The Pain Therapy System S is an entry level T.E.N.S unit that comes with 4 regular replacement pads. This portable, lightweight T.E.N.S device provides effective pain relief.
The unit operates on a built-in rechargeable battery, has dual independent ports to operate 4 pads at the same time, and has a backlit digital screen. There are 8 modes and a timer for 10 minute increments, up to 60 minutes of treatment.
This product is available in two colors, black and white, and comes with an instructional DVD and pad placement chart.
A traditional TENS unit only blocks the pain temporarily. Traditional TENS machines provide stimulation at the same frequency, and over time the body adapts and stops responding. The Pain Therapy System S includes not only the benefits of TENS technology, but also Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) and our proprietary Auto-Modulating pain relieving waves. The Pain Therapy System S is different from other TENS devices on the market because it combines the above three therapeutic techniques to work to prevent your body from adapting to the therapy. It is programmed to automatically change the stimulation at random to prevent the body from adapting. These 24 different types of stimulation simulate soothing and relaxing massage techniques.
The most important difference about DR-HO’S® Pain Therapy System S over the traditional TENS machine is that it is proven to provide pain relief in as little as 20 minutes of use.
Spasms of skeletal muscles are often a result of overuse, dehydration, or from electrolyte abnormalities. A spasm is painful, abrupt, and often requires immediate relief. Clinical studies conducted at the University of Waterloo used electromyography (EMG), a diagnostic procedure that attaches electrodes to the skin and takes recordings of the electrical activity of muscle tissue to test the Pain Therapy System’s effectiveness in reducing muscle spasms.
This procedure found that using DR-HO’S® Pain Therapy System significantly reduced muscle spasms.
The body must maintain a stable level of oxygen saturation to ensure the proper functioning of the organs, brain, and heart. Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) is a method used for medical and physiological diagnostics, and is capable of measuring blood flow and the rate of oxygen consumption in the body.
This non-invasive method showed that individuals using DR-HO’S® Pain Therapy System showed a significant increase in tissue oxygenation.
The muscle oxygenation signals received while patients used the Pain Therapy System indicate that the Pain Therapy System’s ability to increase tissue oxygenation also results in an increase of circulation. Using the Pain Therapy System Pro can encourage blood to circulate and therefore transport nutrients, oxygen, blood cells, and other nourishment that helps fight diseases and maintain a healthy body.

Although DR-HO'S® Pain Therapy System S does not diagnose, treat or prevent any disease, it can help with relieving the pain, muscle tension and poor circulation associated with many ailments. Over the past 20 years, we had received thousands of testimonials from happy customers whose lives have improved with the use of our products in conjunction with their clinical care.
Relaxing tight muscles can help stimulate the blood and nerve circulation to the head, and help reduce the pain associated with headaches. For over 10 years, thousands of headache sufferers have found tremendous relief for their pain and associated neck and shoulder muscle tension with the use of DR-HO’S® Pain Therapy System Pro. For best results, headache sufferers should massage the top area on both sides at the back of the neck while lying down.
By relieving the pain and muscle tension, back pain sufferers often note an increase in their lower back flexibility, range of motion and strength. DR-HO’S® FlexTone Massage Pads are six (6) times larger than the original massage pads, and are specifically designed to provide more soothing power and deeper penetration to tense back muscles. Back pain sufferers have reported faster relief for their muscle tension and pain with DR-HO’S® FlexTone pads. With chronic back pain, we recommend massaging the painful area(s) with the DR-HO’S® Pain Therapy System Pro 3 to 5 times per day for at least 20 minutes each time.
Many of Dr. Ho’s patients who suffered from neck and shoulder pain combined their clinical treatment with the use of DR-HO’S® Pain Therapy System Pro for homecare. It helps relax the muscles, promote circulation and relieve the pain. For best results, lay on your back with a neck roll supporting your neck while using DR-HO’S® Pain Therapy System Pro to massage your neck. The neck muscles are much more relaxed when lying down with your neck supported, and the neck roll holds the massage pads tight against the skin for best conduction.
DR-HO’S ® Pain Therapy System Pro comes with a pair of DR-HO’S ® Foot Relief Massage Pads. These pads work in conjunction with the portable DR-HO’S ® Pain Therapy System Pro and are designed to provide you with the most soothing foot massage anytime you want. First, unplug all other massage pads from the massage device and plug the wire from the Foot Relief Massage Pads into the massage device. Then place the Foot Relief Massage Pads on the ground and place both bare feet on the pads and enjoy the most incredible foot massage.
Common knee injuries include knee sprains (ligament overstretched), knee strains (overused muscles around the knee), arthritis of the knee, and pain and restriction of movement after knee replacement. Since the hip is a very stable joint, sprains and strains are uncommon. However, amongst athletes, strain of the hip flexor muscle is common. For middle-aged individuals and the elderly, the most common cause of hip pain is inflammation of the hip joint, and pain and stiffness after hip joint replacement. The DR-HO’S ® Pain Therapy System Pro can alleviate knee and hip pain by simply placing the adhesive pads onto the affected area. The soothing sensation of TENS therapy can help block pain signals and instantly relieve discomfort.
Inflammation and swelling of a joint can cause pain, limited motion, and possible erosion of the cartilage joint surface. Joint-related pain can affect any age group, but is most often seen amongst seniors. Combining clinical treatment, medication and DR-HO’S ® Pain Therapy System Pro can help relieve joint-related pain. The DR-HO’S ® Pain Therapy System Pro can provide instant relief for inflamed joints with its convenient ability to be placed directly on an affected area. The small pads can be placed on areas prone to arthritis and joint inflammation such as the knees or hands.
Most acute and chronic pain related to repetitive strain injuries including wrist pain, neck pain, shoulder pain and neck tension related headaches respond well to treatments that help relax the muscles quickly and promote nerve circulation. For anyone with repetitive strain injuries, it is also a great idea to take frequent breaks from the repetitive task and use the DR-HO’S ® Pain Therapy System Pro on those tense and sore areas during your break to reduce the tension and pain immediately.
The body functions and controls itself primarily through the nervous system. The nerves carry electrical impulses to and from every cell in the body. Nerves can become damaged, pinched or irritated from disease, spinal degeneration and/or tense muscles surrounding the nerve. Pain associated with pinched or irritated nerves caused by tight muscles can be relieved by relaxing the tense muscles. Relaxation of the muscles surrounding a nerve helps reduce the stress and irritation placed directly on that nerve. This can help reduce the numbness, localized and pain associated with that nerve. Placing the DR-HO’S ® Pain Therapy System Pro pads on an area affected by nerve damage can relax the tense muscles while scrambling the pain signals being sent to the brain. Both forms of therapy work to alleviate nerve-related pain.
Many people suffer from pain needlessly. Most painful conditions persist because the underlying cause of the pain remains unknown. While some painful conditions are due to serious pathological conditions, the majority of painful conditions are non-life threatening and can be corrected. Many aches and pains originate from other health issues such as poor circulation and muscle tension that intensify aches over time. The DR-HO’S ® Pain Therapy System Pro is scientifically proven to reduce muscle tension, increase circulation, and ultimately relieve these pains.
