@marthaellen, do you mind sharing what PEMF is?
Jump to this post
Pulsed Electromagnetic field therapy many studies in PUBMED and others, listing the uses and successes of, including pain, bone and cartilage stimulation, stem cell work, I want to purchase one of the devices before I attempt THR and have my thigh bone ruined forever, etc, think I would rather hobble around than go thru what many of these people have experienced.
@marthaellen is this like a Tens Unit ?sounds like it might be but not sure is there anything you can say about this?
No, not TENS, the PEMF was developed by NASA during space program to ward off loss of muscle, bone integrity, when astronauts were suspended in space, also Russia worked on the principal and uses it NOW in their healthcare system for many diagnosed ailments, many studies published from around the world on its uses in cell experimentation, just google and PUBMED will show many successful studies. I am going to purchase a device and see what happens, google orthofix for a start, used for bone stimulation of non healing fractures, also.
@marthaellen Thank you this is exciting I have back fracture since 05 Im going to check out the website
@marthaellen Let me know how it works for you I read the website sounds good but was afraid to look at the cost might be to expensive for me .I,ll be looking forward to see what relief you get hope its 👍
Yes, expensive, but less money than many things people waste money on, eating out at good restaurant & paying for the friends with you about 3 times is more money, I am an optimist, gotta try it
@marthaellen You are right I recently bought an adjustable bed This will help open up the disc to let the pain be relieved plus nerve pain I,ve had ,was demonstrated and I did see the difference.Its coming today so hoping for a good night sleep .
