I’ve tried tens machine, microcurrent machine but none helped. Saving up for prp platelet rich plasma.

Can you explain to me how the platelet rich plasma works?

If you can look on utube see pelvic pain for women dr Mayo Friedlis. He explained it so much better. From my take on it, they take your blood from your arm. They take it to their regenexx machine and they spin it. The regenexx then spins the blood at higher concentrates than most and therefore when they inject your platelets they are enriched with goodness into the sacroiliac joint and the pubic symphysis and all the goodness goes back in and helps heal the ligaments. You may need a few rounds of this two - four. That’s my take on it. See utube research too. I will come back on here when I have them done!

Yes... I use TENS for pelvic pain & Sciatic pain. It's vitally important you place the pads in the correct positions.. I've got a diagram if you'd like me to email it to you.. there's nowhere to post it on here.

I found the TENS machine was the most effective to ease the PN pain. My physiotherapist suggested this when the physio had not been successful. I still use the TENS when the pain is bad but as someone else said, you need to place in the right place on the lower back. Def better than medication in my opinion.

Can you tell me where you place the TENS unit pads for pn pain? thank you

I was loaned a TENS machine by the local chronic pain centre and am using it to address chronic perineal pain. As observed, It's important that the pads are placed in an appropriate position - and that the intensity and pulses are correctly modulated. I am continuing to try different combinations and would certainly appreciate further discussion of this topic.

I have tried the tens unit and it didn’t help me but my mom gave me a Quell from Best Buy ( buy the sports electrodes they last longer) it does help me sleep. I use it nightly and it does benefit me.

I have not been on this board in a while-you do know about the dct program, right? It works when everything else doesn’t

I probably had the unit placed incorrectly as it made me feel worse. I would greatly appreciate the diagram if you could send it my way - andilynn@aol.com. I’m encouraged that it helps you!

Thanks so much,

Andi

Didn’t work for me with pelvic pain or labour pain with childbirth, hate the sensation of it too/ wires made me less mobile too, which was unhelpful to pain in either condition.
