Medial Knee Placement

Medial Knee Pain or Pain from an MCL Sprain

Use E-Set Electrodes

The round electrode is placed directly over the primary point of pain. The larger rectangular electrode is placed on the lateral side of the knee, just above the midline of the knee angled to the anterior.

The rectangular electrode should be placed on the lateral aspect (outside) of the knee, just touching the edge of the patella (kneecap) and running down onto the patellar tendon.
