Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field Therapy (PEMFT)
Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field Therapy (PEMFT) is a non-invasive, pain free therapy that has been found to be beneficial for the treatment of various injuries. PEMFT works at a cellular level to restore normal membrane potential of damaged cells, as so it can aid the repair of bone related conditions, soft tissue pathologies and pain management. An increasing number of equine therapists are incorporating PEMFT into their therapy, due to the superior results it offers when used alongside manual therapy.
This course is designed to provide you with an understanding of the theory of PEMFT including mode of action, biological effects and research supporting the application of PEMFT. The main focus of the course will however be the use of PEMFT in equine rehabilitation, with emphasis on treatable conditions, contraindications and safe application. This course is designed to enhance a therapist’s skills and provide them with the knowledge to safely incorporate this modality into their therapy to enhance the results. Therapists will find this a very useful extra modality!
