"In October 2008 the Food and Drug Administration approved the use of PEMF therapy for treatment of major depressive disorder in PD patients who failed to achieve satisfactory improvement from very high dosages of antidepressant medications. Several studies reported PEMF therapy improved cognitive functions and motor symptoms. For example, an investigation involving three elderly PD patients with cognitive impairment assessed the effect of PEMF therapy on a disorder of the body image in which the patient perceives a part or parts of his body as disproportionately large. After receiving PEMF therapy, PD patients’ drawings showed reversal of macrosomatognosia (assessed by Draw-a-Person test) with reduction of the right parietal lobe dysfunction." 
EREA : L'EREA, Etablissement régional d'enseignement adapté, accueille en externes, demi-pensionnaires ou internes, des adolescents qui ont des difficultés d'apprentissage très importantes. A cela, il n'est pas rare que s'ajoutent des problèmes comportementaux sévères. L'enseignement correspond à des classes de 6ème, 5ème, 4ème et 3ème SEGPA mais il arrive que le niveau y soit encore plus faible. Des sections CAP peuvent s'y ajouter, permettant donc en 6 ans l'obtention d'un premier diplôme lié à une profession manuelle.
Exercise therapy interventions for patients with impingement are intended to restore the frontal and transverse plane glenohumeral force couples and normalize scapular motion. Generally they consist of progressive resistive exercises for the rotator cuff and scapular muscles and stretching of tight structures but they should also address the motor control deficits identified in patients with impingement. More detail on shoulder exercises is provided in Chapters 21 and 22. Exercise interventions have been supported in a number of recent randomized trials (Werner et al 2002, Walther et al 2004, Lombardi et al 2008) and systematic literature reviews for producing improvements in both pain and function (Green et al 2003, Trampas & Kitsios 2006, Faber et al 2006). In a Cochrane review (Green et al 2003), exercise was noted as effective in terms of short-term recovery in rotator cuff disease (RR 7.74; 95% CI 1.97–30.32) and for longer-term benefit with regard to function (RR 2.45; 95% CI 1.24–4.86). It should be noted that in patients with Neer stage I–II impingement there are no significant between-group differences (at 6 and 12 weeks) with regard to pain and function for patients treated with a supervised exercise programme or a home programme in which they are instructed by a physical therapist (Werner et al 2002, Walther et al 2004).
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.
Illustrations of some current postsurgical uses of portable/disposable pulsed electromagnetic field devices with signals configured for the calcium/calmodulin/nitric oxide pathway. A, Application to breast augmentation/reduction. The devices are incorporated in dressings/bras and activated immediately after surgery. B, Application to abdominoplasty. The device is incorporated into the dressing and activated immediately after surgery. The device is applied over the dressing and autoactivated every 4 hours for 72 hours and then every 8 hours for 72 hours and, finally, twice a day until it is no longer needed.
This article continues my series which looks at recent scientific advances in understanding Parkinson's Disease, and then considers the pragmatic outcomes which people affected can apply at home, in our time. In the previous instalment, we looked at how the brain's of people with PD are "noisy", being dominated by busy, anxious beta brainwave frequency activity:

So PEMF has been used on fractures for a long time now, but only recently have PEMF devices gotten small and cheap enough for consumers and less critical medical applications. Can they work on more ordinary problems? Like arthritis? Something TENS can only treat effectively with just the right settings and variables, that no one can seem to confirm? Apparently so …
In aging and debilitated cells, the inflow of nutrients accompanied is also accompanied with a current of toxic fluids. It has been established that pain is felt as a result of the stimulation of peripheral nociceptors. When this stimulation occurs, encoded signals of distress are transmitted in an ascending pattern to the uppermost cortical structures.
Adjuncts in diminishing the chemical reaction of the inflammatory process are rest, therapeutic modalities, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents. When the inflammatory mechanism is inhibited, the patient should experience an associated decrease in pain and swelling. Success in achieving these goals has been accomplished through an array of modalities to include laser, microcurrent, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, iontophoresis, and phonophoresis.117 My (MAK) anecdotal choice of modalities to treat the acute inflamed shoulder include cryotherapy and low-frequency transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS).
All energy is electromagnetic in nature. All atoms, chemicals and cells produce electromagnetic fields (EMFs). Every organ in thebody 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.
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.
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.

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.
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.

I know many people with PD have similar problems around food, digestion and medication ineffectiveness.  The reason for this, I believe, is in the role of the primitive Dorsal (Vegetative) branch of the Vagus Nerve in digestion, the specific part of the Nervous System also responsible for immobization/freeze responses in humans. Essentially, when a lot of food hits the digestive tract, this can send the enteric nervous system of people with PD into shock, activating the Dorsal Vagus, but in a way which then also inhibits the Ventral (Smart) Vagus Branch responsible for relaxed digestion. This enteric stress therefore results in increased motor symptoms. See
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.
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.
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.
It is important to note that PEMF effects are immediate and are not limited by pharmacokinetics because the induced currents are instantaneously present when the coil applicator is transmitting into the affected area. For example, studies designed to assess PEMF effects on pain and edema in a carrageenan rat hind paw model have reported a 100% inhibition of pain and a 50% reduction of edema in treated animals over a time span of 225 minutes62 compared with aspirin or nitroaspirin, which only caused about 50% pain inhibition at 200 minutes, using maximum dose in the same model.63 It is also important to note that resting cells (in homeostasis), in which there is no transient increase in cytosolic free Ca2+, do not appear to respond to PEMF, providing one explanation for the reports of no known side effects from PEMFs since the clearance of BGS devices in 1979.

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.

The charge of the cell membrane is affected by magnetic fields, causing the membrane channels to open up. These channels are similar to the windows and doors of a house. When the cell channels are opened, nutrients enter the cell more easily and the cellular waste is more easily removed, helping to rebalance and restore optimum function of the cell.

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.
The feasibility of PEMF therapy for treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has also been investigated in a single-group, open-label, phase I/II clinical study. Forty-one patients with advanced HCC received very low levels of PEMFs modulated at HCC-specific frequencies (100 Hz–21 kHz) and received three-daily 60 min outpatient treatments. No adverse reactions were observed during PEMF treatment. Five patients reported complete disappearance and two patients reported decrease in pain shortly after beginning of treatment. Four patients showed a partial response to treatment, while 16 patients (39%) had stable disease for more than 12 weeks. This study shows that PEMF therapy provides a safe and well-tolerated treatment, as well as evidence of antineoplastic effects in patients with HCC.
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).

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.
I am so excited to come across such a refreshing approach/understanding of Parkinson's sisease. I am a craniosacral and physiotherapist doing a bit of digging for useful info about gut health and P.d. for a client when I came across your website. I don't know if you have had any experience of craniosacral therapy, but big into the effects of whole systems harmony, polyvagal theory and impact on neurophysiology/psychoneuroendocrinoimmunological etc.
We carry a varied line of PEMF therapy products to support the needs of veterinarians to pet owners. All of our PEMF  Therapy Systems target tissue to help reduce pain and inflammation and accelerate healing. Dogs and cats can find relief from common conditions such as hip dysplasia, arthritis, muscle, tendon or ligament injuries, fractures, neurological conditions and stiffness and soreness associated with age.

Determining whether the injury is traumatic or is related to overuse is the first step to frame the treatment strategies. In the athlete with a trauma history, the initial goal is to control the pain and to restore full shoulder/scapula mobility and strength. The treatment for a partial rotator cuff tear in the overhead throwing athlete centers on the underlying deficiencies seen, such as loss of shoulder motion, scapula dyskinesia, and rotator cuff weakness. Mechanical flaws in the throwing or overhead motion may also need to be corrected.

The initial development of PEMF technology and its evolution over most of the last century was marred by poor presentation and, in many cases, insufficient knowledge of the scientific basis of action. However, plastic and reconstructive surgeons have been early adopters of the therapy and pioneers, along with their basic science colleagues, in developing what is now a significant and rigorous body of evidence around the mechanism of action. In this review, we describe the history, development, and eventual transformation of a marginal therapy into a technology that, should it fulfill its promise, will become a standard part of surgical care and may lead to other, more significant therapies for a variety of acute and chronic conditions.

“Paul – Well I have put the EarthPulse through enough testing that I can confidently say the device has real merit. There was for me a trial period so as to find out what settings worked best for my recovery. This has thus far been the results of my experimentation. Deeper sleep. 80% reduced hip pain. I can now sleep without throbbing pain. You have my full endorsement. God Bless.”

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.

You may have heard that electromagnetic fields (EMFs) that come from things like wireless routers, microwaves, and airplanes disrupt your biology. EMFs can alter your DNA[1][2][3][4] and reconfigure your genes,[5][6] which can leave your cells not really knowing what to do. That can result in a lot of havoc, ranging from being tired all the time or ending up with DNA damage and cancer.[7]

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.
