Lumina Wellness Physical Therapy now offers Electro Magnetic Field Therapy. This therapy, also known as Extracorporeal Magnetic Transduction Therapy (EMTT), Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field Therapy (PEMFT), and High Intensity Tesla Stimulation (HITS) has clinically established its effectiveness over the past 30 years. These therapies employ powerful magnetic fields, but Electro Magnetic Field Therapy is best utilized by adjusting the frequencies to target specific structures and to penetrate deep into tissues with minimal discomfort.
Utilizing Electro Magnetic Field Therapy, we can specifically adjust the frequencies to not only promote cellular regeneration, pain relief, and increased circulation but also to optimize muscular strength and optimize motor control creating a more comprehensive and effective approach to our physical therapy programs.
This technology can also trigger an anti-inflammatory reaction and effectively facilitate decreased pain and reduced inflammation in the affected regions of the body with no reported side effects.
Our Electro Magnetic Field Therapy offers a wide range of therapeutic applications. It is particularly effective in the treatment of sports injuries, chronic pain conditions, arthritis, and post-surgical rehabilitation. Enhancing blood flow and oxygenation, it helps in reducing muscle tension and promoting relaxation. The targeted magnetic pulses can also stimulate the release of endorphins, providing natural pain relief.
Our innovative combination of corrective muscle therapy along with the Electro Magnetic Field Therapy holds immense potential for restoring and optimizing motor control helping to optimize the biomechanics of any affected joint dysfunction including complex lumbar and shoulder dysfunctions, improving the well-being and quality of life of individuals seeking effective and natural long-term healing solutions.
A few of the hundreds of research articles supporting the effects of Electro Magnetic Field Therapy.
Effects of Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy on Pain, Stiffness, Physical Function, and Quality of Life in Patients with Osteoarthritis: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Randomized Placebo-Controlled Trials, Xiaotian Yang, Hongchen He, Wenwen Ye, Thomas A Perry, Chengqi He Physical Therapy 2020 Jul 19;100(7):1118-1131.
Conclusions: There was a beneficial effect of PEMF therapy on pain, stiffness, and physical function in patients with OA. Duration of treatment may not be a critical factor in pain management.
Therapeutic effects of peripheral repetitive magnetic stimulation on myofascial pain syndrome Nicola Smania , Elisabetta Corato, Antonio Fiaschi, Paola Pietropoli, Salvatore M Aglioti, Michele Tinazzi’ Clin Neurophysiol 2003 Feb;114(2):350-359
Conclusions: The results of this study show that peripheral magnetic stimulation may have positive short- and medium-term therapeutic effects on myofascial pain.
Effects of Repetitive Peripheral Magnetic Stimulation on Patients With Acute Low Back Pain: A Pilot Study; Young-Ho Lim , Ji Min Song , Eun-Hi Choi , Jang Woo Lee ; Ann Rehabil Med 2018 Apr;42(2):229-238. doi: 10.5535/arm.2018.42.2.229. Epub 2018 Apr 30.
Conclusions: Peripheral magnetic stimulation treatment has immediate effect on pain reduction and sustained effect on pain relief for patients with acute low back pain.
Sacral magnetic stimulation for pain relief from pudendal neuralgia and sciatica; Tomoyuki Sato, Hideo Nagai; Dis Colon Rectum 2002 Feb;45(2):280-2. doi: 10.1007/s10350-004-6162-8.
Conclusions: This pilot study indicates that magnetic stimulation of the sacral nerve roots may be a promising therapeutic modality for pain relief from pudendal neuralgia and sciatica.
Repetitive peripheral magnetic neurostimulation of multifidus muscles combined with motor training influences spine motor control and chronic low back pain. Hugo Massé-Alarie , Louis-David Beaulieu , Richard Preuss , Cyril Schneider Clin Neurophysiol. 2017 Mar;128(3):442-453. doi: 10.1016/j.clinph.2016.12.020. Epub 2016 Dec
Conclusions: Combining magnetic stimulation with training of Multifidus Muscle in chronic low back pain patients impacted motor planning, Multifidus function and lumbopelvic spine motor control and pain/disability one week after the onset of protocol. Brain plasticity might have favored motor learning and improved daily lumbopelvic spine control without pain generation.
