Inflammation Pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMFs) have been used to treat almost every conceivable human illness or malady, including many inflammatory diseases such as arthritis or psoriasis. PEMF therapy has been associated with pain reduction and accelerated healing. PEMFs exert these effects by regulating processes involving inflammation and autoimmune diseases, among other biologic actions. EMF therapy specifically targets cells that are meta-stable as a consequence of disease or other ongoing therapies. Thus, PEMF’s can be an important cellular therapy in many diseases, including cancer, psoriasis, wound healing, and bacterial infections because of their effects on reducing chronic inflammation.
