PEMF Studies

PEMF Therapy for Fibromyalgia

  • Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition characterized by widespread pain, fatigue, sleep disturbances, and often emotional and mental distress. People with Fibromyalgia may experience pain and tenderness throughout their body, the cause of which is not well understood but is thought to involve genetic and environmental factors, as well as disruptions in how the brain processes pain signals. As a condition that affects millions globally, finding effective management strategies is a key concern for those diagnosed.

  • In this context, PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) Therapy for Fibromyalgia presents an intriguing, non-invasive treatment option. By delivering electromagnetic pulses to the body, PEMF therapy aims to reduce pain and improve quality of life for individuals with Fibromyalgia through enhancing the body's natural healing processes and modulating pain perception.


  • The exact cause of Fibromyalgia remains elusive, with researchers suggesting a combination of genetic predisposition and triggers such as stress, trauma, or certain infections. Fibromyalgia is often associated with areas in the brain that respond differently to pain signals, leading to an increased sensitivity to pain. This heightened pain response can significantly impact daily functioning and well-being, making management of the condition challenging.

How PEMF Therapy Can Help

  • PEMF Therapy offers a novel approach to managing Fibromyalgia symptoms by targeting the body's pain response mechanisms. The therapy’s electromagnetic fields can stimulate cellular activity, potentially leading to improved circulation, reduced inflammation, and enhanced tissue repair—all of which could contribute to pain relief. Furthermore, PEMF therapy may help to recalibrate the body's pain perception pathways, offering a non-pharmacological option for pain management.

  • While research into PEMF therapy for Fibromyalgia is ongoing, early studies and patient testimonials indicate potential benefits, including decreased pain intensity, improved sleep quality, and enhanced overall well-being. For those seeking alternative treatments or adjunctive therapies for Fibromyalgia, PEMF therapy could represent a promising option.

  • Sutbeyaz, S. T., Sezer, N., Koseoglu, F., & Kibar, S. (2009) In this randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled clinical trial, the authors investigated the effects of PEMF on pain, functional status, and quality of life in patients with fibromyalgia. They found that patients who received PEMF therapy experienced significant improvements in pain relief, physical function, and overall quality of life compared to the sham group.

  • Lappin, M. S., Lawrie, F. W., Richards, T. L., & Kramer, E. D. (2003) This pilot study examined the effects of PEMF therapy on pain and sleep in patients with fibromyalgia. The authors reported that patients who received PEMF therapy experienced a reduction in pain intensity and an improvement in sleep quality.

  • Pomytkin, I. A., Zhivolupov, S. A., & Razvodovsky, Y. E. (2009) In this study, the authors investigated the effects of PEMF therapy on the severity of fibromyalgia symptoms and the functional state of the central nervous system in a group of patients with fibromyalgia. They found that PEMF treatment led to improvements in the patients' overall clinical condition and functional state.
