What are the risks with a TENS machine?

With any medical device or procedure there are some associated risks, but compared to most options the list really isnโ€™t that long.

The only recorded risk when the machine is being used as specified in the manual is an allergic reaction to the gel on the electrode pads. Though if this occurs or you have reason to believe it may, you can purchase hypoallergenic pads from some other retailers.
