I have had chronic back issues for a number of years now. They stem from a manual handling injury but were exasperated by the nature of my job, i.e. sat at a desk all day. I do regular stretches and exercises and have seen a chiropractor in the past, but the problem persists. I too have been advised of the benefits of a TENS system and I have decided to give it a try. But looking around online on www.used.forsale/tens-unit
at all the TENS units that are available for sale made me feel dizzy! There are that many different brands and models at a range of differing prices. It is hard to know which one to go for. Can anybody recommend a particular model from experience? Any that I should avoid? Thanks in advance for any pointers!
One basic caveat: in placing a pair of elecrodes from the same lead, do not place the electrodes so that they are on opposite te sides if the spine. Place both paired electrodes from a single lead on the same side of the spinal column.
Although TENS units use low voltage batteries, there is concern about the electromagnetic transfer through the spinal cord if paired electrodes from a single lead are placed on opposing sides of the spinal column.
Thanks for this advice by the way Seashell.
