Anyone using PEMF for muscle recovery?

Anyone using PEMF for muscle recovery?

When I entered my 60s I noticed my recovery periods taking longer and my watt production dropped off significantly after 75 miles. I have been using Pulsed Electromagnetic Therapy for several years on chronic low back pain with good results. A couple of weeks ago I decided to try it on my quadriceps, treating them before, during and after a ride. The change has been significant. My average mph and watts are up and I feel less drained after 6 hours in the saddle.

I was interested to see if anyone else was using PEMF. I hate to take drugs so this is my go to for pain anywhere on the body and now for muscle recovery also.

Steel bikes.

I find quantized gravitational hypercharge therapy, followed by Higgs boson immersion, yields the best results, but I am also open to various spin-1/2 alternative therapies as well.

Is that like a TENS unit? Never thought to use one on muscles

Those are of limited benefit unless you take an hour long neutrino bath twice a day.
