I do have to say, I had some wrist pain after being on the computer so I set this to 1 and massaged the area and the pain was gone 👍. I got this for my husband who has elbow pain, I can’t say anything for him but it’s an interesting device. I don’t use it higher than one but he’s had it on 3 on his neck and it’s crazy 😄, he gets this spot that makes his whole shoulder and arm jump like crazy. I didn’t know about these devices until recently but it’s neat to have (and cheap) so worth it I guess. I also use this when I have some knee pain and I believe it eases the ache.
I really like this little gadget. A lady I work with was having shoulder problems so I took one to her to try out. Another person saw it and said it is very similar to the gadget her chiropractor uses. My daughter-in-law tried mine on her leg where it was painful and she was so pleased that I ended up leaving it with her. I have given away two, so I need to order more. For something so inexpensive, it is great. The power level goes up to a "9" but I absolutely cannot stand it any higher than a "4" and I have a fairly strong tolerance for pain. In my opinion, this little pen magnet can't be beat.
I do heavy weight training and use this silver bullet to speed up healing and also treat minor lifting injuries like knots in my muscles.
My husband uses this on his neck and shoulders to relieve tension headaches. He hasn’t gotten another tension headach since using this a couple times/week.
I don’t post many reviews. With that being said, I must say my experience with this product has been a wonderful surprise. I have had acupuncture therapy in the past so I am familiar with the principles of it. This handy little pen has worked on a chronic hand pain I’ve been suffering with and I’m starting to use it on other areas. This is the 2nd one I’ve ordered and I haven’t had any issues with the battery compartment. It does take 1 AA battery. I’d suggest using the contact gel. It will take away any stinging sensation. The only problem I’ve encountered is with the contact gel getting down into the electrode contact. To stop this from causing problems, I unscrew it and soak in hot water for a few minutes and then let it air dry before screwing back onto tip. Great product and if you suffer from pain, this could be an alternative.
