"PEMF therapy improves PD symptoms including tremor, slowness of movement and difficulty in walking. It is non-invasive, safe and improves PD patients’ quality of life. PEMF therapy, employed for PD treatment, supports the body’s own healing process for 4–6 h after therapy session. It can be used at home and applied to the entire body or locally to target a specific body area and, if compared with dopaminergic systemic therapy, e.g. l-dopa, it can offer an alternative treatment avoiding systemic side effects such as hepatotoxicity and nephrotoxicity."
What does it promise? A technology first used by vets to treat injured racehorses, the electromagnetic charges thrown out by PEMF equipment are thought to stimulate your body’s cells, which can aid recovery from injury, reduce headaches, improve your immune system and blood circulation, provide improved sleep, and boost your general energy. People swear by it. Admittedly, one of those people is Noel Edmonds.

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).

Exposure to a specific pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) has been shown to produce analgesic (antinociceptive) effects in many organisms. In a randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled clinical trial, patients with either chronic generalized pain from fibromyalgia (FM) or chronic localized musculoskeletal or inflammatory pain were exposed to a PEMF (400 μT) through a portable device fitted to their head during twice-daily 40 min treatments over seven days. The effect of this PEMF on pain reduction was recorded using a visual analogue scale. A differential effect of PEMF over sham treatment was noticed in patients with FM, which approached statistical significance (P=0.06) despite low numbers (n=17); this effect was not evident in those without FM (P=0.93; n=15). PEMF may be a novel, safe and effective therapeutic tool for use in at least certain subsets of patients with chronic, nonmalignant pain.
Taping patients may support retraining of correct movement patterns. However, using asymptomatic subjects Cools et al (2002) showed that tape application intended to inhibit the upper and facilitate the lower trapezius had no effect on electromyographic activity in the serratus anterior or all three portions of the trapezius with resisted or un-resisted flexion and abduction of the shoulder. The authors suggested altered timing as a possible explanation for the clinically observed effects of taping. In contrast, in patients with subacromial impingement Selkowitz et al (2007) did show that similar taping decreased upper trapezius and increased lower trapezius activity during a functional overhead-reaching task and that it decreased upper trapezius activity during shoulder abduction in the scapular plane. Mechanisms suggested to be involved in taping include facilitation or augmentation of proprioceptive cutaneous input, tension when movement occurs outside of the movement pattern allowed by the taping application, and inhibition or facilitation by taping shortened overactive muscles in a lengthened position, whereas the tape might be used hold lengthened under-active muscles in a shortened position. Various taping techniques appropriate for patients with impingement have been described in the literature (Morrissey 2000, Kneeshaw 2002) (Fig 16.5). Morrissey (2000) suggested that when the positive effect on the movement pattern or on symptoms was maintained, taping could be discontinued.

The research to date has shown that the mechanisms by which PEMF works are complicated and likely involve many pathways. In addition to increasing cell metabolism, perhaps PEMF’s greatest power is in its ability to ameliorate the effects of inflammation by decreasing inflammatory cytokines. it is also conceivable, as suggested by Gordon et al, that another important effect of PEMF is the ability of the magnetic fields to restore “equilibrium in ROS (free radical)/antioxidant chemistry. It is unequivocal that all chronic diseases result from a lack of homeostasis between free radicals and antioxidants. While both free radicals and antioxidants are normal and vital for processes such as cellular respiration and immunity, an imbalance could lead to cell and tissue death, DNA damage, and protein and fat degradation.
The ergogenic athletic performance enhancement effects of our PEMF systems exceed anything reported in the scientific literature for increasing strength, stamina, VO2 Max or averting training-induced soreness. Unlike hypoxic training, hyperbaric oxygen or PEMF therapy systems, EarthPulse™ PEMF takes absolutely no effort at all other than turning it on when going to bed. It works synergistically with all nutritional programs and appears to qualify as an adaptogen and anabolic when paired with rigorous physical training.
There followed the development of inductively coupled, externally applied electromagnetic field modalities to affect bone repair.22,23 Development of the bone growth stimulator (BGS) signal did not follow from diathermy considerations, but rather from the general electrochemical models developed by one of the authors (AAP).24 As will be seen, although this approach resulted in an effective BGS signal, that signal was not specifically configured for what is now commonly considered to be the PEMF transduction pathway. Nonetheless, a multitude of studies have shown the BGS signal to have sufficient biologic effect to modulate growth factor release.25 Therapeutic uses of these technologies in orthopedics have led to clinical applications approved by regulatory bodies worldwide for the adjunctive treatment of recalcitrant fractures and spine fusion.1,26 Several reports have suggested that the overall success rate of BGS is not significantly different from that of the first bone graft,1 which is a significant benefit for the patient and the health care system.
Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy has been extensively studied by Hannemann et al. (see Chapter 23).20 With regard to pulsed low-intensity ultrasound therapy, Mayr et al. performed a single-blind randomized controlled trial with patients sustaining scaphoid fractures type B1 or B2 (Herbert classification). 29 patients (30 fractures) were divided into two groups; all patients were treated with a below-elbow cast with immobilization of the thumb until radiologic consolidation occurred. The intervention group additionally underwent a pulsed low-intensity ultrasound treatment of 20 min daily. The consolidation was assessed by a CT scan every 2 weeks. The time until consolidation was 43.2 ± 10.9 days in the intervention group, compared with 62 ± 19.2 days in the placebo group, a significant difference (P = .0055). Limitations of this study include the small groups, lacking sample size calculation, a single-blinded design, and more importantly the imprecision and unreliability of the primary outcome time until consolidation, despite the fact that evaluation by a CT-scan was performed every 2 weeks.21 No further publications considering both subjects have been found in the literature.
More recently our bodies have been bombarded with unnatural and harmful EMF's. As well we are working and living in unnatural environments which block the natural earth emf's (which we need). This is a similar experience of astronauts in space who were affected by the lack of the natural earths emf's and then negatively affected. With all this advent of “modern” technology now we require these other methods of PEMF Therapy to help bring our bodies back into balance. And there are many other things (pollutants, improper nutrition, and many others) which take the body out of its natural balance where PEMF Therapy is essential. The other factors such as proper nutrition etc.still need to be addressed.
However, simply because I haven’t found a negative to PEMF treatment, it doesn’t mean there isn’t one, it simply means I couldn’t find it. But for now, it looks like a simple way to help your body recharge and work at an optimal level, so I will not boycott it. If you do choose to use it, please leave a comment or let me know how you got on, I’d love to hear from you!
Diathermy-based RF PEMF has been employed in (1) double-blind clinical studies for chronic wound repair, in which actively treated pressure ulcers closed by 84% versus 40% in sham-treated wounds in one study7 and 60% versus no closure in the control group in another study8; (2) studies showing that a decrease in edema in acute ankle sprains was sevenfold versus the control group9,10; (3) studies showing a pain decrease in acute whiplash injuries of 50% and a range of motion increase of 75% in treated versus control patients11,12; (4) skin microvascular blood flow studies, in which blood flow was enhanced by about 30% in both healthy13 and diabetic14 individuals; and (5) studies in which postmastectomy lymphedema was reduced by 56% and skin blood flow increased fourfold.15
As we can see, long-term pulsed magnetic field therapy has been proven to be safe, so you should be able to proceed with using it without any issues, especially if it makes you feel better. Remember, listen to your body and when in doubt always consult a professional who knows about using PEMF treatment. Approaching professionals who do not have experience with a particular type of treatment will almost always be counter-productive as they will not be able to guide you with a protocol they don’t understand. At such times, it’s good to help us spread awareness and ask them to subscribe to our blog.
Separate Cochrane Systematic Reviews evaluating the benefits of electrotherapy modalities as well as assessing the value of manual therapy and exercise for rotator cuff disease have been performed (Page, Green, McBain, et al, 2016; Page, Green, Mrocki, et al, 2016). Modalities such as transcutaneous electric nerve stimulation, therapeutic ultrasound, low-level laser therapy (LLLT), and pulsed electromagnetic field therapy are examples of the modalities potentially utilized in the electrotherapy evaluation. On the basis of low-quality evidence, therapeutic ultrasound may have short-term benefits for patients with calcific tendinitis, and LLLT may have short-term benefits in patients with rotator cuff disease. The review of the literature identified only 1 of 60 trials to be of high quality regarding manual therapy and exercise, and no benefit was noted.

PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) therapy has been used for centuries in various forms and was researched notably by Nikola Tesla and NASA. Only recently have the benefits of PEMF therapy started to gain popularity, receiving the support of respected members of the scientific community such as Dr. Oz and double Nobel Prize winner Dr. Linus Pauling.
PEMF may seem like a new technology, however it has been used throughout Europe and other countries for 50+ years. Over 2,000 double blind medical studies have documented the neurological, physiological and psychological positive effects of PEMF. It has repeatedly shown IMPROVED tissue repair in far less time, with NO adverse reactions. In fact, PEMF has received a boost in exposure since NASA used the therapy to treat astronauts.

It is important to understand that PEMF therapy or any energy medicine device for the matter does not treat disease like a pharmaceutical synthetic drug. What it does is to assist the body so it can heal itself. The body is self-healing, self-regulating and self-regenerating and can heal itself if it is given energy and the right elements needed to sustain life.

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.

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.
The biophysical mechanism(s) of interaction of PEMF on biologic tissues and the biologic transduction mechanism(s) have been vigorously studied.27 One of the first models created was a linear physicochemical approach,22,24,27,28 in which an electrochemical model of the cell membrane was employed to predict a range of PEMF waveform parameters for which bioeffects might be expected. The most generally accepted biophysical transduction step is ion/ligand binding at cell surfaces and junctions that modulate a cascade of biochemical processes, resulting in the observed physiologic effect.25,29–31 A unifying biophysical mechanism that could explain the vast range of reported results and allow predictions of which PEMF signals and exposures are likely to induce a clinically meaningful physiologic effect has been proposed.22,28 The general application of this approach led to the BGS signal in use today. However, that signal is often only marginally effective because further dose quantification needed specific knowledge of the ion, the target site, its binding kinetics, and the cascade involved.
PEMF Therapy has developed an almost universal reputation for improvement in sleep. People with electrical hypersensitivity often suffer from issues such as: problems falling asleep, early awakening, multiple awakening or long waking hours during the night. PEMF therapy devices have proven to be the most effective in stimulating brainwave patterns to shift from disturbing patterns to patterns seen in normal sleep behavior.
Unfortunately, very few conventional, and even alternative or holistic, doctors know about these devices or this technological area. This is not a subject of mandatory education for doctors. Doctors often learn about these new technologies long after the public does, as has been seen with acupuncture. The process of educating doctors and other non-medical practitioners is growing all the time but will take years. Be patient and look for practitioners who have expertise in the area of PEMF therapies.

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.
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.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) uses electrical and magnetic fields to address a variety of health issues. Cancer is seldom found isolated from other conditions; many of our patients have multiple diagnoses, coupled with their cancer challenge. PEMF alleviates the pain, inflammation, and circulation issues associated with many of these conditions, allowing it to influence the outcome of cancer therapy protocol, both directly and indirectly.
Studies emerged suggesting that PEMF could modulate the production of growth factors32 and began to focus on enzyme systems with well-characterized calcium (Ca2+) dependence. By the mid-1990s, researchers were investigating the effects of electrical33 and PEMF signaling on intracellular Ca2+, specifically the binding of Ca2+ to calmodulin (CaM), using the knowledge that CaM-dependent cascades were involved in tissue repair.34 One important early study showed that RF PEMF could increase Ca2+, binding kinetics to CaM by measuring the phosphorylation of myosin light chains in an enzyme assay.35 This and other studies36,37 clearly showed the dependence of the PEMF effect upon free Ca2+ at levels mimicking those found in the living cell. Therefore, PEMF modulates a physiologically relevant cascade involving Ca2+, binding to CaM. The Ca/CaM complex then binds to and activates myosin light chain kinase (MLCK), which in turn catalyzes myosin phosphorylation.38
The list of conditions that have been studied using PEMF therapy is extensive and the research continues today. Pulsed electromagnetic field mats have become a more commonly used device in the last 5 years, and studies have shown that it has been a welcome change for those who are unable to find relief from other therapies, or when surgical procedures have failed.
Magnetic Field Intensity can be measured for both “Static” and “Dynamic” magnetic fields. PEMF is a dynamic magnetic field and can be measured with a suitable instrument. The Earth's core magnetic field (which you can see from a compass reading) is a static magnetic field and it is approximately 250-650 milliguass strength and varies at different locations on the earth.
Electromagnetic field therapy has been in use since the invention of electricity. It was widely adopted in East and Western Europe but its use was restricted to animals in North America until recently.[when?][7] Veterinarians became the first health professionals to use PEMF therapy, usually to heal broken legs in racehorses.[8] In 2004, a pulsed electromagnetic field system was approved by the FDA as an adjunct to cervical fusion surgery in patients at high risk for non-fusion.[8] On 13 October 2015 the FDA reclassified PEMF devices from the Class 3 category to a Class 2 status. PEMF devices that have been FDA cleared to make health claims that require a doctor's prescription for use.[9]

Using outcome measures such as the Upper Extremity Functional Index (Stratford et al 2001) or the Croft Disability Questionnaire (Croft et al 1994) do not measure pain and disability associated with overhead activities as the SPADI does. Although cross-sectional comparison of different shoulder questionnaires can show comparable overall validity and patient acceptability, it is important to include overhead activities since overhead work is an important aspect of her daily work. An additional benefit of the SPADI is that it is responsive to change, quick to complete, and scores are not likely to change in stable subjects (Paul et al 2004).
Less common causes of shoulder pain are suprascapular or long thoracic nerve entrapment. Problems not to be missed include thoracic outlet syndrome (e.g. cervical rib), circulation problems (e.g. axillary vein thrombosis), bone tumour, or referred pain from diaphragm or organs (e.g. heart, gallbladder, spleen, apex of the lungs, or duodenum) (Brukner et al 2001e).

Mini mat is portable and easy to handle. Total 4.6 pounds of crystals and ceramics generate Radiant Crystal Rays, Deep Impact FIR Heat. Amethyst and Jade crystals isolate and concentrate healing Infrared rays in the most body absorbable wave length range 4-16 µm able to penetrate up to 8 inches deep into the body. Tourmaline stones and ceramics are famous for pyroelectric ability to naturally generate Negative Ions upon heat distortion. Red Light Phototherapy rejuvenates skin throughout the body
Our Human Bodies and all living creatures are fundamentally electric in nature. We live in the world which has a natural magnetic field and there is the global “Schumann” electromagnetic field resonances (vibrations). Our bodies naturally interact with the earth's magnetic fields and has historically evolved to be in balance with this natural phenomena. Magnetic fields affect our body chemistry at a cellular level. PEMF Therapy helps to stimulate and re-balance our bodies at the cellular level. PEMF easily passes through all our body tissues to provide this effect and is a holistic stimulation. 

Secondly, it has been proven that a PEMF has no adverse effects on the human body regardless of age, so it is safe to use on young children and babies. However, many patients have claimed feelings of discomfort for the first time they use PEMF therapy, but rest assured that this feeling is purely due to the detoxification effects of the PEMF which leaves and uncomfortable feeling as toxins are expelled.

Amethyst Crystals actually elongate and amplify the natural wavelength of a key component to the treatments, the far infrared rays, allowing them to penetrate up to 7 inches deep into the body. By comparison, other far infrared technologies may only penetrate less than half that depth. Amethyst’s healing properties have been acknowledged and celebrated for centuries by ancient scientists and healers.  Now, modern science has confirmed the highly conductive properties of this remarkable mineral.  Amethyst crystals offer the most consistent and powerful delivery of far infrared light waves, and ionic effects to the human body.
Jusqu'à présent, je ne les utilise pas au cp. Mais je viens justement de recevoir le fichier de fin de CP, que j'ai commandé  dans l'idée de faire quelques fiches avec mes élèves pour qu'ils connaissent le fonctionnement et que l'an prochain, ils puissent débuter le fichier Ce1 dès les premiers jours. Après un premier aperçu, je trouve toutefois le contenu en-deça de celui des fichiers PEMF Ce1 et CE2. J'aime bien le fait que la progression soit lente (travail important sur les nombres jusqu'à 10 sur une bonne moitié de l'année) mais je trouve qu'il manque quelques stratégies de calcul importantes en fin de CP. Enfin ce n'est qu'un premier avis car je l'ai reçu hier.
