I have in the past experienced temporary back pain relief after treatment by tens vibrator. Can you recommend this as a regular treatment?

TENS units are often very effective in relieving the symptoms of back pain. Acupuncture also may work to relieve pain. However, it is important to determine the cause of your back pain and "treat the cause." It could be a compressed spinal nerve, vertebral compression, subluxation, etc. Consider seeking the advice of a trained health care professional to determine what is causing the pain. You may need to have X-rays or other tests to help in the assessment process.
