TENS Massager – Effective and Safe Pain Relief at Home
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator (TENS) is a wonderful device that can be used by individuals to use small doses of electric currents as a sort of massage and thereby pain relief. TENS is a small electronic device which has electrodes to be placed on the skin which delivers electric current. Unlike pain relieving medications, which affect the entire body (even those parts which are not suffering from pain), TENS machine offers targeted pain relief to only those body parts which are experiencing pain.
A TENS device is easy to use, and simple and compact, providing fast and reliable pain relief, anywhere, at play, home or work.
Effective for Chronic and Acute Pain
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation has been proven to be highly effective in chronic and acute pain. It is widely used and recommended by physiotherapists, sports coaches, doctors, pain clinics and many medical practitioners. Because of a TENS unit you experience quick pain relief and the relief can sustain for many hours in a day. For many sufferers, the effect of TENS is dramatic.
Pain Relief Through Electric Current
The TENS machine sends comfortable currents to the skin that stimulate the nerves there and offer pain relief. The degree of pain relief varies from patient to patient. It also varies according to the type of pain and the mode chosen for therapy. In some patients, the reduction or removal of pain lasts longer than the actual duration of stimulation (sometimes even 3-4 times longer), while in others, there is only a modification of pain when stimulation actually takes place.
Which Pains can be Relieved with a TENS Machine?
A number of pains can be relieved by the use of a TENS machine. Some examples are back pain, shingles, peripheral nerve injuries, sciatica, muscular pain, post-operative pain, neck and whiplash injury, headaches and migraines, rheumatoid and osteo-arthritis, painful joints, and many more.
- The main outstanding benefit of TENS machine is that it can be used at home for pain relief for a long term.
- TENS unit enables the user to adjust the intensity of the current, and choose low or high frequency stimulation. High frequency stimulation is conventional and tolerable for hours but offers pain relief for a short time, while low frequency stimulation is acupuncture-like and is tolerable only for 20 to 30 minutes but offers pain relief for long.
- Pain relief can be achieved with TENS unit by placing the electrodes on the actual painful area or even on its opposite side.
