Assisi Loop and Pulse Electromagnetic Field Therapy
The Assisi Loop uses Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) technology.
So what does that mean?
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) decreases inflammation and pain, increases the rate of tissue repair and regeneration, and the Assisi Loop specifically has been FDA cleared. This painless modality can be used adjunctively with rehabilitation sessions, general appointments, or daily at home.
The Assisi Loop offers direct non-invasive healing option as a Non-Pharmaceutical Anti-Inflammatory Device (NPAID). The loop (which comes in two sizes) is placed over the affected area for 15 minutes 1 to 4 times a day. We can use the loop during appointments or it can be rented / purchased for at home use. Each loop provides 150 treatments.
PEMF uses pulsing electromagnetic fields to jump start and accelerate normal biological cellular reactions. A small battery current is pulsed through a coil to create the electromagnetic field and initiate the biological cellular reactions. Cells contain electrically charged particles called ions that govern all cellular processes. When the body is stressed (by illness, injury, environmental factors, or age) the cellular membrane that conducts the essential ions into and out of the cell becomes compromised and is unable to efficiently do its job of managing the transport of these ions. The PEMF generates a magnetic field that creates motion immediately and positively directly impacts these ions and membrane potential to stimulate them into action. The result is an increase in cellular communication and circulation, a decrease in inflammation and pain and a resulting acceleration of healing. There are no side effects seen with the use of PEMF.
