This study investigated the ability of permanent magnets to inhibit the
formation and development of joint degeneration in a small sample canine
osteoarthritis model that progresses in a similar fashion to human arthritis.

This study was implemented among 25 female subjects with diagnosed
fibromyalgia and reports scales on pain-relief and sleep patterns by resting
on mattress pads with Tectonic brand magnets vs. sham mattress.

Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
The responses of 20 patients who underwent suction lipectomy and
post-operative magnetic field therapy were evaluated in this study. Tectonic
magnetic patches were placed over the operative region of 10 patients and
shams were placed over the same approximate surgically operated region of 10

Research papers from major universities
and medical colleges have studied the effects of static magnets fields on
pain associated with arthritis, post-polio syndrome and diabetic nerve
- Baylor College of Medicine,
researchers found that magnets placed over pain trigger points resulted in
pain relief in post-polio patients.
- Tufts University School of Medicine
study demonstrated that magnets helped relieve pain of fibromyalgia.
- New York Medical College study showed
that magnets helped treat foot pain in diabetics.
- Emory University study, depressed
patients seemed to improve when treated with a mild magnetic pulse.
- Several news reports have disclosed
that other researchers are testing magnets for sickle cell disease and
- (Details are available upon request from Magnetherapy,
More research reports can be found in the
many magnet therapy books.
Note: Consumers should
not conclude that results of the above trials will be replicated in future
studies or that the properties of other brands of magnets in size, shape and
configurations will produce similar effects.
