Treatment of fibromyalgia by use of PEMF
What is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition characterized by a number of symptoms, including widespread body pain, tender spots around joints, fatigue, sleep disturbances, trouble with concentrating and anxiety.
Because there is no way to measure or test for fibromyalgia, and because its symptoms may be associated with a variety of other diseases, it can be difficult to diagnose, especially bearing in mind that the symptoms can come and go.
The criteria by which your doctor will diagnose you for fibromyalgia include:
- Widespread pain for at least three months;
- Other symptoms such as fatigue and sleep disturbances;
- No underlying condition that might be the cause of your symptoms.
Cause of fibromyalgia
It is still unknown what causes fibromyalgia, but researchers believe it may have to do with problems in the central nervous system. Pain signals are processed differently leading to a heightened sensitivity to pain. Although different theories exist as to what triggers fibromyalgia, the consensus is that it caused by a combination of factors such as genetic, hormonal, and traumatic.
The effects of PEMF on fibromyalgia patients
We recognized the effectiveness of pulsed electromagnetic fields on Fibromyalgia back in 2002. Fibromyalgia more often than not is associated with low tissue oxygen. This is not a result of cardiovascular issues but in mitochondrial electron transport chain (oxygen metabolism) inefficiency, which draws oxygen supply from the blood too quickly and produces inordinate amount of oxidative waste.
Pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy has proven effective on pain for 6 decades particularly in Eastern European research. Pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) are highly effective in a diverse range of therapeutic applications with no side-effects or adverse reactions.
Pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) and repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) for fibromyalgia has not been researched much until 2011. Currently, there is momentum building in the research area and quite of bit of published research in 2013 but solely in repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS). Systemic treatment is superior as it gets rid of the cause of the pain by body healing itself of the cause of the fibromyalgia. It is still unclear whether rTMS is working on the cause of the pain, but it is clearly helpful in reducing the reception of the pain signals. This suggests that full-body application is the key to long term success.
Frequency specificity in pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy is currently being investigated in the West after Eastern European research found a particular frequency (10 Hz) highly effective more than 4 decades ago. Frequency specific microcurrent is one of such tools. It is actually the frequency specificity of that system that produces the miraculous effects.
Pulsed Electro Magnetic therapy can help by reducing pain, improving sleep quality, and inducing a feeling of relaxation, regeneration, and wellbeing.
