 Do copper bracelets and magnets really ease arthritis pains? 
by What Doctors Don't Tell You - 10/26/2009
We often see people walking around with copper bracelets on their wrist. The bracelets are supposed to ease muscle aches and arthritis pains – but do they actually work?

Apparently, they are no better than a placebo, or sugar pill – and nor are magnetic wrist straps, which are also worn to ease musculoskeletal pains, a new study has discovered.

The devices were tested on 45 osteoarthritis sufferers, but the researchers couldn’t detect any real difference between them, or when measured against a ‘dummy’ magnetic strap, or non-copper bracelet.
