Twenty-two randomized controlled trials (RCTs) with a total of 1,557 patients were included in this meta-analysis comparing pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy to a control (sham or no treatment) for promotion of fracture healing. Outcome of interest included pooled healing incidence, time to healing, pain, bone mineral density (BMD), and functional outcomes. Sub-group analyses were conduc...
