How do Magnets Work?
Magnets do not block pain signals, they treat the cause of the pain.
Conventional pain killing drugs like paracetamol and codeine based tablets (di-hydrocodiene,
co codamol, co dydramol, tramadol and codeine phosphate) work by blocking the
pain stimulus pathway. They interrupt the signal that starts at the point of
pain (stimulus) and travel along the nerve pathways via the spinal cord to the
pain receptors in the brain.

Depending on the type of drug, the signal may be interrupted at the pain
stimulus or at any point along the nerve pathway to the brain. Pain killers only
last for a short period of time. Depending on the type of pain killer and where
they interrupt the pain pathway and the strength of the drug, they can last from
The pain pathway from the point of pain to the brain
Different pain killers
block pain at different points along the pathway.
Magnets do not block the pain signal. They work on the cause of the pain, which
is why static magnets have to placed as close to the point of pain as possible.
Pain is not caused only by the onset of trauma (e.g. puncture wound) although
you will feel pain if you experience a sudden traumatic injury. Trauma alone
does not cause all of the pain. Pain is also caused by pressure on the nerves.
This can occur with out a traumatic injury, as with long standing chronic
conditions. Joint wear and tear, chronic damage from earlier injuries or chronic
inflammation can cause pressure upon nerves. The pressure upon the nerves is
usually caused by swelling or inflammation around the injury, this extra fluid
causes the tissues to swell and thus places pressure upon the nerve endings.
Compression of the nerves causes constant pain stimuli to be sent to the brain.
This causes the chronic constant pain, that is often associated with
To relieve the pressure on the compressed nerves the excess fluid in the tissues
must be removed. Once the pressure has been removed the pain will subside.
Magnets do reduce the inflammation in the tissues therefore they are very
effective at reducing pain at the point of injury. Because the cause of the pain
has been removed ( i.e. the inflammation) the pain relieving results will last
for a much longer period of time than pain killers, which are just blocking the
signal. Whilst the magnetic field is reducing the inflammation it is also
improving blood supply to the injured area. The extra blood flow brings fresh
rich oxygen, nutrients and hormones. One of these hormones is endorphin.
Endorphin is known as the “happy” hormone as it is responsible for mood
enhancement. The other function of endorphin is to kill pain naturally. As
increased blood flow reaches the injured area the concentration of endorphins
increases and pain is reduced.
When the magnets are removed from the area of pain, the cause of the
inflammation will return, as the magnets are a treatment for the inflammation
and poor circulation, they are not a cure for any disease process. Depending on
the severity of the injury or ailment the effects of the magnets can last days,
weeks or even months. Each individual will experience different time scales for
the return of the pain as the disease process for each individual is slightly
