Because magnetic field therapy
allows athletes to stay healthy with a minimum amount of time, administration, and expense (it can be used while the athlete is practicing or even competing), trainers and medical personnel would do well to investigate its potential use in their programs.

Magnetic field therapy is a noninvasive health promoting modality which has been used since ancient times.
Since the experiences of pain and power are different manifestations of well-being, which evolve through an individual's mutual process with the environment, the individual's choice of strategies to change pain and power must take into account different environmental factors such as magnetic field therapy.
This study explored the potential of magnetic field therapy as a nursing intervention, a manifestation of the environmental energy field, within the context of this human-environment patterning process.
Davis and Rawls' (1974) theory of magnetic fields provided the rationale for the magnetic field therapy.
Kim and Lee (1994) studied the relation between magnetic field therapy and pain in 23 individuals with primary dysmenorrhea who were randomly assigned to either a magnetic group ([n.
