Normally bone density peaks between the ages of 30 to 40 and in subsequent years the bone density decreases. If the decrease is significant enough, the so called “fracture threshold” is reached. At this level of bone density the patient is at significant risk of fracture. These thresholds are reached at different ages and the extend of the bone loss varies depending on the peak bone mass and generic and environmental factors, including activity level and diet.
PEMF Treatment & Prevention of Osteoporosis
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) have been proven effective in the treatment and prevention of osteoporosis in clinical studies. Studies revealed that PEMF appear to mediate bone regeneration via cell signalling proteins including growth factors, cytokines, and prostaglandins.
