    Hi there,

    I would like to know what PF's thoughts are on copper bracelets for the treatment of arthritic pain?

    The lady at the top of the magnetic bracelet sales chain is said to own a huge house on the water in my part of the world, so they are certainly easing her pain. I doubt if anyone else benefits much, or if she even wears them.

    They don't work and it's not medically advised to use them:

    That's a nice way to cap the thread.
