Heart Health and Knee Replacement Therapy with PEMF
Knee Replacement Therapy with PEMF, A Testimony
In a recent segment of Office Hours with Magna Wave CEO Pat Ziemer, the subject of heart health and knee replacement therapy with PEMF came up. One of our practitioners, Jason, recently had a knee replacement. He called in during Office Hours to share his testimony as he uses Magna Wave PEMF therapy to help in his recovery.
Jason was discharged about four days post knee replacement surgery. When he first started using Magna Wave PEMF therapy for his knee replacement, he was only treating the knee for five to ten minutes a day. The swelling wasn’t getting any better, but it wasn’t getting worse either. He described the inflammation to include his entire leg from the hip to the ankle.
He continued to treat the knee replacement with PEMF therapy until his first follow-up with his doctor, which was one-week post-surgery. The surgeon took one look at him and was deeply concerned about the swelling. They thought he had a blood clot and the initial prognosis wasn’t great. After some testing, they ruled out the blood clot and discovered his lymph nodes weren’t allowing the fluid to drain off his leg. The nodes were both bruised and in a sort of shock.
So, Jason began using the Magna Wave Semi at three intervals of ten minutes a day. He Magnawaved his entire leg from the hip all the way to his ankle, rather than just his knee. By day nine the swelling was almost entirely gone. He did increase his PEMF treatments as he progressed to forty-five minutes a day at different intervals, adjusting based on how much he moved around during the day.
PEMF Therapy Benefits Knee Replacement Recovery Time
Jason is currently in physical therapy, which prompted Mr. Ziemer to ask, “When you do your treatment on your knee, are you exercising your knee?” Jason says he recently began flexing his knee while he’s treating it with the Magna Wave machine. He’s focusing on his calf because a cyst had formed there. They cyst broke up shortly after he began a combination of massaging, flexing and Magnawaving it.
This wasn’t Jason’s first knee surgery. He went on to explain that in 2003 that same knee had him out of work for almost nine weeks. He’s thrilled that, with the help of Magna Wave PEMF his knee replacement recovery is taking half that time!
PEMF Therapy for Heart Health, Conditions and Devices
Knee replacement recovery wasn’t the only hot topic for this session of Office Hours. PEMF therapy for heart health was also discussed. One caller posed Mr. Ziemer with the question: What are the parameters for PEMF therapy around the heart for either an equine or human?
Mr. Ziemer explained, “If you’re treating the upper back of a person, that signal is penetrating the whole body. It’s also penetrating the heart. There’s nothing happening that is going to impede the electrical stability of the heart. The fact is you’re in a magnetic field all the time in your life, and you’re around various things that are creating signals that are going through your body. But the potential of the pulsing has never really been an issue with the heart.”
Mr. Ziemer cited his wife’s own use of Magna Wave PEMF therapy for her heart issues on her upper back as an example. Mrs. Ziemer has a history of heart concerns including a stent in her heart, an ascending aortic aneurysm, a hole in her heart which had to have a wire mesh heart repair. Her doctors were always aware that she uses Magna Wave PEMF therapy for heart health and conditions without negative effects.
Mrs. Ziemer continues to treat herself for herniated discs in her upper back just at the heart level. She’s been treating for 12 years and it’s had no detriment to her heart. However, Magna Wave encourages everyone to check with their doctor before beginning treatment for heart conditions. Ask questions, be informed.
Limitations of PEMF Therapy with Heart Devices
If you or your client have a pacemaker or defibrillator there are limitations to using PEMF therapy for heart health. You can’t use Magna Wave PEMF therapy over a pacemaker or defibrillator. However, with some of the newer pacemakers, doctors have said you can use PEMF therapy over your heart. Also, for those people who are treating their hips, legs or feet, but have a pacemaker or defibrillator, PEMF therapy should be fine to use on the lower half of the body. As always, you should talk to your doctor first.
