Re: Need suggestions please
I think a TENS unit is worth trying. I use one when I have my worst days, and it helps keep the pain down enough so that I don't have to go to the ER. I have upper back and neck pain, but I think it would work great on lower back pain. It might not help the radiating pain you have down into your leg, but I think it would help with the pain in your back. The nice this about a TENS unit is that there is really little risk. You will need a prescription for one. My ins paid for it, but I'm sure they'll nail for for a hundred or so dollars for one if it's not covered. Maybe you still have a WC claim? I hope oyu find something that helps a bit. Did you have a second opinion on the "non-surgical" issue?
