Re: Leg Pain and Tens Unit ?? Strighten Back ??

My husband, who is 58 and has been fighting PPS for 20 years, is also having great pain, so we asked his Doctor last month about getting a tens unit but the Dr. sent out a PT instead. The PT guy doesnít know how or where to get one from Medicare.
My husband has had terrible pain in his arms and shoulders since last fall when he had a long bought with celulitis in his good leg. He has had cellulitis several times because of the poor circulation in his leg from the damage from the polio. I am glad to hear that the tens is helping you and would love to know if any one knows how to go about getting one.
Gary was in Warm Springs for a long time and learned not to give up or slow down but this is more pain than he can deal with on his own.
In the past I have used tens units many times and they really helped me for different kinds of pain and Iím hoping that if we can find one that it will help my husband without accelerating the PPS.

looking forward to hear from
