TENS Pad Placement for Carpal Tunnel

Carpal tunnel is a common condition that causes pain, numbness and tingling in the hand and arm. It's caused when the median nerve, one of the major nerves to the hand, is compressed. Many things can contribute to carpal tunnel, including the anatomy of your wrist, health problems and repetitive hand motions.1 Fortunately, it is possible to relieve the tingling and numbness in your wrist and hand with massaging treatments like TENS therapy. Read on to learn about TENS pad placement for carpal tunnel pain.

Get to Know the Types of Pads

You will receive different types of pads when you order your Pain Therapy System or your Pain Therapy System Pro:

Regular Gel Body Pads: These long-lasting, highly-conductive small pads are sized to target painful spots with greater accuracy.

Small Gel Pads

Large Gel Body Pads: These larger pads are also long-lasting and highly conductive. They are perfect for targeting broader areas of pain such as the legs, the arms and the shoulders.
