High-intensity PEMF therapy is quite a powerful and rapid method to recover from a variety conditions. Most commercial PEMF systems rarely get above 100 gauss. Most whole-body PEMF systems fall in this category. This is where TeslaFit PEMF systems differ, our systems start their max-output range at 3990 Gauss.
Why would someone need high-intensity PEMF therapy and what are it’s benefits?
It all depends on what you need. Are you a practitioner who needs to provide rapid relief from musculoskeletal pain? Low intensities aren’t going to be your best option. Are you an electro-sensitive person who wants to bring about gradual subtle changes to an already over-stimulated body? Medium or high intensities may aggravate you. Very low intensities will be better, at least at the beginning.
The choice of selecting intensity of a PEMF system is often tied to how quickly you can expect to see results with that system, with higher intensities generally producing faster results (especially in terms of pain relief ), musculoskeletal healing, injury recovery, and tissue regeneration.
Most clinical research has been done on medium to high intensity systems. Some people do see significant benefits from low and very low intensity systems although our experience echoes the evidence from a review of the available research that shows that benefits tend to happen faster and better with medium to high intensity PEMF systems for individual health conditions.
The size of the applicator or applicators will determine the surface area of treatment. A long and wide pad applicator will typically treat the entire body. A regional applicator is one that treats an area of the body, for example, the abdomen, the chest, the pelvis, hips, shoulders, or upper or lower back. These are often called pillow applicators and come in various sizes depending on the system. Local applicators treat a small area, for example, a hand, a knee, elbow, foot, or part of the shoulder. There are many different configurations for these including small flat pads, circular open coils, and paddles. While not always true, generally, the smaller the applicator the higher the field intensity, even with the same PEMF system. This happens because the control units will put out the same amount of energy whether a large area of coil is used or a smaller area. With smaller area coils, more energy is delivered to the coil resulting in a higher field intensity.
You need to have a good understanding of the intensities of the system you are using. Most of the time smaller applicators are significantly stronger than the whole-body pads. While whole-body pads may be effective for local problems, extra attention with a higher intensity local applicator may be better. Mild problems that don’t have deep levels of pathology, such as a mild muscle or ligament strain, a superficial burn, cut, insect bite, bruise or puncture, will heal rapidly. In this situation, a minimum amount of stimulation may be necessary.
Every treatment is a trial and error process. If you use your system for just five or ten minutes, or use it at a low intensity setting and do not get the results you want, you may need to increase your treatment time or intensity level. The body will tell you what it needs. There is no hard and fast rule as to the maximum treatment time that can be used. PEMF manuals may indicate what they recommend, but recall that it is almost impossible to do harm. You cannot overdose on the PEMFs. If you listen to your body, it will tell you when it has had enough for that treatment session or that day, usually in the form of jitteriness or a feeling of excessive energy. The rule of thumb is that with high intensity PEMF systems, electronic devices should be kept about two to three feet away.
Always follow manufacturer instructions. Even if one wants a high intensity system for healing, there will still be the limiting factor of how the tissue can possibly respond. PEMFs cannot make tissues do anything they aren’t naturally capable of doing anyway. Higher intensity and more time do not always get the job done faster or better. While little harm can be done from extended exposure, results may not happen any faster, nor as fast as one expects or hopes. Finding the right balance then of time and intensity becomes the determining factor in the success and timing of healing.
It’s preferable to do daily treatments with your chosen PEMF system as opposed to infrequent high intensity treatments or an increased intensive number of treatments back to back to speed things up. The dynamics or momentum of the underlying problem often determines the level of intensity or density of number of treatments. Understanding the “momentum” or aggressiveness of the particular negative process of the tissue will tell you how often you have to treat.
For example, if we are treating pain and the PEMF reduces the pain significantly but it returns in four hours in the first few days of initiating treatment, then it may be best to repeat the treatment every four hours. Over the ensuing few days, it may take six to eight hours for the pain to come back. With continuing treatment, the time that pain may return usually gets longer. In these cases, the interval between treatments would then increase gradually as the healing process of the body progresses and takes more permanent hold.
We see people who have pain relief for weeks after a single treatment and then, as the problem seems to be returning, they do another treatment, which then may also last for a few weeks. Other people do not achieve pain relief until two or three weeks after they’ve begun the treatments. Consistent daily home treatment then becomes much more important to be able to keep up with the frequency of treatments the body needs to continue to maintain relief and effect more permanent healing.
In time, the hope is that the pain-relieving treatments are not needed at all and then the PEMF system can simply be used for health maintenance or until a new problem arises (which one inevitably will). Thankfully, your PEMF system will have you ready to deal with it.
In a study,healthy men were given 12,960 high intensity rTMS magnetic pulses a day for up to three days in one week. This equals 38,880 magnetic pulses over one week, one of the largest exposures of rTMS reported to date. Despite this intense treatment regimen, no significant side effects were seen.
