What is pulsed electromagnetic stimulation?
Pulsed electromagnetic stimulation is a safe form of electromagnetic therapy that has been scientifically shown to be effective in treating tinnitus and related conditions.
Why use pulsed electromagnetic stimulation to treat tinnitus?
Research studies have shown that pulsed electromagnetic stimulation can relieve tinnitus in a significant proportion of tinnitus patients, and improve related conditions such as anxiety and chronic pain.
Studies also show how pulsed electromagnetic stimulation achieves its biological effects by inducing and enhancing cellular processes involved in healing and repair, including vasodilation, tissue oxygenation, anti-inflammatory responses and regeneration of nerve cells.
One effect is to alter the behavior of neurons, a process known as ‘neuromodulation’. The excitability (hyperactivity) of neurons in the auditory cortex and other areas is found in tinnitus and some other conditions. Pulsed electromagnetic stimulation is shown to calm this altered brain activity and soothe related symptoms.
This ability to act on different physiological pathways means that pulsed electromagnetic stimulation is a suitable treatment option for most tinnitus patients. Positive benefits include reduced loudness and occurrence, and improved sleep and mood.
Is it safe?
Yes, Cleanhearing Sono frequencies are in the 1-15 Hz range and at the safe, lowest end of the frequency spectrum.
What is special about Cleanhearing Sono electromagnetic stimulation?
