How long to use PEMF?
Here is my generic answer. The length of time to use PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) therapy varies depending on the individual. And their specific condition. Some people may only need to use it for a few minutes at a time, while others may need to use it several times a day for extended periods. Generally, it is recommended to start with shorter sessions such as 20 minutes. Then you can gradually increase the time if you feel it is needed.
But I thought you might want more than just a generic answer. So, I thought let’s see what the medical experts think. I listed a number of medical studies in the table below and there you can see how long each PEMF therapy treatment they used in their studies. In these studies, the treatment sessions ranged from 20 minutes to 2 hours. The average was 53.5 and the media was 60 minutes.
Here is a graph to explain how long the PEMF therapy sessions that the researchers used.
How many times a day should PEMF therapy be used?
I recommend that you use it at least once a day. But, the experts in their medical studies listed below averaged 1.4 times per day and the median was 2 times per day. There are no know side effects of PEMF so, you could use it all day long if you wish. But, I think the most important is to do it every day. And if you are able a good strategy to start with twice a day to see faster results. In the next section, we will talk about how many days it should take until you see an improvement.
Here is the frequency the PEMF devices were used in the medical studies listed below.
How long does it take for PEMFs take to heal?
The duration of time it takes for PEMFs to heal varies depending on the individual and the extent of their injury or ailment. While some people may experience relief after a few sessions. Others may need several weeks or months of treatment to see significant improvements. Additionally, the frequency and duration of PEMF sessions can also impact the speed of healing. In general, you should see the benefits of PEMF after a couple of weeks. It’s important to be patient and consistent in your PEMF treatment regimen to achieve optimal results.
Looking at what the medical experts in the studies listed below, we can see the average was 7.7 weeks and the median was 4 weeks. So, I think you can be quite hopeful to see results from magnetic field therapy in less than one month.
One interesting study you can see in the chart to the right is the ninth study the treatment was only one time. The patients saw an improvement in pain and inflammation from that one treatment.
It is a good idea to follow the manufacturer’s instructions and consult with a healthcare professional before starting a PEMF therapy routine.
These common conditions treated with PEMF
- acute pain
- damaged tissues
- pain and inflammation
- joint pain
- cellular regeneration
- chronic conditions
- heal damaged tissues and bone
- pain from arthritis
- various health conditions
- reduce pain
- bone strength and density
All the above conditions can be treated with bursts of low-level electromagnetic radiation for an hour a day, every day for less than a month will result in improvements. No matter the nature of the problems, the age of the person, or the overall health of the person they will see improvements somethings in the first week or two.
And other therapies can speed up the process. I suggest you find a mat that includes far infrared therapy, negative ion therapy, and PEMF. I think you will see even much better results than seen above. And with no negative side effects. .
