PEMF stands for “Pulsed Electromagnetic Field” Therapy. A PEMF device creates a gently pulsing electromagnetic field which restores health of horses at a cellular level by stimulating cell metabolism.
The PEMF device sends a pulsing electromagnetic field through the coil, deep into the body. As the electromagnetic field pulses, the cell membrane is gently pulled. On the off phase of the pulse, the cell membrane is relaxed. As the cells expand and relax, the cell membrane becomes more permeable, and are better able to release waste, toxins and inflammation and receive oxygen and nutrients. This receiving of oxygen and releasing of waste is what increases the natural charge of the cell. As the cell reaches it’s natural charge, the message of pain to the brain is reduced and the cells return to optimal health.
This cellular exercise is profoundly beneficial and unique to PEMF. Because the electromagnetic field effects only the cells that have a low level of charge, the damaged cells are the only ones that show pulsing or twitching. Because of this, PEMF is very effective in detecting the location of the damaged cells. Treatments typically last 30-45 minutes.
PEMF treatments are Non-Invasive. Results are usually noticeable after the first treatment! PEMF can actually show Where your horse is sore, while simultaneously providing relief.
Relieves pain with no medication, often with immediate but lasting response
