For those who suffer from chronic or acute pain conditions, finding the right pain-management solution is an all-consuming task. Reducing the pain associated with illness, injury, or trauma can greatly increase your quality of life, but some sufferers become discouraged when they see how few options there are on the market for this aim. Many of the more conventional options create some unwanted side effects, and they’re often quite costly.
Two popular choices for pain relief at home is the use of a TENs machine, and The Handy Cure/HandyRx. Which one is better for you? Here, we will break down the differences between these two devices, and show you which one is more likely to be successful in relieving your chronic and acute pain. Learn more below!
In a TENs machine, you may find that the adhesive pads will wear off rather quickly, and the replacement pads can add up over time in cost. Secondly, the TENs machine only targets surface pain, and those with more deep muscle or joint pains will find that the TENs machine is not suitable for them.
The TENs machine will also need to be set up when in use by attaching the pads to specific parts of the body, and many find this inconvenient. Typically, this limits the TENs machine to home use.
While the TENs machine might reduce pain in those who suffer from shallow, skin deep pain conditions, it may not be worth the investment because of its impracticality and on-going payment needs.
The Handy Cure/HandyRx
The Handy Cure/HandyRx is a more cost-effective device that will not require any on-going payment or replacement parts. The Handy Cure/HandyRx is much lower in price than then the mid to high tiered TENs machines. Moreover, the mobility offered by The Handy Cure/HandyRx cannot be replicated in the TENs machine. You can use a Handy Cure/HandyRx any place, any time, and will not need to hook up any adhesive pads to the affected part of the body. Finally, because The Handy Cure/HandyRx uses more than one source of energy for pain relief, it is able to more deeply penetrate muscles and affected areas; this means a more deep and thorough pain-relief option.
