What is a Magnetic Knee Support?
At Supports Direct, we provide high quality magnetic knee supports which aid in providing a welcome relief on knee joints. Knee joints often endure the strain of daily activities such as simply walking, standing, climbing stairs or engaging in exercise or sports. Magnetic knee supports provide high levels of support for people of all ages who would benefit from additional support, either because of weak joints which may be prone to injuries, or after an injury for joints which are recovering.
A magnetic knee support is a support to be placed around the knee joint, with magnets strategically placed, particularly around the knee cap, to help reduce pain. Magnetic therapy is an alternative medical practise which has been used for many years as a drug-free, non-invasive solution. Magnets have been used by many people over hundreds of years as pain relief and treatment for swelling.
If you go to your medical specialist regarding knee pain, they are likely to recommend the use of a magnetic knee support to aid your recovery.
What is a Magnetic Knee Support Used For?
Magnetic knee supports can be used for people of all ages who need support after having suffered an injury to their knee, or if their knee/s is/are weak and in need of additional support. The magnetic knee support can help relieve pain and strains in the knee area, providing support for people with weaker knees, and can even prevent injuries to the knee from happening.
The general wear and tear of everyday life; activities such as walking, playing sports and lifting heavy items can cause your knee to grind down the joint, weakening it and possibly causing more serious issues in the future. Many sports people choose to wear knee braces during their sports games and exercise regimes, such as weightlifting and squats, or during football or rugby games to prevent injury.
Approximately 160,000 hip and knee replacements are performed each year. If you fear that you may have weak knees, a magnetic knee support may well prevent you from having to undergo this procedure.
How does the Magnetic Knee Support Work?
Magnetic therapy is said to work via a mixture of several different methods, which are all relevant to the magnetic knee support we provide at Supports Direct. The magnetic knee support works in the following ways:
• Increased blood flow
The magnets within the magnetic knee support are said to create magnetic fields which are said to attract and repel charged blood particle, creating movement and warmth in the blood steam, thus increasing the blood flow around the injury. Blood vessels will widen, allowing for more oxygen and nutrients to access the area of injury. It is thought that this will reduce swelling and allow for more movement in the stiff joint.
• Reduced sensation of pain
Magnets are said to activate the nervous system, reducing the pain signals sent to the brain and relieving the pain sensation around the area of injury, in this case the knee joint.
• General Health Benefits
Aside from benefitting only the area around the knee where the magnets are placed, magnetic therapy is also thought to promote a person’s general health and well-being. Research has suggested that magnetic fields are present in all living things, including a person’s body. Some experts believe that imbalances of magnetic fields can cause pain and a less effective immune system. Use of magnetics may restore magnetic balance, thus relieving pain and chances of infection.
