Professional athlete shares 7 year journey with Q magnets

Over the years we have received many endorsements from famous athletes and health professionals around the world. This well considered feedback from Nick Kenny would have to be one of the most significant for three reasons. Nick…

  1. Is a professional when it comes to musculoskeletal health AND was a professional Rugby League player for 9 years.
  2. Played the toughest of sports and supplemented his rehab with Q magnets.
  3. As a health professional has observed the benefits of Q magnets on other players around him and not just himself.

 

How long do I need to wear Q magnets before they begin to work?

Response times will vary depending on the condition being treated. The main theories for how Q magnets work are…

  1. Dampening down over active nerves (C-fibres), which may take effect in minutes to assist with the temporary relief of minor aches and pains.
  2. Promoting healing, which may allow you to get back to your favourite physical activities sooner.

 

Using Q magnets to Help Recover from Minor Hamstring Strain

Hamstring strains are one of the athlete’s worst nightmares. A typical hamstring strain can sideline an athlete for 2-4 weeks and even up to 3-6 months. In addition the pain and fear avoidance of using the muscle can prevent even modest training during rehabilitation. Fast recovery is the goal!

The hamstring comprises four muscles, with the origin at the ischial tuberosity (pelvis) and insertion at the knee. There are also five tendons joining muscle and bone.

A hamstring strain can occur anywhere along these muscles and tendons and often at the muscular tendenous junction. Typical treatment might include rest, ice, electrotherapy, stretches, manual therapy and advice to prevent recurrence. For an in-depth review of hamstring strains, see this physiotherapy site.

DISCLAIMER:
The type of magnet used is this study is not a Q magnet.
The safety and effectiveness of Q magnets has not been established in the treatment of tendonitis.

 

Tendons are a tough tissue that attach muscles to bone. Tendonitis or tendinopathy is a condition that progresses with tiny tears on the tendon resulting in pain and swelling. Simple and effective treatments that can speed up the healing and offer natural pain relief are extremely valuable to athletes and anyone suffering from the condition.

Nicole presented on 13th April 2012, one day after a Grade III medial head gastroc stain while playing squash.

On the following day (14th April), Nicole attached two QF20-5 Q magnets with sports tape, one directly over the strain and another over the acupuncture point UB57.

Two days later on 16th April, we took the following photos showing a clear effect directly under where the magnets were placed.
