Dealing with muscle pain? You came to the right place. 

Anyone who has lived with chronic pain and related conditions knows that pain and discomfort can strike unexpectedly, and when it does, it can be intrusive and even detrimental to your every day life. Because of this, pain-sufferers are often seeking out new ways to find relief so they can get back to doing the things they love. And for any variety of reasons, you may be looking to accomplish this without the use of prescription medications or invasive procedures.

If you’re one of these pain-sufferers who’s looking for new ways to manage pain, a TENS device can be just what you’re looking for. Specifically, if you’re dealing with muscle-related pain, you may find that the EMS technology in TENS devices can target your pain effectively and meaningfully. Keep reading to learn the basics about TENS and EMS, and to see if this form of pain management is right for you.



What Is TENS?

TENS Therapy: TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) gently stimulates the nerves with electrical stimulation to help reduce pain signals sent to the brain and thus provide temporary relief of pain. Additionally, TENS therapy is thought to aid in the release of endorphins — a naturally-occurring chemical that may also provide temporary pain relief.

What about EMS?

EMS Therapy: EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation) works in tandem with TENS in DR-HO’S devices to target the muscles in addition to the nerves, allowing more people dealing with all kinds of pain to find effective, temporary relief when it’s needed most.

EMS gently stimulates the muscles in pain-affected areas, causing them to contract and relax in order to increase local circulation and soothe achiness and soreness — whether your pain was caused by an acute injury or a chronic condition. Stimulating healthy muscles also helps improve and facilitate muscle performance, and an increase in local circulation is thought to help deliver oxygen and other nutrients through the bloodstream, to the muscles. 

When muscle pain strikes, it’s important to have a device on hand that you can rely on for fast-acting, temporary relief — especially considering how intrusive and unexpected a flare-up of pain can be. While EMS can’t address the underlying condition causing muscle pain, it can help pain-sufferers get back to some of their normal activities, and feel more like themselves again.

What makes DR-HO’S devices different?

While there are other TENS and EMS devices on the market, DR-HO’S devices include stand out from the crowd with proprietary AMP technology.

This is Dr. Michael Ho’s proprietary technology that provides over 300 different stimulations that vary in wavelength, frequency and rest periods. This technology can be found in the EMS massager and many more DR-HO products.

These constantly-changing stimulations are programmed to automatically change, so you get a soothing variety of pulses as you’re using the device. This proprietary technology is the key difference between DR-HO'S devices and other TENS devices on the market.



How can TENS & EMS devices be used?

DR-HO’S devices can be used in the following ways:

1. For temporary relief of pain associated with sore and aching muscles including leg pain and foot pain, back pain, arm pain, neck and shoulder pain due to exercise or normal household work activities.

2. For symptomatic relief and management of chronic, intractable pain and relief of pain associated with arthritis.

3. To stimulate healthy muscles in order to improve and facilitate muscle performance.

4. To temporarily increase local blood circulation in healthy muscles.
