How much should a magnetic bracelet cost?
How much should you spend on a magnetic bracelet to be sure you will get any form of pain relief? Here’s a question that was asked to one of out therapists last week about the cost of magnetic bracelets.
Hi, I have bought a magnetic bracelet from Walmart for $5.00. Is it too cheap that it may not give any relief from my finger pain? – Gayas ahmed
Usually a very cheap bracelet would indicate that the magnets are not very strong. As higher strength medical magnets cost more to make. The price of a higher strength magnetic bracelet should therefore be higher.
You do also need to be careful about paying too much for magnetic bracelets.
Sometimes retailers put high prices on magnetic bracelets to make more profit and it doesn’t truly represent a higher strength magnetic product.
The only way to be sure is to find out the strength of the medical magnets in any
magnetic product you buy. Check the packaging for a surface gauss rating, it needs
to be more than 800 gauss. If there is nothing on the packaging then ask the retailer. If they can’t answer your question then I would stay away and look elsewhere. You don’t want to be spending money on inferior magnetic products that will not help you in any way.
