How Do Magnets Relieve Pain?

How magnets relieve pain is not fully understood. In a tightly controlled study—a rarity in the world of alternative medicine. Thomas Skalak of the University of Virginia found that static magnets reduced swelling by up to 50 percent in the tiny hind paws of rats. Skalak published his results in the November issue of the American Journal of Physiology.

Another study was in the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation in November 1997 by Dr. Carlos Vallbona of the Baylor University School of Medicine. Dr. Vallbona was skeptical of the effectiveness of magnets until he strapped one on his own painful knee with dramatic relief.

Vallbona studied 50 post-polio patients with painful arthritic joints. He randomly gave active or inactive magnets to the patients to strap onto their painful trigger points for 45 minutes. After 45 minutes, 76 percent of the "active" magnet patients reported pain relief while only 19 percent of the "inactive" group reported less pain. He has no explanation for this phenomenon, but appropriately encourages further double-blinded research. (Courtesy of The Huffington Post)
