    Default How many here use a Ten ' s machine for treatment?

    I've recently began to use a portable Ten ' s machine for treatment of chronic pain and have experienced some relief. Mine is made by Omron and also incorporates heat in the attachable pads. Am I alone here in using this therapy?

    I have a Zytec from multiple knee surgeries. When I need it, I need it. Typically after a day of hiking/hunting. If you're dealing with a lot of inflammation, use it in conjunction with a bag of crushed ice.
    Be careful what you say, some may take it the wrong way.

    How do you mean in conjunction? Do you take the crushed ice bag wrap it in a towel and put it on top of the pads?

    Yep. Takes down swelling very well. It is important your unit is set up for pain relief instead of stimulation. I don't know if yours has variable settings.

    I have an old unit from active chiro days. Does TENS, but also Russian, microcurrent, and interferential current. The variable IFC (interferential) and H-wave work the best for me, personally.

    The IFC was also beneficial as a chiro. People come in with to much spasm to crack the joint, I could put IFC pads in an X pattern surrounding the hot disc, plop a hot pack over it for 10 minutes, then it would adjust fine.
    Clear mind, clear movement. Mastery of the Arts is mastery over the Self. That in this moment, this motion, the thoughts, memories, impulses and passions that cloud the mind must yield to the clarity of purpose, and purity of motion.

    Based on that, I took a look at my unit. It's a Zynex IFC, not TENS.
