Guidelines for the treatment of osteoarthritis are changing

 

The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners have developed new guidelines for the treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee and hip.

The statistics were showing that too many hip and knee replacements procedures were not helping patients and many were simply unnecessary. Exercise is now the treatment of choice for osteoarthritis, ahead of medications and surgery.

 

The irrational and remarkable bias against the therapeutic use of static magnets

 

The bias against the therapeutic use of static magnets in society is as irrational as it is remarkable.

An article titled – “What are the best methods to help reduce knee pain” was published in The Australian on September 28, 2018 and was republished from the The Times of UK. The author, Peta Bee claimed that magnets “work by increasing the circulation of iron in the blood”. This description is comical and is completely contradicted by published research.

Twice we attempted to post a comment, not our words, but quoting a published Harvard Medical School clinical trial using static magnets for knee pain and twice the comment post was denied publication. You could call this a classic example of astroturfing, where vested interests promote agendas.

From dog to knee to a son’s ankle; the many uses of Q magnets

My animal physiotherapist gave me a Q magnet to try on my dog’s paw. It worked, so I thought I’d buy some more for me and my dogs. I used the new magnets on my knee which I had twisted playing hockey. Overnight I wore the magnet and the next day my knee was so much better and no pain. Tried it again the following night and now I am pain free. My son also swears that it has helped with his ankle which he twisted badly during a game of soccer.

The concern for me was the cost, but I have used them daily for my dog and for myself when needed. They are simple to use and great for ridding of pain

Magnets for knee pain relief

A friend told me about Q magnets after he tried them and swore by them in providing instant pain relief.

I was sceptical that magnets would be effective but was suffering from such unbearable knee pain that I was desperate to try anything to ease the pain.

I have osteoarthritis in the knee and have been wearing the magnets every day since purchasing them about three weeks ago.

Knee Pain – Acupuncture, Low Level Laser and Q magnets pain relief

 

Acupuncture is a popular complementary therapy for knee pain, however a recent study did not recommend acupuncture for chronic knee pain in patients over 50 years. In this article we review the research and show how acupuncture can be combined synergistically with Q magnet therapy as a supplementary treatment for even better pain relief (see references below).

 

We have had feedback from many people claiming Q magnets complement acupuncture for the relief of pain from knee osteoarthritis.
