Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field Therapy also called PEMF, is a technique most commonly used in the field of orthopedics for the treatment of non-union fractures, failed fusions, congenital pseudarthrosis and depression. PEMF Therapy in Thailand, pulses a magnetic field into the body, creating an extraordinary healing effect which results to lesser pain, swelling reduction, and an increased range of motion on the treated areas. Studies also demonstrated the effectiveness of PEMF in healing soft-tissue wounds, suppressing inflammatory responses at the cell membrane level to alleviate pain, and increasing range of motion.


How does PEMF  Work for Pain Management in Thailand?

PEMF  is a very efficient and simple therapy method. During the treatment, the ions (electrically charged particles surrounding the cells) that move into an area of pulsating magnetic fields will be influenced by the rhythm of the pulsation. The pulsating magnetic fields then dramatically influence the ion exchange at the cellular level and greatly improve the oxygen utilization of diseased or damaged tissues thus promoting healing.

It was also established that Pulsating Magnetic Fields reduces pain sensations almost immediately due to the increase in the oxygen partial pressure in the terminal tissue and the increase in the local perfusion and velocity of the capillary blood flow alleviating the accumulation of metabolites due to small vascularization and blood flow (transmitted by the sympathetic nervous system).


What are the contraindications for PEMF Pain Management in Thailand?

There are no contraindications to Magnetic Therapy except in cases of hemorrhage or where electrical implants are in use. There is also no over dosage for this treatment technique.

Since it is heatless, all implants (except heart pacemakers) can be treated.


What are the Indications for PEMF Pain Management in Thailand?

PEMF has already been approved by FDA to be used for the following:

1.      Anti-Aging:

  • Improve sleep quality
  • Promote cellular detoxification
  • Reduces platelet adhesion
  • Reduces the effects of stress on the body
  • Improve energy
  • Increase the uptake of nutrients
  • Improve circulation and blood and tissue oxygenation

2.      Healing:

  • Stimulate RNA and DNA
  • Improve the ability to regenerate cell
  • Accelerate repair of bone and soft tissue
  • Accelerate healing

3.      Well-Being:

  • ·        Reduce Blood Pressure
  • ·        Reduce Cholesterol levels
  • ·        Balance the immune system
  • ·        Prevents ischemic heart disease and stroke

4.      Pain Reduction:

  • Reduces pain and inflammation
  • Relax muscles


FACTS about PEMF Pain Management in Thailand:

Patients who had gone through the therapy feel the pulsation or the vibration of the magnetic but no pain was reported. There are no special preparations required for the treatment so the therapy can be scheduled right after the consultation.


Each treatment varies in duration, typically ranging from 5mins to a maximum of 20mins. The first session will yield noticeable result and pain relief, however, it may take more than 5 treatment sessions for more chronic conditions.
