The shoulder sleeve is a set of tendons from the shoulder muscles.
According to the Mayo Clinic, your shoulder sleeves help to secure your upper arm bone in your shoulder socket and lead to the maximum range of motion for any joint of your body.
Your shoulder joint must be a bit unstable due to this wide range of motion, which can cause damage.
Most of the shoulder sleeve injuries were cured by conservative treatment;
But the dermal nerve stimulation (TENS)
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, this may help speed up the process (AAOS).
Follow these guidelines and use the TENS device correctly to treat shoulder sleeve injuries.
Test the battery pack of the TENS unit to ensure it is fully charged.
Before starting the treatment, \"turn off\" the control knob \".
Wipe the shoulder skin with alcohol to make sure the skin is dry.
Place a thin layer of gel coating on the bottom of each electrode to help the current transfer through your skin.
Place the electrode where the shoulder is sore.
If you have two electrodes, put one in front of your shoulder and one in the back.
If you have four electrodes, put one in front, one in the back, one on the side, and one on the top of your shoulder blade, attach the electrode wires to the TENS unit.
Set the TENS unit to the settings recommended by the doctor.
During the time recommended by the doctor, keep ten units on the skin.

Replace the unit battery with a rechargeable battery.
