Some people report a mild headache after their first few PEMF therapy sessions. Since Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields stimulate neurons1 and enhance cellular repair2, these effects are temporary and are a small cost to pay for the repair that takes place. Eventually, the pain relief3 effects start appearing after the user is acclimatized to the magnetic field. Others report no such symptoms and take to PEMF like fish to water with zero negative side effects of PEMF therapy.
Patients and methods: A randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled, multicenter study in 36 subjects with persistent low-back and/or radiating leg pain after lumbar surgery was conducted. Eligible subjects were randomized (1:1:1) to receive one of two doses of therapy (42-μs or 38-μs pulse width) or treatment with a sham device. Subjects self-treated twice daily for 60 days. The primary end point was change in pain intensity (∆PI) using the Numerical Pain Rating Scale between average baseline (Days −5 to −1) and end of treatment (Days 56–60) for lumbar and radiating leg pain. Secondary outcome measures included the Oswestry Disability Index, Beck Depression Inventory-II, Patient Global Impression of Change, and consumption of analgesics.
Another study, in Bio-electromagnetics, looked at 11 different trials involving PEMF to determine its level of therapeutic effect as well as whether or not it was safe. Some of these studies involved PEMF’s effects on osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, or pain perception,while the rest focused on how PEMF impacted skin ulcers, fatigue related to multiple sclerosis, heart rate variability, and overall well-being.3
PEMFs have been in clinical use for generations. For most of that time, however, PEMFs have been relegated to second or even third tier status, with some ardent supporters, a number of skeptics, and most clinicians and patients simply unaware of their benefits. Without substantive information about a mechanism of action and frequently being the subject of overzealous marketing and inflated claims, PEMF devices lacked credibility. When the knowledge base in basic sciences allowed for the critical examination of PEMF in the laboratory and provided techniques for both targeting and engineering, the system advanced and the many effects of PEMF signals could be rationalized within at least 1 biologic cascade—one that is dependent on an electrochemical process and can be affected by exogenous signals. It was clear from this work that different PEMF signals and configurations produce widely different results depending on how well targeted those signals are to naturally occurring and biologically salient electrochemical processes. As this body of evidence grows and clinical experience widens, the gaps in the current knowledge (especially concerning optimal treatment regimens for specific conditions) will be filled. At the same time, we anticipate that improved signals and products that are more effective and more ergonomically designed will be developed, and that other electrochemical pathways will be targeted for additional indications. This may finally be the century of electrotherapy. In the meantime, plastic surgeons have at hand a powerful tool for the adjunctive management of postoperative pain and edema and wound repair. PEMF therapy is simple, cost-effective, has no known side effects, and may well play a large role in treatment of otherwise intractable wounds while reducing the cost of health care.
ZIL : Le ZIL est un professeur des écoles titulaire remplaçant qui s'occupe essentiellement des remplacements courts, urgents et non prévus. Mais il peut aussi remplacer sur des congés maternité. Lorsqu'il n'a pas de remplacement, il reste dans son école de rattachement où il aide ses collègues. Le ZIL se déplace en théorie dans un rayon de 20km autour de son école de rattachement, en pratique dans toute sa circonscription.

Figure 6 illustrates typical configurations of the PEMF units used in aesthetic surgery. Figure 6, A has a dual coil applicator for breast surgery. Figure 6, B demonstrates a single coil that is used for local pain relief following abdominoplasty in which the experience of one of the authors (BS) has shown that postoperative pain and edema is rapidly resolved and patients are ready for discharge on the first postoperative day following abdominoplasty for massive weight loss.
With regard to medical management, Green et al (2003) reported that for rotator cuff disease, corticosteroid injections might at times be superior to physical therapy. Buchbinder et al (2003) noted that for rotator cuff disease, subacromial steroid injection demonstrated a small benefit over placebo in some trials. Pooled results of three trials showed no benefit of subacromial steroid injection over NSAIDs. In the context of surgery it should be noted that no significant differences have been reported in outcome between arthroscopic and open subacromial decompression, although four trials did report earlier recovery with arthroscopic decompression (Coghlan et al 2008).
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.

Pour mes séances en production d’écrits/écriture essayée, je m’appuie sur les petits livres de la collection « Histoire de mots » chez PEMF. Le principe est assez simple : proposer une structure répétitive originale qui facilite beaucoup le passage à l’écrit. Comme les élèves disposent d’un modèle, la production des phrases et le passage à l’écrit sont facilités.
The Earthpulse™ PEMF generator is small and portable, yet stronger than all but the large and non-portable $10,000+ pulsed electromagnetic field therapy device systems. Strong enough to effectively penetrate a 16 – 18 inch (40 – 45 cm) thick mattress. A steep enough electromagnetic pulse to induce microampere current in tissue, yet small enough to easily fit in a handbag or briefcase; at a fraction of the cost of low-energy mat based pulsed electromagnetic field therapy device systems.
A, Poorly vascularized chest wound following 2 excision procedures and 2 courses of radiotherapy. Two attempts at flap closure failed. B, Wound is resolved following 9 weeks of pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF) for 30 minutes twice per day. The wound was treated simultaneously with PEMF and sponge suction for 1 week and then PEMF alone until closure.
Inflammation is caused by the body attempting to heal itself after experiencing injury. PEMF Therapy helps to reduce the inflammation by charging the cells with a gentle electromagnetic pulse. Once charged, the cells then increase their oxygen carrying ability which promotes healing, reduces swelling and pain. The electromagnetic pulse that flows through the body stops the release of inflammatory mediators and increases blood flow.

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.

Good Health, well-being and life in general depend on a functional micro-circulation, the blood flow in the tiniest blood vessels of our bodies, the capillaries. It is exclusively there where nutrients and oxygen, metabolic waste products and carbon dioxide are exchanged with all of the body’s cells. This microcirculatory system represents about 74% of our bodies’ entire network of blood vessels and is therefore one of the most important factors for normal, healthy body function. As we age, our capillaries become less perfused, and the flow of blood to the cells slows. The result is an increased risk of disease, fatigue and premature aging. However, we are able to significantly influence this process with PEMF Technology.

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.


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).
Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields (PEMF) works by improving cellular function and health at the molecular level. PEMF improves health by addressing impaired chemistry and the function of cells. Science has proven that our bodies produce their own magnetic fields. Everything works within the body by electromagnetic exchange. Disruption of electromagnetic energy in cells can cause impaired cell metabolism.
More than 33% of Americans suffer from chronic pain, and people are searching for solutions other than drugs, unnecessary surgeries and deep injections to provide relief. Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF or PEMT) is a non-invasive, painless treatment for various injuries, bone related conditions and pains. The treatment works by emitting a pulsating, varying intensity and frequency electromagnetic field, coming from a solenoid placed around the patient. The application of pulsed magnetic fields has, through research findings, been shown to help the body to restore normal potentials at an accelerated rate, thus aiding the healing of most wounds, regenerating tissue and reducing swelling faster.

Having healthy cells is not a passive process. Active, regular tuning-up of our cells is not only feasible, but also necessary to slow aging and reduce the risk of cell dysfunction. We are, after all, only as healthy as our cells. Imperceptible cell dysfunction that is not corrected early can lead to disease. Fine-tuning can be done daily in only minutes, using pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMFs). In addition, when there is a known imbalance (when symptoms are present) or there is a known disease or condition, PEMF treatments, used either alone or along with other therapies, can often help cells rebalance dysfunction faster.

Je n'évalue de toute façon quasiment plus rien de manière formelle. Sur les conseils de notre inspecteur, tout le monde est passé à une évaluation continue à travers les exercices quotidiens et l'observation et la connaissance fine que nous avons de nos élèves. Dans le cadre de la numération et du calcul, les test de fin de série me permettent effectivement de situer l'élève. Soit il a réussi, et il continue. Soit il a raté, et on revoit la notion. Qui finit donc par être acquise (sauf cas de difficulté profonde).
