Does anyone know how to place magnets correctly in a elbow wrap?

I have tennis elbow and would like to try some magnetic therapy on it. I have a bunch of small but powerful refrigerator magnets that I would like to wrap against the elbow, but I’m not sure how to space them or which side makes contact with the skin. Is it the side that sticks to the fridge door or the one that is repelled?

thanks in advance to anyone who can shed some light here..

    I can shed some like on this "theory" for you. It’s completely bunk. No one has ever demonstrated ANY effects, positive or negative, of magnets on the health of the human body. The only way a magnet could affect your body is if someone threw it at you, causing injury.

    Magnet therapy is a classic example of people being fooled by the placebo effect. I suggest you read about it here:

    Furthermore, BOTH sides of a magnet will stick to an unmagnetized refrigerator door. Neither will be repelled.

    A refrigerator magnet will not hold 20 sheets of paper on your fridge. It will not penetrate the skin deeply and there is no proof magnets do anything. Hold one to your elbow, let go and watch it drop. Try some Earl Gray tea instead.

    i cant say that magnets really could help your elbow in anyway..

    i theory your blood contains iron in which help carry oxygen in your blood… now if you attrack all the iron into your elbow you may have oxygen deficiency in your brain… thats worst than having a tennis elbow..

    if you still beleive that magnets still have effects on the body.. ask about MRI- Magnetic Resonance Imaging…they have bigger magnets..
