My pain management doctor prescribed a TENS vest to control pain due to degenerative disk disease and herniated discs.  I took the Rx to a physical therapist and got one of those EMPI 'weight lifting belts'.  I'm sure these are great for lumbar problems, but it can't reach the bad disk areas in my cervical and thoracic areas.  The PT says she has never heard of a TENS vest.
I know I have seen people talk about vests on this website.  Can someone PLEASE provide me with a manufacturer name to share with my PT?

Sorry I can't give the name of one, but call a Physical Therapist Office and they should be able to tell you how to get to a manufacturer. Mine talked about that too, but I didn't have to get one because I had to wear a back brace and you couldn't do both.

Good luck!
