Conditions Treated by PEMF Therapy | Looking at Intensity Levels

PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) therapy, with a variable intensity range from 1 to 100 Gauss, is a versatile and non-invasive treatment that can effectively manage a wide range of conditions. Here are some conditions that can benefit from this adjustable intensity and why different levels are effective:


Arthritis and Arthrosis

PEMF therapy at 50-100 Gauss helps alleviate the pain and inflammation associated with arthritis and arthrosis. The higher intensities penetrate deeply into the joint tissues, stimulating cellular repair and reducing inflammatory cytokines, which helps to restore joint function and reduce stiffness. This makes it particularly beneficial for severe cases where deep tissue penetration is needed.


Articular Pain and Joint Inflammation

Using a range of 30-80 Gauss, PEMF therapy improves blood circulation and reduces inflammation, which is critical for relieving articular pain and joint inflammation. The increased blood flow brings more oxygen and nutrients to the affected area, accelerating the healing process and reducing swelling, which in turn alleviates pain and improves joint mobility.


Bursitis and Tendinitis

For conditions like bursitis and tendinitis, PEMF therapy at 20-60 Gauss effectively reduces swelling and pain. This range is optimal for modulating the inflammatory response and promoting tissue repair without causing additional discomfort. The magnetic fields encourage the repair of damaged cells and tissues, which speeds up recovery and alleviates pain.


Cervical Arthrosis and Cervicalgia

PEMF therapy at 40-80 Gauss can relieve neck pain and improve cervical spine mobility for those suffering from cervical arthrosis and cervicalgia. This intensity range helps in reducing inflammation around the cervical vertebrae and promotes the regeneration of cartilage and other tissues, providing significant relief from chronic neck pain.


Chondrite and Patellar Chondropathy

Using PEMF therapy in the 30-70 Gauss range supports the healing of cartilage injuries, making it effective for conditions such as chondrite and patellar chondropathy. This intensity helps stimulate chondrocytes, the cells responsible for cartilage production, enhancing cartilage repair and reducing pain and inflammation in the affected areas.


Coxoarthrosis and Gonoarthrosis

PEMF therapy at 50-100 Gauss helps manage hip and knee joint degeneration. The higher intensities are particularly effective for penetrating deep into the hip and knee joints, promoting cellular regeneration and reducing inflammation. This results in decreased pain and improved joint function, making daily activities more manageable.


Discopathies and Vertebral Pain

By enhancing cellular repair and reducing inflammation with intensities of 40-90 Gauss, PEMF therapy can alleviate pain and improve function in discopathies and other vertebral pain conditions. This range is effective in promoting the regeneration of intervertebral discs and reducing the pressure on spinal nerves, which helps to alleviate chronic back pain.


Enthesitis and Epicondylitis

PEMF therapy at 20-60 Gauss helps reduce pain and inflammation in enthesitis and epicondylitis (tennis elbow). The therapy targets the tendons and the insertion points of muscles, reducing inflammation and promoting healing in these areas. This helps to restore normal function and alleviate pain associated with these conditions.


Fractures and Pseudoarthrosis

PEMF therapy in the range of 60-100 Gauss accelerates the healing of bone fractures and supports the treatment of pseudoarthrosis (non-union of fractures). Higher intensities stimulate osteoblast activity, which is crucial for bone formation and healing. This promotes the consolidation of fractured bones and enhances the overall healing process.


Heel Pain and Plantar Fasciitis

PEMF therapy at 30-70 Gauss provides effective pain relief for heel pain and plantar fasciitis by reducing inflammation and promoting tissue repair. This range is optimal for targeting the plantar fascia and surrounding tissues, reducing inflammation and promoting healing, which alleviates pain and restores normal function.


Limb Neuralgia and Sciatica

Using 40-80 Gauss, PEMF therapy can alleviate the pain and discomfort associated with limb neuralgia and sciatica by modulating nerve function and reducing inflammation. The magnetic fields help to reduce nerve irritation and improve blood flow to the affected areas, which helps to alleviate pain and promote healing.


Lumbago and Lombosciatalgia

PEMF therapy at 50-90 Gauss helps relieve lower back pain and sciatica (lumbago and lombosciatalgia). This intensity range penetrates deeply into the lower back tissues, reducing inflammation and promoting cellular repair. This helps to alleviate pain and improve mobility, making it easier to perform daily activities.


Luxations and Sprains

PEMF therapy at 30-80 Gauss accelerates the healing of luxations (dislocations) and sprains by reducing swelling and enhancing tissue repair. The magnetic fields help to reduce inflammation and promote the regeneration of damaged tissues, which speeds up recovery and reduces pain.


Muscular Pain and Spasms

PEMF therapy is effective in reducing muscular pain and spasms, promoting relaxation and enhancing muscle recovery at intensities of 20-60 Gauss. This range helps to relax tense muscles, improve blood flow, and promote the healing of damaged muscle fibers, which alleviates pain and reduces spasms.


Osteoporosis and Rheumatic Diseases

PEMF therapy at 60-100 Gauss supports bone health, making it beneficial for managing osteoporosis and various rheumatic diseases. The higher intensities stimulate osteoblast activity, enhancing bone density and reducing the risk of fractures. Additionally, the anti-inflammatory effects help to manage pain and inflammation associated with rheumatic conditions.


Tendinopathy and Tenosynovitis

Using PEMF therapy at 20-60 Gauss helps manage tendinopathy and tenosynovitis by reducing pain and inflammation, promoting tendon health and function. This intensity range effectively targets the tendons, reducing inflammation and promoting healing, which restores normal function and alleviates pain.


PEMF therapy, with its adjustable intensity range from 1 to 100 Gauss, offers a powerful tool for managing these and many other conditions. It provides a natural and effective approach to pain relief, inflammation reduction, and tissue regeneration.
