Had anyone here ever used a TEMS before. Can they be used to help work out muscles besides help with pain? Please help I'm Struggling to stay on track because of the pain.

Not to build muscle but they can help prevent muscle atrophy and they do give you a burn the day after.

Bruce Lee used to use them while striking to increase his speed and power.  Didn't do him any harm I suppose.

I would say in experience there best for pain.

TENS machines are only for pain. To work a muscles you need a unit that delivers Stims like Russian or Hi-volt. This is what we use to re-educate a muscle after a stroke for instance. TENS only really works on the sensory nerve, the twitch is only on burst mode at high intensity.
