LIPUS stimulates bone union. The initial benefit of LIPUS on the skeleton in vivo is the induction of bone repair in fractures displaying either delayed union or nonunion. In a fracture nonunion model in rodents, 6 weeks of LIPUS treatment stimulated union in 50% of fractures. This compared to a 0% union rate in contralateral fractures treated with inactive-LIPUS (placebo). Clinically, LIPUS stimulates union in more than 85% of fractures that have otherwise failed to heal.
It is this amplified electron spinning which restores the cell’s potential (its energy), regulating its volume at the same time. And, unlike some other forms of CAM, this positive cellular effect lasts for as many as four days after the treatment session has ended. With that, PEMF therapy is: The induction of electricity into the cells to help stimulate or promote healing.
An open-label pilot study of pulsed electromagnetic field therapy in the treatment of failed back surgery syndrome pain; Wayne L Harper; Int Med Case Rep J. 2015; 8: 13–22 The primary objective of this open-label exploratory study was to investigate the analgesic effectiveness of pulsed electromagnetic field therapy administered twice daily over a 45-day period in 34 subjects (68% female) with persistent or recurrent pain following back surgery. Of the 30 per-protocol subjects who completed the study, 33% reported a clinically meaningful (≥30%) reduction in pain intensity (PI). A higher response rate (60%) was reported for subjects who had undergone discectomy prior to the trial compared to subjects who had undergone other types of surgical interventions (decompression or fusion) without discectomy. Improvements in PI were paralleled by improvements in secondary outcomes. Relative to baseline, responders reported an average 44% and 55% reduction in back PI and leg PI (respectively), and an average 13% improvement in Oswestry Disability Index scores. In the per-protocol population, 50% of responders and 12% of non-responders reported less analgesia consumption at the end of treatment versus baseline. Sixty-seven percent of per-protocol responders and 0% of non-responders reported clinically meaningful improvement in overall well-being on the Patient Global Impression of Change scale.
Bergman et al (2004) compared medical care (consisting of oral analgesics or NSAID, education, advice, corticosteroid infiltrations and physical therapy referral for exercise, modalities, massage after 6 weeks) to medical care with up to 6 treatments of thrust and non-thrust manipulative interventions to the ribs and cervical-thoracic spine over 12 weeks in patients with shoulder symptoms and dysfunction of cervico-thoracic spine and adjacent ribs. At 12 weeks, 43% of the manipulation group and 21% of the medical care group reported full recovery. A 17-percentage point difference favouring manipulation still existed at 52 weeks. During intervention and follow-up a consistent between-group difference in severity of the main complaint, shoulder pain and disability, and general health favoured the manual therapy group.
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
It is interesting to note that one of the authors (BS) showed significant increases in angiogenesis in an arterial loop model in the rat using the early diathermy-based RF device (Figure 2).51,52 It is also interesting that the use of the BGS signal on human umbilical vein endothelial cells in culture significantly augmented tubule formation53 via a PEMF effect on the production of fibroblast growth factor 2 (FGF-2). When FGF-2 was inhibited, the PEMF effect disappeared. This study was extended to examine the effect of BGS on wound repair in diabetic and normal mice,54 in which it was also shown that PEMF significantly increased neovascularization, particularly in diabetic mice, via endogenous FGF-2 increase.
Since the beginning of human civilization, magnetic fields have been used for pain relief and to promote healing. However a breakthrough came through a study in the 1940s that gathered that the permeability of cell membranes was directly affected by pulsed magnetic fields. The transmission of electrical impulses via cell membranes results in the generation of the body’s magnetic field which also has a pulse or a frequency.
- choisir de les faire tous commencer à la série 1, histoire que tout le monde prenne confiance sur une série simple. Rapidement, il va y a voir des écarts. Certains élèves feront 2 voire 3 fiches au cours d'une même séance, quand d'autre n'en feront qu'une, e, ayant éventuellement besoin d'y revenir. Dans ce cas, prévois un nombre suffisant de photocopies des fiches de la série 1.
While it’s true not that all pain could possibly healed by a single method, as the causes of the pain matter most and may not be treatable by PEMF, which targets to heal the cause of the pain as well. For example, PEMF is not effective in pathogenic environments as the microorganisms will also find PEMF nutritious and thrive in it. In such pathogenic environment, such as in case of Lymes Disease, electric zapper devices might be the best electrotherapy mode rather than PEMF. PEMF could employed for rapid recovery after the pathogens are over-powered or vanquished by using electrotherapy.
Those who need more localized treatment for the joints, extremities, head or neck area, may wish to consider using the OMI PEMF ring. This ring can be easily and comfortably placed around the neck to address pain or other health concerns in those areas. This could be a gentle form of therapy for those with injury to the cervical spine, as well as for those who suffer from chronic headaches.
The scientific reviews of PEMF used for this purpose are unstintingly positive.1Shi Hf, Xiong J, Chen Yx, et al. Early application of pulsed electromagnetic field in the treatment of postoperative delayed union of long-bone fractures: a prospective randomized controlled study. BMC Musculoskelet Disord. 2013;14:35. PubMed #23331333. PainSci #53405. “Fracture patients treated with an early application of PEMF achieved a significantly increased rate of union and an overall reduced suffering time compared with patients that receive PEMF after the 6 months or more of delayed union, as described by others.” 2Assiotis A, Sachinis NP, Chalidis BE. Pulsed electromagnetic fields for the treatment of tibial delayed unions and nonunions. A prospective clinical study and review of the literature. J Orthop Surg Res. 2012;7:24. PubMed #22681718. PainSci #53378. “PEMF stimulation is an effective non-invasive method for addressing non-infected tibial union abnormalities. Its success is not associated with specific fracture or patient related variables and it couldn't be clearly considered a time-dependent phenomenon.” When does this happen in musculoskeletal medicine? Never, that’s when!

Our entire frequency range is under 15 Hz; and with these magnetic frequencies, we can give you the best sleep you’ve had in decades, or, alternatively help wake you up at a specific time in the morning; or keep you alert through most of the night with less caffeine.
To apply PEMF therapy, an electrical current is run through a copper coil which produces a magnetic field. This has been incorporated into various types of devices, with a full body therapy mat being the most effective and oft-used device. One either lays on the mat or places the applicator in the region that needs to be treated. PEMFs will enter through the body targeting the muscle tissue, cells, and even bones.
B2i : Le B2i, brevet informatique et internet, est un référentiel définissant des niveaux de maîtrise des nouvelles technologies, notamment l'ordinateur et internet. Aujourd'hui, tous les élèves doivent sortir de l'école primaire en maîtrisant les compétences du B2i niveau 1. Dans les faits, il demeure encore des difficultés de mise en oeuvre du dispositif, notamment pour des raisons de coût du matériel informatique.
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.
Je fais maths tous les après-midi. Les trois niveaux en même temps. Cela me permet de faire fonctionner à plein l'entraide et de faire travailler les élèves au niveau qui leur correspond. Ainsi, j'ai actuellement un élève de CE1 qui cartonne en math (il a directement attaqué le fichier CE2 cette année et est en tête du groupe). L'an passé, j'avais à l'inverse un élève très en difficulté qui travaillait sur le fichier CE1 alors qu'il était au CE2. Alors oui, cet élève n'a pas suivi le programme de CE2 MAIS il a progressé, sans installer de nouvelles lacunes. Et le fait de se voir progresser (changer de série) a renforcé son estime de lui.
