We are excited to introduce PEMF (Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields Therapy) to the CrossFit Central community! PEMF is used to positively impact energy within damaged or injured cells. It does this by directing repeating electromagnetic pulses toward the affected cells, stimulating a healthier response.
Interested? Come to CrossFit Central Downtown and chat with our front desk staff on how you can implement PEMF into your training.
What is PEMF?
PEMF stands for Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field therapy; using this particular process involves directing powerful, pulsed energy waves toward damaged or injured areas of the patient’s body. These waves painlessly and 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 potential (its energy), regulating its volume at the same time.
How PEMF 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 waves gives them the energy they need to ward off whatever is threatening them, whether it’s a trauma or disease-based threat. 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.
