PEMF Therapy for Treating Enlarged Prostate
BPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia) is commonly referred to as an enlarged prostate. This is one of the most frequent medical problems in elderly males. The prostate grows large with age and can block the urethra from transporting urine from the bladder. Studies suggest that an age-related impairment of the blood supply to the lower urinary tract plays a role in the development of an enlarged prostate and may be a contributing factor in the pathogenesis of BPH.
PEMF Therapy for Treating Enlarged Prostate in Dogs
There is little difference in anatomy, physiology, and symptoms in humans and dogs with enlarged prostates. Researchers published in the journal The Prostate, a 2014 study made on older dogs using PEMF therapy for enlarged prostate. The idea of their research was to use PEMF therapy to improve prostate blood flow and reduce the size of the prostate gland. It was found that an average of 57% reduction in the size of the prostate resulted from PEMF therapy after three weeks. This study also supports the theory that impairment of blood supply to the lower urinary tract may be a factor in the development of an enlarged prostate. This study suggests that PEMF therapy for treating enlarged prostate could be a good treatment for humans.
PEMF Therapy Reduces Inflammation
An enlarged prostate can result in urinary tract problems, obstruction of the urethra, sexual dysfunction and blood in the urine. PEMF therapy is reported to have an anti-inflammatory effect and increases healing and blood circulation. A 2011 study on humans showed clinical symptoms of BPH significantly reduced after PEMF therapy. This study found that one of the highest PEMF potentials in treating an enlarged prostate was its capacity to enhance the effects on inflammation by reducing inflammatory cytokines and improving cellular metabolism. By reducing inflammation, PEMF therapy may prevent complications. PEMF therapy could increase blood circulation which would help prevent secondary complications caused by reduced arterial blood flow such as prostatitis and improve BPH symptoms.
PEMF Therapy an Effective Alternative for Treating Enlarged Prostate
Current treatments for an enlarged prostate include drugs and surgery. These treatments can carry increased risks for sexual dysfunction and even impotence. PEMF therapy could be an effective and safe alternative for treating enlarged prostates. PEMF therapy is used for treating urinary incontinence and muscle stimulation and also for helping with pain and edema. Studies have found PEMF therapy to decrease inflammation, increase blood flow and relieve pain. PEMF therapy is a safe and non-invasive therapy.
