My mum who lives in Cyprus has just been diagnosed with arthritis in her back and I have read your information about the magnetic bracelets and was surprised to see that they only worked on the arm and hands. So is there anything that could help her back? Sally Sutton
There is definitely magnetic products that will alleviate your mother’s back pain. Depending on how bad her pain is, she might need to use just one magnetic device or a combination of magnetic products for the best results.
Magnetic therapy works best when you place the magnetic device as close to the point of pain as possible. The further away from the point of pain, the weaker the magnetic field and hence the less benefit you will gain from it.
So a magnetic bracelet is ideal for treating the hand, wrist and lower arm but pointless for treating the back.
You need to use the magnetic treatment specifically for the back. This includes a magnetic back belt, sleep pad and water wand.

Pain is an everyday experience for thousands of people throughout the world. Nearly two thirds of the adults in the U.K have experienced back pain at some point in their lives. Whilst many others suffer pain due to arthritis, fibromyalgia, rheumatism, sports injuries or work related repetitive strain injuries.
Long term chronic pain has devastating consequences and can lead to conditions such as depression and stress. Whilst performing even the simplest day to day task of getting out of bed, going up the stairs or even getting dressed can be extremely challenging, and for some, impossible.

So what is static magnetic therapy then? It is simply the application of sufficiently strong therapeutic magnets onto your skin at the point of pain. The magnets have to be at least 800 Gauss to have any healing or pain relieving effects. The magnetic field created penetrates through your muscles and tissues to the stimulate blood flow and reducing inflammation at the painful area. As inflammation gets less and less and healing is promoted due to the increased blood flow, pain relief is achieved.
There is a wide range of magnetic therapy products available to treat pain on virtually any part of the body. You have magnetic bracelets for wrist, hand and arm pain relief; magnetic straps and belts that you can apply on different part of the body such as your legs, back, elbows, thighs; magnetic mattress pads and pillow pads that you can use at night time to sleep on and relieve pain.
