Targeting Shoulder Pain With TENS

Are experiencing chronic shoulder pain? Shoulder pain can be some of the most painful and most uncomfortable pains to experience because it can limit the range of motion of your shoulder. What’s more, every time that you move your arm, you will feel discomfort and pain in your shoulder. There are two main types of shoulder pains that you can target with TENS and EMS multi-stim devices- muscle pains and joint pains. While each of these pains is uncomfortable in their own right, HiDow makes targeting shoulder pain with TENS easy. Here’s how.

Electrode Pad Placement for Treating Shoulder Pain

When using TENS to target shoulder pain, electrode pad placement is everything. Depending on the multi-stim device that you are using, you will have 2 or 4 electrode pads. If you use a robust device such as the Pro Touch 6-12, you will have up to 6 receivers to use. This unit is ideal for families who rely on multi-stim because multiple people can use the device at the same time, but I digress. You will want to place electrode diagonally across from each other for maximum effect regardless of whether you have joint or muscle pain.

For Treating Rotator Cuff and Shoulder Joint Pain

When it comes to treating shoulder pain located on the rotator cuff or in the joints, it’s best to target shoulder pain with TENS by placing the electrode pads on the front and back of the shoulder. This placement will target the pain directly while avoiding the muscles around your shoulder.

For Treating Shoulder Muscle Pains

For treating muscle pains around the shoulder, it’s best to place electrode pads on top of the shoulder where the trapezius (traps) muscle is located. Place the electrode pads diagonally across from each other for the most effective stimulation.

Adjust the Intensity of Your Multi-Stim TENS + EMS Device

As you use your multi-stim device to target shoulder pain with TENS, you’ll want to start on the lowest intensity stimulation and work your way up to an intensity that feels comfortable while still alleviating pain the most effectively. You will notice that after a few minutes of muscle stimulation, you will become used to the sensation of the device so working your way up slowly is crucial for targeting shoulder pain with TENS.
