PEMF pain management systems

Hello ALL~

Have any of you heard/what are your thoughts on Pulsed Electomagnetic Therapy (PEMF)? I saw a show where Dr Oz was saying that it is the newest and greatest healing technology, yet I know of no one who has tried it. I guess I am to the point where I am willing to try anything. If Dr. Oz promotes is I am going to assume that it is on the up-and-up, right?

Thank you.


  • I have not tried this, occasionally I watch his shows and the studies do not always seem to have been done on the products he is discussing on air. He usually states that experts are divided,or something to that effect when that is the case. The one that sticks out in my mind is a weight loss episode where there were a few weight loss herbal treatments, there weren't many studies done, and he did acknowledge that on the show, and suggested which one he would try based on the info he had. Basically, look at if there are double blind studies, peer reviewed research, etc. If you do try it please let us know, and welcome to SH.

  • Its just interesting to me that a person has a show and says things like this is good or you should take this and then off camera he doesn't support any products and will not allow others to say anything like Seen on the Doctor O show. He supports none of the products.
