TENS PAIN RELIEF FOR KNEE PAIN

Knee pain can result from many different conditions. For example:-Traumatic injury, Post surgery, Muscle strain, Tendonitis

A TENS machine can be an effective way to manage the pain.

Settings

Pulse Rate The Pulse Rate is the number of electrical pulses you will feel per second. The frequency is measured in Hertz (Hz). Higher pulse rates are generally used for immediate blocking of acute pain. Lower pulse rates are used for endorphine stimulation to provide extended pain relief.

Pulse Width The pulse width is the length of time each pulse lasts. It’s measured in extremely small intervals called microseconds µs (1000ths of a second)

Suggested Electrode Placement

Ensure wherever you intend to place the pads, that the skin is clean and thoroughly dry. Remove the pads from the clear plastic shield and position on your body as required.

Using both leads, place pads over the top and base of the knees. Avoid placing pads directly on the kneecap
