Paraplegia/Quadraplegia Studied With PEMF Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Fields Therapy

Paraplegia/Quadraplegia Studied With PEMF Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Fields Therapy

Abstracts of scientific studies on the use of PEMF with Paraplegia/Quadraplegia:

Experimental regeneration in peripheral nerves and the spinal cord in laboratory animals exposed to a pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF)
(Date: 1976)

Peripheral nerve section and suture was performed in 132 rats. Postoperatively half the animals were exposed to a pulsed electromagnetic field each day and half were kept as controls. Nerve conduction studies, histology and nerve fibre counts all indicated an increased rate of regeneration in the treated animals. A similar controlled study of spinal cord regeneration following hemicordotomy in cats has been started, and preliminary results indicate that when the animals are sacrificed three months after the hemicordotomy, the pulsed electromagnetic therapy has induced nerve fibre regeneration across the region of the scar.
