The knee is an intricate joint constructed of several different muscles and ligaments. Pain and strain in this area affect nearly all of the body’s movements! Pulsing the knees provides the cells in this crucial region with the energy they need to perform at their best.
Benefits of PEMF
Imagine your cells as batteries — daily stressors slowly drain them of the energy they need to function optimally. By the end of the day, your body may feel completely depleted, especially as age, exercise, and other factors take their toll on us.
PEMF (Pulsed electromagnetic field technology) is a soothing and restorative modality[4,5] that stimulates and exercises the cells to address cellular dysfunction and support overall wellness. Some of the benefits PEMF users experience are enhanced natural recovery, assistance with muscle fatigue and discomfort after exercise, general relaxation,[4,5] and a boost of natural energy.[6,7]
Pulsing the whole body at a high pulse rate helps the body relax and release tension. In addition, pulsing the knees with a focus accessory is a great way to provide the cells in this region with more energy to better-perform their crucial functions.
Positions for Pulsing the Knees
First, use the Paddles to target any specific area of the knee you’d like to focus on. Keep in mind that the crosshairs of the Paddles indicate the energy focal point, where the accessory emits the strongest electromagnetic energy. Adjust the positioning until you find a “hotspot,” or an area where you feel the pulse most intensely.
Next, use the Paddles to target regions that provide support to the knee, such as the thighs and lower legs. We often refer to this strategy as “Pulsing the Pathway.” When cells in one area are low on energy, it creates a ripple effect that impacts areas all along the pathway. So, when pulsing the knees, it’s important to consider what areas of the body the knee draws strength and support from. Then, incorporate those regions into the session!
Finally, you can use two Square Pads to “sandwich” the knees. We recommend using nylatex wraps to create compression and optimize the coverage of the area. With only one inch of separation from the accessory to the body, the strength of the magnetic field is diminished by HALF. So,high-contact positions like this one are essential.
In conclusion, pulsing the knees provides the cells in this region with the energy they need to perform at their best. If you are experiencing significant pain or discomfort in your knees, consult your licensed healthcare provider.
