It is no secret as I’ve talked about my aches and pains as well as my husband’s here on the site before. While supplements have definitely given us some relief over the years, we are always looking to alternatives to assist with the pain. Over the last 15 years or so my husband and I have used various types of Tens Unit Electronic Pulse machines and recently we have started using a new one. I wanted to share with all of you our thoughts on the Santamedical PM-120 Tens Unit Electronic Pulse Massager and discuss how this product has worked for us.
Between hours of Physical Therapy and years of supplements and treatment, my husband and I know that any little thing can help when it comes to pain. I suffer from severe Carpal Tunnel syndrome and Medial Epicondylitis and my husband has wrist sprain & pain from an injury sustained at work as well as a herniated/perforated disk in his spine amongst old sports injuries in his knees and a past shoulder surgery. We have had our share of tens units prescribed to us through doctors that wound up costing us hundreds of dollars. Don’t get me wrong – they work and do offer some pain relief but they can be expensive and even if our medical covered a portion, they still became a cost we had to burden.
Recently my husband and I were able to try out the SantaMedical PM-120 Tens Unit Electronic Pulse Massager. This cool little unit is actually quite affordable. It’s a small and portable compact device that is great on the go or for travel. Retails for $149.95 but is currently on sale for $35.00 which is a steal considering ones my husband and I own that are quite far and above that price point and do the same thing. The unit offers six auto modes (stimulation programs) and a pause button and with a 10 to 60 minute timer with auto shut off, you get various options for relief. The unit has an LCD display which is much easier to read than a manual display that many on the market still have and you also get attachment pads, a rechargeable battery and a power adapter all included.
The adhesive pads / electrodes have a great stickiness to them so you can use it more than once and the battery is rechargeable which makes it much more affordable. Some of our older Tens Units require 9Volt batteries which can be costly. I like that you can use this anywhere on the body and there are a set of two wires with two wires attached to each so you can place the electrodes on four areas that need treatment. The LCD screen is easy to see and read and the unit itself is easy to maneuver as well. This unit overall comes with everything you need to give your body some relief for both joint and muscle pain and again – the price can’t be beat.
