YOUR SAM® QUESTIONS ANSWERED
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SAM® AND TENSS OR ESTIM?
sam® treats the source of the pain by accelerating Collagen lay-down which helps to re-align and repair any adhesion (tear) in the muscles, tendons, or ligaments. In addition, sam promotes accelerated Angiogenesis effect for new blood vessel development and provides improved multi-hour blood flow. Essentially, sam "supercharges" the body's natural healing process which restores faster. TENs and EStim are pain blockers. They "mask or block" the pain signal to the brain and function much like an electronic aspirin. They do not heal or treat the source of the pain (tissue).

The unit will automatically cool down and automatically change back to "blue" indicating normal operation.
