I'm a newbie here. I've had RSD since May 2005. For a while (like 4-6 months), I was using a TENS unit with the disposable gel electrodes. The relief was good, but the pads didn't stick to my back, so I needed massive amounts of tape, and that ate my back.
I recently moved, so my new PT was willing to get me an Empi soft brace that comes with 4 cloth electrodes. According to the directions, I'm supposed to spritz each electrode with 3-4 pumps of "easywear conductive solution." Well, it doesn't seem like that amount is enough, when I first put it on my back.
And, it doesn't seem like the electrodes are making significant contact with my back. When they do, it's painful because the brace has twisted so it feels like the electrode is on a nerve ending.
Any ideas? Anyone with experiences with the brace?
