Pulsed Electromagnetic Therapy (PEMF)

Elite Spinal & Sports Care is proud to be Sacramento’s only provider of the most advanced PEMF therapy source on the market utilizing Pulsed Energy Technologies award-winning Pulsed Energy Replenisher (PER 2000). Treatment with this unit boosts energy, relieves pain and rapidly accelerates the healing process. So whether you’re at home, at work or training hard, PEMF therapy will help optimize your performance.


Recharges the “Batteries”

The body is made up of millions of tiny electrical currents and impulses interacting throughout the cells. All cells need energy to function. Both acute and chronic injuries are associated with damaged cells. When we get sick or injured and have pain, the cells “battery”, called ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) is weak and inactive. A healthy cell can perform normal cellular functions at 70 millivolts. A “damaged” cell is weaker, (carrying less than 50 millivolts) and lacks the proper energy to heal and adequately perform normal cell functions.

Like any other battery, one that is drained will never work unless you charge it. This is one of the main reasons why pain often does not go away. PEMF therapy does this by passing waves of energy through the cells at a very powerful and fast rate. This increases the spin of the electron within the cells and activates the mitochondria allowing for increased production of ATP at the cellular level. This, in turn restores or replenishes the transmembrane potential of the cell. Think of this process as “recharging the batteries” inside of you.

Enhances Oxygen to Tissues

Painful joints and muscles are commonly associated with poor blood circulation. Injuries cause our red blood cells to stack on top of one another drastically reducing circulation to these areas. Without proper circulation, nutrients and oxygen are not delivered to the tissues, thus preventing healing and repair. PEMF restores charge to the red bloods cells and causes them to repel each other in minutes. This allows for greater surface area to transport oxygen, nitric oxide production is increased, the cells are able to separate and the blood vessels open up (dilate). This increases circulation allowing for increased amounts of oxygen and nutrients to reach your painful spots thereby promoting healing.

Normalizes pH

Science has also shown that when you apply a pulsed electromagnetic field to a cell, the pH of the water within the cell becomes less acidic and more alkaline. Reduction of acidity makes PEMF great for acute injuries, helps with cramping and reduces acidosis seen in athletic performance. What also happens is the electrical surface tension of the cell membrane can shift on the order of 16-fold. This allows fluids to flow into cell gates much more efficiently. The end result is better oxygen uptake, decreased inflammation and enhanced flow of lymphatic fluid.


Injuries, medication, the food we eat, and the environment cause our body to be filled with toxins. Within our sick and damaged areas, millions of cells are filled with toxins that are unable to escape. Without proper detoxification, our bodies stay in a state of toxicity and prevents us from achieving optimal health.
Cells also have a rigid membrane that makes the release of these trapped toxins more difficult. PEMF produces an effect called Electroporation where the cell gates are stimulated electromagnetically to temporarily open. This makes the cell membranes become softer and more permeable allowing toxins to escape and creates more room for nutrients to enter the cell. The byproduct is better cell function leading to healthier cells. Healthy cells mean a better immune system.

Today’s Top Athletes Use PEMF by Pulsed Energy Technologies

I’ve used Pulsed Energy Technologies for twelve years to help a number of injuries over my career. A lot of people know me for recovering from my injuries quickly, which is accredited to diet and cutting edge technologies. This is where Pulsed Energy comes into play.

Terrell Owens

Retired NFL Superstar and Future Hall of Famer
Recently used the PER 2000 several times for a leg injury. It helped me quite a bit in the recover process. I think PEMF is a great way to help athletes and people get back in the game faster!

Terence Newman

NFL Veteran, Minnesota Vikings
I played in 3 World Cups as well as professionally in 3 different countries. As a former professional athlete who had to retire early due to injury-when it’s over, you’re dealing with pain consistently. The one thing I can tell you is the PER 2000 has eliminated a lot of my pain.

Eric Wynalda

US Soccer
I love that I have a unit that can travel with me everywhere. I’ll tell you what, the PER 2000 and PEMF has definitely made a difference. I am fascinated with the product Pulsed Energy Technologies has created, and truly stand behind its ability. My stance on marketing is simple and organic. I give Pulsed Energy Technology genuine support, and that’s really the only way I operate.

Jake Arrieta

Chicago Cubs Pitcher, 2015 Cy Young Award Winner
I am a professional baseball player and both my Uncle and Father were Major Leaguers as well. We’ve been exposed to all the technologies “under the sun” over the last twenty plus years, including all the PEMF machines. I can tell you that as far as I’ve seen and experienced, there is no modality out there better than the PER 2000 to use. At minimum, this is something that every athlete and person should have access to.

1. What is the PER-2000?

This therapy can be used without the use of X-rays or drugs; although the diagnostic process and or previous treatments may have already included these. It is thought to stimulate the body’s own healing ability. In many instances there can be an immediate reduction of pain as well as improved mobility and improved function. It is non-invasive and there is no need for anesthesia. There are minor secondary effects following treatment, generally some soreness that will dissipate in a short amount of time.

Cells also have a rigid membrane that makes the release of these trapped toxins more difficult. PEMF produces an effect called Electroporation where the cell gates are stimulated electromagnetically to temporarily open. This makes the cell membranes become softer and more permeable allowing toxins to escape and creates more room for nutrients to enter the cell.   The byproduct is better cell function leading to healthier cells. Healthy cells mean a better immune system.

2. Why should I choose the PER-2000?

With over 20 plus years of combined experience, the team at Pulsed Energy are truly considered experts in this technological field. The level of power in the unit, the special pulse discharge rate, their unique loop applicators, their PEMF expertise as well as unparalleled results are just a few of the reasons the PER-2000 is different from the other devices on the market. While other PEMF type products claim to be more powerful, more effective, or unique, the PER-2000 stands alone as THE most effective form of PEMF type technology in the world.

3. Is it safe?

YES! In 30 plus years of research, study and mainstream use, there have been no reported negative side effects with the use of PEMF therapy.

4. Is it just like Electricity, like TENS or Electrical Muscle Stimulation?

NO! This is much safer and far less invasive than direct current, electrical stimulation or other electrical based modalities. Unlike those technologies, no electricity passes from the PER-2000 into the user. We know this because the PER-2000 is frequently used in and around water.

5. How does it work?

The body is made up of millions of tiny electrical currents and impulses interacting throughout the cells. The energy from the PER-2000 is discharged into the loop applicators and a strong, but brief electromagnetic field is created. The energy is then safely induced into the user. Think of this process like “recharging the batteries inside of you.”

6. Is it new?

NO! This technology was around before our Great Grandparents! The evolution of PEMF and “Energy Wellness” is based on Physicist Michael Faraday’s principle of Magnetic Induction. This was studied by Jacques-Arsène d’Arsonval, understood and harnessed by Nikola Tesla, and then proven by Georges Lakhovsky, Antione Priore and Giovanni Dotto, the PEMF technology is responsible for the advent and use of many other technologies in the Health and Wellness field today. From ultrasound and electrical stimulation, to laser or sound therapy, these great Scientists still have a large impact in today’s world.

7. Who can use it?

It seems just about everyone uses the PER 2000. Our users vary from Professional Athletes, Athletic Professionals, “Weekend Warriors”, Medical and rehabilitation facilities, Medical Practitioners, Home users, Veterinarians, Horses and other animals. Most importantly, everyday people like us who just feel rundown, fatigued, stressed out or exhausted always have a good reason for some “Energy Support” from the PER 2000.

*If you are pregnant, have a history of epileptic seizures, have active or diagnosed malignancies, or electronic implants, you are contraindicated from using the PER 2000.

8. How will I feel?

Pulsed Electromagnetic Therapy naturally gives your body’s cells the extra push they need to perform at peak capacity. Your body will deal with pain better, recover faster, and just plain function at a higher level. At Elite Spinal & Sports Care, our PEMF device is a must for every athlete who takes their performance seriously. This unique therapeutic system delivers a pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) right into your body’s cells. The chemical reactions in every cell in your body are stimulated by electrical signals which give the energy they need to work more efficiently. The result is that your body performs better and you have more energy, endurance, and stamina on the field, on the road or in the pool.
