TENS unit for managing pain?


#1

I’m curious what kinds of medical devices people are using these days for managing chronic pain without medications. These technologies seem to offer a lot of hope for relief. Pain can be so disruptive to sleep, but more and more people are trying to skip using drugs for pain management.

For instance, has anybody here used a transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation device (known as a TENS unit) to address chronic pain to improve their chances of falling asleep?
