I posted this under another persons post but thought it deserved its own post:
This prob should have its own post but...
Im a swimming coach and 6 month post L5/S1. I have been very lucky to feeling nearlyyy back to normal with the odd ache and pain. The main residual issue I have is my tips of toes and hands are still cold/numb.
So at the gym monday a guy came in with a 1x1m cotton square and while he did his stretches he laid on it. I asked him about it and he said it was for helping with his numb feet? Any way as he was due in the pool he let me borrow it for an hour and asked I just lay on it.
Now I've had my cold feet/hands for 10 months at this point but within an hour my fingers and toes were actually warm? When I stood up within 20mins I was back to as previous.
I wrote down the pad details as a Norstar magnetic Mini-pad.
The guy told me he got it from a japanese friend who said they have these magnetic sheets in most city hospital beds post recovery rooms as they aide circulation and bone growth. He's in for an L5/S1 in a week and was told more permanent effects take up to 7 weeks (hence he has it pre-op). As I told others I can't endorse something I don't understand but I can't ignore what after 40mins on this sheet did for me.
I am very very curious if anyone has used these magnetic pads? - All the research I've read is inconclusive but regardless I know I physically felt a change.
