* The Working Process of TENS Device
A TENS Unit work by passing of electrical pulses through the electrode pads attached to specific areas of the skin.

This may well be the common use of a device, but the initial starting phase will be at a slow pace. Basically, the expert physician will use different frequencies to understand the best possible option for the patient. The frequency range impact would vary from one patient to another.

* Low Frequency
A TENS device, working in lower frequencies of 2-5 Hz is believed to cause a reactive statement for the body. The reaction may result in creating endorphin, a natural painkilling hormone.

* Using the TENS Machine
The machine you would be purchasing will definitely come with all the detailed instructions that need to be followed carefully. In general, you must be careful with the operating part of the device. Make sure that the device is totally turned off before the application of the electrode. This is a crucial part of the process. At the same time, you also need to test the device before the use. This is done to ensure whether the pads for TENS machine is functioning properly or not. Hold the pads in your fingers and turn of the machine to experience a sort of tingling effect. If the effect is present, then it's totally working. If you don't feel the tingling sensation, the machine may not be working properly.

Also, it is essential to clear the area of the skin where you would be putting the TENS pads. Keep in mind, while you are trying your best to put the electrode pads on, make sure that the area of the skin where you are trying to attach is not sensitive or features any kind of injury. Use conductive gels to cover the electrodes. Make sure that they are placed a minimum of one inch apart. Ensure that they are properly taped down to avoid loose ends.
