A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial using a low-frequency magnetic field in the treatment of musculoskeletal chronic pain [Fibromyalgia] – Source: Pain Research & Management, Winter 2007

Exposure to a specific pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) has been shown to produce analgesic (antinociceptive) effects in many organisms.

In a randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled clinical trial, patients with either chronic generalized pain from Fibromyalgia (FM) or chronic localized musculoskeletal or inflammatory pain were exposed to a PEMF (400 muT) through a portable device fitted to their head during twice-daily 40 min treatments over seven days.

The effect of this PEMF on pain reduction was recorded using a visual analogue scale.

  • A differential effect of PEMF over sham treatment was noticed in patients with FM, which approached statistical significance (P=0.06) despite low numbers (n=17);
  • This effect was not evident in those without FM (P=0.93; n=15).
  • PEMF may be a novel, safe and effective therapeutic tool for use in at least certain subsets of patients with chronic, nonmalignant pain. Clearly, however, a larger randomized, double-blind clinical trial with just FM patients is warranted.
