I have osteoarthritis and I can honestly say it is of no use to me at all.

I do however think that it varies from person to person and all you can do is try for yourself.

I use one for sciatica and find it helps so much, sorry I don't know if they help with bone ailments , good luck

Oops sorry meant to add I do not use mine for arthritis though.

I have one that use regularly storynanny I find it amazing and I much prefer it to taking strong pain killers. They do take a little bit of getting used to but I would definitely recommend giving it a try.

Tried one a few years ago, but sent it back, hated the vibrating.

I have one but it didn't help my Arthritis at all but other people have found them helpful.

Anyone ever tried one of these machines for moderate knee arthritis?
