What Is Pulsed Magnetic Field Therapy?

Pulsed Magnetic Field Therapy (PMF), also referred to as Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF), uses electrical energy to direct a series of magnetic pulses through injured tissue. Each magnetic pulse induces a tiny electrical signal that stimulates cellular repair.

Healing of bone fractures and soft tissue, follows very similar progressive stages:
1. Hemostasis: The blood clots, and blood vessels constrict to halt any further damage to the area.
2. Inflammation: Pathogens and cell debris are removed, clearing the way for proper cell growth.
3. Collagen Formation: Collagen--and in the case of bone fractures, cartilage and lamellar bone--is deposited and formed.
4. Rebuilding: In the final phase of healing, these new structures are remodeled to mimic the original formation.

What does this have to do with PMF therapy? In order to understand how pulsed magnetic fields work, we need a basic understanding of how cells react, either when we are in pain or have suffered a bone fracture or soft tissue damage. Each stage deals with cells and how they behave. Pulsed magnetic fields help increase cellular metabolism by positively influencing ion exchange within cells.

This benefits the healing process in several ways: It stimulates tissue and increases blood flow, reduces swelling, and speeds up hemostasis and inflammation, allowing the body to move into the rebuilding phase sooner. By moving the inflammation stage to the proliferative (soft tissue) or reparative (bone) phase, it reduces pain, which is most associated with inflammation.

It should be understood that PMF therapy is not a panacea; there are many factors that contribute to the healing process. Centurion Pulsed Magnetic Field Therapy, however, is a safe, painless, and drug-free treatment method.
