With the increasing convenience of lifestyles, simple and effective TENS products are becoming more and more popular. People do not need to go out, just lie on the sofa and enjoy the services of TENS.
But,there are also many people who do not know about it. What exactly does a TENS as small and portable as a smartphone do? Let us give you a brief introduction.
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is a non-invasive, drug-free method of controlling pain. It uses tiny electrical impulses sent through the skin to nerves to modify your pain perception. This electrical impulse stimulates your body to produce endorphins，which are one of the body's natural chemicals called neurotransmitters. Endorphins are released when the body is in pain or stress is occurring. Endorphins help reduce pain and lead to feelings of euphoria, modulation of appetite, the release of sex hormones, and enhanced immune response.
Generally speaking, it helps you relieve pain without the use of or in unison with pain medication.
Discovered by research, there are many patients with body cramps who would choose TENS devices to relieve body pain. In order to treat these cramps, TENS machine technology is considered as an important technique.
We also obtained the following common user groups through research and investigation:
people with sciatica
Various chronic pain groups
intervertebral disc herniation
Pelvic Floor Dysfunction
Moreover, with the increasing prevalence of cancer and other chronic diseases, the population living with chronic pain is also increasing. These increasing prevalence of chronic diseases are likely to support the growth of this market. Additionally, with the growing technological advantages, the global population has witnessed awareness about TENS devices since the past one to two years.
Of course, certain cases call for avoiding using a TENS unit because you are electrically stimulating your body. They consist of:
Anyone with heart problems.
Anyone with a pacemaker or other electronic or metal implant.
The difference between TENS and EMS
How TENS units vary from EMS units is one of the most often asked questions. Electrical muscle stimulation is referred to as EMS. Both provide electrical impulses to the user through the use of electrodes and contain buttons with a similar structure and operation.
The purpose for which TENS and EMS machines are utilized differs. TENS machines treat both acute and chronic pain. EMS units are utilized in training programs for muscle building, recovery, muscle relaxation, and cosmetic muscle toning.
A TENS device is for anyone looking for a natural remedy for either acute or chronic pain.
And a person wanting to gain muscle as part of a training regimen is the target audience for an EMS unit.
Simple steps to use TENS Unit:
- Clean up painful areas that require relaxation.
- Connect the lead wire to a pair of pads and the device.
- Stick the patch on a clean spot.
- Turn on the physiotherapy device.
- Select the channel and mode used, then adjust the intensity. If you are using it for the first time, you can start with the lowest intensity and gradually get used to it.
- Set the usage time.
