Stimulate Natural Recovery
An injury can heal, but that doesn’t always mean the pain goes away. When it comes to your bones and joints, pain is often a chronic issue. You may have help managing—and even stopping—that pain, with Pulsed Eletromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy. Not only can it help with the pain, it can stimulate your body to heal the damage!
PEMF Therapy in Lexington can help treat a variety of conditions: inflammation, pain, injured joints, insomnia, circulatory concerns, and more. Your therapy is performed in the comfort of your own home with applicators that can treat a specific area, or your whole body.

Why try PEMF Therapy in Lexington?
PEMF Therapy is completely safe. The pulsed elecromagnetic field is administered without need for wires, electrodes, or any conductive gels. It can cover the entire body, or provide localized treatment.
PEMF Therapy provides an effective, safe treatment for a number of issues. NASA uses PEMF therapy to help with cartilage regeneration in sinovial joints.
Because PEMF Therapy stimulates all cells within the treatment area, it helps the body on multiple levels to reboot cellular function and achieve better health and healing.
What to Expect?
The PEMF Therapy Process
When you come to Triple Crown Chiropractic & Wellness for PEMF Therapy in Lexington, your provider will discuss your medical history, which includes medical reports concerning your current issue. This helps determine if you're a good candidate for PEMF Therapy. You can also ask any questions you may have about the benefits of the treatment and when you can expect the best results.
You may choose to have whole-body PEMF Therapy, or to have treatment applied to a specific area. Fully body treatment requires lying comfortably on a specialized full body applicator, almost like a thin mattress. Localized treatment involves a smaller device, placed in a specific area. Either way, the device delivers a pulsed electromagnetic field to stimulate cells. You may feel small muscle contractions, or even a "pulsing" feeling in the treatment area. PEMF Therapy is completely painless.
Treatments that promote a body's natural self-healing abilities require a longer-term commitment to the healing process.
To prepare PEMF Therapy in Lexington, Triple Crown Chiropractic & Wellness recommends:
- Fully understand your current health issue. Talk to your current healthcare provider about your condition. This way you can make informed choices for PEMF Therapy.
- Make sure your chiropractor knows about any metal implants. Metal implants in general are fine for PEMF Therapy, because the energy used isn’t set to high levels. But the chiropractor must know about them, so that treatment is safe along with being effective.
- Drink plenty of water. PEMF Therapy stimulates electrical currents in your tissues. Hydration is required for these currents to flow well. Do this before and after all treatments.
- Set aside the time for healing. Make sure you have made time allowances for your PEMF Therapy. Stress causes physical issues that can alter the progress of your therapy. Plan on set times to allow yourself to heal.
To get the most out of PEMF therapy in Lexington, we recommend:
- Be sure to drink plenty of water. It’s part of your cellular process for creating, directing, and supporting your cells’ chemoelectric functionality.
- Get exercise. Exercise helps strengthen bones and muscles. The improved cardiovascular function also helps remove toxins through blood flow and via healthy sweating.
- Eat a healthy diet with the correct mineral content. When you have a proper balance of minerals along with electrolytes, electrical impulses in your body can operate more efficiently.
- Reduce foods that cause swelling. It’s unfortunate, but sugar is a major cause of inflammation, and inflammation can contribute to chronic pain, and slow down cellular regeneration.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is PEMF Therapy?
PEMF stands for pulsed electromagnetic fields. Injury and ailment in the body disrupts the cell's ability to function properly. The PEMF energy travels through the body, creating a tiny electrical pulse at the cellular level. This might feel like a "pulsing" sensation, and may cause muscles to slightly contract. That electrical pulse helps cells to "reboot" their chemical and electrical processes, so the body can return to more normal functionality.
Is PEMF Therapy effective?
PEMF Therapy in Lexington uses the same therapy that NASA uses to restore damaged joints. It's frequently used for rheumatism, joint dysplasia, and joint trauma, among other treatable issues. This non-invasive and painless therapy is proven to help a patient's body regenerate tissue and improve electrical functionality.
How soon does PEMF Therapy produce results?
Every person heals differently. Some patients feel an immediate increase in energy after a therapy session. Most patients feel relaxed, with less stress and/or anxiety, and experience a decrease in their issue symptoms. Many also have better sleep at night—another important time for the body to heal!
How long are PEMF Therapy treatments, and how many can I do?
Make sure you check with your doctor first to confirm your condition and its treatment. Most PEMF Therapy sessions last approximately 15 minutes. PEMF Sessions can be done up to twice a week.
There's zero risk of "overdosing," so you can experience the positive effects of PEMF Therapy throughout the year, year after year.
Are there any side-effects or contraindications to PEMF Therapy?
PEMF Therapy is safe and painless. Rarely, after treatment a patient might have feel a mild headache or fatigue for a short time. This is usually due to the detoxifying affects of PEMF.
Contraindications include patients with pacemakers, insulin pumps, any other implanted electrical stimulators, and pregnant women.
