Many people require medication or physical therapy for pain relief. There is a large arsenal of drug-free pain-relief therapies and techniques that can help with chronic pain. Chronic pain can be one of the most aggravating conditions to experience, especially if the cause is unknown and it leaves you disabled. However, physical therapy techniques and therapeutic exercises can help mobilize your joints and soft tissue and may restore muscle function, reducing aches or eliminating pain altogether. And when patients continue to perform the prescribed physical exercises regularly, it can keep the pain from returning.
One of the less obvious advantages of physical therapy is that it helps handle and manage many age-related health problems including joint pains, arthritis, and osteoporosis. Physical therapy can be a safer and more conservative approach for people with chronic pain, as it gives them a less traumatic alternative than undergoing joint replacement surgery. Physical therapy benefits has also proven to be beneficial for patients suffering from cardiac issues, as it improves cardiovascular function.
Some patients have difficulty leaving the house to go to physical therapy. These people may still enjoy the benefits of physical therapy in their home. If you suffer an injury or illness that limits your ability to move around normally, you may benefit from physical therapy. And if you cannot leave the house, home-care physical therapy may be the best option.
Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation can be a self help home-care therapy for chronic pain and stiffness. One of the most common forms of electrical stimulation used for pain management is transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) therapy.Low-voltage electrical nerve stimulation and electro thermal therapy which provides short-term pain relief associated with many conditions like chronic & acute back pain, degenerative or bulging discs, tension headaches, knee and hip pain, arm pain, leg pain, foot and ankle pain and pain related to sports and activity. People who suffer chronic pain can have a small, battery operated TENS machine to use at home. The most important difference about DR-HO'S Pain Therapy System Pro over the traditional TENS machine is that it is proven to provide pain relief in as little as 20 minutes of use.
Reduces Muscle Tension
Clinical studies conducted at the University of Waterloo used electromyography (EMG), a diagnostic procedure that attaches electrodes to the skin and takes recordings of the electrical activity of muscle tissue to test the Pain Therapy System’s effectiveness in reducing muscle spasms. This procedure found that using DR-HO'S Pain Therapy System Pro significantly reduced muscle spasms.
The Pain Therapy System Pro includes not only the benefits of TENS technology, but also Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) and our proprietary Auto-Modulating pain relieving waves. It’s programmed to automatically change the stimulation at random to prevent the body from adapting. These 24 different types of stimulation simulate soothing and relaxing massage techniques.
Increases Oxygenation and Circulation.
The body must maintain a stable level of oxygen saturation to ensure the proper functioning of the organs, brain, and heart. Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) is a method used for medical and physiological diagnostics, and is capable of measuring blood flow and the rate of oxygen consumption in the body. This non-invasive method showed that individuals using the Pain Therapy System Pro showed a significant increase in tissue oxygenation also results in an increased circulation. Using the Pain Therapy System Pro can encourage blood to circulate and therefore transport nutrients, oxygen, blood cells, and other nourishment that helps fight diseases and maintain a healthy body.
Personalized Intensity Controls can be adjusted independently for each port meaning that the unit can be used by two people at the same time or can be used on two different parts of the body at the same time, both with independent modes and levels of intensity.
6 Different massage modes mean that you have many different treatment options when using the Pain Therapy System Pro. Each mode is designed with different waves and frequencies in order to provide professional-grade pain relief.
Auto-Modulating Pain Relieving Waves keep your body guessing and prevents treatment adaptation, resulting in the best possible results for you. Many TENS devices have a single mode that your body can potentially adapt to, reducing overall results potential.
Alleviates Aching Feet & Legs
DR-HO’S Circulation Promoter uses Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS), Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) and Pulse Massage to help stimulate the nerves and muscles in the soles of the feet. This allows for a variety of massage sensations that can relieve aches after a day of putting constant weight on your feet. The Circulation Promoter has electrode pads included that can be placed directly onto painful areas of the feet, ankles, or calves and relieve aches.
Auto-Off Timer. Before bed, simply set the timer, relax, and allow the system to work while you slowly find comfort and fall asleep. When the timer expires, the machine will shut off on its own.
DR-HO'S Pain Therapy Pro system is a dual-independent digital T.E.N.S machine is equipped with 2 ports to run 4 gel pads which allows you to control the intensity of your treatment from seven therapeutic massage modes treating two parts of the body at once! DR-HO'S Pain Therapy System Pro comes with 24 Small pads, 6 large pads, 1 pair of Travel Foot Therapy Pads, Pain Therapy Back Relief Belt & Therapy & Support Band. This unit is rechargeable and comes with an A/C Adapter. For a limited time, receive the Circulation Boosting Foot Massage pads as a bonus with your purchase! Over one million Pain Therapy Systems have been sold worldwide.
DR-HO’S products are scientifically proven to relieve pain and reduce muscle tension and spasms. An at-home TENS device was part of a scientific study conducted by Dr. Stuart M. McGill Ph.D which also showed that TENS can help to increase tissue oxygenation and improve circulation.

Dr. Stuart M. McGill is a professor emeritus, University of Waterloo, where he was a professor for 30 years. His laboratory and experimental research clinic investigated issues related to the causal mechanisms of back pain, how to rehabilitate back-pained people and enhance both injury resilience and performance. His advice is often sought by governments, corporations, legal experts, medical groups and elite athletes and teams from around the world.
Omega-3 for joint pain
Studies have shown that high levels of omega-3 EPA benefits joint health, mobility and can also reduce the swelling and tenderness of joints. The body uses omega-3 fatty acids to produce prostaglandins that resolve inflammation, making them an essential nutrient for the prevention and treatment of inflammatory conditions. The powerful anti-inflammatory effects of omega-3 fatty acids, particularly eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) make it a promising potential therapy for reducing joint inflammation. Taking an omega-3 supplement with a high EPA concentration, such as OmegaXL is an easy way to reduce joint inflammation, pain and stiffness. Read More
