Holiday Gift Guide Feature: Bayer’s Aleve® Direct Therapy™ (ADT) TENS Device
As I write this I am ending several days of covering an employees shift at work. Not only am I waking up much earlier then normal to cover her shift, I am working different tasks. Some of these tasks involve lifting, standing a lot and working longer hours. My back has felt this change. So, the Bayer’s Aleve® Direct Therapy™ TENS Device lower back patch has arrived at the right time.
If there is a silver lining in my back pain this week it is that I can actually try out the patch. I put in on after dinner and errands and kept it on all evening.
The Aleve® Direct Therapy allows for relief from lower back pain. TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) is a therapy that uses electrical stimulation to relieve pain. How does it work? By blocking the transmission of pain or by stimulating endorphins. Both of those could drastically reduce pain. It uses a patented 3-stage waveform technology to incorporate both of these clinical theories of TENS to provide pain relief.
There is a + and – buttons on the patch. This gives you control on the intensity of the waveform you need or are comfortable with. I like this because I can be sensitive to stronger waveforms so I like to choose my own strength.
The safety concerns are only obvious ones. You could possibly have a contact reaction to the gel. You would not want to use it if pregnant or have a pacemaker or IMD. It is discrete enough to wear to bed or even out for errands and work.
If you know someone who suffers from back pain, this may be the stocking stuffer that will actually get used. Visit https://www.aleve.com/aleve-direct-therapy/ to learn more and your refill gel pads can be easily bought from retailers like Walmart and online.
