again. My son-in-law loaned me his portable unit that he used before he had neck surgery for a bulging disc. I have been using it everyday for a couple of weeks. It seems to be helping me get through excruciating pain caused from what I believe is an entrapped Saphenous nerve in my lower back or leg.
I would recommend to anyone with pain to do some research on these machines.
It feels so good to be distracted from the 24/7 pain.
This unit is a little bigger than a cell phone and runs on two AA batteries. It can be adjusted from a gentle tingling sensation to an output equal to a nuclear powered cattle prod.
