BEMER Therapy, Anyone?

BEMER Therapy, Anyone?

Hello, all. Has anyone had experience with BEMER therapy? Thanks!

I had shock wave therapy given by a Chiropractor. It is not covered in Ontario by OHIP or private insurance. It cost me $75 a treatment. My private insurance paid $50. of that. Needed about 10 treatment and then once a month. It worked great for a short period. It is a hand held wand and it pulsates on the back.

BEMER therapy is a relatively new type of pulsed electromagnetic field therapy that has shown potential effectiveness for health conditions such as low back pain, arthritis, and fibromyalgia.

copy and pasted on BEMER therapy from the "Bemer" Company:

What Is BEMER Therapy?
BEMER therapy administers a low-frequency pulsed magnetic field to the muscles. This can be done using handheld devices or a mat that a person lies on for full-body treatment. The pulses stimulate blood circulation, particularly microcirculation of blood in the body's smallest blood vessels. BEMER therapy can help improve organ blood flow and nutrient supply as well as aid in the removal of waste products from metabolism (metabolites).

Research on BEMER therapy is still new. The studies that have been done so far are preliminary and have had small sample sizes and other limitations. The results from these studies should not be seen as conclusive, but rather as guides for further research.

BEMER Disclaimer-

BEMER's makers offer a disclaimer that is important to consider before using the products:

The makers of BEMER do not currently market their products as medical devices; however, some studies have indicated that BEMER therapy could have potential as a complementary treatment for conditions such as chronic pain, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis (MS), and cancer.

The makers of BEMER claim that the products can enhance:

Nutrient and oxygen delivery

I googled “Bemer Therapy”. Beamer is simply the name of the originator of the the therapy. It is simply pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF). It can be used for osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia among other things.

It stimulates microcirculation thus oxodizes and detoxifies. It helps with the inflamation after therapy. I don’t use any pain medications anymore, so it helps. The relief doesn’t last but a few hours, though.
