How Effective is TENS Treatment Process

by MEDICAL IMPORTS AUSTRALIA PTY LTD A leading supplier of tens and ems machine
Are you suffering from acute or chronic pain problems? If so, there are two ways to fight the scenario. Either you opt for medicated drug intake to relieve the pain or you can consider a physiotherapy treatment procedure.

Intake of too much of painkillers can have a negative impact on the body. There can be other undefined health issues that may make your life miserable. Therefore, it is better to opt for a non-medicated method. The concept of physiotherapy has proved to be highly effective in eliminating pain from the joints and muscles of the body. Using a TENS machine, the affected nerves of the body are stimulated through electrical rays, thus relieving the body from pain. However, physiotherapy never promises complete elimination of pain from the body for the life. Rather, it can reduce the pain tenacity and help the joints and muscles to become more resistant to the injuries.

TENS machine

The pads for TENS machine can be replaceable after a few use. How well these pads get attached to the specific body areas determines the quality of impact the treatment process will have. TENS units are widely available in the market and can be purchased without any doctor prescription. These are safe to use and comes with no to minimal side effects.

These units work through a special procedure. Electrodes or TENS pads are placed on specific part of the skin. Then, a small electrical pulse is being passed through these pads to stimulate the concerned nerves. However, you must keep in mind that the area of the skin where these pads need to be attached should be first shaved and cleaned properly. Unless so, the pads will not get attached perfectly and tightly. Loose ends will deteriorate the impact. A high pulse rate helps in blocking the impulses that result in transmitting the pain messages to different parts of the brain. Additionally, a low pulse rate can also be used that would help in stimulating the endorphin hormone production process by the body.

TENS pads

It is strongly recommended that the unit should not be used for more than 30 minutes at a time. During this time, the pain is blocked due to the passing of electrical impulses. However, you still enjoy relief from pain due to the production of endorphin hormone that happens as a result of TENS impact.

  • Understanding the kind of Pains being Blocked by TENS units

The TENS treatment process is effective in relieving chronic pains that are troubling your muscles, nerves, and joint areas of the body. However, this treatment process is highly not recommended to those who are suffering from pain because of certain conditions like hepatitis, appendicitis, etc. Those who are under strong medication to experience relief from chronic pain, for them, the TENS treatment process is extremely effective and can bring in positive results.

TENS treatment process is generally safe. However, you should consult a reputed physiotherapist before using this device. If you have a pacemaker installed in your heart, this treatment option is strongly not recommended. Read the safety guidelines before using this device.
