TENS UNIT

Posted by Rich S on 8/12/02 at 12:27 (092290)

Hi, I got my TENS unit recently. I was wondering where I should place the patches on my foot. This unit has two sticky patches that can ve placed on the skin.

Im just not sure where I should place the patches.

Sincerely,
Rich

For me, I place one patch directly over the tarsal tunnel area where I have the pain. The other patch can go anywhere. I have pain on the outer side of my ankle as well, so I place the patch there.

You need to have two to make the circuit. Maybe further up the nerve on you leg, I don't know.

How is it working?
