Have you been to physical therapy or chiropractor and tried a 20 minute interferential treatment? Interferential is not a tens machine but actually much stronger. Main form of electrotherapy used in hospitals clinics for chronic pain over last half century.
Interferential provides what is called "carryover pain relief" which simply means you should get pain relief during the 12 - 20 minute session and for some time period thereafter. Try that.View Thread
Enjoy some of your previous posts but do want to clarify what is consistent, but not factual.
The posts are to "Chronic Pain" patients with the diagnosis symptomatic, not causative. The comments on "BY DOING NOTHING AT ALL" your pain would disappear are not appropriate for a chronic pain patient. I agree with you completely if the person writing were in an acute episode of pain, but that is not who you are responding to.
Unfortunately even the use of "placebo" is inappropriate as many chronic pain patients have already "been there done that" yet they still are in pain.
I'm not a chronic pain patient but just as a courtesy many of them are offended with that type comment being made.
