No, it's not well proven. The evidence base is very shaky - trials that suggested it did work were not able to be replicated and some trials found no benefit.

As long as you're not pregnant, don't have a pacemaker, etc, it won't hurt, but don't spend too much money on it!

Absolutely - if it won't hurt you or your pocket, there's no harm in trying it...just don't waste a lot of money on anything like this.

i guess it is the end of the road again.... some people would give this a try even if it costs lot of money if they cant find anything else that helps them.. and may find that it helps them.... i have to have private physio asi cant get hands on physio o the nhs. i dont want to have to pay for it but i have too in order to be able to have a live.... i odnt drink or smoke so i choose to pay for this physio if it means that i can have a better quality of live a sfor me the physio helps me. so i guess the magnet treatment is the same....it is up to ht eindividual on whether they want to spend that extra money. it may not be a case of wanting to but having to if they cant find nothing else to work.

Re: Magnet therapy

I have been using the magnets on little plasters for a while now and I think they are great! They stop the pains from my sciatica and the pains in my neck and shoulders are eased. I get mine from Poundworld....Pack of 10 for £1 funnily enuff...hehe :P
Just because I am in pain doesn't mean I am one! LOL

min i used the patch like it said in the information booklet that came with it and follwed the in structions an dit said to wrap it around your back next to the skin. it said nothing about putting a layer of clothing between. as it says it needs skin contact in order for it to heat up.????????

I've used the Therma wraps too and they really do last ! i used mine on my lower back and left it on all day and night, it stopped working in the middle of the night though. The only thing is that they are a bit too big and i have to wrap it around and around and around :crazy:
