"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."
PEMF is clearly kin to TENS, part of the electrotherapy family. And yet it’s a different beast, much more exotic, with a more mysterious mechanism of action. PEMF is hypothesized to directly stimulate cellular repair, and not for nothing: it seems to really do that, and the effect is almost magical, speeding up bone fracture healing, and even restoring it in cases where healing has failed completely.

Recently I published the first new feature article for PainScience.com in quite a while: Zapped! Does TENS work for pain? The peculiar popularity of being gently zapped with electrical stimulation therapy. I’ve now added an interesting new section to it about pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF). It’s amazingly positive, and inspired by some fresh science …
PEMF allows for almost immediate increase in vascular flow, enhancing circulation and reducing edema, such as in the series on a nasal defect demonstrated in Figure 7. Another important use of PEMF configured for the Ca/CaM/NO pathway is in the treatment of chronic nonhealing wounds. The recommended treatment is 30 minutes twice per day until the wound is closed. Closure of chronically open wounds may be seen in 6 to 10 weeks with this treatment (Figures 8 and 9).

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.
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.

Because we are partial to Bayesian analysis here at SBM, we like to consider both plausibility and clinical evidence. There is almost no plausibility to the claims being made by EMP Pad. Low power electromagnetic fields have never been shown to have clinically significant effects on animals or people. There is no way to magically “heal” cells or make them live longer, or affect overall health with simple magnetic fields.

Although they are both mats and share some of the same health benefits, they are actually quite different… a PEMF device uses an electromagnetic pulse to administer healing.  The BioMat combines far infrared light, negative ion technology and the healing properties of amethyst crystal to deliver its.  The list of health benefit bullets above all apply to BioMat use, but there is a key feature that the PEMF device cannot list:
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).
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).

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.
As with back pain each of the possible contributing factors need to be examined and included in the treatment plan as appropriate (Kent et al 2005). This means that instead of lumping groups of symptoms together (e.g. rotator cuff symptoms) it has been suggested to split and recognise factors that cause laxity, impingement and/or lesion and provide treatment as the clinician sees fit. So far:

En formation initiale : Outre le tutorat des fonctionnaires stagiaires et l’accompagnement des étudiants en stage (stages d’observation, stages de pratique accompagnée), les PEMF devront intervenir prioritairement dans les ESPE, au sein d’équipes pluri-professionnelles. Ils seront aussi amenés à accompagner les stagiaires en M2, dans leur travail de recherche, dans le cadre du mémoire professionnel et à participer à des dispositifs de recherche-action initiés dans les ESPE.
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.
Over the years PEMF Therapy has proven to be effective on both acute and chronic pain. The body is comprised of approximately 70 trillion cells which communicate via Electromagnetic Frequencies. When the body experiences Electromagnetic pulses, it generates micro currents which target the cell membrane modifying and restoring normal function to damaged cells.

Dr. Pawluk also introduced a small, disposable PEMF device called Acti-Patch by Bioelectronics Corp. In Canada, ActiPatch is a Class II device and is sold over-the-counter. Health Canada has approved it for relief of musculoskeletal pain. It is not FDA-approved for musculoskeletal pain, so the efficacy of these patches is still unclear. It may have some benefit with superficial pain and edema.

Pour les corrections, c'est soit en direct (quand je circule, et que je vois quelque chose de juste, je coche tout de suite sur le cahier), soit autocorrection pour ceux qui en sont capables (ils viennent me montrer le travail et peuvent alors chercher la fiche de correction), soit par moi le soir, avec reprise le lendemain matin en tout début de matinée (j'ai un temps dédié aux corrections). Les élèves trichent moins quand ils comprennent que si le test est raté (parce qu'ils n'ont rien compris à la série qui précède et ont triché pour répondre), ils doivent recommencer...
