TENS Units for Pain Relief and Treatment


What is a Tens Unit?

TENS stands for (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation), which are predominately used for pain relief and the treatment of pain and nerve related pain conditions (acute and chronic conditions). TENS machines work by sending electronic stimulating pulses across the surface of the skin and along the nerve strands.

The stimulating pulses help prevent pain signals from reaching the brain.Tens devices also help stimulate your body to produce higher levels of its own natural painkillers, called "Endorphins".

We encourage you to read about How a Tens Unit Works to treat and relieve pain.

What is a EMS Device?

EMS stands for (Electronic Muscle Stimulator), which are predominately used to prevent, or reduce, muscle atrophy. They are also called an e-stim machine or STEM Atrophy is the weakening and loss of muscle tone, which is usually experienced after surgeries or injuries. EMS has been proven to be an effective means of preventing muscle atrophy. EMS also helps by increasing blood flow to muscles, increasing range of motion, increasing muscle strength, as well as enhancing muscle endurance. EMS has pain management attributes in helping muscle related pain, such as a spastic muscle, sore muscles, or tight muscles.

Both methods have been proven to be an effective pain therapy option to help ease the effects of acute or chronic pain.

UNDERSTANDING


ELECTROTHERAPY

TENS (Trancutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) is a
small machinge with electrodes that send stimulating pulses
along nerve strands and across the skin's surface. These
impulses help to reduce pain by encouraging the body to
produce more endorphins, which act as a natural painkiller.

How Tens Units Works On Nerves

TREATMENT AT YOUR FINGERTIPS



Tens units have different adjustable settings to control amplitude (intensity) of stimulation by controlling the voltage, current, and pulse width (duration) of each pulse. Electrodes are placed at specific sites on a user's body depending on the physical location of their pain.

Typically application points for electrodes when using a tens unit (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation Unit), which brings a gentle electric current when applied to the skins surface and relieves pain.
