There is currently a lack of guidelines based on randomized, prospective studies to aid the clinician treating partial rotator cuff tears and contusions. Also, most of the available studies lack adequate statistical power. The results of nonoperative management of partial-thickness tears are largely unknown because there are no long-term follow-up studies using a standardized treatment protocol. Nonsurgical treatment is still regarded as the initial management step. The goal of treatment in athletes with a partial rotator cuff tear is to eliminate pain and restore function. Treatment of the athlete with a rotator cuff contusion has the same objective. The goals could evolve if biologic interventions are developed that lead to a true healing response (Ferhat et al, 2016).

More recently our bodies have been bombarded with unnatural and harmful EMF's. As well we are working and living in unnatural environments which block the natural earth emf's (which we need). This is a similar experience of astronauts in space who were affected by the lack of the natural earths emf's and then negatively affected. With all this advent of “modern” technology now we require these other methods of PEMF Therapy to help bring our bodies back into balance. And there are many other things (pollutants, improper nutrition, and many others) which take the body out of its natural balance where PEMF Therapy is essential. The other factors such as proper nutrition etc.still need to be addressed.
It is important to understand that PEMF therapy or any energy medicine device for the matter does not treat disease like a pharmaceutical synthetic drug. What it does is to assist the body so it can heal itself. The body is self-healing, self-regulating and self-regenerating and can heal itself if it is given energy and the right elements needed to sustain life.
Although electricity’s potential to aid bone healing was reported as early as 1841, it was not until the mid-1950s that scientists seriously studied the subject. During the 1970s, Bassett and his team introduced a new approach for the treatment of delayed fractures, a technique that employed a very specific biphasic low frequency signal[10][11][12][13] to be applied for non-union/delayed fractures. The use of electrical stimulation in the lumbosacral region was first attempted by Alan Dwyer of Australia. In 1974, he reported successful initiation of graft incorporation in 11 of 12 fusion patients.[14][15]
Upon return to earth, many astronauts were noted with symptoms of depression, bone loss, decreased metabolism, impaired perception and muscle degeneration. Initially, Scientists were baffled; with nothing to work with they could not explain what was causing these rather extreme symptoms. After a period of extensive study however, it came to light that the PEMF created by the earth was integral to the well being of the human body.
Within the domain of shoulder pain, rotator cuff conditions can be caused by an inter-relationship between soft tissue laxity (i.e. ligament) resulting in glenohumeral laxity, impingement (e.g. due to bursitis or osteophytes) resulting in tendon compression and cuff lesions (Allingham & McConnell 2003). Therefore, treatment is likely to be more effective when all possible factors that can cause laxity, impingement or lesion of the cuff are considered. These include:
The mat conducts negative ions directly to the body to restore the natural electrical field of organs and cells. Anions, FIR and PEMF help to relieve stress, anxiety, fatigue and depression, relax and bring you the feeling of well-being. PUBMED publications show that these healing technologies may bring immediate soothing for joint, muscle and soft tissues pains and stiffness, reduce arthritis, rheumatism, lyme, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis symptoms, insomnia, sport trauma, minor strains

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.

PEMF Therapy has been proven to be a very effective method to restore and maintain cellular function by re-balancing the cellular membrane functions and improve oxygenation of the cells and nutrient flow and as well as to detoxify the cells. As more cells are re-balanced the natural regeneration process occurs. PEMF Therapy has also been shown to be effective in counteracting the negative affects of the BAD EMF's.

Did a quick search this morning and found the website which has so much info that I’ve been looking for. My husband has just been diagnosed and I’m researching how to help him. This is so inspirational and I’ve forwarded it onto our neuro physio. Oddly enough she came today armed with hand exercises which is what led me to this website. I’m in tears. So happy to have found you.

It seems most unusual that in a review of “all currently available treatments” for knee osteoarthritis (OA) by 21 authorities and “two experts in the field of guidelines methodology”, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy was not mentioned in the text or the 51 references.1 This is particularly troubling because over 2800 publications between 1966 and 1998 were retrieved. An identical search for efficacy of magnetic field therapy during this period listed 31 studies with at least one control group,2 including two double blind trials citing benefits in knee OA from a peer reviewed arthritis journal.3 4 In 1999 over 50 000 patients received pulsed signal therapy (PST) prescribed by over 1000 doctors at more than 300 clinics and hospitals in 16 countries, where it is usually reimbursed by fiscal intermediaries because of its proven record of cost effectiveness and safety. A summary of PST double blind and randomised study results in over 50 000 patients has been published,5 and findings in 100 000 patients (the vast majority with knee OA) have also been reported at recent international conferences.6 7 Although “alternative” remedies, ranging from minerals, vitamins, nutritional supplements, and capsaicin and diclofenac gels to sex hormones were discussed, in contrast with PST, none satisfied the category criteria the panel established to determine strong recommendation. Nor do any have the solid basic science studies that PST provides with its in vitro support for mechanisms of action to explain efficacy based on proteoglycan synthesis and chondrocyte stimulation results.8 9
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.
Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields influence cell behavior by inducing electrical changes around and within the cell. Improved blood supply increases the oxygen pressure, activating and regenerating cells. Improved calcium transport increases absorption of calcium in bones and improves the quality of cartilage in joints, decreasing pain dramatically. Acute and even chronic pain, also caused by arthritis and osteoporosis, may disappear completely. 

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).
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.
Alzheimer’s disease: improvement of visual memory and visuoconstructive performance by treatment with picotesla range magnetic fields; Sandyk R; Int J Neurosci. 1994 Jun;76(3-4):185-225. The author had previously reported that external application of electromagnetic fields (EMF) of extremely low intensity (in the picotesla range) and of low frequency (in the range of 5Hz-8Hz) improved visual memory and visuoperceptive functions in patients with Parkinson's disease. Since a subgroup of Parkinsonian patients, specifically those with dementia, have coexisting pathological and clinical features of AD, the author investigated in two AD patients the effects of these extremely weak EMF on visual memory and visuoconstructive performance. The Rey-Osterrieth Complex Figure Test as well as sequential drawings from memory of a house, a bicycle, and a man were employed to evaluate the effects of EMF on visual memory and visuoconstructive functions, respectively. In both patients treatment with EMF resulted in a dramatic improvement in visual memory and enhancement of visuoconstructive performance which was associated clinically with improvement in other cognitive functions such as short term memory, calculations, spatial orientation, judgement and reasoning as well as level of energy, social interactions, and mood. The report demonstrates, for the first time, that specific cognitive symptoms of AD are improved by treatment with EMF of a specific intensity and frequency. The rapid improvement in cognitive functions in response to EMF suggests that some of the mental deficits of AD are reversible being caused by a functional (i.e., synaptic transmission) rather than a structural (i.e., neuritic plaques) disruption of neuronal communication in the central nervous system.
As we can see, long-term pulsed magnetic field therapy has been proven to be safe, so you should be able to proceed with using it without any issues, especially if it makes you feel better. Remember, listen to your body and when in doubt always consult a professional who knows about using PEMF treatment. Approaching professionals who do not have experience with a particular type of treatment will almost always be counter-productive as they will not be able to guide you with a protocol they don’t understand. At such times, it’s good to help us spread awareness and ask them to subscribe to our blog.
A simple way to understand the how EMFs impact our cells is comparing the EMF to a battery charger and our body to a large number of small batteries (our cells). Every battery is made to operate properly within a certain voltage range. If you overcharge the battery it will burn out, this is similar to what happens to our cells when exposed to high frequency EMFs our cells are not compatible with. In comparison if you use the correct Battery Charger voltage the battery will charge properly, this is what the correct PEMF does for our cells. PEMFs charges our cells with the energy they are designed to operate at and need to operate at their maximum potential. BAD EMF's will burn out our body cells and other illness's will cause effectively a discharging of our body cell's.

Following this trend, many different PEMF therapy mats are coming onto the market and as a result, you’ll have to navigate through a minefield of inferior options. Whether you’re just looking to learn more about PEMF technology or you are in the market for a PEMF mat, we at PEMF mat reviews strive to provide you with the most reliable and up to date information to help you along your health and wellness journey
Having the intense pain, swelling with discoloration happening right before my eyes. Well, Dr. Pacelli explain that following his procedures would have me walking down the isle in the six weeks’ time, with no pain, swelling and the normal color to my lower leg and ankle area. He stated the bone would be mending but we would not know how much it would be mended until the day before that wonderful date. One of the major therapies was PEMF that I never heard of before but what a different it made to my leg.
Pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy isn’t typically as well-known as other forms of treatment such as chiropractic, massage, and physical therapy. Therefore, many people assume that it’s a relatively new remedy, leaving it wide open for speculation when it comes to its positive effects. However, the truth is, PEMF has actually been used to help people live a healthier life for quite a long time.

How does the PEMF machine work then? As each pulse of electromagnetic energy runs through the body, it improves the cells micro-circulation, simultaneously increasing the blood flow and amount of oxygen available to each cell, which in turn improves the electron transport chain efficiency. In turn this causes the ATP in cells to increase, making them function at optimal levels, making the body expel toxins, absorb nutrients and produce more energy.

We bought this through Amazon and have had it about 2 months. Here is the deal: This does work. Yes, it is low power compared to the high power (MagnaWave, Pulse, Curatron, etc.) systems. Those I believe are useful for injuries and seriously infirm people - broken bones, Parkinsons, diabetes, etc. Those will also detox your body very quickly, sometimes leading to herxhiemer effects, flu-like symptoms, acute exhaustion as your body deals with toxins released from your cells. THIS system will give you energy, relieve chronic low-level arthritis, minor injuries and minor neuropathy. You will generally NOT deal with strong detox from the OMI-Mat, as it's lower power. The trick with the OMI-Mat is that you MUST use it 20-30 mins EVERY day for at least 3-4 days (on program P-1, in the morning or early afternoon) BEFORE you notice the effects. I did, and realized that I literally "just wasn't tired anymore" at the end of the day. Gave me energy to keep working late, WITHOUT exhaustion. This is the REAL deal and it works wonders if you give it a chance. You can miss a day or two during usage, but after a while, at least for me, the effects wear off somewhat. But, if you use the energy to start exercising, to "get over the hump" if you will, then capitalize on your use of this and move into better health and even more energy. If you are elderly and homebound or sedentary, this can be the most important tool for better circulation and energized blood. There is nothing close in this price range.
A moving – or resonating – magnetic field can create currents without heating and thus directly alter cellular signaling. It has been firmly established that tissues including blood, muscle, ligaments, bone and cartilage respond to biophysical input, including electrical and electromagnetic fields. New studies show that with the proper field intensity and frequency, treatment with PEMF appears to be disease-modifying. The stimulation of TGFβ may be a mechanism by which PEMF favorably affects cartilage homeostasis. Through calcium-calmodulin-dependent pathways, PEMF may also increase nitric oxide activity.
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.
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.
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.
In my opinion this means that the regulations are entirely inadequate. The company charges £2,315 ($3,377) for their device, an added expense that most people suffering from a serious illness probably cannot afford. There is also always the risk that convincing someone a magic box will cure their cancer will make them less likely to pursue standard proven treatments.

Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy replicates the Earth’s natural magnetic field, which we were once strongly connected to. Over time this magnetic field has gotten weaker (an estimated 10% weaker since the 19th century) and due to industrialization and modernization, we are further separated from the Earth’s natural magnetic field. The therapy actually originated from NASA’s research involving the benefits of pulsed electromagnetic fields on astronauts for fatigue, depression, bone loss and other symptoms following even short trips to outer space. Scientists discovered that the cause was due to astronauts being without this beneficial natural field emanating from our Earth.
The primary purpose of this website is to give those interested in PEMF's (pulsed electromagnetic fields) insights into the fundamental significance, the scientific background and the effects of the increasingly popular complementary medical application of PEMF's. In the last 5 years much has been accomplished and positively changed specifically in the field of PEMF systems for home use.

Oxidative free radicals are formed when O2 reaching the cell is not burned adequately (by the mitochondria). Lab geeks call it “Oxygen Leakage”. The worse the leakage, the higher the oxidative stress. Get it? You can flood the body with oxygen using ozone or hyperbaric chambers and that’s fine, but if that oxygen reaches the cell and isn’t burned properly your oxidative load skyrockets. Unlike hyperbaric or hypoxic training, EarthPulse™ PEMF results in a natural rise of blood and tissue oxygen. It sticks with you for days. Permanently for a routine user.

Today we provide the largest variety of PEMF therapy products to the UK (with a few other health products to make it even better!). As a family run business we aim to provide our customers with honest, educational and trustworthy information. We believe that everyone needs PEMF therapy in his or her life, it’s not just a management tool, it’s prevention tool too. We like to think of it as our first aid kit!
