TENS Units and Muscle Stimulators to Manage Pain....

I've been suffering from neck and lower back pain for quite some time. After an examination and an MRI, the doctor assures me that the bulging disk in my neck is minor. He also claims the degenerative disk disease in my lower back should respond to physical therapy. The neck pain I can keep to a minimum by not lifting anything too heavy and not carrying things on my hand like a waitress. The back pain does respond to physical therapy, but my insurance only covers that for a certain number of visits. After that, I'm on my own.

The physical therapist I went to used a couple different methods during my therapy. The first being a series of exercises and stretches. After that TENS Units. Both worked quite well. The therapist also suggested a Muscle Stimulator. But my therapy sessions ran out and I felt pretty good. I knew the exercises and the stretches. I felt like I could move on without more treatment.

Some time has passed, but not enough to get my insurance company to pay for more physical therapy. I'm looking into getting an LG-TEC Dual Combo TENS Unit and Muscle Stimulator of my own. This unit is safe, easy to use and priced right. These units are widely used in hospital and sports clinics, so I'm willing to use one at home to help with pain.

After I Visit LGMed Supply Online, I'm going to do my exercises and check out the online customer blog and then get on with my day. I think I've found a great way to manage pain and I'm looking forward to more pain free days and nights.
