TENS Unit Pads

Increasingly, people are turning to an innovative therapy that relieves muscle aches anywhere in the body, including common sources of pain like arms, hips, and lower back. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, or TENS unit pads — also known as electrodes — discharge safe electrical pulses to the muscles, causing the targeted muscles to contract and relax. Often, the sensation is compared to a deep tissue massage.

Are you one of the million people who suffer from muscle aches? You’re not alone. A National Institutes of Health study revealed that pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease, and cancer combined. Much of this epidemic of pain is a result of overuse, strain, and injury.

For optimal use, follow these five simple guidelines

1. Locate the exact pathway of your pain and outline its most tender areas.
2. Always use two TENS pads rather than just one.
3. Adjust the course of the electrical pulses when you change the distance between the two TENS pads.
4. Place the TENS pads in any of the following directions: angulated, vertical, or horizontal.
5. Do not allow the TENS unit pads to come in contact with one another. It’s advisable to keep them one inch apart. Note: The effectiveness decreases when the distance between the two pads increases.
