My patient is a hemiplegic and suffers chronic pain in the right (contracted) arm. Would a TENS help? I think the device is covered by Medicare.

They are very inexpensive. You can give it a try. I used one for tempore relief in the evening before bed

My mother used to have chronic pain. She had to use TENS for several years. It did give her relief for a few hours at a time.

They used one on me during Physical Therapy, it worked great. Maybe you could arrange a few sessions with a local Physical Therapy clinic and if it works then invest in one?
