Every sport includes some risk of getting injured. The most common cause of injuries \ stem from overuse and poor training methods. The reality is, athletes still train and compete with injuries, big or small. Being sidelined can be frustrating for any athlete; and is why trainers and coaches put so much emphasis on injury prevention. Along with the fundamentals of rest, stretching, and diet, the addition of PEMF to an athletic regimen can take your performance to the next level. Continue reading to see how PEMF can benefit athletes in both recovery and injury prevention.
How Can PEMF Help Athletes Recover from Injuries?
While research on athletic performance and PEMF is ongoing, numerous studies have already demonstrate the positive benefits. As Dr. Magda Havas, Associate Professor of Environmental & Resource Studies at Trent University states, “PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic field) devices do not treat a specific condition. Instead they optimize the body’s natural self-healing and self-regulating function.” By extension, PEMF can be used by athletes to maximize performance, speed up recovery time, and reduce the risk of injury.

In a study using small animal subjects, the use of PEMF was tested to examine how it could be used to speed up the rate at which rotator cuff injuries heal. There was indeed a positive effect on the test subjects’ healing compared to their untreated counterparts with no signs of negative side-effects.These results suggest that PEMF be a supportive adjunct to recovery. Recovery is essential in order for athletes to compete at their peak levels when necessary.
Likewise, there was another study that looked into the subject of chronic musculoskeletal pain to see whether PEMF could be used to provide pain relief. Once again, there was reason to believe that PEMF could indeed prove effective in this regard, which is critical because chronic musculoskeletal from sports injuries can have a horrendous impact on a person’s quality of life. By helping interested individuals deal with such problems, PEMF might be able to help them to not just reduce a major source of distress, but also enable them to start doing all of the things that they used to do prior to being injured.
While people can recover from such incidents on their own, it might be a good idea for them to look into using a PEMF device to take their rehab and training to the next level. Consistent pulsing will make a considerable difference in day-to-day activities whether one is a professional athlete or just a weekend warrior.
