What is it?
PEMF utilizes electro magnetic currents to regenerate cells. The cells in our body degenerate over time due to trauma, illness and aging. Trauma can be physical (acute injury or repetitive motion), mental (stress), or nutritional (poor diet, drugs, pollution). PEMF repairs these cells to allow them to function at an optimal level.
PEMF therapy has been utilized for decades with over 2000 medical studies proving its effectiveness and safety.
The FDA approved PEMF for the following:
- 1979 Healing of non union bone fractures
- 1998 Urinary incontinence and muscle stimulation
- 2004 Healing for cervical spine fusion patinets
- 2006 Depression and anxiety
While the FDA has limited approvals, PEMF has shown to be successful in the treatment of many disorders not listed in their approvals.
I am a competitive swimmer and I swim 3 hours a day on average. About five years ago I started having pain in my shoulder. The pain in my shoulder is piercing and restricts my flexibility and strength. I went to my primary care physician, an orthopedist, and a number of physical therapists.
I had x-rays and ultra sounds, but they proved inconclusive. The treatment that I received from Dr. Criscuolo 3 _ years ago allowed me to continue to train and compete. My pain is sometimes recurring and I still visit Dr. Criscuolo several times during the year to enable my training to continue.
Even though my family moved away from the New Jersey area to Maine, I still return to Dr. Criscuolo’s office. The Active Release Technique has allowed me to continue to swim without pain.
