What is HEIT Therapy?

HEIT or High energy inductive therapy (HEIT) is a non-invasive therapy that uses electromagnetic fields to stimulate the healing of tissues and cells in the body. HEIT generates a strong magnetic field of up to 3 Tesla, which is about 600 times stronger than the field of a normal magnet. This magnetic field penetrates cells and tissues to reactivate the electrochemical function of cells and cell membranes, which in turn helps to promote the healing of nerves, muscles, and blood vessels.

HEIT therapy uses a handheld device to deliver the electromagnetic fields to the site of pain or dysfunction. The patient remains fully clothed during the procedure, with no skin contact necessary, and the procedure is completely pain-free. The device emits a series of magnetic pulses that stimulate the cells and tissues in the affected area, which can help to reduce inflammation, relieve pain, and promote healing.

What Are Some Benefits Of HEIT Therapy?

One of the main benefits of HEIT therapy is that it is non-invasive and does not require any incisions or injections. This means that there is no risk of infection, scarring, or other complications that can occur with invasive procedures. In addition, HEIT therapy is a safe and effective treatment option for a variety of conditions, including chronic pain, musculoskeletal injuries, and neurological disorders.

Another benefit of HEIT therapy is that it is a relatively quick and simple procedure that can be performed in a clinical setting. This makes it a convenient treatment option for patients who have busy schedules or who may not be able to tolerate more invasive or time-consuming therapies.

Overall, HEIT therapy offers a safe, non-invasive, and effective treatment option for a variety of conditions that can help patients to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and promote healing. If you are considering HEIT therapy, it is important to speak with a qualified healthcare professional to determine if this treatment option is right for you.

Is HEIT Therapy Like PEMF Therapy?

Pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) have been used as a non-invasive, safe, and effective method to treat several musculoskeletal and other conditions. Research suggests that PEMF may also be beneficial in treating refractory bone conditions, such as delayed healing of fractures, osteoporosis, and osteonecrosis of the femoral head.

PEMF works by stimulating various cellular signaling pathways, which translates the electromagnetic signal into a biological signal at the cellular level. This results in the stimulation of nerves, muscle fibers, and blood vessels through growth factors and other molecules such as fibroblast growth factor (FGF), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), transforming growth factor (TGF)-β, bone morphogenetic proteins (BMP), and insulin-like growth factor (IGF). These cellular responses can help promote healing and regeneration in affected tissues.

Overall, PEMF therapy offers a non-invasive and safe treatment option for a range of conditions, including musculoskeletal injuries and refractory bone conditions. By stimulating cellular signaling pathways, PEMF therapy can help promote healing and regeneration in affected tissues, making it a promising treatment option for those seeking alternative and non-invasive forms of therapy.

How Is HEIT Therapy Beneficial?

HEIT is a cutting-edge therapeutic device that has been developed to enhance the benefits of PEMF. This device utilizes high energy inductive therapy (HEIT), which is a treatment modality that is even more powerful than PEMF. With a power of up to 3 Tesla (equivalent to 30,000 Gauss), which is about 600 times stronger than a normal magnet, high energy inductive therapy provides faster and deeper penetration than PEMF, resulting in quicker and more effective results.

In addition to the known mechanisms of action of PEMF, high energy inductive therapy induces a change in voltage in the cell membrane, restoring its normal resting potential. This normalization of the exchange of electrolytes through the cellular membrane supports optimal balance and function of electrolytes, including the production of energy by the mitochondria. The impressive results of high energy inductive therapy have been demonstrated for a variety of clinical indications.

Overall, the development of high energy inductive therapy has provided a new level of treatment that surpasses the already impressive benefits of PEMF. By utilizing a more potent magnetic field, HEIT allows for faster and deeper penetration, resulting in more effective results. Additionally, the normalization of the cell membrane's resting potential and electrolyte balance further supports cellular function and energy production, making HEIT a promising therapy for a range of clinical indications.

Due to the size of the applicator for HEIT, we are focused on using this therapy for the extremities. That is, we are using it for shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, and ankles. Another benefit is the treatment of plantar fasciitis. 

Benefits of HEIT Therapy

  • Relaxing muscle spasms
  • Preventing muscle and bone atrophy from disuse
  • Increasing blood circulation to an injured area
  • Retraining of muscle firing patterns
  • Release and rejuvenation of the fascia
  • Release of deep and large muscles that cannot be accessed by hand
  • Neuromodulation for peripheral desensitization
  • Improving and maintaining joint range of motion
  • Post-surgical stimulation to prevent venous thrombosis in the calves and legs
Who Cannot Receive HEIT Therapy?

Patients with an implanted electronic device, including: pacemaker, defibrillator, cochlear hearing device, spinal stimulator, etc. Patients were are pregnant are advised not to have this therapy, because it is unclear whether or not it would affect your baby or pregnancy. 

What Can I Expect After a HEIT Therapy Session?

Most patients feel great! The decrease in pain and increase in energy is felt by most patients almost right away. The effect will last hours to days depending on the patient. The sessions do build on each other, so you will start to notice a cumulative effect where the good feeling lasts longer over time. 

Patients With Chronic Pain Now Have An Alternative To Drugs, Injections, & Surgery.
