Well Steve has come through for us again in July, 2009 with another injury and a great opportunity to demonstrate the power of Q magnets to help him recover after injury and get back on the bike sooner.

The first image below is day one after the elbow dislocation, you can just see it beginning to swell.

Ankle update Day 28 by Steve Sommerfeld

May 5th, 2009 No comments

This week I saw Emma twice for physiotherapy, I can hardly believe the progress I made. With physiotherapy and Q magnet treatment I went from two crutches to one crutch to no crutches in 3 days. The first time I saw Emma, she mobilised the joint and pushed me further than I could go and when I walked out I was walking the best I have with just the one crutch.  I had the proper walking movement only I just had to transfer my weight to the crutch as I walked through the stride.


On the second visit I did roughly an hour of constant exercises that Emma gave me and used the theraband as well to passively move my ankle as well as active.  I then went to see Emma in the afternoon and I could move my knee forward 3 more centimetres over my foot than the previous day.  Which I thought was a huge improvement. I have been wearing 5 Q magnets constantly on my ankle as you can see in the photo’s.

Post Ankle Surgery Progress!

April 27th, 2009 No comments

Steve is impressed with the progress of his ankle. Here are some of his comments:

“I haven’t had any painkillers from about 4 days after the surgery”

“I’ve broken legs before and I got back on the bike sooner than expected each time, but not this soon could I hold weight on an ankle after the actual crash and then surgery only 2 weeks ago”.

“The only thing I’ve done differently with this broken ankle is the use of Q-Magnets. It’s really starting to show how well physio and magnets work!”

Broken ankle – Faster fracture healing

April 16th, 2009 No comments

Steve fractured his ankle in 3 places after an accident while practicing a freestyle trick a few weeks ago. Steve had surgery and a titanium (non-magnetic) screw was inserted to hold the ankle stable. We treated his ankle for the first time today. Steve is unable to weight bear and has very limited range in the ankle. We have placed 3 magnets on the ankle to aid swelling reduction, bone healing and pain.

Steven presented with a corked thigh. He had physiotherapy treatment and used the Q magnets and he was back in action in just a week!

You can see the effect of the Q magnets after only a day, already helping that haematoma heal.
