Magnetic Therapy

magnetic therapy

 

Many patients do not realize that magnetic therapy field parameters must be adjusted to specific conditions to be effective.  For example the same magnets used to treat the fingers should not be used to treat knee pain.

For a magnetic knee brace to be effective it must be designed to provide the correct magnetic field strength.  Penetration and area coverage must also be taken into consideration.  The most effective pain relief will come from medical grade magnets positioned and spaced correctly within a knee support.
