It has been believed for years that magnetic therapy helps with everyday pain in the body. You hear all of these wonderful stories from athletes and people of normal life.

Anybody here have a testiment to add to this ? Reason I ask, I used a knee brace for golfing that has them, I noticed some difference when I don't wear it , I wasn't sure as to how these wrist magnets work over a period of time, they claim it works best to wear them all the time.

A little more specific, please ? I know the Q-Ray cost alot more.

Is it one of those things, you get what you pay for ?

I use Nikken. I know they work, because I got the mattress and quite have back, leg and knee pain. Slept on the mattress for about 6 months, then loaned it to my uncle to try. After 3 weeks being off the mattress I hurt like hell, as before. Stayed off it for a couple of months and kept having problems. Got the mattress back and after a week or so I haven't hurt since.

I believe it with works out a doubt.

Damn, there are so many options with this magnetic therapy, which to choose ?

As far as I know Nikken was the innovator.

I'm a natural skeptic. I don't believe anything I hear and only half of what I see. To me this sounds like BS.

I'm fairly certain that small magnets or pointless as those magnetic fields would barely break the skin. If the field is going to affect the body somehow, it should be pretty damned strong.

Placebo on the other hand, I'm certain exists, and is incredibly effective.

FWIW, I bought one on Sat., I have had it on every since, I can honestly say, I feel the difference. I bought one of the cheaper ones, the TheraP, magentic wave wrist bracelet. Getting use to it has been hard to wear, I have never worn anything on my wrist before.

As for how I fewel, The joints don't hurt as much, especially after a round of golf , the next day. I was wondering if 2 would work better ? Or maybe get a new knee brace with them in it ?

My God, man! Take that thing off right away! Look what it's done to your typing skills! It's obviously throwing off your magnetic north equilibrium! Wearing two of them can only make things worse!
