Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field Therapy for Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia- what is it?
Fibromyalgia is a chronic disease including various symptoms.
Among them are widespread body pain, tender spots around joints, fatigue, sleep disturbances, trouble concentrating and anxiety.
Fibromyalgia is often difficult to diagnose, because there is no way to measure or test for it. Its symptoms can come and go, and they may be associated with many other diseases.
Doctors use the following criteria when diagnosing for fibromyalgia:
Widespread pain for at least three months
Other symptoms such as fatigue and insomnia
No underlying condition that might be the cause of your symptoms
The exact cause for fibromyalgia is still unknown, but researchers believe it may be associated with problems in the central nervous system. A heightened sensitivity to pain is present due to a disturbance in the way pain signals are processed. While different theories exist as to what triggers fibromyalgia, most researches believe that it is caused by a combination of factors like genetic, hormonal, and traumatic.
PEMF therapy helps relieve pain and improve sleep quality, by inducing a feeling of relaxation, regeneration, and well being.
We received the following letter from Dr. Robert Sklovsky, who shares his positive experience of treating a Fibromyalgia patient with the Parmeds PEMF system:
My name is Deni Stewart and I have fibromyalgia. This syndrome, as FM has been labeled, has completely changed my life and definitely not for the better. The constant pain has been so much of a disabling factor that I can no longer function normally. One of the many facets of FM is something I commonly call "body hum". If you are a fellow FM sufferer you already understand what I mean. After three treatments this "body hum" has been totally eliminated. I am extremely grateful to Sheila and the PEMF treatments for enhancing the quality of my life. Now after several more treatments I have found that I sleep more deeply and I have seen moderate changes to my body's overall stability. The effects of the changes resulting from PEMF treatments have been observed by several health care professionals but especially my chiropractor. He commented that I am now more capable of holding an adjustment. He also observed that I seem to be much happier in general. And this is the case...I have had a wonderful summer...one I don't think I would have had without PEMF. Thank you!
