Omron's over-the-counter electroTHERAPY Pain Relief unit can relieve lower back pain, as well as muscle and joint pain that are all too familiar for gardeners and non-gardeners alike. Lower back pain is the number one reported pain symptom in the country. This 100 percent drug-free, non-prescription therapy is a smart option for tending to aches and pains inflamed by gardening.

"As an avid gardener with two knee replacements, I'm always in search of alternative tactics to combat joint pain," said Melinda Myers , a professional horticulturist with an eye for innovative solutions. "Electrotherapy treatment lets me garden without needing to stop due to the joint pain that often comes with kneeling, reaching, and lifting."

Smart Gardening
Myers doesn't rely solely on electrotherapy to keep her gardening pain free. To reduce lower back and joint pain, she suggests following these simple pain-free gardening tips:

  • Vertical Gardening – Garden up! Grow plants on a blank wall, fence, or post.  Height makes gardening easier and creates visual interest.
  • Choose Your Tools Wisely – Look for ergonomic grips, long-handled tools, and ratcheted tools to keep your posture upright, give you more power and make the grip easier.
  • Leverage Heavy Loads – Split up large loads into smaller increments.&
