Send electrical stimulation to muscle or area causing you pain.
Clear off any lotion and apply electrodes to the area symmetrically.
Set the intensity – start low.
Do not use on your neck, face, jaw or head.
Can use for pains below the neck, lower extremities, back, knees, arms, legs
You can use over and over again but you will eventually have to replace the pads.
Similarly to the effect you have when you rub your elbow after you bang it – you are intercepting the brain signals from the brain, with the Tens machine stimulates the other nerves to overwhelm the brain and the sensation of pain.
Can use 2 to 5 times a day but don’t go over 30 minutes.
Pregnant women, those with serious heart conditions and those with pacemakers should not use it.
