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.

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.
Centuries later, during the Middle Ages, use of these types of stones was again recorded, thistime referring to them as “lodestones” which were placed upon the patient’s body in an effort to achieve greater health. Then, in the late 1800s, science increased our understanding of electrons and electro-magnetism, prompting healthcare professionals to consider using magnetism and electricity for a number of different ailments, ranging from an inability to sleep to actual physical convulsions.
Successful studies typically use frequencies between 1-100 hz and with some very specific applications up to 1000 Hz have been used. Our Earth's natural environment and occurring magnetic field's though is what we humans have evolved with and we require. This is the best indicator of suitable PEMF frequency to bring back the body into it's natural state. The primary Schumann resonance would have the most effect although the other resonance points would also have an effect.
Pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) transduction mechanism based on evidence to date that many athermal PEMF effects depend upon nitric oxide cascades. PEMFs can be configured to modulate calcium-binding kinetics to calmodulin. Calcium/calmodulin then activates nitric oxide synthase and the relevant cascade ensues dependent upon stage of tissue repair process. This mechanism has been proposed as a working model for PEMF therapeutics.61

Results: Low-back pain scores for the 42-µs group decreased by 40.2% (p = 0.028), compared to 18.6% for the 38-µs pulse width group (p = 0.037) and 25.6% for the sham group (p = 0.013 per protocol population). Average leg pain scores decreased by 45.0% (42 μs, p = 0.009), 17.0% (38 μs, p = 0.293), and 24.5% (sham, p = 0.065). The proportion of subjects responding to therapy, time to 30% reduction in pain scores, and Patient Global Impression of Change were improved with the PEMF 42-μs device over the sham control, although results were associated with p-values >0.05.

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.

There are 30 trillion cells in our bodies and they all have a life cycle – some are replaced daily, others weekly, others annually, and some only every 7 years. It is  important that we ensure new cells are ‘born’ into a healthy tissue. It is equally important that old cells die, as they should. Regular use of a PEMF Mat can help keep the cycle running smoothly. Far infrared waves stimulate and strengthen the body’s nervous, endocrine, circulatory and lymphatic systems.
Tesla made this assertion after having used coils as big as three-foot in diameter to treat ailments without making any type of physical contact with their bodies. And it is because of this breakthrough device and its related findings that magnetic field strength today is measured in Tesla (T). While this was all new and extremely hopeful information, especially for that period of time, it wouldn’t be until more than two decades later that PEMF as we know it today would begin to really take form.
ATSEM : L'ATSEM, Agent territorial spécialisé en école maternelle, est une employée de mairie mise à disposition d'une école maternelle pour aider aux tâches matérielles impliquées par l'accueil de très jeunes enfants. Elle s'occupe notamment de l'habillage, de l'encadrement d'ateliers type peinture (en présence de l'enseignant), du nettoyage, du soin des blessés et de la préparation des collations (quand il y en a). Les supérieurs hiérarchiques directs de l'ATSEM sont le maire et le directeur d'école.
Although injections can be a useful tool in decreasing the inflammatory process and differentiating the impingement diagnoses, caution must be exercised in recommending steroid injections. Steroid injection in or near the cuff and biceps tendons can produce tendon atrophy or can reduce the capability of damaged tendon to repair itself.127–129 Kennedy and Willis130 concluded that collagen necrosis occurred with steroid injection. Controlled studies have been performed showing minimal effectiveness alone with the use of steroid injections.131,132

CLIS : Les CLIS sont des classes spécialisées intégrées dans les écoles qui accueillent des enfants relavant d'une déficience intellectuelle ou d'un handicap mental "modéré". Normalement, l'enseignant est un maître D mais il y a parfois plus de CLIS que d'enseignants spécialisés disponibles. Certaines CLIS ont une spécialité supplémentaire comme la spécialité "trouble du langage".

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.

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 …

While in the past people relied solely on the information and education of their doctor, today’s consumers hold the power of the internet to educate themselves and access beneficial information outside of their doctors scope of knowledge. Today’s health-focused consumers now have the ability to empower themselves with accurate, up-to-date information so they can determine which health devices are worthwhile and helpful, and which ones are expensive wastes of money and time.

Heading up NewMed is Business Development Manager Andy Smith. His father, and parent company director, suggested that Andy use PEMF therapy after he experienced complications following stomach surgery. After such a positive experience using PEMF therapy himself, Andy thought there would be no better advocate for it in the UK and that’s how NewMed began…
