  • It's it like a tens unit? I wear an si belt for my hip, and a tens unit, if it's like a tens unit, don't over use it, it does help, but not if it's something your doing every other hr.

  • My DH has a TENS unit that he uses for his back & it helps with the pain tremendously. He uses it 3 times a week, plus does a home exercise program the PT gave him and, between the two, he feels so much better.
