Feel Good Knees

The difference between the Bioflow Feel Good Knees Review system and other magnets you can easily buy is twofold. First, the magnetic unit (called CRP) is 20-30 times as strong as other therapy magnets, and second, it has a patented pole-switching design. There's one more thing: they come with a 90-day trial, so you can try it during at least two periods to see whether it does what you want, and get a refund if it doesn't suit. According to Carmen Green, M.D., a pain specialist at the University of Michigan's Health System Center for Interventional Pain Medicine, as many as one-fifth to one-third of Americans live with some form of chronic pain (Gazella, 2005). Let's say there are about 300 million people living in the United States right now, that means that as many as ninety-nine million people may be experiencing physical pain, many on an ongoing basis. Why so many? And why do the numbers seem to be increasing? A few reasons come to mind. One, on average we are living longer. Conditions that used to result in death are now more treatable, extending our lifetimes. With increased longevity may come chronic pain related to these conditions or simply to the aging process. Another reason for the increase in our pain is the increase in obesity in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), as of 2009 only two states had an obesity rate of less than 20%: the District of Columbia and Colorado (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2009). The CDC reports that obesity may lead to diseases that may include chronic pain. With chronic pain intruding on so many millions of lives, you might imagine that the practice of medicine has kept up with these trends, and that a patient experiencing moderate to severe pain on a daily basis might have an array of effective, cost-efficient choices in care to assist in enhancing quality of life and restoring a desired level of activity and function to the patient's life. There are a growing number of specialists in the effective treatment of pain, including medical doctors and osteopathic physicians who complete specialized education and certification in this area.
