PEMF Therapy For Wounds & Fractures
Most fractures are caused by a trauma to the bone like a fall or a traffic accident. Another cause can be fragile bones due to osteoporosis, or stress fractures in athletes due to overuse. Once a fracture is formed, blood supply to the area will carry nutrients and new bone tissue will be formed with time. Sometimes, however, the bone does not heal properly, leading to a non-union fracture. When blood supply to the affected area is inadequate, new tissue will not form and the bone will not be able to heal.
If the fracture does not show signs of healing for at least three months, it is assumed to be a non-union. These fractures usually continue to cause pain for a long time.
Applying Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields to a fracture, especially a non-union, stimulates the production of nutrients necessary for the healing process like calcium, and improves blood supply to the area, as well as reducing pain. The PEMF 8000 can also be used with a cast, in order to encourage the body’s natural ability to heal the bone. It offers a natural and non-invasive option of treating a fractured bone and reducing pain.
