Of course, establishing what the TENS 7000 stimulation recommended settings are is not an exact science. Not only do settings depend on the type of pain to be treated, but also on the individual patient’s reaction to therapy. All patients are different, and what may seem like an uncomfortable level of intensity to some, may feel like tickling to others. TENS users and their doctors should work together to ensure that pain management electrotherapy is not only effective but also safe. This may entail a lot of trial and error, but in the end it will be worth it.
