Magnet Therapy

March 23, 2010

We all know that braces provide additional support to joints that are injured or stricken with degenerative diseases such as arthritis. While the brace is undoubtedly a necessary measure in treatment, there is more that can be done. For centuries, cultures around the globe have utilized magnets in medicine, and now there are peer-reviewed studies that support this practice.

A magnetic knee brace gives you the added stability of a traditional knee brace while also taking advantage of therapeutic magnet therapy. Because there are charged particles in our body that are constantly creating magnetic fields, the magnet is able to interact with these ions to achieve a harmonic balance. This increases blood flow and helps relieve pain and swelling.
