Pain Relief using Magnet Therapy

February 28, 2012

 

How will magnetic therapy help reduce the knee pain associated with osteoarthritis?

Nerves generate electrical signals – this is well known.  Sodium and potassium constitute positive ions while chloride and calcium make up negative ions.  The nerves help keep a healthy balance of negative and positive ions so that there is a slightly negative charge.  When this balance of ions shift and the nerve becomes more positive than negative pain signals are sent to the brain.  A strong negative magnetic charge can reduce these pain signals.  The magnet must be strong and it must be placed with the negative side down.
