Success with permanent Magnets

Posted by Warren C on 10/04/99 at 00:00 (011478)

I've just be diagnosed with PF and I'm going to try some nikkon (?) magnetic insoles that a friend of mind has been recommending. Just wondering if anyone knows of anyone who has tried them and with what success.

I saw in the store today that Dr Scholl's has come out with one too. WWould be interested to hear if anyone has tried them as well.

I have had some success with them but they just deaden the pain and are no cure. It is best to have the magnets opposite eadh other. In other words if you have one on the sole of the foot put on directly above it on the instep. Good luck.

I think they're a waste of money.
