Pulsed Electromagnetic Therapy
Introducing Pulsed Magnetic Therapy
Why do professional athletes in almost every sport need pulsed magnetic therapy? The simplest answer is because it works. In fact, pulsed magnetic therapy for sports is four-fold: it fights pain, reduces swelling and inflammation, it speeds recovery from injury and it enhances performance. Common sense tells us that what can help the professional athlete can also help the rest of us.
Injuries are possible in any sport. Increased fitness and the fun of athletic participation make is satisfying and worthwhile. Pulsed magnetic therapy helps athletes return to peak performance by applying magnetic pulses to restore biomechanical and neuromuscular function. Not only do athletes in "high impact" contact sports such as rodeo, football, hockey and soccer benefit from this therapy but baseball, basketball, golfers, tennis players, joggers, skiers and many others have discovered that pulsed magnetic gives them the "competitive edge."
The injuries received in a contact sport such as football or rodeo can often sideline an athlete for a game, season or career. The body is subjected to a forceful impact. When an arm or leg is fractured, the bone is set and in time it heals. When an athlete is sore or hurt, they cannot compete, practice or exercise. An athlete in pain can easily lose their edge.
Contact sports are not the only ones to produce injuries. Injuries and pain are common in sports such as golf and tennis which require constant motion. Runners subject their joints to punishing wear and tear with constant jarring.
When joints and muscles are sore, they can exert pressure on adjacent nerves, impair neutral function and affect the function of virtually every other tissue, organ, and system in the body. These injuries limit motion, strength and endurance.
Complete recovery from an injury can be delayed and athletic performance is limited. Pulsed magnetic therapy helps reduce pain, increase range of motion and promotes the healing of sports injuries.
Recreational Athlete Alert
While trained athletes often suffer muscle and joint injuries, the dangers to the "recreational athlete” are perhaps even greater. Because their muscles and joints may lack the conditioning and flexibility of the trained athlete, strains, tears, and inflammation often occur and heal more slowly.
Pulsed magnetic therapy helps in reducing inflammation and increases joint function; providing the occasional athlete with pain relief and allowing them to get back in the game.
Improving Athletic Performance
For many of us, even before we are "sidelined" by a sports injury, we may not be functioning to our fullest potential. Any pain or soreness causes your body to compensate by changing or adapting the way other parts function with it. This compensation causes your body to expend more energy to achieve the same result it did before the malfunction.
Even when other symptoms are not evident, proper function may be lacking. With pulsed magnetic therapy, the athlete could experience improvements in pain relief, range of motion, muscle function, coordination, balance, and as a result, overall performance.
Prevent Future Problems
With proper care and preparation, athletes can prevent many of the sprains, strains, and pains that take the fun out of athletic participation.
Pulsed magnetic therapy can be used in conjunction with other therapies including hot or cold packs to reduce inflammation, massage to speed soft tissue healing, and exercise to increase muscle conditioning and joint flexibility.
What you can do
Use pulsed magnetic therapy before you begin serious conditioning for an upcoming event or after you suffer a sports-related injury. Whether it is some previously undetected injury, or years of wear and tear, pulsed magnetic therapy will help many problems that could limit your athletic performance. Regardless of your age, conditioning, or health, it can improve your athletic potential.
