Pulse Therapy Massage
The word TENS stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation and TENS machine that have risen in popularity in recent years as an alternative to taking painkilling medications. The most well known brand of TENS machine is Dr. Ho, but other units such as Drive Medical Portable Dual Channel Tens unit and StimTec brands are growing in popularity.
Lightweight and Portable
Tens machines are generally small, lightweight and portable and have two basic components - the machine itself, and the sticky pads that are stuck to the skin in the treatment area, generally on either side of where pain is experienced. When you switch on the machine mild electrical impulses travel through the wires to the sticky pads.
The delivered electrical impulses are lower settings create a tingling sensations and at higher settings can create a twitching or spasm. For best results, start with the settings low and adjust until the tingling sensation is strong but not painful. These impulses may assist in the production of endorphins, in loosening tight muscles, in pain reductions and in relaxation. In certain brands the battery-operated controller is so small it can fit in a pocket allowing the user to go about their day.
How to benefit from TENS machines
TENS machines are thought to change the way pain signals are transmitted to the brain. Nerves and the spinal cord transmit pain signals to the brain. Stimulation - if the TENS machine's little electrical shocks can block pain signals, the brain will get less impulses from the pain source. TENS machines can be used to treat acute and chronic pain.
How TENS unit works?
TENS machines use electrodes on the skin to provide tiny electrical pulses to the body. During TENS therapy for back pain, electrodes are implanted on the skin over an area of pain in the back. Electrical impulses are produced, which travel along nerve fibers and cause tingling.
