Off topic: back muscle pain quickly treated by TENS - Jan 2023

A few times a year a tiny portion of my back would seize up making movement and walking painful
In April 2022 I purchased a $32 TENS machine from Amazon

The next opportunity to use the TENS machine was in Jan 2023
Pain is almost entirely gone after ~ four 30-minute treatments in a single day
It has lots of options - but I only used the defaults on level 3 intensity out of 10
