Using a TENS Unit to Treat Back Pain

TENS unit can be used to treat back pain simply by applying the TENS electrodes to the area affected and adjusting the settings to relieve the pain. Since all back pain is different, there really is no single best method for using TENS on back pain symptoms. You need to adjust the pulse waves until you find relief. This is how you use TENS for all types of pain.

Here are the simple steps to using  Your TENS machine for back pain:

  1. Apply the electrodes to the area of pain. Place a pad on either side of the source of pain for best results.
  2. Begin the treatment by turning on the machine, starting on the lowest setting.
  3. Adjust the pulse length and frequency. Wait a few seconds and readjust until you find relief from the back pain.
  4. Repeat as necessary, using the machine for about 30 minutes at a time.
