Q magnets For Improving Athletic Performance

Serious athletes are used to high intensity training, it goes with the territory. However, over exertion and/or accumulative fatigue can result in trauma through sprains, strains, fractures and bruising.

Q magnets are potentially a simple and safe therapy option for athletes and should be on-hand when the need arises. Here we explain how to use Q magnets for minor strains and sprains and other injuries and the evidence.

Q magnet therapy for a shin bruise with a child.

Melissa hit her shin bone on a cage while running in the dark. There was tears and it was extremely painful. A few minutes after applying the large Q magnet the pain had eased and the next day there was hardly a sign of the bruise.

Q magnets are great therapy for children and most accidents around the house. They work great with ice as well, there was no call for over the counter pain medication at all.
