Magnetic therapy products for pain

Magnetotherapy is a kind of alternative medicine that helps pain relief. It is an ancient traditional medicine that had its origins in China over a thousand years ago and slowly spread its influence across the globe. This system of treatment involves the use of therapeutic magnets in the form of magnetic beds, magnetic pillows, magnetic mattresses, magnetic mattress pads and magnetic underlays to name a few.

Pain management is a term that has come to stay in the present day scenario. Stress, erratic climatic conditions and improper diets have brought about many ailments for treatment of which, elaborate research is being conducted. Symptoms keep increasing by the day and people are on the look out for quick, efficient and reliable solutions.

At the end of a long and hard day you feel very tired and want some rest. When you work for long hours on end, you feel drained of all your energy and a good night's sleep is all that you need, to start afresh another working day. In such instances the magnetic mattress pad comes to your rescue and gives you a comfortable and peaceful night's sleep for that fresh and rejuvenated feeling the next morning.

Magnetic treatment not only helps you with restful sleep but also mitigates body pain and stiffness. Magnetic mattress pad gives you muscle and joint pain relief, back neck pain relief, sciatic nerve pain relief, fibromyalgia pain relief and relief from hip pain, shoulder pain and several others. The magnetic mattress pad also claims success in treatment of feline and canine arthritis pain, in short pet therapy.

Although studies have proved the effectiveness of the magnetic therapy products, the medical fraternity has yet to confirm the validity of the therapy. However, lack of medical evidence has not deterred people from using these magnetic therapy products to gain relief from all kinds of pain in the body.

Properties of magnets

Magnets have several benefits to their credit and a few of them are listed here below:

• Magnets enhance blood circulation in the body. Iron present in hemoglobin of the blood is stimulated by the magnets when you use them in the form of mattresses or mattress pads. This enhances the blood circulation in the body and increases the oxygen level which is the precise requirement for a person's well-being. Conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, and inflammatory pains are aggravated by lack of blood circulation. This is where Magnetotherapy offers relief to people suffering from these conditions.

Human beings use 20 mg of iron each day for the production of new red blood cells, much of which is recycled from old red blood cells. [Source: Wikipedia]

• We know that pains heal with the application of heat. Magnets provide this heat and give you good relief from pain.

• Drugs that you take for curing a particular condition may have several side-effects, but magnets used for healing pains and joint stiffness have none. Drug-free therapy is, quite obviously, preferred by most people.

• Magnets are also said to be responsible for change in the hormone production (the hormone secreted by pineal glands regulates the sleep-wake cycle), which is why magnets provide a cure for insomnia.

• Magnetic therapy products give you relief from stress, helping you relax and fall asleep.

Points to note

When you purchase a magnetic mattress pad, ensure that:

• Magnets are embedded in the pads in a regular sequence so that whichever side of the pad you use, it should give the desired magnetic effect to the entire body

• The gauss rating of each magnet individually is extremely important. The stronger the magnetic gauss, the better the magnetic effect and relief from the problem. Therefore, inquire about the gauss rating of a single magnet to be sure that you buy the right magnetic mattress pad.

• If, however, you are not suffering from any chronic condition and want to purchase the magnetic mattress pad for your overall well-being, you may go in for the lower-rated gauss pad. This depends on your physical condition.

• Do not use a magnetic mattress pad if you are pregnant or a pacemaker has been implanted in your body.

By investing in a magnetic mattress pad, you have nothing to lose, except, of course your pain and trauma.
