How is a PEMF Therapy Treatment performed?
Using soft, flexible rubber “loops“ the PEMF device is gently placed over the body. These loops send a wide, magnetic field deep into the body to the cellular level. As the loop is placed on the body, the magnetic pulses are adjusted to a very comfortable level. It is safe, non-invasive and no medication or sedation is required. Horses, people and pets LOVE PEMF therapy! People and animals find the treatment very relaxing as the pulsing relieves painful symptoms and releases inflammation within minutes of treatment. It is often referred to it as being as relaxing as a “Spa Treatment” or Massage.
How does a PEMF Device detect and show areas of soreness or sensitivity?
When the loops are sending the Magnetic Field into the body, muscles will visibly contract with every pulse. You will notice a distinct increase in the twitching of the muscles where low voltage cells are displaying stress and soreness. As we spend time treating the noticeably stressed areas, you will see a diminishing in the strength of twitching. This diminishing effect may be seen in the first treatment or after a series of treatments which is evidence of the cells voltage being restored. For best results we treat the entire body and then go back to spend additional time where it is needed.
Why treat the entire body when the problem is in one area?
PEMF creates a systemic response by increasing the overall oxygen level in the blood which acts like a “Turbo-Charger” for the WHOLE body. Because of this, many issues, not just the targeted ones, also experience improvement. By increasing the blood oxygen and circulation of blood in the whole body, the weakened area continues to be helped as super oxygenated blood from the rest of the body continues to flow through the area (for up to 72 hours). Also, keep in mind that everything is connected within the body through fascia tissue. By treating the entire body, you are not missing any potential ailments that could be a cause or result of the known problem.
When will the results of the treatment be experienced?
Improvements are often noticeable immediately. After PEMF treatment, the blood cells are charged and able to deliver more oxygen. All of the benefits of the PEMF sessions will continue to manifest for up to 72 hours after a whole body treatment.
How long will the result last?
Results can last anywhere from a day to weeks or permanently, depending on the issue and its severity. Many ailments can be relieved with 1 to 3 treatments. For most performance horses at a show, great benefits such as increased range of motion and over all improved performance can be achieved with 3 treatments. Improvement in chronic issues and relieving symptoms will require more cellular exercise treatments.
Can PEMF treatments be done right at the Show or Event?
Yes. A horse can be ridden immediately before or after a PEMF treatment. PEMF helps horses to loosen up and relax at a show, relieves their painful symptoms & stiffness and helps them recover faster.
Is the treatment the same as magnetic blankets and boots?
While the therapy is similar, the difference is in the delivery method and the ability to focus the right level of power to the specific area that needs it. While the Blankets provide a low intensity magnetic field, it may not be adequate for deeper injuries or in denser parts of the body. So the main areas of difference are as follows:
- Pulse Centers PEMF Systems help with detecting where a horse is sore or injured because of the sore area’s responsive muscle contractions.
- Pulse Centers PEMF Systems are easily adjustable, high-powered devices. This ability to adjust the intensity provides the optimal level of power to a specific area and receive immediate results.
- Pulse Centers PEMF Systems loop cables are designed to address each unique body part of the horse. This is particularly effective when treating areas like; around the head and neck, hamstrings, legs, abscess in hoofs and acupressure points for a wide variety of issues such as colic and calming points.
PEMF Therapy vs. Shockwave?
The cellular exercise that rehabilitates cells is unique to PEMF. The main areas of difference are as follows:
- Shockwave has no ability to detect soreness, just treatment of a specific point.
- Pulse Centers PEMF Systems can be used on the whole body. Shockwave can only be done on a specific point that are relatively insensitive, such as back or legs.
- Pulse Centers PEMF Systems are Non-invasive while horses quickly relax and enjoy the treatment. Shockwave is invasive and painful as it creates energy with air pressure similar to sound waves.
- Pulse Centers PEMF Systems do not require sedation and have no potential to damage calls. Shockwave requires sedation, has potential to damage tissues, and must be performed by a Veterinarian.
- Pulse Centers PEMF loop cables allow you to deliver magnetic field energy to wider surface areas and control the penetration with the adjustable magnetic field strength. Shockwave delivers targeted energy to extremely small focused areas at its deepest penetration.
- Pulse Centers PEMF Systems’ magnetic wave travels much deeper into the body than shock wave which has a maximum penetration of about 4 inches
PEMF vs. Laser Treatments?
While both the laser and PEMF deliver increased energy to areas of need, the following are the main points of differentiation:
- Pulse Centers PEMF Systems have the ability to detect where a horse is sore or injured because of sore area’s responsive muscle contractions. Laser has no ability to detect soreness, just treatment of a specific point.
- Pulse Centers PEMF Systems penetrate the body completely but lasers tend to be more superficial in their depth of penetration.
- Pulse Centers PEMF systems can be used to treat all body parts including the eyes and head. Lasers can not be used safely around certain body structures such as the eyes and brain.
- Pulse Centers PEMF Systems can be used on the whole body and takes 30 to 60 minutes for a full body treatment. Since Laser has such a small focal point, it takes a long time to treat a larger area making full body treatments impractical.
