Not sure how to use TENS therapy for elbow pain relief? Here’s how!
TENS Placement and Wraps for Elbow Pain Relief
When it comes to pain management around the elbow, TENS electrode placement is quite simple. When using two electrode pads, you will want to place one electrode above the elbow on the tricep while placing the other electrode pad below the elbow. If you are using a TENS device with multiple channels where you can use four electrode pads you will place the electrodes in the same spot, 2-by-2. For the best results, you will likely need to place electrode pads from the same channel diagonally across from each other.
How Often Can You Use TENS Therapy for Elbow Pain
Because TENS therapy is a drug-free method for elbow pain relief you are not limited by how much you can use the device. It is recommended that you use the device in 15-minute increments for about 45 minutes to an hour before giving yourself a break from the device. You can use TENS therapy for elbow pain relief daily if needed. As always though, this is not medical advice and it is always recommended that you speak with your doctor when discussing how to best treat your pain.
