Clinical Trial Shows Magnets Provide Pain Relief from Myofascial Trigger Points.

The Physical Therapy department at Armstrong Atlantic State University conducted a Randomised Clinical Trial using static magnets on myofascial trigger point pain. The 2004 study was part of the student capstone project and supervised by professors of the physical therapy department. Although the study wasn’t published, the results were presented at the Bioelectromagnetics Society annual meeting.

 

A 1997 clinical trial by Vallbona, showed a significant benefit to patients suffering post-polio pain using a flexible rubber magnet with concentric rings in alternating poles. The study at Armstrong involved 30 patients and tested the same magnets as the Vallbona study, but on a more general population.

Static magnets providing hope for post-polio syndrome pain sufferers.

While polio may have been eliminated in the industrialised world, there are still thousands of post-polio sufferers living with the after effects of chronic pain. Polio Australia has been established specifically for post-polio survivors and is an excellent resource.

 

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 post-polio pain.
