    Discuss Twin Channel TENS MACHINES, They may help you control your pains.

    Some TENS can be also used as an EMS Machine as well, they can tone on muscle groups and make you stronger.

    Hi Sandra, Sorry to hear you are having problems but I think the TENS machine is the way to go. I am 84 and had both hips done in 2016.... 6 months apart.

    Since then, the hips have been great, but on long car journeys, up to 7 & a 1/2 hours, muscle spasms kick in.Last one was a week ago, it laid me up for 2 days...every time I moved a spasm kicked in and took my breath away.The TENS machine fixed it.

    Coming home, I had a hot water bottle on it, also got out and walked around every hour or so, and had no pain at all, Probably a good massage would help also .Hope this helps.
