Pulsed Magnetic Field Therapy (PMFT)

What is PMFT?

PMFT helps the natural body healing processes by delivering a non-invasive form of repetitive electrical stimulation that requires no direct contact with the skin surface. Magnetic fields have been shown to affect biologic processes and be effective in a wide range of medical conditions as well as aiding sports performance, and simply helping to maintain good health through a range of benefits, beginning at an ionic level. 

The therapy has proven beneficial in stimulating cellular metabolism, blood and fluids circulation, tissue regeneration and immune system response. The treatment is effective at increasing bone formation and bone density, healing fractures and osteotomies, recovery from wounds and trauma, graft and post-surgical behaviour, recovery from myocardial and brain ischemia (heart attack and stroke), tendonitis, osteoarthritis, and impaired neural function or spasticity from central nervous system diseases such as multiple sclerosis and spinal cord damage. It also stimulates muscles, connective tissues, intestines, tendons and cartilage, the brain and peripheral nerve sites. Promoting healing and a return to higher activity levels. Functions that were lost can begin to recover.

How does the treatment work?

The many intra and inter cellular processes and activity stimulated by PMFT therapy lead too faster cellular and tissue regeneration. This fact is shown by the results of many studies on a variety of tissues, including bones, spine, cartilage, intestines, blood vessels, nerves, brain, and muscles.

In its simplest form PMFT can aid in many benefits across various areas of the body;
The treatment offers pain relief from preventing firing and transfer of these signals across nerve synapses, improving them in a short-term form and has shown better pain management in long term instances of its use.
By alleviating this pain response, it also aids inflammation of any tissue due to preventing an inflammatory response and thus this allows for better circulation in these areas to aid recovery.
The magnetic pulses also allow for better membrane permeability to allow for efficient oxygenation and ion exchange across cells. This will help aid damaged cells in repair and benefit healthy cells in balancing ionic movement. This will lead to increased cellular genesis, promoting bone, cartilage, tendon, and soft tissue growth. Improved calcium transport increases absorption of calcium in bones and improves the quality of cartilage in joints.
Through the same processes, vital organs such as the liver, kidneys and colon can rid themselves of impurities thus detoxifying the body and allowing better organ functionality. Further enhancing macro circulation: mechanically de-clumping blood cells, alternately dilating and constricting vessels, and aiding the growth of new blood vessels (angiogenesis).

Treatment for Working Canines 

Not only is the therapy effective in recovery and maintenance of conditions: it is an excellent means of preventing stressassisting regeneration and recovery after sports exertion. Through metabolic activation and blood circulation, more nutrients and oxygen are available to muscle cells, less damage is experienced, and efficiency is improved. Thus, it is an optimal treatment for aiding in muscle recovery and preparation for sporting events.
