Penetration Depth & Ligament Laxity

Hi @Bob Can I ask if the A9 can penetrate 5cm or so to get deeper at the cervical spine level? If yes, at what setting will it penetrate really deep? If not, would c5 provide enough depth that when I put it posteriorly on my neck, it can get to the anterior of the spinal cord from behind (or atleast closer to the bone/cord)? That’s where the ligaments are that I am hoping pemf can help tighten or heal? I know that there aren’t any studies on it yet, but have you heard stories of PEMF fixing ligament laxity from injury?

The A9 should work fine for that. To get the best effect at depth, I suggest you stack the coils, bumpy-side-to-bumpy-side, then place them directly over the point on your spine where you need it. Set the intensity to 11 or 12, and use it for at least 6 hours per day every day. Keep in mind ligaments heal very slowly even under the best circumstances.

Then please report back to let us know how it goes and what you learned and observed.

Great, thanks. Which setting on the A9 correlates to an 11 or 12 intensity? When you mention a long time, are we talking months or years? I know that this is no set timeframe, but would love to get some sort of an anecdotal benchmark from your own experience or laxity healing stories from other people? Thanks!!

On the A9, use “H” to begin with, and adjust if necessary.

I used M1 at 2 behind my neck. I got a treatment effect under my tongue. The effect was stronger closer to the stacked coils, but it did reach that far.

In other words, straight through my spine or wrapping around it to reach under my tongue.

It took about an hour to become noticeable. I ended up switching placement to target that area from under my chin, and the effect starts much earlier at intensity 1.

OK, so we now know that you are very responsive to ICES-PEMF. That’s an excellent start. So now the issue of “penetration depth” is not really an issue. Now it is a matter of finding the optimal coil placement and time of use.

Place one coil on the posterior neck and one on the anterior facing it - that will definitely target the anterior spine. I had 2 herniated C/S discs causing severe pain in my shoulder and arm in Sept 2017. Using the A9 regularly, I probably could have used it more often, it was maybe 4-5 months before the pain subsided.

yes, with bumpy-sides out for each coil, that should target the deep tissue very well. Try long periods of time every day, maybe all night, for example, to start with. This might get you the best results in the shortest time.

Hi skn, Curious if you’ve had any luck improving your laxity ? Have you seen improvement ? I have the same issue plus some torn ones.


I’m curious to know as well, as that is my issue.

Yes @Cat Would be good to know how your journey has gone. I hope well, and if anything else has helped? I am using an M1 on 9 right where you did at the back of your neck. I dont get that sensation on the tongue you describe, but hopefully it can have some effect. I am also looking at other supplements etc… too. @2tone, and @idglassic, let me know how you are getting on. Thanks all, Steve

I still get the same effect. I forget to use it, though. I brought it with me on vacation to a different country, but looks like the cables didn’t make it. I must have taken it out with a buff. So I’ll have to make due with red light for now. Shipping for a new one would take almost a month, so no point.

Is the red light helping you? I find that it actually makes my neck more loose.

I found the coils stuffed into the pouch the machine was in. I’ve started using it again. Bonus, I found I can make due with two batteries. That makes it easier with plane travel. I haven’t used it enough lately to get much of an effect. Should help with more regular use.

From what Bob says, if you have scar tissue that helps shore up a joint, it could actually get looser if PEMF is taking that scar tissue away while healing the tissue. You’d need the muscles to take over that job.

For me the effect is more saliva. I use red light for tired muscles in that area. I debated leaving the M1 at home, but could not leave red light at home. That’s the difference between something that can be symptomatically treated with Xylimelts and what would need voltaren gel regularly with possible skin irritation and would still not give the effect red light does on me.
