Q Magnets Case Study Published in the Medical Acupuncture Journal

May 8, 2022 | Acupuncture, Magnetic Therapy, Magnetic therapy research, Research

Medical acupuncturists are experts at identifying and accurately locating the morphological structures to be targeted. Quadrapolar, or Q Magnets produce an optimised field and provide the acupuncturist with an additional modality to target these structures that is safe, specific, simple to use and provides a 24/7 application option.

new study by a veteran acupuncturist shows the true potential of optimized multipolar magnets in acupuncture:

“..Climbing stairs required 1 step at a time to wait for the pain to subside. Countless consultations with medical specialists that included, physical therapy, acupuncture, pain medication, and other rehabilitation techniques had given him no benefit.

Then I tried magnets. Two octapolar magnets were fastened on the anterior and posterior knee area with adhesive tape. The treatment duration was ∼24 hours. Dramatic results occurred; his pain was completely absent and his limp resolved. His range of motion was normal. This patient could practically run up and down stairs without pain or spasms.

It is now 7 months post-treatment without any signs of relapsing. He continues to ambulate normally and has discontinued all pain medication. The 2 magnets I used, each had a penetration of 35 mm over 1.4 inches and were octapolar (Octapolar OF50-3, Q Magnets..)”

The author, Richard C. Niemtzow, M.D., Ph.D., M.P.H., is a retired USAF colonel and was the first full-time physician acupuncturist in the US Armed Forces.

Needless to say, we’re thrilled that medical acupuncturists are investigating the potential of Q Magnets in acupuncture and pain relief.

In 2017, Dr. Niemtzow published a ground-breaking article – “Acupuncture and Magnets: Is There a Clinical Role?

From our side at Q Magnets, we’ve been working with neurologists, physiotherapists and acupuncturists in devising standard magnet placements and selections based on the area of pain on our website’s How-to-use section.

We’re truly thankful to acupuncturists and experts such as Dr. Niemtzow who in this case found a new placement for knee pain which is not a standard placement and one that we would not have recommended, or even thought of!

But then, we don’t have all the answers and in particular acupuncturists have a habit of using very different placements at times and with great effect.

What we do best, is provide the most optimised and effective static magnet devices that are patient friendly and get results for the treating practitioner in around 80% of cases.

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...
