Once you know where the affected area is, you can determine the best way to place the electrode pads. There are three main ways that you can place electrodes: horizontally, vertically, and diagonally from each other. Horizontal & Diagonal – when the pain is spread out over a large area such as your back or across your mid-section, you can place pads above and below the affected area.

Vertical – when the pain is located across a small surface area such as on the back of your arm or around the elbow, you can place the electrode pads parallel across from each other.
