  • Best spots for electrodes?

    I got my TENS unit to from my pt!!!! yay!!

    She has used it on my butt cheeks, it hurt. I get a lot of frequency relief from putting them on my lower stomach. I use it for PFD as well as IC.

    Is there any spots that work best for you? And what do they work for?

    I use it in a wide smile type placement low sort of hip to hip to address my frequency and bladder pain. It does help with my other vaginal pain just because it gives me some other sensation to focus on. I got placement ideas from the Ending Female Pelvic Pain book as well as the spots on my back where my pudendal nerve blocks were. Good luck!
