No More Ouchies!

They did lots of stuff to me when I was in physical therapy for my back, but I was mostly in too much pain or drugged up to understand any of it! Now I know that “TENS” is the short form for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation. You can actually purchase TENS Units, Muscle Stimulators, and Ultrasound Units for pain relief and rehabilitation. I had no idea! Once they'd decided surgery was the way to go for my back, they didn't do much as far as me having to do exercises to try and help my pain. They just strapped me into traction for a while a few mornings a week, and did the ultrasound on the muscles at the very bottom of my back (read: butt cheek!).

It's amazing the results I now read they can achieve with the LG-TEC Dual Combo TENS Unit and Muscle Stimulator. It looks like a very tame octopus, but is a combination unit providing the TENS Pain Relief and the Muscle Stimulator to increase muscle tone and assist in muscle pain rehabilition.
