Pain Relief

Pain Relief From Magnets

 

Can magnets provide pain relief for joint pain like osteoarthritis of the knee?  Magnet therapy can work as long as the following requirements are met:

1.  The negative side of the magnet must face the body.

2.  The magnets must penetrate deep enough to reach what hurts.

3.  The strength of the magnetic field must be maintained long enough to affect the target area.

4. Use multiple magnets to fully cover the entire treatment area.

5.  Must be comfortable enough to wear consistently so the magnets are given enough time to work.
