PEMF for Traumatic Brain Injury

The lymphatic system plays a vital role with our overall health. The lymphatic system is the "sewage system" which filters our blood (along with the cardiovascular system) and is instrumental with our immune system response to disease.


Common symptoms of someone suffering with TBI:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Behavior or mood changes
  • Tiredness or sleepiness
  • Trouble with memory or concentration
  • Sensitivity to light or sound

Athletes, soldiers, auto accidents, and certain professions run a higher risk of TBI than others. The NFL recently settled a $767 Million lawsuit with 4,500 former players.

TBI comes in three forms:

When TBI occurs there is a pro-inflammatory cytokine that is released. This cytokine is responsible for signaling cells to perform their tasks. These tasks include:

  • Fighting illness
  • Expelling cellular waste
  • Renewing cells

When cells are unhealthy the tasks cannot be performed. In this scenario Interleukin, a pro-inflammatory cytokine produces more inflammation. It then becomes a priority to reduce the inflammation.

How can PEMF help reduce inflammation?

    One of the main things PEMF does is reduce inflammation. There was a study peformed using rats and PEMF for TBI. The outcome for this study showed that the pro-inflammatory cytokine was reduced to ten times what it was to signal reducing inflammation, and also significantly suppressed interleukin within 17 to 24 hours after a penetrating injury.


There is also a study performed by Mark Tommerdahl in 2018. Looking at the data you see the following:

    1. Acute TBI the patient did exceptionally well after Day 14

    2. Chronic Mild TBI clients took longer to get results. Depending on their condition it can take one month to five months. But looking at the four patients you see they all made significant progress.

For anyone dealing with TBI our recommendation would be to use PEMF and sign up for one of our package sessions. More than likely it would take consistency to get results. We would steer a client towards a 10 Session Package of 20 Session Package and recommend they come in at least twice a week.

Wishing you much health and happiness!
