DR-HO’S Pad Placement Guide

DR-HO’S Pad Placement Guide for Chronic Pain

Pain can be described in two different ways, acute and chronic. Acute pain is sudden, and is usually the result of a specific injury that can be resolved through various methods. On the other hand, chronic pain is discomfort that can last for months and is usually associated with an underlying condition like arthritis or fibromyalgia. Those living with chronic pain know how difficult it can be to preform everyday tasks, which is why it's important to find techniques to help manage your pain. Doctors will often suggest anti-inflammatory drugs or pain medications to help alleviate chronic pain symptoms. Although this may help, there are also many non-invasive, drug-free options to help manage your pain. That is why we put together the DR-HO’S Pad Placement Guide for Chronic Pain.

DR-HO’S Pain Therapy System

DR-HO'S Pain Therapy System is a TENS unit that can help relieve pain, relax your muscles and improve circulation. The multi-use gel body pads that come with the device are used to target different pain-affected areas on the body. Whether it's arthritis pain in your knees, fibromyalgia pain in your neck, or sciatic nerve pain in your lower back, the Pain Therapy System can help. The TENS unit targets the nerves in the body while creating a gentle, electrical stimulation that disrupts pain receptors from reaching the brain. However, before using DR-HO'S Pain Therapy System it's important to understand the functions of the pads, what to do before placing them on your body and where exactly to place them.

Here is a Full-Body Pad Placement Guide for Chronic Pain to help you get more from your pain relief routine:
