Tens Unit Electrode Placement: What You Should Know?
Do you experience muscle pain? It’s possible that the pain was caused by an injury, overuse or strain. Today, a lot of Americans turn to TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) Unit Therapy to relieve their muscle pain in the hips, lower back, and arms.
Using a TENS Unit in the home may be a part of the complete treatment program recommended by a physical therapist, a chiropractor or a physician. These professionals know the musculoskeletal system as well as how to effectively place the pads onto the skin for pain relief.
Placing the electrodes in the proper area is the first step to achieving the most benefit from your TENS or EMS unit. Use this TENS unit placement chart as a handy reference to guide you when placing your TENS unit electrodes on your body during pain relief treatments. If you consult with a medical professional about using your TENS unit, they will likely be able to assist you further in determining the best place to put your electrodes for your specific pain symptoms.
