Can TENS cure PN? What program should i use?

Postby PleaseHelp » Mon Apr 24, 2017 6:35 am

Hey forum members!

I recently began with electrotherapy at my pain doctor.
2 Days ago i realized that it is the same as TENS which i have at home, I just used the wrong programs so i didn't feel the TENS working.

Now i used it again with another program - but there are a few now:
- 3 programs for acute, neuropathic or chronic pain
- 1 program for muscle pain
- 3 programs for muscle tension

Which one should I use, just trying everything?
And is it possible that TENS can cure the Pudendal Nerve? Or does it just minimize the pain while I do it?

Because I think it help me, I realize it is doing something in that area.

TENS unit did not help me before surgery but once the nerve had calmed down a bit after surgery, the TENS unit was great for getting the pelvic floor muscles to relax again.

What settings does your physical therapist recommend? If your pain is due to tight, tense muscles, the TENS unit could significantly help your pain. If the pain is due to an entrapped nerve, it doesn't seem as likely that it would help.

PNE since 2002. Started from weightlifting. PNE surgery from Dr. Bautrant, Oct 2004. Pain now is usually a 0 and I can sit for hours on certain chairs. No longer take medication for PNE. Can work full time and do "The Firm" exercise program. 99% cured from PGAD. PNE surgery was right for me but it might not be for you. Do your research.
