What is Pulse Magnetic Therapy for Dogs
Magnetic medical aid is the use of magnetic fields for the treatment of varied medical conditions. utilised in human medicine for a long time, it's recently also become additional popular in treating animals
Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PMFT) is a form of electrotherapy that uses pulsed electromagnetic fields at differing frequencies, this is because the cells in our body all have totally different electrical charges that change when cells are damaged. PMFT induces secondary electrical fields within the cells within the body so as to return the damaged cells to their ‘healthy’ electrical charge. This ends up in a cascade of normal cellular reactions inside the cells leading to an improved rate of healing of bone, nerves, and soft tissues (tendons, ligaments, muscles, skin), additionally as providing pain relief.
PEMF uses pulsing electromagnetic fields to jump-start and accelerates normal biological cellular reactions. a small battery current is pulsed through a coil to create the electromagnetic field and initiate the biological cellular reactions. Cells contain electrically charged particles referred to as ions that govern all cellular processes. when the body is stressed (by sickness, competition, environmental factors or age) the cellular membrane that conducts the essential ions into and out of the cell becomes compromised and is unable to efficiently do its job of managing the transport of those ions. The PEMF generates a magnetic field that makes motion straightaway and positively directly impacts these ions and membrane potential to stimulate them into action. The result is a rise in cellular communication and circulation, a decrease in inflammation and pain and resulting acceleration of healing. There aren't any side effects seen with the use of PEMF.
Magnetic therapies heal the dog's body by restoring effective circulation and eliminating inflammation. increased blood flow to a diseased part of the dog's body encourages a rise in nutrients to that location, speeding up the healing process. while magnetic therapies cannot cure all medical problems, they're an affordable, non-invasive, and safe choice to use in healing.
What Common Conditions are treated with Pulsed Magnetic Therapy?
Acute and Chronic Pain
Soft Tissue Injury / Bruising
Fractures, Non-union Fractures
Oedema / Swelling
At Fit4dogsuk we use PEMF therapy for a large number of medical conditions of which the most common are:
Canine Orthopedic Injuries - Treatment by using an electromagnet field works well with all types of orthopaedic injuries. These include strains, sprains, torn cruciate, blown discs, fractures, broken bones, and muscle strains.
Dog Degenerative Disorders - This type of disorder includes Osteoarthritis, hip dysplasia and elbow dysplasia as well as degenerative myelopathy. Osteoarthritis and DGD are a growing problem in all breeds. There is existing evidence that Pulse Electromagnetic Field Therapy can benefit those patients and the underlying health of the cartilage. Studies suggest that use of PEMF can slow the progression of arthritis in pets in the same pathway through which this PEMF technology decreases inflammation and enhances healing.
Neurological issues - PMEF is often recommended by vets for certain neurological issues such as IVDD, neuropathy, Wobblers ideas to name a few.
Wound care and healing: The PEMF technology has been demonstrated to improve wound healing 58% more quickly than wounds that have not received Pulse Electromagnetic Field Therapy. PEMF technology may provide your dog with a safe non-invasive therapy that can enhance wound repair without the necessity of direct skin contact.
Post-surgical healing, anti-inflammation and pain relief in dogs, PEMF has been shown to have positive effects on both acute and chronic inflammation in pets. These results are comparable or superior to NSAIDs, without the potential for side effects. PEMF helps your dog heal faster by accelerating the natural anti-inflammatory cascade non-invasively and without drugs.
Benefits of Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy for Pets
Easy to use
No side effects No known side effects
Effective treatment of Chronic wounds
After surgery TPEMF can enhance healing by reducing inflammation, swelling (oedema) and pain and doing so, improving and shortening rehabilitation time
How can my pet benefit from magnetic therapy?
PEMFs are great for animals with injuries and conditions such as arthritis, when using PEMFs on your pet you will also notice a difference in their mobility, mood, and energy.
Magnetic field therapy is a non-invasive form of treatment that may act as a form of pain relief in chronic degenerative conditions, and which can speed the patient's recovery from traumatic injuries.
Increased rate of tissue healing (bone, nerves,soft tissues)
Increasing Venous Return/Blood Circulation
Improving Fracture Repair
Increase Nerve Stimulation
Decrease swelling and inflammation
How safe is magnetic therapy?
As a whole, magnetic therapy is free from side effects.
Magnetic therapy should not be performed on fresh injuries, in pregnant patients, or on patients using pacemakers. Caution should be used in the treatment of cancer or in the presence of infection.
