If you’re new to Multi-Stim TENS and EMS therapy, then you are probably uncertain about how to use your new device safely. Like any other therapy or device that you use on your body, you want to be sure that you use it safely and as directed to avoid causing yourself accidental harm. Now, while HiDow TENS and EMS devices are perfectly safe to use, there are precautions that you should take every time you use them. Here are a few tips for safe Multi-Stim TENS and EMS use.
Speak With Your Doctor Before Using a Multi-Stim Device
Any time you plan to start a new treatment, whether muscle and nerve stimulation or any other pain management treatment, you always want to speak with your doctor before starting. Your doctor will have a good idea of your physical condition and can provide you with valuable information, including risks that you specifically may face.
Learn How To Use Your Device and How To Place Electrode Pads Safely
Once you purchase your HiDow Multi Stim TENS + EMS device, the first thing you want to do is get familiar with your device. Understanding where to place electrode pads, how to operate the device, which modes and settings you prefer, and how long to use the device will make for safe Multi-Stim TENS and EMS use. We recommend reading the user manual as well as watching several tutorial videos that we have on our website and Youtube page to see the device in use.
Always Start Small and Work Your Way up as Needed
When you start using your Multi Stim TENS and EMS device, you want to remember to start small. Starting on a low setting and working your way up to more intense settings will let you determine what your threshold and comfort level is. If you jump straight to an intense setting, you run the risk of feeling pain or a sensation that you are not accustomed to. Remember, you can always go to the next level on your device if you feel too comfortable.
Don’t Overdo It
Finally, be sure to use your Multi Stim device conservatively. Some people like to use their devices in 15-minute intervals giving themselves breaks in between. Using your device for extended periods can cause discomfort, pain, or injury due to improper application.
