All athletes, from weekend runners to yoga experts, physical labourers to Olympic gold medalists, are hard on their bodies. To be able to maintain a high level of activity, maximize performance and prevent injury, all body systems need to be functioning optimally.
Magnetic resonance stimulation uses weak pulsing magnetic fields to optimize cell functions through increased ion transfer.
The Omnium1 PEMF system allows muscles to work harder, longer, and recover faster. For the competitive athlete this means, a stronger finish to a race, and shorter rest periods between games and practices. For the casual exerciser this means less muscle soreness after the dreaded “leg day”. By achieving and maintaining optimal cell functions with daily us of an Omnium1 PEMF system, a healthier environment is created within the body. Athletes who follow a daily PEMF protocol have more to give on game day and are less likely to succumb to injury.
What are the basic Physiological Responses from Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field Therapy?
Using a magnetic therapy system before physical activity has many real benefits for the athlete. PEMFs stimulate a process called myosin phosphorylation, which is the process of energy production in the muscle. Phosphorylation produces ATP, which is essential for cellular energy. ATP depletion, which happens with strenuous activity, causes muscles to weaken and potentially spasm. Rest naturally restores ATP, assuming the body is healthy enough to replenish it. PEMFs restore ATP by stimulating the myosin phosphorylation process. In fact, according to Dr William Pawluk MD, through an increased motion of ions and electrolytes, magnetic fields can help cells increase their energy by up to 500%.
Magnetic fields also increase the uptake of oxygen into the muscle. Research show that with the aid of the PEMF’s cells are able to better utilize the available oxygen, increasing endurance. Magnetic therapies also increase circulation, further helping tissues get the nutrition and oxygen they need, while expelling the waste they produce.
Using a magnetic therapy system after strenuous activity can both greatly diminish soreness and reduce painful muscle spasms and cramping. The body has a somewhat limited repertoire of reacting to damage, injury, or illness.
Training and workouts, even informal athletic activity like yard work, often cause muscle soreness from the buildup of lactic acid and breakdown of tissues.
All injuries produce swelling in the tissues, as does exercise itself. Swelling delays the ability of the tissues to be nourished with oxygen and nutrients. This is why you see athletes frequently being treated with ice packs. Ice packs reduce superficial swelling, but swelling or bruising deep in a muscle will not respond as well to ice. Conversely, PEMFs penetrate tissues deeply without risk to the superficial tissues. The PEMFs reduce swelling and speed removal of the blood in a bruise, leading to faster recovery and return to activity, competition or training.
From this, we can see that all athletes, competitive or otherwise, should be using daily PEMF treatments for preventative reasons and for overall health maintenance. In addition, the treatment of any injuries with PEMF’s accelerates even subtle healing, allowing the athlete to be healthier, stronger and perform better.
The effects of Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field therapy are becoming increasingly apparent, particularly in professional high performance sports. Because of the exertion of daily endurance training, top-athletes are far more sensitive. Unlike the average person, however, they are aware of the smallest changes in their bodies. Today, many world champions and Olympic medalists from a variety of sports rely on PEMF Therapy for medical and physiotherapeutic treatments. To legally optimize endurance, they count predominantly on the natural effects of PEMF therapy. However, PEMF therapy is not limited to these athletes as leisure and amateur sports people also benefit from its positive effects.
