    I had not heard of it, so did some searching.....and indeed did find one website that advocates it (...and after all, if its on the internet, we all know it must be true) .... however they called osteomyelitis:
    (source)...someone needs to tell that that osteomyelitis is actually a serious INFECTION. Those using this technique should be treated with the contempt they deserve. There is not a shread of evidence or even a sound rationale based on pathophysiology for its use in osteomyelitis.

    No sweat. I've got some arnica that I diluted to 10^26 in the cupboard I can lend you. Never trust those magnets mate.
