Peripheral Electromagnetic Field Therapy uses pulses of low-level electromagnetic radiation to treat damaged bones and tissues, to stimulate organs, and to alleviate injury-related pain.
Increased endorphin release, increased mitochondrial activation, macrophage activation to dissipate inflammation, reduce scar tissue, and promote healing.
Activation of glial cells to repair the myelin sheath and reduce inflammation. Reduction in pain – inducing cytokines including TNF and interleukins.
Tissue engineering triad consists of signals, stem cell activation, and scaffolding well established. We can use types of energy to further accelerate this process with pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF).
Joints and Tendons
PEMF is shown to stimulate chondrocyte (cells that maintain cartilage) proliferation, differentiation, and extracellular matrix creation with release of morphogenetic proteins, growth factors, and anti-inflammatory cytokines.
