As these ions move through the channels they are able to affect pain signals, muscle contractions and several other processes which our bodies require to function.
This is in direct relation to the nerves that deliver pain signals, where the magnets would be able to effectively reduce or block them. The channels can also be affected through other means such as drugs or electrical impulses.
