An interesting study on PEMF therapy for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome was published recently in the Journal of Advanced Research. The double-blind trial compared the efficacy of pulsed ultrasound with pulsed electromagnetic therapy for the treatment of postnatal carpal tunnel syndrome and found that PEMF improved grip strength, reduced pain and could be an effective therapy for patients with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. The study included 40 patients diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome.
The study ran for four weeks during which time patients were given exercises to help to improve the condition and groups of patients received either pulsed ultrasound therapy or PEMF therapy three times a week for four weeks. The patients received PEMF therapy at 50Hz for 30 minutes per session. 50Hz on the Rife Model MA and UA devices is frequency number 297 and there is a Carpal Tunnel Syndrome program on both the Rife Model MA and UA.
PEMF therapy for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Research - Outcome of the Study
The study measured pain levels, sensory and motor distal latencies, hand grip strength and conduction velocities of the median nerve. After therapy, the groups who received therapy showed significant improvement in all of the areas measured. There was also a difference between the two groups, with the group who received PEMF therapy showing more improvement than the group who received pulsed ultrasound therapy.
Since the symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome include pain, inflammation and discomfort, it should not really be surprising to show improvements in these areas since both TENS and PEMF have been shown to help reduce pain, increase circulation and decrease inflammation.
It is also important to note that no adverse side effects were reported for either PEMF or ultrasound therapy. Unlike pain medication and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, the use of PEMF therapy for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome could offer a drugless alternative to the current pharmaceutical treatments available.
