Got Pain? Why I Love My TENS Unit for Chronic Pain
Have you ever tried a TENS Unit for chronic pain? I actually travel with one because this little machine has made such a huge difference in my life and I’m excited to tell you why. If you struggle with any type of pain, then you might want to check this out.
One thing that I am quite familiar with (unfortunately!) is back pain! It comes and goes, but for me, it is the same stubborn groups of muscles that seem to act up. When things get really bad, I go to the Chiropractor and he will adjust me and then he hooks me up to a pulse machine. I used to do this quite often until his sweet little office assistant let me know that the VERY SAME pulse machines are available for consumers and can be purchased for LESS than the price of one office visit.
Which is why that I’m so happy to say that since I purchased my first TENS unit, I haven’t been back to the Chiropractor. Not once.
One thing that I love about these little units is the size! They fit to easily in a travel bag, and I almost always take them with me when I travel because they come in so handy if my pain flairs up. Quite often at night I will use my TENS unit while I sit in bed and read.
What Type of Pain?
This handy little gadget doesn’t just work on back pain. I’ve also seen great results using it for some adhesion issues that I have (as the result of c-section scaring) and we’ve used in our family for all kinds of issues. I highly recommend you read the Amazon reviews on this TENS unit to see how all kinds of people are using these machines to relieve their pain.
I use this a few times a week (or consistently when my muscles are really tight). For me, it works especially great on neck and shoulder muscles and I find the process very relaxing. If you order it, you might also want to order some replacement pads, as those tend to loose the “stick” and I have to change them about once a month (once every two weeks if I am using it a lot).
