PEMF stands for Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Fields.  Science teaches us that everything is energy, and all energy is electromagnetic in nature.  All cells, atoms and chemicals produce electromagnetic fields (EMF's).  Every organ in the body also produces its own electromagnetic field.  Communication between all of the 70 trillion cells in the body takes place through electromagnetic frequencies.  Any interruption in normal electromagnetic frequencies will result in subnormal function of the body.  This is to say that electromagnetic energy controls the chemistry of the body which in turn controls tissue function, so if there is a disruption the disease process can begin, or continue.

Pulsed electromagnetic fields address the physics of the body which addresses the impaired chemistry and the function of cells, which can bring about healing.  PEMF's deliver beneficial EMF's and frequencies to the cells.  Dr. William Pawluk, MD states that "Low frequency PEMF's of even the weakest strengths pass right through the body, penetrating every cell, tissue, organ and even bone without being absorbed or altered.  As they pass through, they stimulate most of the electrical and chemical processes in the tissues."  Thus, PEMF's can be a very positive therapy designed to result in improved cellular health and function.


At Oakes Chiropractic Health Center we use the most powerful "high power" PEMF  unit in the industry called the PEMF 4000 and as a result the pulse enters the body faster, resulting in shorter treatment times.  some of the reported effects include:

  • Vasodilation                                                                    
  • Stress Reduction
  • Reduced platelet adhesion
  • Fibrinolysis
  • Acceleration of enzyme reactions
  • Enhanced calcium, sodium and other ion movement
  • Improved cellular energy
  • Immunity changes
  • Amino acid changes
  • Repair of soft tissues
  • Free radical effects
  • Anti-oxidant stimulation
  • Brain function effects
  • Improved fertility
  • Receptor binding changes
  • Stress reduction
  • Hormonal changes
  • Learning changes
  • Scar modification
  • Enhanced metabolism
  • Water modification
  • electrolyte changes
  •  Bone healing
  • Acceleration of bone formation
  • Autonomic Nervous System activation
  • Enhanced oxygenation
  • Inflammation reduction
  • Sleep improvement
  • Liver function changes
  • Enhanced wound healing
