1. Targeting MSCs with PEMF Has the Potential to Treat Rheumatoid Arthritis

PEMF is emerging as a novel and highly promising means of treating Rheumatoid Arthritis. Mesenchymal stromal cells/pericytes (MSCs) in synovial tissue play a vital role in tissue repair. However, this repair function can be repressed by the inflammatory milieu. Extremely-low frequency pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) has an anti-inflammatory effect by causing differentiation of MSCs, so PEMF therapy can help MSCs to repair damaged tissue. This study demonstrates that PEMF therapy has the potential to treat Rheumatoid Arthritis by targeting MSCs.

2. PEMF Therapy Can Be Used to Promote Bone Regeneration

A new study researches the effects of PEMFs on the crucial osteoblast precursor cells and seeks to determine the optimal conditions that will promote bone regeneration. The researchers applied a daily controlled dose of pulsed electromagnetic radiation in varying duration to MC3T3-E1 osteoblast precursor cells and monitored cell viability and metabolic activity. The study shows that PEMF parameters must be chosen carefully to produce the desired effects for bone regeneration.

3. A Systematic Review of Randomized Controlled Trials about PEMF Therapy for Low Back Pain

In this study, researchers perform a comprehensive database search using Pubmed, Scopus, Cochrane Library and PEDro databases to assess the effectiveness of the PEMF therapy for low back pain. They find that PEMF therapy seems to be able to relieve the pain intensity and improve functionality in individuals with low back pain conditions.

4. Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields and Tissue Engineering of the Joints

In this article, authors have systematically reviewed the literature on the influence of PEMF in joints, including articular cartilage, tendons, and ligaments, of publications from 2000 to 2016. They find that PEMF therapy might have a beneficial effect on cartilages and tendons. It is important to establish an optimized protocol for PEMF treatments.
