An investigation was conducted, the objective of which was to study the thermographic evaluation of the efficiency of magnetic therapy for osteoarthritis (OA). The investigation has indicated that that the inclusion of magnetic therapy in the combination therapy of knee OA sig-nificantly enhances the efficiency of treatment, as shown by thermographic findings.
