What Are the Side Effects of Bone Stimulation?

In most cases, there are no side effects to bone stimulation other than minor discomfort that occurs in rare instances, writes Orthofix. Numbness, tingling, headache and nausea may occur. Doctors don't recommend bone stimulation for pregnant women or children as it has not yet been tested for those demographics. They also don't recommend bone stimulation for consumers with cardiac pacemakers as the electromagnetic pulsing may have adverse effects on some pacemaker brands.
