The effect of exposure to high flux density static and pulsed magnetic fields on lymphocyte function

Abstract We investigated whether a combination of static electromagnetic field (EMF) at a flux density of 4.75 T together with pulsed EMF at a flux density of 0.7 mT generated by an NMR apparatus (NMRF), could promote movements of Ca(2+), cell proliferation, and the eventual production of proinflammatory cytokines in human lymphocytes as well as …

Experiments showing that electromagnetic fields can be used to treat inflammatory diseases

Abstract While it is well known that electromagnetic fields (EMFs) can induce repair of non-healing bone fractures, EMF therapy remains confined to orthopedic clinics mainly because the biological and physical mechanisms underlying the therapy are unknown. However, it is generally believed that non-invasive, EMF therapy might have a broad, albeit currently unrecognized clinical potential. In …

Effect of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation on forced swimming test

Abstract Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) and electroconvulsive shock (ECS) have been shown to affect mood in health and disease. Evidence to date has demonstrated an antidepressant potential for rTMS and electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). The present experiment, aimed at comparing the effects of ECS and rTMS in rats, employed one test used for screening of …

Slow transcranial magnetic stimulation, long-term depotentiation, and brain hyperexcitability disorders

Abstract OBJECTIVE: Many clinical syndromes in neuropsychiatry suggest focal brain activation. Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) has been proposed as a method for selectively altering neural activity. METHOD: Studies assessing effects of “slow” rTMS, administered up to once per second, in normal people and in those with pathological conditions are reviewed. The findings are compared …

Right versus left prefrontal transcranial magnetic stimulation for obsessive-compulsive disorder: a preliminary investigation

Abstract BACKGROUND: There is preliminary evidence that repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) may be useful for the treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), but no definitive study has been published, and the effect of laterality of stimulation is uncertain. METHOD: Subjects (N = 12) with resistant OCD were allocated randomly to either right or left prefrontal …

PEMF therapy for people with osteoarthritis

This study was designed to determine whether pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMFT) could alleviate common symptoms of arthritis such as pain, swelling and immobility and whether it could contribute to overall wellbeing. Five volunteers, all of whom were diagnosed with osteoarthritis, participated in the study. Subjects treated themselves with the Centurion EZY system for 20 …

PEMF therapy of chronic pain

A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial using a low-frequency magnetic field in the treatment of musculoskeletal chronic pain Exposure to a specific pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) has been shown to produce analgesic (antinociceptive) effects in many organisms. In a randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled clinical trial, patients with either chronic generalized pain from fibromyalgia (FM) or chronic …

PEMF for Veterinarians

Initially, PEMF was used to treat horses suffering from leg and back injuries. Veterinarians then began to treat greyhounds suffering from similar issues as well as sprains and ligament issues, which respond well to PEMF therapy. greyhounds, since these incur frequent sprains, ligament injuries and fractures, all of which respond well to PEMF. Vets have …
