Magnet Therapy

Magnet therapy is a much talked about alternative pain relief treatment these days. This is the reason that magnets are used in mattresses, belts, shoes bracelets and many other products and the demand for magnetic products is increasing tremendously. People in pain are now looking forward for soft treatments rather than taking pain killers and going under surgeries. The market of magnet therapy products is vast and growing with the time and you will find a wide variety of magnetic therapy products online for various purposes.

Types of Magnets: 
There are two types of magnets static and permanent. But among the two the static magnet of different strengths are used for health purpose. The static magnet is incorporated in leg and arm wraps, shoe inserts, bracelets, mattress pads-pillows, hair brushes, necklaces and more. Also it is seen that individuals with rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis or fibromyalgia who used magnets had noticed a significant decrease in pain.
Magnetic pillow

How magnet therapy works? 
For treatment thin, metal magnets of various sizes and strength are placed in close proximity to the painful areas of the body. The magnets produce a magnetic field which reduces the pain; according to some studies magnetic field causes changes in nerve cell function which results in blocking the pain signals while the other studies states that magnet relax capillary walls boosting the blood flow to the painful areas. The magnet strength is described in terms of “gauss” or “Telsa” and 1 Telsa is equal to 10,000 gauss. Magnets which are used for treatment have higher magnetic strength and therapeutic magnets generally in the range of 200 to 10,000 gauss.

Magnet Therapy not for everyone: 
 Every treatment has a cautionary measure to follow and same applies to the magnet therapy as well. For example magnet therapy is not recommended during pregnancy, patients with epilepsy, patients who are on blood thinning medications or suffering from internal bleeding. Magnet therapy should be avoided if the patient is having an internal heart pacemaker as the magnet will interfere with the signals to heart. Medical and health specialist recommends patients not to replace their conventional medicines with the magnet therapy. The patients are advised to consult their health providers before seeking the magnet therapy and in case of severe injury, pain or disease they should take conventional treatment.

Magnet therapy is a billion dollar market which claims to cure many diseases. But it is also true that all individuals are not same and have their own medical and physiological state. It is not necessary that what works for one will be beneficial for another person. So it is advisable to consult a health provider before opting for magnet therapy.

Back pain and discomfort are the most common symptom that every pregnant women experience. During pregnancy it’s not only the tummy that changes but back and hips too make adjustments as ligaments loosen and the weight re-distributes. As the baby’s weight increases it puts extra pressure on the bladder which ultimately results in chronic lower back pain. To find relief some women opt for the support wears which gives extra support to belly. There are various types of support products available online which caters to needs of pregnant women.

Tips for Choosing Right Walking Aids

If you or your loved one is suffering from mobility difficulties due to foot surgery or an accident then it is important to find an appropriate walking aid. Finding an appropriate walking aid can help them in recover fast, maintain proper balance and increase independence. Today, there is a huge selection of walking aid available online such as canes, crutches and walkers but finding the correct walking aid is important. Many of us are in a mind frame that all mobility aids are same and can be used for any purpose. But by ignoring the importance of selecting the correct device results in selecting inappropriate, damaged or wrong height devices.

It is important to understand that getting a correct walking aid helps in faster recovery and gives secure footing. Selecting a correct walking aid is not an easy task as different walking aids cater to different needs. Below I have discussed in detail about Canes and Crutches which can help you in selecting the correct device.


Canes are the widely used walking aid as they support weight and prevent falls. These are used when a person requires limited support or have minor difficulties with balance, instability or weakness in leg. And before purchasing a cane its style and length should be taken in to consideration.
Style: There are various handgrip styles and shapes available and the most common style is single point and quad or three point cane. It is suggested that people who suffer from arthritis should use single point cane while the patients with neurological impairments should use quad cane. But the cane which can be easy to grip and feel comfortable should be selected. Canes with four feet provide better stability than straight canes but they can be heavy or difficult to use and carry.


Crutches are used when a person has gone under a surgery or injury and is not able to use the legs to support the weight. Crutch transfers the weight from legs to the upper body. They come in two types namely the underarm crutch and the forearm crutch and are suitable for the people with upper body strength. Things to consider while buying crutches are:
Style: An ideal crutch is one which gives comfortable grip and provides proper padding on top.
Length: It is important to select the correct crutch length which will properly fit to the user. An improper fitted crutch will result in muscle pain or nerve damage. A crutch should give enough room to fit 2 to 3 fingers between underarm and top of the crutch which allows user to stand straight comfortably with his elbow bent 15 or 30 degree as the hands rest on handles.

So now don’t let surgery or injury force you to stick to one place or to a wheelchair. Move around freely and heal your problems. Also consult your doctor before choosing a walking aid.
