I am a chronic pain patient suffering from surgical adhesions and fused organs. I have been searching for a non-narcotic solution for decades. I recently discovered TENS units work but I wanted a unit I could use in the office without drawing attention. This unit is perfect. What’s even better is that it will help me go off narcotic pain meds.
This works well and does help with some of my neck pain. It is great to use in between chiropractor visits to maybe spread them out more as a cost savings. The only reason why I didn't give it a 5 is because I found the pads to lose their stickiness sooner than I would have hoped. They say they can be rinsed, but even after doing that, it didn't get any of the stickiness back.
I was very impressed with the power of this small product, for it's size, and only running on batteries. I would highly recommend this unit for those who do not have major issues, and just need a good dose of therapy.
This is my second one I've purchased. I ruined the first one, after 7 months, by falling asleep wearing it too many times, which caused the small cord to tangle, knot and tear. It's a handy little unit for relaxation and short-term pain reduction.
We never heard of this till our nephew talked about it. I ordered one for my husband. He had plantars fasciitis and within 2 days it was gone. His neck has been pain full and this is giving him relief. For the money you cant go wrong. Our daughter bought one for her migraines. She uses it as soon as she feels one starting and it prevents it from turning into a full migraine.
I like the convenience of the unit. But, the levels of operation are inconsintent. Plus, the new pads don't stay adherent/sticky long. Maybe a few uses. It's a nice compact unit but I wish it was more effective and reliable.
