How many of you have been to a physiotherapist and had a TENS machine treat your muscle issues? It's a pain-relief/massage system that emits an electrical pulse at certain points of your body where you apply sticky electrode pads. I had treatment twice this year (at $75 a pop) and I LOVED it so much, I bought myself a mini machine for at home. I can't wait to try it at camp too...after a day of bushwhacking!
I have recurring shoulder/clavicle pain as well as iliotibial band pain and lower back pain. This little device has been a life-saver as I can't afford a $75 physio visit every time I need treatment.
I bought this one for $50 with Amazon Prime.
Had to share because I love it so much. Who needs Dr Ho?

I use mine for about 25 minutes every morning, on my back, Without it, I'm sure it would take hours to be able to stand up straight. Mine is Proactive brand..just under $100 at Shopper's Home Health.

TANSTAAFL. There is a reason why the machines a physio uses cost 15-30 times as much. And know HOW to use them can make all the difference.

I won a Dr. Ho years ago and I love it.
