Optimal Tens Unit Electrode Placement

Looking for the optimal Tens unit electrode placement? This article will detail the best positioning for tens unit electrode placement in relation to the treatment area to make sure you achieve the desired outcomes from your electrical stimulation treatment.

Benefits Of Tens Treatment

There are many benefits to Tens treatment, but the Tens unit electrode placement is crucial in achieving the highest outcomes.  Tens stimulation has been used for decades by medical professionals in the treatment of acute and chronic pain.  Tens stimulation is a safe and effective way to relieve pain that is both inexpensive, portable, simple to use, and is non-addictive.  Many other pain relief methods (ie narcotics), are habit forming and can lead to even bigger problems in the recovery from pain.

Other major benefits of TENS treatment physiologically in addition to pain relief include reduced swelling/inflammation, increased strength/mobility, and improved function.  Although Tens used to be available only exclusively to medical professionals, the invention of a home TENS unit makes continuing effective treatment with electrical stimulation convenient even after being discharged from formal medical care.

TENS Unit Electrode Placement

In order to achieve the best outcomes with your electrical stimulation treatment, using the optimal Tens unit electrode placement is critical.  There are a few basic things that you need to understand about how electrical stimulation works.  The current arcs between the electrodes that are attached to the skin around the treatment area.  The goal is to place the electrodes in a way that when the current jumps between the two – so it arcs through the desired treatment area.  You can utilized a 2-channel or 4-channel electrode setup with a TENS unit.  With the two-channel setup, simply place the electrodes around the treatment area so the current crosses between the two electrodes and through the treatment area.

Tens Unit Electrode PlacementTo perform the optimal Tens unit electrode placement with a four electrode setup, place the electrodes diagonally around the treatment area making a box.  This way each channel has two electrodes that are crossing their current through the treatment area.  The two electrode method can be used to treat a small area – or to treat two separate areas simultaneously.  The four channel method is most effective in focusing the current in a single area.
