Today you find thousands of people suffering from pain in the joints, muscles and soft tissues. If you had such a pain and got great relief from using any of the innumerable magnetic therapy products such as magnetic mattress pads, magnetic bed toppers, magnetic bracelets, insoles etc., you would certainly be recommending them to your friends and family. This is quite natural in the sense that you would not go deep into analysing the pros and cons of the procedure so long as you are sure that it is a non-invasive method of treatment.
This is what has happened with magnetic therapy in the present day. Although users of this therapy are aware that it has not been approved by the FDA and enough medical evidence is not available to prove its efficacy, it has still become very popular among the masses who long to get relief from excruciating pain the natural way.
Let's discuss two painful conditions that people normally suffer from and then see how magnetic therapy products help control this pain and let people carry on with their daily chores without much of a fuss.
Fibromyalgia: People suffering from fibromyalgia have their muscles, tendons, ligaments and soft tissues affected. The sufferers don't get to sleep peacefully at night. They may experience depression and head aches. They may also feel numbness in the limbs and sensitivity to bright lights and noises. About six million Americans are reported to be suffering from this painful condition.
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA): This is another painful condition that is categorised as an autoimmune disease where the immune cells attack the body's own healthy tissues. Pain, stiffness and inflammation in the joints are the most common symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. There is no cure for this condition. The pain can only be managed or controlled by using various methods of treatment. Early signs of RA should not be ignored and enough precautions should be taken to prevent it from becoming severe as severity of the condition can lead to deformities and crippling. Although men, women and children are likely to be affected by this condition, women tend to suffer more due to RA. About 75 percent of RA patients in the world are women.
How does magnetic therapy help?
Now let us see how magnetic therapy can help reduce the severity caused by the above conditions.
Magnets basically relax the muscles and the capillary walls of the blood vessels and enhance the oxygen supply to the tissues thereby increasing the functionality of these parts by accelerating the healing process in case of pain or injury. So using a magnetic mattress pad to sleep on when you find yourself diagnosed with fibromyalgia or rheumatoid arthritis helps to a great extent in mitigating the pain and lets you sleep peacefully so that you feel fresh and active to face a new day.
You can be sure of one thing while using magnetic mattress pad- there will be no negative effects. Of course, people going through pregnancy and those with implanted electro-medical devices in their body are forbidden from using magnetic mattress pads because the after-effects of this has not yet been analysed and reported.
About magnetic mattress pad
Magnetic mattress pad goes over your regular mattress and comes in various sizes. The thickness of a pad is about two to 4 inches and the number of magnets embedded or sewn in to the mattress pad depends on its size. The mattress pad may have a maximum of 200 square or spherical magnets. It is said that when your body comes into direct contact with the magnets, the magnetic energy created by the static magnets act on the painful areas in the body and help in alleviating the pain and also facilitates excellent sleep.
