Magnetic Field Therapy for Pets South Sioux City NE

Biophysical treatments such as pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy are pushing patient recovery in new dimensions. Enthusiasm for these techniques is mounting, as evidence and applications expand. For magnetic fields to influence cellular behavior, signal transduction must take place across the cell membrane.

Magnetic Field Therapy: An Attractive Option

Biophysical treatments such as pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy are pushing patient recovery in new dimensions. Enthusiasm for these techniques is mounting, as evidence and applications expand.

For magnetic fields to influence cellular behavior, signal transduction must take place across the cell membrane. 1 PEMFs appear to alter a variety of membrane components capable of affecting transmembrane signaling, such as ion channels, ligand binding and alternations in receptor distribution and density. 2

Bone Healing
Decades ago, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved PEMF for the treatment of nonunion fractures.

More recently, a 2006 study in Connective Tissue Research indicated that an exposure of eight or 16 hours of PEMF significantly accelerated apoptosis in osteoclasts in vitro, suggesting a potential application for osteoporosis. 3

Tendon Repair
PEMF applied to a rat Achilles’ tendon repair model revealed an increase in tensile strength at the repair site. 4

Cartilage Health
Biophysical stimulation with PEMF after arthroscopic reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament limited the expected but potentially damaging post-surgical joint inflammation. It also shortened recovery time. 5

Chondrocytes exposed to PEMFs adopted a spherical shape and retracted their processes, although the clinical significance of these changes remains unclear. 6

Spinal Fusion
PEMF applied to either the cervical or lumbar spine after...
