Response times will vary depending on the condition being treated. The main theories for how Q magnets work are…
- Dampening down over active nerves (C-fibres), which may take effect in minutes to assist with the temporary relief of minor aches and pains.
- Promoting healing, which may allow you to get back to your favourite physical activities sooner.
So for back pain, the correct positioning of the larger Q magnets may result in the localized temporary relief of pain in a matter of minutes. Such as this documented case of John. Even if you do notice an immediate improvement, it may be best to sleep with your Q magnets in place and gauge how you feel upon waking. If you still notice significantly less pain, take careful note of the correct placement. If you notice little or no change, it may take a bit of trial and error in modifying the placement positions.

“The delivery of static magnetic fields through a magnetized device directly applied to a pain trigger point or to a localized painful area results in significant relief of pain within a short period of time (less than 45 minutes in our study) and with no apparent side effects. Based on the results of this study and reports in the literature of the effect on people with arthritis, it appears that magnetic fields may be useful in the management of pain in individuals with other types of impairments that are commonly treated in primary care settings.”

Since Q magnets seem to have a more subtle and sustained effect, they should be worn constantly during times of recovery from minor aches and pains to maintain the benefit. Over time, they can be removed and if the pain returns, reapply the magnets until you notice you are able to gradually wean them off.
For minor sprains and strains or even a bruise, it may be best to wear your Q magnets 24/7 for the duration of the injury. This could be days as with this finger sprain, or around 10 days as shown in this case study on a muscle strain. Also, see more details and explanation of Q magnet application for bruises.
Most of the published research on the effects of static magnets on tissue healing in animals used a 24/7 application treatment protocol, such as this study on cartilage damage in rabbits and this one on torn tendons in dogs.
