    It provided some relief for a while, but doesn't get used much.

    I think the pain is too deep for it to work effectively, but we do still have it.

    It will probably come in handy when our daughters are in labor though :)

    I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
    but I fear we will remain Democrats.

      extended periods; however the placement of the pads is essential.  You have to get a complete electrical circuit running through the damaged nerves which means experimenting with the number and placement of the pads.
      I have never tried 2 units but understand some people find relief with such use.  I have had my entire shoulder numbed completely during a 12 hour use period
