It’s estimated that over 1.3 million Americans suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, a systemic autoimmune disease that attacks large and small joints simultaneously.
It occurs due to abnormal behavior in white blood cells. Instead of attacking malignant cells, they attack healthy ones, triggering an inflammatory cascade that erodes both bone and cartilage. Unless treated, the patient’s range of motion gradually diminishes. Their joints may even become deformed and dysfunctional, making it painful to engage in everyday activities such as walking or cooking.
However, treating arthritis has its own set of challenges. Most medications for rheumatoid arthritis suppress the production of pro-inflammatory proteins and compounds, which slows the disease and prevents further damage. While effective at battling pain, these drugs also come with a range of potential side effects, including:
- Weight Gain
- High Blood Pressure
- Bone Marrow Suppression
- Weakened Immune System
What’s more, there’s no evidence that these treatments help repair damage to the patients’ joints. As a result, doctors have been focused on developing alternative strategies for joint health. One of the most promising is Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy.
What is PEMF Therapy?
Human cells communicate with electrical signals. This constant exchange of ions generates a small electromagnetic field. Altering this field can induce positive change by helping cells metabolize oxygen and food or triggering the release of protective enzymes.
By delivering intermittent waves of electromagnetic energy directly to damaged tissue, PEMF therapy activates multiple intracellular pathways in the immune and microvascular system. Treated areas see cascading effects that accelerate the body’s natural regenerative process and restore homeostasis.
Advantages of PEMF
The case of Jerry, an AuraWell patient, illustrates the advantages of treating arthritis with PEMF. Jerry was a 72-year-old patient suffering from arthritis in his right knee. He experienced pain and swelling, which limited his mobility and severely affected his daily activities. Averse to surgery or medication, Jerry was treated with AuraWell PEMF therapy ‒ which administered targeted, neuromagnetic pulses via a butterfly coil on the affected body part. Over the course of four sessions, Jerry experienced:
- Swift Pain Relief. After two sessions, Jerry’s pain was cut in half. By the final session, it had vanished completely, allowing him to take part in everyday activities once again.
- Decreased Swelling. Jerry saw a 50 percent reduction in swelling during his initial sessions. By the final session, the swelling had subsided entirely.
- Increased Mobility. When treatment ended, Jerry had regained full motion in his knee. He was able to bend it 90 degrees and extend it -9 degrees without pain or discomfort.
Because AuraWell PEMF therapy is administered in concentrated, 30-minute sessions, Jerry experienced significant improvements after only a single week. Choosing PEMF not only helped him avoid prolonged suffering, but costly medications and invasive procedures as well.
