PEMF Regulatory Updates & Advocacy

Although pulsed electromagnetic field therapy has been around for decades, there has yet to be any serious regulation of its use. As PEMF therapy increases in popularity, so do the regulatory efforts to ensure its safety and efficacy. Some regulations may help increase the credibility of our beloved modality and can therefore increase its consumer value. 

As PEMF professionals, it is our obligation to know and abide by all safety measures and precautions. Professionals must always follow their local and state laws, and we encourage the participation of our members in their local legislative bodies, particularly when it comes to PEMF therapy. 

By participating in the formation of policy and abiding by the laws and best practices set forth, we can help educate others and help to further the use of PEMF therapy for humans and animals in need. Here is a list of regulatory boards, commissions, and disciplines the AOPP monitors to ensure our members stay up to date!
