Hamstring & Quadriceps Pain

Hamstring Pain in One Location
Hamstring Pain in One Location

U-set: The round 2″ diameter primary electrode is placed directly over the location that the pain presents, for example on the belly of the hamstring. This electrode can treat a single pain location up to about 3″ in diameter.

The very large rectangular secondary electrode is placed horizontally across the lumbar area which is a convenient and very comfortable place to receive stimulation. This large secondary electrode is so large in area, the density of the electrical field is so low, that there is no treatment effect; this electrode acts just as a dispersive electrode to complete the circuit. There is no maximum distance between the electrodes.

B-set: Two same sized round electrodes may be used to treat a large area of pain. If the two 2″ diameter round electrodes are placed one inch apart from one another, then the effective active electrical field forms in a 3″ by 6″ volume of tissue beneath both electrodes.

For example, for a hamstring strain over a large area, the two 2″ round electrodes may be placed about one inch apart from one another directly over the location where the pain presents. The effective area treated would be approximately 6″ high by 3″ wide by approximately 1.5″ deep. Depth of penetration of the active electrical field is proportional to the intensity level reached and type of tissue through which the electrical signals pass. One inch is the minimum spacing between the electrodes. Electrodes must not touch each other.
