Do you feel pain all over your body when the weather changes? Stiff and sore after gardening or walking up stairs? Osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia are often confused because both conditions have many of the same symptoms. Both conditions usually cause muscle pain, limited mobility and stiffness in the morning and make it hard to do general day-to-day activities.
People with fibromyalgia usually have more widespread pain and general body tenderness whereas osteoarthritis pain is usually localised around a joint or joints. A person can have both fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis at the same time.
A TENS unit can provide relief from generalised and localised pain.
Using a TENS machine at home for up to 30 minutes a few times a day can provide pain relief for fibromyalgia and arthritis.
For relief from generalised pain, commonly experienced with fibromyalgia, the electrodes should be placed on the most painful region first and then moved to other areas as needed.
For localised arthritic pain, the electrodes should be placed above and below or parallel to the painful joint. Non-painful electrical impulses are then carried to the brain to block the feeling of pain. Low frequency and high frequency settings (pulses per second) can help with osteoarthritis pain relief. If you are looking for a TENS machine to help manage your osteoarthritis, look for a unit that will let you control high and low frequency settings.
Small, portable TENS devices allow you to keep the unit attached the painful area and you can turn the machine on an off as you go about your day. This is a convenient option for people with constant arthritic pain.
