Hypertension Therapy

hypertension OVERVIEW

High blood pressure usually has no symptoms. So the only way to find out if you have it is to get regular blood pressure checks from your health care provider. Blood pressure is the force of your blood pushing against the walls of your arteries. Each time your heart beats, it pumps blood into the arteries. Your blood pressure is highest when your heart beats, pumping the blood..


Pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy is a noninvasive technique, which provides low field electromagnetic stimulation. The therapy of PEMF is achieved by altering biological and physiological systems via low energy and non-ionizing electromagnetic fields. PEMF therapy was originally used clinically to manage osteoarthritis related pain and stiffness and to augment bone healing. In addition, recent research has explored the beneficial therapeutic effect of PEMF on microvasculature and circulation. More recently, research interests have expanded their focus to additional mechanisms and syndromes, including a focus on the effects of PEMF on peripheral vascular function and blood flow. It has been suggested that PEMF therapy enhances the binding of free calcium (Ca2+) to calmodulin (CaM) and this phenomenon might alter tissue repair and/or pain. Moreover other studies suggested an effect of PEMF on Ca/CaM-dependent nitric oxide (NO) signaling pathways, which is one of the major components for controlling vascular tone and BP.

The PEMF demonstrated an increase in Nitric Oxide after therapy. For resting BP, there were no differences in systolic BP (SBP), diastolic BP (DBP) or mean arterial pressure (MAP) between groups. During exercise, PEMF had a reduction in peak SBP (p = .04), but not SHAM (p = .57). PEMF demonstrated significant relationships between baseline SBP and change in SBP following therapy and between MAP and change in MAP following therapy, but no such relationships were found in SHAM. Subjects with resting hypertension (SBP ≥140 mmHg) in PEMF (n = 11) had significant reductions in SBP, DBP and MAP when compared to SHAM with hypertension. In this sub-group analysis, PEMF demonstrated lowered peak SBP at a given exercise load but SHAM did not.  PEMF may increase plasma NO availability and improve BP at rest and during exercise. However, this beneficial effect appears to be more pronounced in subjects with existing hypertension.
