How does Electrotherapy work for Pain Relief?

How to use an Electrotherapy Device?

Electrotherapy units comprise a battery-powered device connected to adhesive electrode pads through wires. These pads are sticky and adhere to the skin. The electrode pads must be placed on the body area that needs treating. When the device is turned on, a mild electric current is transmitted through the wires and the electrode to that area of the body. Newer models are one-piece units without wires. Electrodes and battery power are combined into a single unit designed to be worn on the back, arm, leg or anywhere on the body. They are unnoticeable and can be worn outdoors.

What is TENS Electrotherapy?

TENS or Transcutaneous Electrical Neural (or Nerve) Stimulation, units are electrotherapy devices. Through TENS pain relief, electrodes placed on the area of pain stimulate the nerves, blocking other signals of pain. TENS units help in the stimulation, contraction and relaxation of muscle fibers, increasing blood flow and encouraging muscle growth. 

 

Using TENS unit in an area associated with nerve problem can help block pain and stimulate circulation to promote healing. These devices are found to help the body produce Beta-endorphins – which are pain-fighting endorphins.
