How Electromagnetic Energy Alleviates Joint Pain

How Electromagnetic Energy Alleviates Joint Pain

Joint pain is one of the most common types of chronic pain. Nearly 15 million people experience joint pain caused by arthritis alone, and that’s just one cause of joint pain!

Here at Wynn Over Pain in National City, California, we know that joint pain greatly impacts your mobility and your overall quality of life. That’s why we address joint pain from multiple angles, including medication, acupuncture, physical therapy, and joint injections.

Below, Brenton Wynn, MD highlights a specific joint pain treatment: electromagnetic energy. Read on to learn more about electromagnetic energy and how it helps alleviate chronic joint pain.

What is electromagnetic energy?

Electromagnetic energy is energy that travels in waves and has both electrical and magnetic fields. Therapies that rely on electromagnetic energy focus on the intensity and frequency of each type of energy component: the electrical impulses and the magnetic energy. For example, the electrical impulses are measured in frequency (hertz), while the strength of the magnetic field is measured in mT, or magnetic field. According to a 2020 review published in the Journal of Pain Research, electromagnetic energy alleviates musculoskeletal pain and improves functionality.

How does electromagnetic energy alleviate joint pain?

Electromagnetic energy reduces pain and improves joint function by stimulating your muscles and nerves. The energy waves 一 keep in mind that the frequency can be adjusted with low- and middle-frequency when targeting specific areas 一 encourage your body to heal itself. 

The electromagnetic neurostimulation can:

Here at Wynn Over Pain, Dr. Wynn also uses Sanexas electromagnetic technology to help reduce your chronic joint pain. As a non-invasive therapy, Sanexas can help alleviate joint pain without the significant downtime of surgery or other invasive procedures. When you arrive for your session, the Sanexas device will be placed on your affected joint. You may feel a mild pulsing sensation. The type of frequency needed, the length of your treatment, and the number of treatments are dependent on your specific needs.

Does it work?

Research indicates that electromagnetic energy is both safe and effective for the management of chronic pain, especially in the knee joint. Electromagnetic energy not only alleviated joint pain but also improved functionality in the study participants. This treatment is drug-free, well-tolerated, and complements other treatments (such as physical therapy) well.

Get the comprehensive care you need

Chronic joint pain isn’t just a nuisance. It can derail your current way of life, making it hard to walk, engage in your favorite hobbies, or even just get through the day without pain. As pain management specialists, Dr. Wynn and our team are experts when it comes to managing joint pain. Generally speaking, therapeutic electromagnetic treatments are well tolerated, but they aren’t right for everyone. Because electromagnetic energy therapies may not be ideal for those with a pacemaker or who are pregnant, Dr. Wynn first determines if this therapy is right for you. During your consultation, he reviews your symptoms and your overall medical history. 

In addition to electromagnetic energy treatments with Sanexas technology, we provide guidance on lifestyle changes that support healthy joint function. For example, engaging in low-impact exercise, eating a nutrient-dense diet, and keeping your muscles strong help support your joints.
