I was introduced to this drug-free pain relief device at the end of November 2016. At first, I used it sparingly, a few times a week. March of 2020 will mark my three-year anniversary of using it daily.
My most significant pain reduction took place within 4-6 months of using it daily. Yet, even in the few months prior to using it daily, I still experienced improvements that I hadn’t expected. Those improvements included more energy and less time needed to recover from physical activity.
What I experienced after using it daily includes but is not limited to: relief from lower back pain, plus a reduction in inflammation and pain from abdominal adhesions. Compare different types of PEMF devices.
