PEMF works by delivering electromagnetic pulses or fields to the body’s tissues. These pulses generate microcurrents within the cells, which can positively influence various cellular processes. PEMF has been shown to enhance cellular metabolism, increase the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) – the energy currency of cells, improve oxygenation and nutrient delivery to the tissues, modulate inflammation, and support tissue healing and regeneration.
PEMF devices typically consist of a control unit that emits the electromagnetic fields. The treatment duration and frequency depend on the specific condition and the prescribed protocol. PEMF is typically administered in a clinical setting, but there are also portable and home-use devices available for certain applications.
