The FDA has approved PEMF technology as an effective treatment for 2 types of bone-related conditions.
Healing non-union fractures.
A non-union fracture is a serious complication of a bone fracture that can be permanent unless intervention is performed. It may occur when a fracture moves too much, has a poor blood supply, or become infected. PEMF may be a viable alternative to surgery.
Cervical fusion patients with a high risk of non-fusion.
Cervical fusion surgery is typically done for spinal disc problems in the neck. PEMF is approved for cases in which it is likely that the fusion intervention is likely to fail.

A Sample of Clinical Research
A wide range of clinical studies have performed about the viability of PEMF as an effective treatment to stimulate bone health. Here are a few examples.
Research published by the National Institute of Health indicates that PEMF may be a viable treatment for osteoporosis, particularly glucocorticoid-induced osteoporosis and osteonecrosis. While this has not been FDA approved, the results look promising.
Research shows bone density in osteoporosis-prone women significantly improves over a 12 week period.
Research at Cairo University shows that PEMF is effective for improving bone mineral density in elderly women.
Human bone marrow stromal cells are able to recreate cartilage and bone. Research shows that PEMF frequencies enhance proliferation, differentiation, and viability of these cells.
