In January, 2012 I purchased the lower back pain Q magnet set, hoping it would help my SIJ pain. I had suffered chronic SIJ pain for 2 ½ years and had been through an SIJ spinal fusion and had numerous cortisone injections with little effect.
My spine specialist said the MRI confirmed the pain was referred from my right SIJ and that hopefully in a few years it would resolve, but in the mean time I had little pain relief. Unfortunately the QF28-6 magnets were not providing any relief even though I persisted for four weeks and visited a local physiotherapist to assist with the correct placement.
I discussed this with James at Neuromagnetics Australia and he suggested it might be worth trialling the OF50-3 which being 5cm round was large enough to capture the SIJ joint. As soon as I put it on, I could feel the difference and was able to move more freely.
When I take the magnet off for awhile, I get a real painful aching in the SIJ area. When I put it back on, my skin tingles at first, then it seems to dull the aching. It doesn’t completely take away the pain but it stops aching in the area, which helps me.
Hopefully my chronic pain will correct itself over time, but for now I am thankful that I can manage my pain to at least make it bearable with a simple therapy with no side effects.
