Do Magnetic Therapy Products Really Work?

Aug 25, 2008
Most of us have heard about magnetic products before, and quite possibly the first time we heard about them we were a little disbelieving and a little curious all at once! But for those of us who haven't heard of magnetic therapy you are probably wondering how in the world can a magnet reduce pain and inflammation from the body, and does it really work? Well that is a good question, it's a long answer, but a very good question.

In short, all of the mental functions in our body are controlled by electromagnetic fields produced by the ions within the body. When an injury occurs and tissue is damaged, positive ions move to the affected area, triggering pain and causing inflammation. In order for the pain to be relieved and for healing to start taking place the electromagnetic field must be restored to their normal balance. By applying a magnetic field to an injured area, we are restoring the electromagnetic fields back to normal. The magnetic field relaxes the capillary walls, as well as surrounding muscle, connective tissue, and also allows for increased blood flow.

The Chinese were the first culture to use magnetic therapy almost 4,000 years ago. Other cultures including Greeks, Egyptians, and Europeans have also applied magnets to relieve pain and other symptoms, currently over 150 million people use this therapy worldwide. Several studies in the United States have shown that magnetic therapy is an effective method for reducing pain and discomfort. So this isn't just another "quack" type aid. Magnetic therapy really does work and it has not only been published in many medical journals but it is also a scientifically proven method to reduce or take away pain completely.

There are several different magnetic therapy products that you can use such as braces for the lower back, ankle, and knees, as well as for tennis elbow. There's also seat pads, dream pillows, headbands and much more. Several different manufacturers produce magnetic therapy products however HoMedics and Therion seem to be the most popular. If you would like more information on magnetic therapy products, or if you would like to buy a magnetic therapy product you can take a look at a few the sites below:
