High Volt Pulsed Stimulator vs Interferential Stimulator???

Has anyone ever tried either of these? I would really like to get some feed back on how well they work for your pain. How easy or difficult it was to get them and get them approved by your insurance. Thanks~

Re: High Volt Pulsed Stimulator vs Interferential Stimulator???

I didn't get my own, I got one from my mom, and actually my sister and I fight over it, so my mom called her dr and said it broke and a new one is on the way. I think it really helps, (I have the high volt pulsed stim) I try to use it on really bad days, so that I don't depend on it. I think it helps a ton, as for your insurance, see if it's covered under durable medical equipment, then you dr needs to write you a script. most insurance's will cover DME if its medically necessary. good luck

I used TENS for a few months for my herniated discs and sciatica... I found it worked okay but i had to wear it all the time, the IF tho works much better. I have not tried a high volt pulsed stim, will be interested to hear more about it.
