The Assisi Loop is an FDA cleared, evidence-based therapy for the non-invasive, non-pharmacological treatment of pain and swelling. The therapy has proven effective for pain for decades. Pulsed electromagnetic fields are highly effective in a diverse range of therapeutic applications with no side-effects or adverse reactions.

We are very excited about this new treatment modality because it truly offers a treatment that addresses the underlying problem, and does not just treat the symptom of pain. Not only is tPEMF effective and safe, but it also represents a significant cost saving by eliminating or reducing the chronic use of pharmaceuticals and allows the owner to perform these treatments in the comfort of their own home.

Conditions that can benefit from the Assisi Loop:

  • Post-operative pain & Edema
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Degenerative Joint Disease (DJD)
  • Tendon/Ligament damage – increases tensile strength
  • Soft Tissue Trauma & Wound Care
  • Bone Union/Growth
  • IVDD (Intervertebral Disc Disease)

How It Works

tPEMF provides a specific signal carried on a series of magnetic field pulses to the treatment site(s). These uniquely specific energy parameters are transmitted through injured tissue to target the affected area via direct induction. A tiny electrical signal is deposited to the tissue in a way that mimics physiological stimulus that normally occurs in healthy tissue, thus stimulating cellular repair. tPEMF is designed to accelerate the normal anti-inflammatory activity of the body. Multiple, sometimes concurrent, biological activities take place from the initial pain and swelling, through new blood vessel formation (angiogenesis) to tissue regeneration and then tissue remodeling.

These processes are all related to an initial step, so accelerating that first electrochemical process should accelerate the whole cascade. Tissues will respond depending on their current state, so acutely inflamed tissue should rapidly respond by reductions in pain and swelling, while chronic wounds, for example, should see improvements in blood flow and growth factor production. Pulsed magnetic therapy research demonstrates that tPEMF therapy promotes various healing mechanisms. It has been found to promote bone tissue regeneration in humans (even where bone non-union exists), connective tissue regeneration, wound tissue regeneration (even where chronic wounds exist), and nerve tissue regeneration, all with no reported adverse reactions.
