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.

Back pain may respond very quickly to correct Q Magnet placement.

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.”
Vallbona et al. (1997). Response of Pain to Static Magnetic Fields in Postpolio Patients: A Double Blind Study. Arch Phys Med Rehabil. 1997 Nov;78(11):1200-3. PMID; doi.

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 magnet therapy 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.

Combining TENS and Q Magnets

TENS machines are thought to work by activating the fast-conducting myelinated nerves, such as A-Beta fibres and closing the Pain-Gate. Whereas Q magnets mainly inhibit the slow-conducting unmyelinated nerves, such as C-fibres. Combining the two modalities, can...

According to Dr Goiz, the biomagnetic pairing technique involves using pairs of bipolar magnets to balance pH, improve the immune system and overcome disease. Studies that show positive benefits for pain relief are achieved when multipolar magnets such as Q Magnets are specifically placed on areas such as trigger points and nerve connections.

Why magnet design matters? Learning from Cow Magnets

Magnetic materials are attracted to field gradients and NOT to a uniform or what physicists call a homogeneous field. This is well illustrated with the cow magnet. Cow magnets are used by cattle farmers to safely collect any metal objects such as nails or barbed wire their animal might ingest. Because the cow magnet produces a field gradient along the length of its shaft, metal objects will neatly stick to its sides. This is how it works...
