Pain relief

Magnets are thought to producee pain relief by reducing inflammation, by normalising the movement of ions and the flow of electric 'messages' in affected areas, which in turn damps down over-activity of pain receptors, and by stimulating production of the body's natural painkillers, known as endorphins, to damp down pain perception. When levels of endorphins were measured in blood before and

Pain relief stress

after exposure to a static magnet (3950 gauss) for fifteen minutes, endorphin levels were found to increase by 25% one hour afterwards, and by 45% two hours after exposure. Some researchers also believe that the effects of stress hormones cause magnetic imbalances in cells, and that applying the negative pole of a magnet can stabilise or 'repolarise' affected cells which may also bring pain relief perception.

Pain relief melatonin

Melatonin is a hormone produced within the pineal gland in the brain. Melatonin has a variety of effects in the body, including helping to regulate the body's biorhythms and sleep-wake cycle and boosting immunity. Exposure to electromagnetic fields emanating from 60 Hz alternating current has been shown to reduce nocturnal melatonin concentrations in electric utility workers, especially if they also worked in low light levels. Another study of 12 men with low back pain also found that exposure to a low-frequency alternating magnetic field for 3 weeks (20 min per day, 5 days per week) either at 10 o'clock in the morning, or at 6 o'clock in the evening experienced a significant reduction in the nocturnal melatonin rise that usually occurs, regardless of the time of exposure although the percentage of inhibition of melatonin secretion varied among individuals. Magnetic therapy may therefore help to offset the effects of exposure to harmful environmental electromagnetic radiation although this is not yet confirmed.
