You might have heard of magnet therapy as a form of supplemental or alternative medicine. Some patients will use strong magnets as a treatment for everything from simple pains to diabetes to schizophrenia. But is there actual science behind this practice, or just snake oil?
It’s actually not outside the realm of possibility to think that magnets could have real benefits to offer to your health. There are magnetic fields present throughout your body, and laboratory studies have suggested that the wearing of magnets may manage a patient’s pain. Unfortunately, the science is not quite concrete enough to rely upon yet. If you are experiencing any chronic pain, talk to our Edmonds chiropractic clinic.
