PEMF Therapy in Hazleton

PEMF stands for Pulsed Electromagnetic Field. The PEMF process at Sacco Chiropractic involves generating and directing powerful, pulsed energy waves toward damaged or injured areas of the patient’s body. These waves quickly pass through the cells in the damaged region, increasing the spin of the electrons contained within them as a result. It is this amplified electron spinning which restores the cell’s transmembrane potential (its energy) and brings the cell to homeostasis at the same time. Essentially, PEMF therapy is the induction of electricity into the cells to help stimulate or promote potential improvements.

Unlike some other forms of CAM, which only provide temporary relief, this positive cellular effect lasts for as many as four days after the session.


How It Works

Perhaps the easiest way to understand PEMF is to think in terms of each cell in your body as if it were a little battery. Like with any battery, sometimes your cells become tired and worn, whether due to age, stress, overuse, or damage, making it more difficult for them to fight off any type of potentially damaging force or illness.

Through PEMF therapy, your batteries (i.e. your cells) essentially become recharged. The energy supplied via PEMF devices gives cells the energy they need to ward off whatever is threatening them, whether it’s trauma or a disease-based attack. This makes it easier for your patient’s body to restore its health naturally, simply by using the electrical currents and impulses that are already interacting within and throughout their cells. In essence, high-powered PEMF is like a “battery re-charger” for your depleted cells.

Is The Treatment Painful?

The short answer is yes and no. This therapy will go right to the source of your pain and reproduce it. So clients will say wow, that is my pain exactly. Oddly enough it provides relief at the same time. The reason for this is that the pulse is recharging the cells that are injured or damaged putting positive charges into them so it stimulated healing.

  • Herniated Discs
