PEMF Therapy for Migraines

Updated: May 9, 2023

A study published in the Journal of Clinical trials in December 2015 has confirmed the benefits of PEMF therapy for migraines. This study is merely one of many studies that shed light on the fact that PEMF therapy for migraines can be beneficial for both addressing the pain and symptoms associated with migraines, as well as providing benefits in terms of reducing the occurrence, frequency and duration of headaches and migraines.

Migraines and headaches tend to be both acute and chronic conditions, and they take a huge toll on your work and your family life. The work hours lost due to migraines for migraine sufferers is considerable, not to mention time lost with family. Reducing migraine frequency from an average of ten days to three may not sound like a lot but over the course of a lifetime, that works out to far too much time lost which you could have spent appreciating your loved one. This aspect was taken into account in the new clinical trial on PEMF therapy for migraines.

This study used a PEMF device producing a frequency of 10Hz at intensities of between 4 and five micro-Tesla and treatment sessions of six sessions a week. Patients received PEMF therapy three times a week. Therapy three times a week seems to pale in comparison to losing previous time with your loved ones on a regular basis.

According to the study, results reported included average days lost to migraine that decreased from 9.78 to 3 in the treatment group. In other words, patients who received regular therapy reduced the frequency of their migraines by more than two thirds! Work hours lost dropped from 40.8 to 7.4 in the treatment group or less than a quarter of the hours previously lost due to migraines.

In another double blind placebo controlled study, 42 subjects were treated with PEMF therapy for one hour a day, 5 days a week for two weeks. Seventy-three percent of the patients who received treatment reported a substantial reduction in headaches, with 45% reporting a good decrease and 14% reporting an excellent decrease in the migraines suffered.
