Pain Relief From Minor Aches and Pains and Getting Back to Your Sport Sooner…

May 2, 2013 | Magnetic Therapy, Protocols, Research, Soft Tissue Injuries

Injuries are the inevitable consequence of athletes pushing their bodies to breaking point. One of the easiest forms of pain relief is popping a pill and Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) such as Advil, Aleve, Brufen, Celebrex, Naprosyn and Nurofen are very common.

PAIN RELIEF AT A COST – NSAIDs

But, did you know; that along with pain relief can come a weakening of the injured area and an increased risk of re-injury? One study by Cohen, DB et al, (Indomethacin and celecoxib impair rotator cuff tendon‐to‐bone healing; Am J Sports Med 2006) found that in the group taking NSAIDs, 8% of tendons completely failed to heal with significant decreases in tensile strength and collagen organisation in the remainder. Aside from poor tissue healing, other studies have found delayed fracture healing.

This is aside from the more well-known side effects from NSAIDs such as damage to the digestive system, liver and kidneys.

A study published in June, 2012 investigated the effects of a static magnetic field on a tendon injury in dogs and found the experimental group had reduced inflammatory cells and increased blood vessel proliferation and collagen formation as compared to the control group. Clinically, after 30 days, it was observed that the wound healing and physical activity of the experimental dogs were better than the control group. The experimental group was also able to weight bear after 30 days. The devices used in the study were not Q Magnets, but the results are consistent with many different types of magnetic fields.

Another study by Costantino et al (2007), studied 40 patients with wrist fractures after applying a Quadrapolar magnetic array directly over the fracture in the plaster cast of the subjects.  Resulting in bone callus formation that produced a 35% improvement in healing rates compared to ‘standard’ time.

Q Magnets are a one-off purchase, should last for many years and can be used over and over again.

Don’t just take our word for it, listen to Simon Black, one of the all time great AFL players and genuine person. Simon was introduced to Q Magnets through his medical team and until we interviewed him, we had no idea how much he used and loved them. He said they were integral in his recovery routine and in extending his playing career. Listen to the brief talk by clicking on the image below.

Carlin Isles is a speed sensation and Olympian for the USA Rugby team in Rio. You can see in the video below how his sports trainer has applied the Q Magnets to his forearm, by gluing them into the brace he is wearing. This is a convenient way to wear your Q Magnets without the need for adhesive tape, learn how to in this brief video clip. Here is what Carlin had to say; “Q Magnets, are a great tool man”

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...

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...
