PEMF IN THE NEWS
Use of Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field therapy (pEMF or PEMF) for the treatment of diabetic foot ulcer was the subject of an article by Elrashid, Nesrein et al. entitled “Additional effect of pulsed electromagnetic fields to laser therapy on management of diabetic foot ulcer: a single blind randomized controlled trial”, Bioscience Research Print ISSN: 1811-9506 Online ISSN: 2218-3973 Journal by Innovative Scientific Information & Services Network 2018 15(4):3322-3328.
pEMF was more recently studied in connection with lower back pain in an article by Alzayed, Khalid et al. entitled ”Efficacy of Pulsed Low-Frequency Magnetic Field Therapy on Patients with Chronic Low Back Pain: A Randomized Double-Blind Placebo-Controlled Trial”, Asian Spine Journal 2020;14(1):33-42;https://doi.org/10.31616/asj.2019.0043. Their conclusion was that “PEMF therapy improved pain and disability in patients with CLBP [chronic lower back pain]. However, it does not seem to be superior to other treatment options.”
