Chronic Pain Recovery with PEMF

Struck by a car
Pat Boutell describes how PEMF helped her recover from chronic pain following being struck by a car.
In 1985 I was a pedestrian hit by a car. The bumper hit my knee, which severed the Anterior and Posterior Cruciate and Medial Collateral Ligaments. The surgeons only found the MCL to reattach. I had a compound fracture of the Tibia, and as I landed sitting up, a fractured Coccyx and compressed spine – I lost 2 inches in height. My more “minor” injuries were extensive soft tissue damage to my neck and hand.
Because of the extensive injuries to my leg, I’ve had a muscle rotation, a muscle flap of the Soleus, three skin grafts, and both knees replaced in my 25 surgeries. I don’t remember not being in pain, but I worked to reduce my painkillers for my health’s sake.
Every night I do my back exercises before bed and take two painkillers. Then, after 2 hours of sleep, I’d wake up, do more back exercises, and take more meds for pain. After about 2 hours, I’d be able to fall asleep again but would wake up again, needing more exercise.
PEMF Treatment for Chronic Pain
I began PEMF treatments in August 2014 at Roadway to Wellness, which exclusively uses Curatronic equipment. I was not expecting fast results, so I have been pleasantly surprised that I am sleeping much better and am in far less pain. I have reduced my meds from 2 painkillers twice a night to 2 twice weekly. I no longer have to do an hour’s worth of back exercises in the middle of the night, but less than 10 minutes. As a result, I have more energy and feel more alert.
With my recovery, my husband and I have had the wonderful opportunity to travel the Mediterranean. Here we are depicted in front of a statue of King David in Israel.
I am very grateful for the treatments and so impressed by Curatronic that I purchased an XPSE home unit from Pemf-Tech Inc. I don’t want to ever be without PEMF!
