PEMF therapy is growing in popularity with physicians and wellness centers for chemical free, non-invasive therapy. Did you know that PEMF therapy can help your pet feel better too? If you’ve heard of this therapy or even tried it for yourself with great results, you may also have heard that some pet owners are turning to PEMF therapy to improve the health of their pets. You may be wondering – does PEMF really work for pets, too? What kind of benefits does it have? Is it right for my pet?
Today, we’ll take an in-depth look at PEMF therapy for pets, how it works, its benefits and more.
UNDERSTANDING THE BASICS: WHAT IS PEMF THERAPY?
First of all, PEMF stands for Pulsed Electromagnetic Field. This is a specialized type of therapy which uses pulsing magnetic fields, generated by running an electric current through coils of pure copper wire. The magnetic field cocoons the body and provides direct stimulation to the cells. Basically, this extra energy helps cells that are damaged, malfunctioning, or otherwise compromised work more effectively.
This means that basic cellular functions that are required for health – such as absorbing nutrients, eliminating cellular waste, self-repair, and regeneration, and other important functions can be boosted and enhanced. Ultimately, this leads to better overall health and well-being.
IS PEMF SAFE FOR PETS?
Yes, PEMF therapy is safe for your pet. Just like you, your pet’s body is composed of trillions of cells. Each of the cells is a building block necessary for the body of your pet to function as it should.
By using PEMF therapy, you can energize your pet’s cells and induce the motion of ions and electrolytes in the tissues of the body. Then, your pet’s damaged cells heal and re-balance themselves.
PEMF therapy is being used as an alternative by pharmaceuticals to help heal your pet and enhance its quality of life. Most commonly, PEMF therapy is used to help combat soreness, stiffness, arthritis and other inflammatory conditions. After just a few weeks of treatment, many pet owners report seeing their pets rise more easily, and say that their pets can walk or even run without exhibiting symptoms of pain.
WHY SHOULD YOU USE PEMF THERAPY?
PEMF therapy affects every cell in your pet’s body, so it can have a wide variety of beneficial, healthful effects.
A FEW OF THESE BENEFITS INCLUDE:
Increased circulation and better blood flow, which promote healing
Enhanced muscle function and strength
Decreased inflammation due to inflammatory diseases like arthritis and Lyme’s Disease
Better blood oxygenation, which enhances lung and heart function
Reduce muscle tension and pain for easier movement
Aids in the regeneration of nerves and neural pathways
Enhances flexibility and strength of soft tissues
Accelerates the recovery of illness or injury
A recent study was done to assess PEMF therapy as a means of reducing pain and accelerating healing of dogs post-surgery. Sadly, the dogs all suffered from intervertebral disc disease, one of the leading causes of paralysis in canines. Most noteworthy, dogs receiving PEMF therapy postop demonstrated improved wound healing and reduced amount of owner-administered pain medications.
Above all, by boosting the energy in your pet’s cells and stimulating the movement of electrolytes and ions throughout its body, PEMF therapy can dramatically enhance the overall quality of life. Many people who use PEMF therapy for their pets report benefits like better sleep, a larger appetite, more regular urination, and bowel movements, improved moods, decreased aggression and more!
