Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation

TENS is great. My daughter used it for a few months, and it fixed whatever was wrong. Cost me $90 or so. And if you check Amazon, they have several units at a range of prices. Also, they have electronic pads available.

I got one for $40 or so and it worked well for a while. Connectors wore out and I got another. It does help with back pain and muscle relief.

Same model Tom?

The best part of chiro was the moist heat pad with the Tens machine pads running underneath. 10 minutes of that and my lower back was relaxed and happy.

The model that my favorite chiro used was about the size of a dictionary, and the one my alternate chiro had was the size of a stereo receiver. Both plugged into the wall. Perhaps these are just ancient machines, but they ran many times a day for decades. How do you compare the models? Do the home units put out the same voltage, amperage, waveforms as the pro models? Come on, Icy Hot is selling one in a bandage for like $19 at Walmart. They've got that basketball guy doing the TV ads for it.
