What is Pulse PEMF therapy?

Pulse PEMF, which stands for pulsed electromagnetic field, is an innovative treatment that utilizes electromagnetic energy to stimulate healing and correct cellular dysfunction to improve joint mobility, decrease pain, speed up recovery times, and more. During a Pulse PEMF treatment in Atlanta, GA, patients can relax while the noninvasive and virtually painless therapy is performed without the use of needles, injections, incisions, or anesthesia.

What kind of pain does Pulse PEMF work for?

One of the most exciting benefits of Pulse PEMF therapy is its versatility in treating a wide range of conditions and symptoms. Some of the most common reasons for Pulse PEMF therapy include:

  • Pain
  • Slow recovery
  • Joint inflammation
  • Knee pain
  • Back pain
  • Ligament or tendon injury
  • Soft tissue inflammation
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Osteopenia

How soon will I start feeling better after Pulse PEMF therapy?

Many patients report an instant improvement in their pain or other adverse symptoms following a Pulse PEMF treatment session. In some cases, patients who find it painful or difficult to simply walk into the treatment room due to a sprained ankle, for example, may leave treatment walking almost normally. Still, it may take multiple treatments and up to 1 – 2 weeks to realize the full benefits of Pulse PEMF therapy.

Is Pulse PEMF therapy safe?
