A TENS / EMS Unit can be a great tool for helping to relieve tennis elbow & golfer’s elbow pain. Here are some pad placements to relieve different types of elbow pain.

Some common elbow injuries that may benefit from a TENS/EMS unit include things like golfer’s elbow, tennis elbow, sprains, strains, tendonitis, bursitis, and general arthritis.

TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) is used to help reduce pain and increase circulation. Basically the vibration of the TENS follows the same pathway as the pain pathway to the brain and helps cancel it out. It is a great alternative to pain medication. A TENS uses two or four electrodes with cross currents to surround the area. The deep vibration/massage helps relax the muscles and allow for healing. You should not get a muscle contraction when using TENS.

EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation) is designed to treat more of the muscle area than the nerves. It helps activate the muscles to help healing, and regain strength in that muscle. EMS is uncomfortable, and you should get a contraction with this. To help with elbow strengthening, placing the electrodes over the wrist extensor muscles is a great option.

Healthmate Forever has a wide variety of TENS/EMS Units and pads. The unit I’m using in this video is the Pro18AB and the W19 wireless units.
