How to get pain relief quickly with magnetic therapy treatments?
In the middle ages, physicians used bulky permanent magnets sewn into their
patientsí clothes to achieve therapeutic healing and well being. Due to the
discomfort, these practices although very effective did not last very long.
Hence magnet therapy fell into disuse. Today magnetic therapy has become
much practical and it is fast again becoming a preferred method of healing
and pain relief amongst complimentary and alternative medical practitioners.
Thanks to the development of new alloys, small metal plates of relatively
high magnetic power are being manufactured. One such alloy is Neodymium
which is also called rare earth magnet. It is the preferred type of magnet
used for healing purposes and can achieve very high magnetic strength. A 5mm
in diameter neodymium rare earth magnet can have a surface gauss of up to
3000. The only drawback of neo magnets is that they do tend to rust with
time. Therefore, to increase their lifespan when used in magnetic jewellery,
neo magnets are usually epoxy coated.
If you want to gain pain relief quickly and permanently when using static
magnetic therapy treatments, observe the following rules.
Firstly, and by far the most important rule of all, is to place the magnets
directly over the point of pain. If that is not possible due to the pain
being in an awkward area for example on the knee cap, then place the
magnetic product as close as possible to the point of pain. In this
situation it will be using a magnetic knee strap either just above or below
the knee cap.
Secondly, wear your magnetic product at all times if possible. This is
nearly as crucial as the first point and is the main reason why magnetic
therapy treatments fail to relieve pain. One should aim to wear their
healing magnets 24 hours a day, 7 days a week especially in the first four
to five weeks of the treatment. That way, the magnets will be permanently
working towards relieving inflammation and reducing pain.
Thirdly, use the highest strength healing magnets that you can get. These
magnets will produce the deepest penetrating magnetic field which will get
right down into the muscles and tissues. Such magnets are almost always
required when treating long term chronic pain.
Fourth, use as many therapeutic magnets as possible together. This will
produce a wider magnetic field and hence will cover a larger painful or
injured area on the body. For example, if you are buying a stainless steel
magnetic bracelet, try to get one that has a magnet in each link and a
bracelet that has the smallest link size. That way you are getting the most
magnets for your money. Remember you cannot overdose on magnets irrespective
of how many you use.
And remember; always make sure you ask what the strength of each healing
magnet is in the magnetic product. You need magnetic products that contain
magnets that are at least 800 gauss each or you might as well not bother!
