I have recently loaned my pulsating magnetic field mat to an elderly lady to help with pmr. She immediately felt an increase in pain and did not wish to continue further, however, with cases of "arthritis", (pmr is grouped with arthritis), there tends to be an increase in pain before the condition gets better, resulting in significantly less or no pain.
Also, much research points to the effectiveness of pulsed magnetic fields for bone health and bone healing, including fractures and osteoporosis.
The PEMF may have 3 beneficial effects:
1. relieve pmr pain
2. assist healing with vertebrae fracture
3. relieve pain associated with osteoporosis
