TENS/EMS HOME USE UNITS
We offer different pain management products to assist with recovery and promote pain relief. TENS is a great alternative to medication for chronic or acute pain. TENS can be used during labor or following surgery to reduce the intensity of pain. It is ideal for people with extremity pain and muscle weakness. Some units are combination TENS and EMS. TENS can provide pain relief, while EMS can assist with the strengthening of weak muscles. Many athletes recovering from injury or post surgical clients also use this unit to facilitate their strengthening program. TENS is also used in conjunction with physical therapy to reduce pain with prescribed exercise.
