A TENS / EMS Unit can be a great tool for helping to reduce and relieve knee pain. It can also help retrain weak or injured muscles. Here are a few wireless & wired pad placements to help relieve knee pain.
Some common knee and leg injuries that may benefit from a TENS/EMS unit include things like bursitis, tendonitis, strains, sprains, knee replacements (TKA), and arthritis pain.
EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation) is used to help retrain muscles. It helps activate the muscles to accelerate healing and regain strength in that muscle. EMS is uncomfortable, and you SHOULD get a contraction with this.
TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) is used to help reduce pain and increase circulation. The vibration/massage helps relax the muscles and increase circulation to help with healing. You should NOT get a sustained muscle contraction when using TENS.
Wireless TENS/EMS units are a great option for knee pain because there’s no worry about getting the cords tangled. The iReliev TENS/EMS wireless unit is not only wireless, but it also has 14 different modes to help you get the best option for pain relief. Their large pads also make it easy to place over a larger area to get the best coverage.
