A transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) machine is an effective alternative to taking painkiller medications. TENS machines are portable, battery-operated units that are worn on the body. Tens machines send electrical pulses from the box to the skin through wires attached to sticky pads. They can ease many types of pain - without medication or side-effects. In addition to TENS machines we also have a large selection of Magic Wand Massagers and numerous products to help out with back pain and tight muscles. Get your rid of your pain naturally and reap the rewards of benefits blooming throughout your life. It is believed that TENS machines provide relief in the following ways:
Sensory Level Stimulation: per the Gate Control theory of pain, electrical inputs from a TENS machine interferes with pain signal transmissions by blocking the neural pathway that delivers pain signals to the senses.
Motor Level Stimulation: this level of TENS machine stimulation is believed to cause the body to release its own opiate-like substances, thus relieving pain naturally.
Electrotherapy devices like TENS machines are typically used in tandem with other treatments, rather than as a standalone treatment. For example, for those undergoing physical therapy, electrotherapy has been shown to diminish pain sufficiently to allow for a greater range of mobility.
As the potential risks and side effects of opioid medications have become clear, electrotherapy is growing in popularity as a viable pain relief option using a method of healing that goes back to ancient times.
TENS machines: useful for people with chronic back pain, knee joint arthritis and other types of long-term musculoskeletal pain. In the early stages of labour TENS machines are often used in Australia, especially for pregnant women taking care of themselves while at home. Many people who already own TENS machines also report effective relief from migraine headaches, period pains, and other such maladies.
