How to Use a TENS Unit for Pain Relief – Ask Doctor Jo

A TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) unit is used to help reduce pain and increase circulation. Basically the vibration of the TENS follows the same pathway as the pain does to the brain and helps cancel it out. Purchase a CUH TENS Unit: http://www.askdoctorjo.com/tens-unit-pain-relief

    Thanks for the explanation, it helped me a lot! I noticed that my device has two electrodes on the same side that do not generate stimulation, are they defective? I read that positive poles have a lower charge and it could be that but I don’t feel anything when I test them alone. Are they supposed to be like this? And can I continue using it anyway?

    Thank you for explaining this🥰

  5. Paloma Healing on August 17, 2022 at 2:07 am

    I have the Solitens SW103-B unit which includes a wrist strap. Does it matter which wrist I wear the strap?

  20. Leif on the Wind on August 17, 2022 at 2:22 am

    Just got one I’m picking it up later on today. I’m hopeful this helps with my chronic leg pain. The other day the cramping was so bad I was writhing in bed. I’m really hoping this will be a good solution; nothing else I’ve tried has worked so far, had this issue over a decade now and no diagnosis

    Can a TENS unit be used effectively as a preventative measure? As with peripheral neuropathy? I.e. at a time when there isn’t any burning or cramping? Or used just when burning and cramping? Fellow TENS users?
