Magnetic therapy is widely used to support exercise performance. During intense training muscle fibres are subjected to microtears which can lead to inflammation and delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). Discomfort typically develops 12 to 24 hours after a vigorous exercise session, with pain peaking between 24 and 72 hours after
the exercise was performed.
If muscles are not allowed to rest, recover and repair, damage can progress leading to missed training time and, if prolonged, reduced performance. Exercising muscles also generate waste products such as lactic acid which need to be flushed away rapidly to reduce cramping. By improving blood flow through tiny capillaries, magnetic therapy can improve the supply of oxygen and nutrients needed for repair and the removal of these cell wastes.
Both magnetic therapy and negative ion technology appear to have beneficial psychological effects which may play a role in maintaining performance and motivation. Both low field magnetic stimulation, and negative ions have been found to rapidly lift a low mood, for example.
Magnetic therapy can also reduce inflammation so that repair, healing and recovery occur more effectively.
“I have used magnetic therapy for over twenty years, and found personal benefit from wearing a Trion:Z bracelet that generates both a magnetic field and negative ions. Although many people like to rubbish the use of these innovative approaches for well-being, I urge you to try it for yourself and form a genuine opinion without jumping to a knee-jerk conclusion.” – Dr Sarah Brewer ,
