    Anyone ever use a TENS unit for costo related pain or back spasms? My mom has one of these units and I thought about using it for my pain. Just wondering if anyone had tried it for this type of pain and if it worked?

    Thanks, MIP

    for the reply. I'm not sure if I'm going to use it or not. I don't want to do anything that might make my pain worse. It is already bad enough.

    That's why I was hoping to find out if anyone had used it for my type of pain.

    Thank you so much and let me know how you like it. MIP

    I used a tens machine for my neck and shoulder pain. They put it on me in physical therapy. I used it for about a month, twice a week. I don't know how much you are allowed to use it, but probably more than I did. That, coupled with deep tissue massage really helped to alleviate the pain and tightness. I liked the results!
