When the coronavirus pandemic first began to impact the way people went about their daily lives, isolation felt like a novelty. The disruption of the frantic pace of daily life was a welcome relief for some – until it lasted for months.
It can be exceedingly difficult to maintain health and wellness when regular routines are disrupted, gyms and fitness studios remain closed, and the social groups you rely on to keep you motivated can no longer gather. But with the increased stress that results from long term isolation, taking good care of yourself if even more important than ever.
The comfort of a regular routine can boost mental health, which in turn promotes good physical health. And regular physical activity can have positive effects on mental health as well. It goes both ways. That’s why continuing to move, even when you are avoiding crowded gyms and classes, is vitally important.
PEMF for performance and recovery
Movement is critically important to good health. The American Heart Association recommends that adults engage in at least 2 ½ hours of moderate aerobic exercise weekly. This can feel difficult to reach when isolating at home, but there are a number of ways to approach it.
A wealth of options exist online, from dance classes to yoga, online spin classes to high intensity interval training. All are a great way to keep yourself moving, but it can be challenging to safely engage in a new activity on your own.
Starting a new activity at home without the advice and guidance of a fitness professional can be difficult, especially when proper technique isn’t followed. Bad habits can develop without your knowledge, and using muscles that have been sedentary for a long time can lead to big problems. You may find yourself with a muscle strain or excessive pain from overuse or injury. That’s where PEMFs can help.
PEMF therapy can be used to prevent injuries, promote faster recovery, and heal injuries when they do occur. PEMF therapy also offers a boost of energy helping improve performance. While this may not be a top concern in isolation, PEMF therapy can help keep competitive athletes at the top of their game even while they are unable to compete.
Numerous research studies have shown the positive effects PEMF therapy has on healing and pain relief. One animal study1 showed positive effects of PEMF treatment on healing rotator cuff injuries compared to untreated subjects, with no adverse side effects. Another randomized, double blind trial2 demonstrated positive results regarding the impact of PEMF therapy on chronic musculoskeletal pain.
PEMF for mental health and stress relief
There’s no doubt that the current state of the world has caused a sharp spike in stress for many people. And chronic stress has been shown to have myriad negative impacts on health, including mental health.
The body perceives stress the same way, whether from physical threats to survival or emotional trauma. The fear and uncertainty invoked by the pandemic may be telling your body that you are under constant attack, which prompts a range of undesirable cellular activity and disrupts proper nervous system signaling.
PEMFs can calm your nervous system and reverse the effects of chronic stress. Research has shown that PEMF therapy can promote entrainment, the synchronization of brainwave patterns, to promote optimal nervous system functioning.
PEMF for general health maintenance
Many alternative methods that promote health and wellness have been harder to access during the pandemic crisis. Chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists and other alternative providers may have closed their offices indefinitely.
Even if they are open, these practitioners are costly and often not covered by insurance. And financial instability caused by the pandemic may make regular visits impossible.
PEMF therapy has a wide range of demonstrated benefits for keeping your body healthy and slowing the aging process. These benefits include improved circulation, muscle relaxation, reduction of inflammation, better sleep, improved immune function, pain reduction, better oxygenation of tissues, and enhanced cellular repair and recovery.
Using a BioBalancePEMF device for physical wellness in isolation
Daily treatment with a PEMF system at home can be a great way to manage the effects of isolation and maintain both physical and mental wellness. Investing in a system is a one time cost, rather than ongoing copayments or coinsurance accrued from repeated visits to clinicians.
