For many chronic pain sufferers, treatment can be challenging. There is no one-size-fits-all approach and insurance coverage can be non-existent or limited. This is why so many sufferers find pain relief by using a portable, home TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) unit. A TENS unit works by sending out tiny electrical pulses through gel electrode pads placed on your skin. The pulses feel like a pain-free, pleasant vibration. As your body begins to receive the pulses sent out by the unit, it turns off your body’s ability to feel the pain signals as they are being sent to your brain and “tricks” the brain into thinking there is no pain….INSTANT RELIEF!
Choosing the right size and type of electrode pad is important to ensure maximum pain relief. If you need assistance, a representative from the Pain Care Outlet Care Team can help you with this process at 1-800-945-0302 or visit our website for additional information and electrode pad options. The recommended usage for a package of electrode pads is 10-12 applications.
It is normal for your electrode pads to become less sticky after too many uses. One of the most common reasons that electrode pads lose their stickiness is because of unwanted debris, dirt or oils from your skin. Naturally, these things adhere to the electrode pads just as they would adhere to a piece of scotch tape, leaving less gel to adhere to your skin. To prevent this, always clean your TENS electrode pads after each application with a moist cloth, place them back in their sealable packaging and store away from direct light or other heating elements. Please ensure the TENS unit is powered to the OFF position and unplugged prior to cleaning your electrode pads.
