If anyone is using the Tens unit, EMS unit(or both) for any back pain, injuries or just trying to strengthen weaker areas, please let me know how thats working out for you.
I recently just bought an LGmedsupply Elite dual Tens Unit & EMS, in hopes it can help strengthen and relieve lower back pain. I have a bulging disk in my L5,s1, it hits my sciatic nerve at times, I injuried it about 15 months ago, I've done a lot of hehabing, still trying to strengthen it, just doesn't seem like it's working too good. Hopefully this plus light lower back training can get me back to heavy squats, deadlifts and grappling again.
I'm not really sure how many hz I should keep this at and how long I should keep it on for, I've done a lot of google search on it and there isn't much info out, one site said 2-10hz to help with pain and 20-50hz to help strengthen the muscle. I'm going to keep searching for more info, but would love to hear some feedback from the people that have experience with this.
