Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation is a real mixed bag. It seems to be highly variable from patient to patient.

Be aware that cell death occurs at the application point so moderate your use long term.

I had a unit while in hospital and it did nothing for me both in terms of pain relief or muscular stimulation. However, I had an enormous amount of nerve damage and it was done as a "lets try everything" kind of deal.
