One of the latest innovations in osteoarthritis treatments is magnetic knee braces. Magnetic therapy has been used for centuries by everyone from the Chinese to the ancient Greeks as a form of therapy. Today over 200 million people use magnet therapy to treat myriad diseases.

The ions in your body create small electromagnetic fields, and the magnets work to keep these fields in harmony. Pain and swelling is often a result of imbalances in these fields, and magnet therapy works to restore them to their natural state. This can result in an increased concentration of nutrients and improved blood flow in the designated area.
