Mountain Medical Specialties Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field (PEMF)
and Pulsed Magnetic Field (PMF) Therapy.
Mountain Medical Specialties has integrated the application of PEMF and PMF frequency therapy into a conventional medical and surgical practice. Mountain Medical Specialties patients are afforded the opportunity of experiencing the benefits of PEMF and PMF therapy both in a clinical setting and in an outpatient setting under the supervision of a physician. The PEMF and PMF frequency specific generating devices were conceived, prototyped, and clinically tested under the direction of a Board Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon and Rehabilitation physician with a staff of medical assistants specially trained in the application of PEMF and PMF frequency generating devices.
Over the past ten years, Mountain Medical Specialties patients have experienced the benefits of PEMF and PMF therapy applied for a wide variety of medical pathologies as well as structural and functional problems. Through trial and error the frequency specific programs have been modified with improved clinical results. Well over 95% of clinical cases have been treated with Pulsed Magnetic Fields with primarily three PMF frequency generators: MR7, MR72,and MagRez-B.
The clinical effectiveness is often related to the duration of dysfunction or pain prior to the patients visit. Major structural dysfunctions such as “bone-on-bone” degenerative osteoarthritis often fail to respond favorably and will usually require total joint arthroplasty. In prescribing PMF therapy it is critical that an underlying diagnosis is not missed. Diagnostic studies are often ordered and reviewed prior to the initiation of PMF therapy. In addition, medications prescribed by other physicians are rarely discontinued. Patients are followed up between 4 and 8 weeks. Nearly all patients after their initial treatment in the clinic are sent home with a frequency specific PMF and asked to apply the device between 4 and 8 hours per day for 2 to 8 weeks. For chronic pathologies patients apply the PMF devices 4 to 8 hours per say for several months.
With well over 900 patient treated with PMF therapy over the past 10 years with 1000’s of hours of treatment, there has not been reported a significant adverse reactions. Approximately 1% of patient report a skin irritation that is resolved by moving the PMF or PEMF device.
