Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF)
Do you want an alternative to Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatories (NSAIDs) such as Rimadyl for your dog’s arthritis,, injury and pain?
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) is a viable alternative to drugs for the treatment of pain and inflammation in dogs due to a variety of causes such as arthritis, surgery, and wounds. Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy affects pain perception in many different ways. It affects calcium ion movement, endorphin levels, acupuncture point stimulation, nerve regeneration, circulation, tissue oxygen, and even cellular metabolism. All these affects help reduce inflammation and promote healing.
How does it work?
No one really has a definitive answer but there are some good theories and some good scientifically based research pointing to some very likely causes of the success of this treatment. One of the more prominent and most likely reasons for the reduction of pain and inflammation has to do with the calcium ion movement that an electrical field causes in the body. PEMF therapy causes a natural anti-inflammatory process to occur more rapidly. It binds Calcium and in a cascade of events produces Nitric Oxide (NO), a natural anti-inflammatory. Nitric Oxide then continues the natural healing process by reducing pain, improving blood flow, reducing swelling and helps in the production of a molecule called cGMP, a growth factor producer. This growth factor producer helps in the regeneration of blood vessels and tissue growth and remodeling. ~ Dr Daniel Beatty, DVM.
Enhancing Our Cells
Each one of the 75 trillion cells in the human body is vibrating at a frequency that is creating homeostasis, or balance, within our system. The Earth has a natural electromagnetic pulse that all life forms rely on for growth and development of tissues such as bone. Research is now showing that this pulse has naturally decreased over the last thousands of years – too short a time for our genetics to become accustomed to. We are also surrounded by electrosmog from cell phones, computers, microwaves, etc and this puts undue stress on our cells. Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMFT) is a simple, fast, and effective way to improve the healing potential of each and every cell in the body!
PEMF and Animals
I have been using PEMF therapy since 2011. To date, I have not had one client – animal or human – not thoroughly enjoy their treatment. Animals lie quietly on the mat, often falling fast asleep within minutes. Human patients, very much the same – total relaxation, feelings of contentment, reduction of pain, decreased stress and an increased sense of well-being and calm seems to be a common theme.
The Treatment Process
We offer Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field Therapy with every wellness appointment, either animal or human! The PEMF unit consists of a massage table size mat, a smaller pad, and a wand or probe that is for used to pinpoint smaller areas. Depending on your unique concerns, we will use one or all three of the setups. The treatment is easy, safe, fast, and affordable. We highly recommend that this technology be used immediately after acute injury for a period of up to one week, and more regularly for chronic conditions.
Where are Treatments Available?
Treatments are available at our wellness clinic, in your own home or at competition venues where we are in attendance. Outreach visits may incur a travel fee which will be discussed at time of booking.
Note: Our PEMF device – The IMRS-2000 – is from Europe where it is considered a medical device. It has also recently been approved in Canada as a Class A Medical Device. It is important to understand that we can not claim to diagnose, treat, or cure disease.
