I want a TENS unit! I used one at PT and it was wonderful. You can pick up a cheap one for around $30. I'm saving up for one.

I have had one for three years. They showed me how to use it at PT. I love mine.🙏🌼

I love mine too. I recommend getting a physical therapist to show you the best pad placement for your pain.

LOVE mine. Can't imagine going back to the life without it. I borrowed one from my chiropractor before I bought mine. My chiropractor is super sweet, let me use it for 6 months. Just used mine right before this post.

I use a Tens machine and it only helps me a little. It just depends on where the pain is whether or not it works.

I find it works when it is on but relief is short lived after it is off.

I have a TENS unit that my Pain doctor gave me, I use it but, the being pain free is short lived. I guess it would depend on where your pain is and how severe it really is as to weather it will work for you.
