What is pulsed electromagnetic stimulation?
Pulsed electromagnetic stimulation is a safe form of electromagnetic therapy that stimulates your body’s own physiological repair processes. Research shows that is is effective in treating tinnitus and related conditions.
Why is it suitable to treat tinnitus?
Research studies have shown that participants experience statistically significant relief from their tinnitus after receiving electromagnetic stimulation, and that these changes are accompanied by corresponding changes in brainwave activity.
Excitability of neurons in the auditory system is a feature of tinnitus, and electromagnetic stimulation has been shown to modulate and calm this hyperactivity .
Researchers have also identified mechanisms of action by which electromagnetic stimulation modulates the activity of neurons and achieves its other biological effects, including:
- Increased nerve growth
- Stimulation of chemicals involved in tissue repair
- Modulation of cellular action linked to neural damage
- Improved anti-inflammatory responses
- Improved vascular function
This multifaceted action means electromagnetic stimulation can target tinnitus through various potential pathways, such as:
- Stimulating anti-inflammatory responses in the auditory pathway
- Modulating auditory system hyperactivity
- Targeting the abnormal vascularization that often underpins tinnitus, including objective tinnitus that is caused by actual sounds of the body
- Easing tension in muscle and connective tissues, and stimulating tissue repair
Is it safe?
Yes, Cleanhearing Sono frequencies are at the safe, lowest end of the safe non-heating frequency spectrum, in the 1-15 Hz range. Similarly, the magnetic field strengths used in Sono therapy are at the very low end of the spectrum. Sono’s patented delivery method is designed to achieve the desired biological effects at these very safe low frequency and low magnetic field strengths, so you can use Sono safely at home.
