Unfortunately our joints take a beating throughout our life. Being so essential to all of our movements means being used, abused and depended on. Add in sports and leisure activities and they often don’t get the credit or attention that they require until things have gone wrong.
Thankfully nature has accounted for this overuse to some degree by providing sheaths for our tendons and fluid in our joints to keep them lubricated like well oiled machines. But as with anything as life goes on, sheaths can wear down, inflammation can occur to pick up the slack and the balance of fluid can tip in either direction. Insert trauma, an injury, over flexion and a lifetime of use and you have pain, stiffness, aching, limitations and discomfort.
PEMF Therapy is excellent for not only speeding up the healing of joint injuries but in maintaining healthy joints. Preventing injury or degeneration is always better than having to endure the healing process!
I have a personal journey with joint health and PEMF… Let’s look at my MRI pictures…
(These were taken in Ukraine so you’ll have to excuse the Ukrainian medical terms)
This is often known as FROZEN SHOULDER… and if you google it you will read. “Treatment for frozen shoulder involves range-of-motion exercises and, sometimes, corticosteroids and numbing medications injected into the joint capsule. In a small percentage of cases, arthroscopic surgery may be indicated to loosen the joint capsule so that it can move more freely.”
I suffered with this injury for a year and a half trying every conventional medical treatment, injection, pain medication and exercise available...I drew the line at surgery and searched for something that would get to the root of the problem….the inflammation. Something that would attack these sacs of fluid that was restricting my movement, stopping me from turning the steering wheel in my car, rolling over at night and reaching the glass in my kitchen cupboard.
PEMF was the answer
PEMF provides the low frequency that our cells are looking for and actively responding to. When our cells respond with energy production this energy is transferred into the rest of our body. Blood flow is increased and inflammation is reduced. With a reduction in inflammation, connective tissue is restored to its original size and fluid in the tendon sheath is reduced. This translates into decreased pain and increased range of motion.
PEMF isn’t a pill, healing doesn’t happen overnight, it's cumulative… but encouraging a process that is natural to our body means that our body can heal itself without side effects. There is no better method of healing than allowing the body to get it done naturally. PEMF is a compliment to our natural energetic frequency, encouraging the body by providing a clean energy frequency that it can respond to and use for it’s recovery.
Fast forward… 3 years later I am fully recovered (and have been for over a year). Pain free with a full range of motion and living my life without restriction, medical intervention or limitations on what my shoulder can or should do. This is my journey with joint health and PEMF but you can replace the word shoulder with knee, wrist, ankle, hip, etc...any joint in the body. “Moveable parts are breakable parts” and this simply means we need to maintain them and give our body the tools that nature intended when it comes to healing.
With PEMF our movable parts can stay movable for life!
