Magnetic Knee Brace

Magnetic Knee Brace

Heat and ice are traditionally used to affect blood flow, providing comfort and pain relief to an injured area. However, thermal remedies take time to radiate through muscle tissue to affect blood flow. Heat and ice also require pauses in treatment that can allow swelling to return.

Magnet therapy can provide the same benefits of thermal remedies, but works faster. Studies on both people and animals have shown that strong magnets will reduce swelling, bruising and pain.  Magnetic therapy can work!

Strong magnetic fields work fast because they’re able to reach deep muscle tissue. This means magnetic therapy can affect blood flow, leading to faster relief than thermal remedies. Magnets can also be used for as long as necessary, without pausing treatment.
