How Cellular Exercise [PEMF] Can Help Your Body Heal

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Tue, Sep 01, 2015

Cellular exercise in the form of PEMF can help your body heal itself. PEMF is short for pulsed electromagnetic fields.

For a few years now, I have been researching PEMF and how to incorporate it into my natural healing practice. With the myriad of different systems available, I wanted to ensure I chose a PEMF system that was robust, effective and made in the United States. After reviewing a few systems, I decided to use one that several of my colleagues found very effective and that stood the test of time in regards to durability and one that effectively improved my patients' healing ability. In my office, patients who have chronic knee pain, chronic shoulder pain/"frozen shoulder, neuropathy, fibromyalgia, Parkinson's disease, mild cognitive impairment (MCI), ADHD, and a host of other chronic and acute health challenges are benefitting from cellular exercise using our Pulse Centers XL Pro system.

What is an electromagnetic field? What are PEMFs?

"If you have ever held two magnets in your hands, tried to force them together, and felt a resistance between them, then you have experienced a magnetic field. The Earth has its own magnetic field, produced by fluxes in the molten metal in the core of the planet. The presence of this field is what causes a compass to rotate so that the ‘north pole’ of the compass points roughly north. A changing magnetic field (such as a magnetic field moving through a coil) generates an electric field (which would drive a current in the coil). This forms the basis for many electrical generators and motors. Similar to the way that a changing magnetic field can generate an electric field, a changing electric field generates a magnetic field. This is a natural activity of the universe. An electromagnetic field is a physical field produced by moving electrical charges. It affects the behavior of any other charged objects in the vicinity of the field.

PEMF stands for Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Fields, which are widely used these days to improve circulation and cell metabolism. The body can become accustomed to nonmoving (or static) magnetic fields, which are generally unable to deeply penetrate the body. A pulsed electromagnetic field, however, is quite dynamic, is able to penetrate all the way through the body, and creates a cascade of effects within the body.

It is important to distinguish between the electromagnetic fields we use for therapeutic purposes, and other man-made electromagnetic fields from power lines, microwave ovens, cell phones, etc., which can cause damage to our bodies. The PEMF devices we recommend all produce safe, natural electromagnetic fields which are of lower frequency, and are complementary to the chemistry and functions of the body." [1]

What effectively sold me on PEMF (and the system we use) was the benefits I personally experienced using the cellular exercise device. Let me explain how PEMF may help you:

"You have over 75 Trillion cells in your body. Cells are the basic building blocks of all living things.They provide structure for the body,take in nutrients from food, convert those nutrients into energy, and carry out specialized functions.

Cellular exercise increases cellular membrane permeability. This allows better circulation of oxygen and nutrients into your cells. Additionally, PEMF helps eliminate carbon dioxide and waste products out of the cells.

Completing high school and either deciding to pursue a career in the skilled trades, or continuing education in a chosen field through college courses are a couple of paths towards a fulfilling and rewarding career. Most of us have taken one of these paths and have been able to make a living and for some, land their dream job. I feel blessed to be among those who realized the latter.

Breakthrough ATM2 Treatment Brings Pain Relief In Minutes

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Thu, Mar 22, 2012

What would you say if I told you about a new medical breakthrough treatment could bring you pain relief in as little as 5 minutes-even if you have had the pain for several years? You would call it a miracle, wouldn't you? Well this miracle is called the ATM2, which stands for Active Therapeutic Movements (2nd edition) and is available at Johnson Chiropractic Neurology & Nutrition, now.

Patient Centered Multi-Disciplinary Spine Care Pathway Results in Minimized Lower Back Pain and Treatment Costs

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Mon, Oct 31, 2011

The use of a patient-centered multi-disciplinary Spine Care Pathway (SCP) helped to minimize lower back pain (LBP) and the associated treatment costs, according to a recent study, “A Hospital-Based Standardized Spine Care Pathway: Report of a Multidisciplinary, Evidence-Based Process,” published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, February 2011, Vol. 34, No. 2.

Using the National Center for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Back Pain Recognition Program (BPRP) as its framework, the SCP provided patients with the five care options cited as the most effective in the back pain literature: spinal manipulation, extension and flexion directional preference exercises, core stabilization exercises, and mechanical traction.

“Lower back pain is a common condition affecting an estimated 90 percent of the population at some time,” said Ian C. Paskowski, D.C., lead author and medical director, Medical Back Pain Program at Jordan Hospital, Plymouth, Mass., the site from which this study’s date was derived. “Current methods of relieving LBP are often uncoordinated, inefficient and expensive. However, our team of researchers was the first to implement an evidence-based, standardized SCP, which aligned individual patients with the appropriate conservative care option. As predicted, the results were improved patient health and satisfaction rates, with decreased costs.”

The LBP program at Jordan Hospital, managed chiefly by Doctors of Chiropractic, treated 518 patients in the first six months of the program, using a two-tiered clinical management approach. Of the total patient population, 402 were exclusively cared for by D.C.s who achieved successful treatment outcomes in an average of just 5.2 visits at the extremely low cost of only $302 per case, while maintaining a patient satisfaction rate above 95 percent. Self-reported pain and disability scores were reduced by about 70% over the course of just a few weeks.

Primary Care Physicians (PCPs) have traditionally been the providers to initially see LBP patients. “We have demonstrated that when this spine care pathway is offered to PCPs, they will utilize these evidence-based guidelines and chiropractic services,” said Paskowski. “I largely credit our Doctors of Chiropractic for achieving these excellent clinical outcomes and attaining such high patient satisfaction rates. Their dedication to individual patient needs and a patient-centered approach aligns flawlessly with the medical home model and yields remarkable results. We anticipate that this SCP will become the globalized framework for uniformity and consistency in healthcare for LBP management, and that chiropractors will become the non-surgical spine care experts in the health care system.”
