THE EFFECT OF MAGNET THERAPY ON FIBROMYALGIA PAIN
Feb 27th 2001.
Over the past decade, chronic pain sufferers nave become avid consumers of
magnet therapy. Unfortunately doctors and consumers alike know very little about
the clinical effects of these products.
In a new study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary
Medicine, researchers from the University of Virginia describe the largest and
most rigorous clinical trail to date of a magnet therapy used to treat patients
with chronic pain. Results were obtained from 94 patients with Fibromyalgia , a
syndrome affecting 2% of the population and responsible for widespread pain,
fatigue, fitful sleep and anxiety in sufferers.
Researchers randomly separated participants into 4 treatment groups to test the
effects of magnetic mattress covers on several measures of the participants
pain. Ratings of the subjects pain were measured over six months using the
Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire, pain intensity ratings, tender point counts
and tender point pain intensity.
One group slept on mattress covers that administered magnetic therapy to the
whole body. A second group slept on mattress covers that administered
therapy to part of the body . A third group slept on a mattress cover that had
no magnets in it. The last group were instructed to continue with their normal
pain treatment plans with no magnet therapy.
Ann Gill Taylor RN. From the University of Virginia, says “ We did find a
statistically significant difference in pain intensity reduction for the
magnetic mattress cover groups. The 2 groups that slept on the magnetic mattress
covers generally showed the greatest improvements in outcome scores of pain
intensity level, number of tender points on the body and functional status after
Alan P Alfano M.D. from the University of Virginia says, “ The results tell us
maybe this therapy works, and that more research is justified.”
