Magnetic Bracelets Really Can Help With Pain?

Can magnets help with pain?

With the alternative medicine industry as popular as ever, it should come as no surprise that some product claims are more than dubious, if not flat out untrue.

Popular even in Cleopatra’s time, the belief in magnetic bracelets as a cure-all continues to be a hotly debated topic. Scientists, business people, and people seeking relief from pain and disease all have their own opinions.

Today, you can find magnets in socks, compression sleeves, mattresses, bracelets, and even athletic wear. People use them to treat pain caused by arthritis as well as pain in the heel, foot, wrist, hip, knee, and back, and even dizziness. But do they really work?

So, do they really work?

According to the vast majority of research, the answer is no. Davis’ assertions and a 1976 study have been largely disproven, and there’s little to no evidence that magnetic bracelets have any future in pain management.

A 2007 review of research concluded that magnetic bracelets aren’t effective at treating pain caused by osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or fibromyalgia. Another, from 2013, agreed that both magnetic and copper wristbands have no more effect on pain management than placebos. The bracelets were tested for their effects on pain, inflammation, and physical function.

According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH), static magnets, like those in a bracelet, don’t work. They warn people not to use any sort of magnet as a replacement for medical attention and treatment.

Magnetic Bracelets Really Can Help With Pain?Are magnets dangerous?

Most magnets marketed for pain relief are made from either pure metal — like iron or copper — or alloys (mixtures of metals or of metals with nonmetals). They come in strengths between 300 and 5,000 Gauss, which is nowhere near as strong as the magnetic force of magnets you find in things like MRI machines.

While they’re generally safe, the NCCIH warns that magnetic devices can be dangerous for certain people. They caution against using them if you also use a pacemaker or insulin pump, as they might cause interference.

А ведь покупатель нынче пошел разборчивый: ему и качество подавай, и бонусы. И если еще несколько лет тому назад клиента устраивали баллы или любая другая внутренняя валюта интернет магазина, которую можно было потратить только в этой торговой точке и больше нигде, то сейчас большинство предпочитает получить назад процент от суммы, потраченной на покупку.
В принципе одно другому не мешает, поэтому маркетологи большинства интернет магазинов объединили в системе лояльности оба способа поощрения покупателей и за одну и ту же покупку насчитывают клиенту баллы и возвращают часть потраченных средств.
Для покупателя вдвойне выгодно, если к программе подключается еще и банк – тогда процент за покупку автоматически начисляется вам на карточку.
