PEMF Therapy for Sports Injuries
Magna Wave CEO, Pat Ziemer had a particularly interesting conversation recently, discussing PEMF therapy for sports injuries. He was speaking with a physical therapist about implementing Magna Wave into their practice, explaining how Magnawaving works and how PEMF therapy for sports injuries is beneficial. To his surprise, the practitioner looked at him and said, “I’m not a modality person.”
What is a Modality?
A modality or the definition of modality that pertains to Magna Wave PEMF is a physically therapeutic agency. When you think about it, a modality in this capacity is a tool used to assist. A tool like PEMF therapy for sports injuries. Things a physical therapist might use such as taping an injury, massaging, and icing the area are all modalities. These are all tools to assist in achieving relief and support.
PEMF Therapy for Sports Injuries?
But how? How does Magna Wave PEMF therapy work for sports injuries? It all comes down to cell metabolism. To put it very simply, a pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) stimulates cell metabolism. Cells produce energy needed for the body to function at its best. Cells must maintain a membrane potential of 70 D 90 mV (millivolts). Whenever their electrical potential drops below this range cell metabolism is reduced. It is believed that every illness is ultimately the consequence of impaired cell metabolism.
Magna Wave PEMF therapy works for sports injuries by improving oxygenation to the affected area, helping the body to heal itself. PEMF therapy for sports injuries is non-invasive, requires no downtime and no chemicals or drugs.
“Athletes have come to us taped and iced and barely able to walk,” says Mr. Ziemer. “We’ve even Magnawaved while an injury is being iced or taped. One athlete sat down barely able to put pressure on their injury. But when they stood up to walk away, they were almost normal and began their stretching process to get back into the next match.”
Some benefits of PEMF therapy for sports injuries include:
- Reduced pain and soreness
- Reduced inflammation and muscle cramping
- Speeds recovery time
- Improved range of motion
- Enhanced endurance
- Bone mending
- Prevents cellular breakdown during muscle stress
- Stimulates energy production in the muscle
- Treatment times can range from 10 minutes to 30 minutes depending on how many areas are being treated. Players can even be treated while waiting for their turn in the game. Keep in mind, if you’re dealing with an injury, verses prevention and maintenance, it may take longer to achieve your goal benefits.
