Arthritis & Magnetic Therapy
We feel that the following is important. It is taken in full from the Arthritis Research UK website on 20th of February 2012:
| "Magnet therapy |
What is it?
It has been suggested that magnets can be helpful for pain relief, including low back and knee pain. Magnets can be used in different ways, including wearing them in bracelets, taping them to your joints and using various magnetic devices, including mattress pads.
Is it safe?
Unfortunately the evidence is too patchy to make clear recommendations on the kind of magnet therapy that might help you. But it’s very safe, so it may be worth experimenting – although you’ll have to weigh this up with the cost of the products."
