They do say in the letter that the PEMF device is "cleared" (not approved) for:

1. Stroke rehabilitation by muscle re-education
2. Prevention or retardation of disuse atrophy
3. Increasing local blood circulation
4. Muscle re-education
5. Maintaining or increasing range of motion
The only places you'll see that it's "approved" for use by the FDA, is from alt-med sites that promote all kinds of crazy things like drinking bleach along with 500-calorie-per-day starvation diets to lose weight, and daily enemas and monthly high-colonics to improve "gut health." That, and the websites of companies that actually sell the devices themselves.

I would encourage people who are interested in reading updates on evolving medical treatments to use google scholar as their search option. Enter in this situation PEMF and double blind pain and check the date of publication box so only more recent material is presented

Google Scholar

Your challenge will be to separate the good data from those published in journals which accept any material including those produced by the manufacturers. But it is a start. Testimonials are not considered as useful in seriously evaluating benefit .. post hoc ergo propter hoc

Off topic, but thanks, Blueash, for letting us know about "Google Scholar"; I hadn't heard of it before.
