Fall marathon training is in full force and along with mega long runs comes mega sore muscles. The makers of the Omron Pain Relief Pro electoTHERAPY unit reached out to The Sisterhood asking if we’d be interested in reviewing their electrotherapy TENS unit device. Since I’ve been battling some foot and calf pain, I jumped at the chance to give this little device a try.
The Omron Pain Relief Pro TENS unit is a portable, cost-effective device that can be used to treat a variety of muscle and joint pains or stiffness without the need of a prescription. Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) technology has been used by physical therapists, physicians and chiropractors for years to safely relieve pain. The Pain Relief Pro’s 8 pre-set modes offer targeted pain relief or a relaxing massage and the pads are designed to be reused up to 150 times.
· Five for pain in the Arm, Lower Back, Leg, Food and Joint
· Three for relaxing your muscles: Tap, Knead, Rub
· Ten power levels of intensity
Having used the device on my foot, ankle, lower back and calf, I can say it is as effective as my daughter’s prescription grade TENS unit, but much easier to operate. The manual and quick start guide make the Pain Relief Pro pretty idiot-proof and I found the varying levels of intensity to be beneficial. (I never got the device up to a “10” but maxed out around 7 or 8.) It even comes with a clip so you can walk around while using the device.
The kit includes: unit, electrode cords, two Long Life pads, pad holder, cloth carrying case, 2 AAA batteries, instruction manual, quick start guide and pad placement guides.
