TENS Units

Posted by bustrbrwn22 @bustrbrwn22, Aug 29, 2020

Does anyone recommend a portable, rechargable TENS unit for pain management? The easier to use the better, trying to go to the bathroom a dozen times a night and adjusting all the sticky nodes is very frustrating, too. I had one that helped with my sciatica pain but was too cumbersome to continue using and it wore out quite quicky.

@bustrbrwn22 Hi I have a Tens Unit and it does relieve pain from tight muscles and the sciatica yes I just had sciatica and my chiropractor used a Tens Unit on me I also bought my last one from Amazon not difficult at all to use directions come with it previously had one for over 10 yrs it wore out so new one I love it after applying the electrodes ice or heat on top

Thanks for responding. Can you walk around with it (it’s hard to keep disconnecting at night when trying to sleep)? Could you provide the model and cost and where you stick the electrodes? Mine would be on my upper right buttocks and lower hamstring. Wish I could do bottom of feet at same time. Thanks so much!

@busterbrown My Tens unit is from Amazon Model numberAS1080. I apply me be on upper and lower back other times buttocks and thigh the instructions also have lower leg and feet on the outside and inside of foot and ankle. It didn't cost alot but works really well It's by KEDSUM. I walk around with it sometime

@lioness I now have 2 of the TENS unit you recommended. One as a backup and if I’m desperate one to wear on feet and one for rest of sciatica. Still dangerous at night if I go
To bathroom.

G'morning – I have an adjustable tens unit. I Like it very much and it helps me with pain. I bought it on Amazon for $64.95. This is the brief description:
TENS Unit and EMS Combination Muscle Stimulator with 2 Channels, 12 Modes for Pain Management for Back, Neck, Arms, Legs, Abs, and Muscle Rehabilitation. You can use it for 20 minutes or an additional 10 minutes up to 60 minutes. The instructions coming with it are clear and I find it easy to use. Good Luck.

Yes I’d like to hear more about what an EMS stimulator does.

I probably am using my TENS wrong then. I crank it up to as high of an electric jolt as I can stand on that particular day. I thought the idea was to distract you from the pain you were feeling by getting stimulated by something even more painful. Please let me know if I’m using it wrong
