep? This is what most individuals turn to for a more complete approach to PEMF therapy. The OMI PEMF therapy mat is lightweight, easy to use, easy to clean and it is beautifully designed with a soft microfiber surface comfortable enough for anyone to use.
This was a rigorous test of wearable pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) for older patients with osteoarthritis of the knee: moderate to severe cases with X-ray evidence and pain of at least 4/10 for more than six months, despite maximum tolerated medication. Sixty patients wore either a real PEMF device for 12 hours per day, or a fake; neither they nor the researchers knew who got real PEMF (double-blind). PEMF is particularly easy to test properly, because it causes no sensation, making it much easier to compare to an active placebo.
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.
An open-label pilot study of pulsed electromagnetic field therapy in the treatment of failed back surgery syndrome pain; Wayne L Harper; Int Med Case Rep J. 2015; 8: 13–22 The primary objective of this open-label exploratory study was to investigate the analgesic effectiveness of pulsed electromagnetic field therapy administered twice daily over a 45-day period in 34 subjects (68% female) with persistent or recurrent pain following back surgery. Of the 30 per-protocol subjects who completed the study, 33% reported a clinically meaningful (≥30%) reduction in pain intensity (PI). A higher response rate (60%) was reported for subjects who had undergone discectomy prior to the trial compared to subjects who had undergone other types of surgical interventions (decompression or fusion) without discectomy. Improvements in PI were paralleled by improvements in secondary outcomes. Relative to baseline, responders reported an average 44% and 55% reduction in back PI and leg PI (respectively), and an average 13% improvement in Oswestry Disability Index scores. In the per-protocol population, 50% of responders and 12% of non-responders reported less analgesia consumption at the end of treatment versus baseline. Sixty-seven percent of per-protocol responders and 0% of non-responders reported clinically meaningful improvement in overall well-being on the Patient Global Impression of Change scale.
There is currently a lack of guidelines based on randomized, prospective studies to aid the clinician treating partial rotator cuff tears and contusions. Also, most of the available studies lack adequate statistical power. The results of nonoperative management of partial-thickness tears are largely unknown because there are no long-term follow-up studies using a standardized treatment protocol. Nonsurgical treatment is still regarded as the initial management step. The goal of treatment in athletes with a partial rotator cuff tear is to eliminate pain and restore function. Treatment of the athlete with a rotator cuff contusion has the same objective. The goals could evolve if biologic interventions are developed that lead to a true healing response (Ferhat et al, 2016).
Bonjour sophsoph. J'aimerais aussi tester le sud plans de travail. Dans un même cours je fais deux programmations différentes. Je veux passer à l'étape supérieure en individualisant le travail. Ce qui le freine : les corrections. Comment les gérer pour ne pas être submergée de fiches à corriger ? L'auto correction ? Je ne sais pas si c'est efficace. Je réfléchis.
