Smile Magnetic Blanket... Experiences?

My horse has minor back issues. He isn't built like a million bucks which causes him to have a sore lower back. We get him injected once a year which lasts the entire year. I read somewhere that the magnetic blanket helps relieve muscle soreness? What are your opinions/experiences on the blanket?

Anything is appreciated!

I don't have personal experience with it, but some people I fequently show with use one on their older gelding. I asked what it was during fair whenthey were loading him to take him home, since it looked "meshy". They told me that since he's constantly needing the chiropractor out to adjust his back, during visits it helps him just as much as shots would (for the sore muscles caused by his one or two vertebre that pop out of place frequently.
Before they figured out that it was his back, he was constantly naughty at shows (but was fine with slower work at home), bucking, rearing, and overall having a nasty attitude. After a fee weeks after they got him they realised and (from what I understand) talked to their vet and chiropractor about it, they got him a magnetic blanket for when he was stalled after shows and such. I've seen him improve -extremely- the past year (show season) that he's had the blanket for. He's still rather hot, but never has a fit before going in or during a class (we all show games).
I was actually rather surprised, and I'm pretty sure if I looked I'd he appalled at the cost, but I'm sure it's much more cost effective (since it works for him) as opposed to injections or a chiropractor visit every two weeks or so. I think he now only needs a chiro about every two-three months and is peachy-keen still showing.
