TENS UNIT

Does anyone know if a small tens unit is on market? I have used them for back problem but I have not seen smaller ones - maybe could be placed near the ear or neck area. Thanks

Great post precious, did you come across the TENS idea reading th emails on my journal or is this something you've been considering for some time? Glad to see someone posting it up.

There are Electrical therapies using TENS therapy for tinnitus at the Atlanta Ear Clinic in GA.

Ledi, look up TENS on google. Let us know what your plans are with the a smaller TENS unit, pre3.

The tens unit I was given by my head, neck and jaw specialist is listed as a T2 unit from Electo Medical Solutions in Palm Harbor, Florida.
I was told that the elec stimulation of the muscles associated with tmj is helpful in reducing the pain and soreness, but not the tinnitus.
If I put it anywhere near my ears (within 3-4 inches) it can be pretty aggravating for the tinnitus. I do not think it is intended to treat tinnitus, but if it helps, more power to us.

Precious, please let me know if you found one yet. I have one that I don't use but am not sure if its the size you are looking for.
