|What is a TENS Unit?
A TENS Unit is one of several kinds of electrotherapy devices that use very small doses of electric current to promote natural pain relief. The word TENS, sometimes abbreviated as T.E.N.S., stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator.
The TENS machine itself is a small electronic device that delivers current through electrodes placed on the skin. Unlike systemic drugs, which affect the entire body, electrotherapy targets pain exactly where it occurs.
A TENS unit is simple and easy to use and compact provide quick and dependable pain relief at work, home or play.
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS Units) is a highly effective treatment for chronic and acute pain. It is used extensively and recommended by sports coaches, physiotherapy, pain clinics, doctors and other medical practitioners. A TENS unit will relieve pain, you should notice immediate results, and you can leave on for hours a day and for many the relief is dramatic.
There is nothing “magic” about Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS). TENS machines are intended to be used to relieve pain. The TENS unit sends comfortable impulses through the skin that stimulate the nerve (or nerves) in the treatment area. In many cases, this stimulation will greatly reduce or eliminate the pain sensation the patient feels. Pain relief varies by individual patient, mode selected for therapy, and the type of pain. In many patients, the reduction or elimination of pain lasts longer than the actual period of stimulation (sometimes as much as three to four times longer). In others, pain is only modified while stimulation actually occurs.
Many of the following painful medical conditions can be alleviated with our products:- Back pain, Peripheral Nerve Injuries, Shingles, Headaches and Migraines, Cancer pain, Trigeminal Neuralgia, Phantom Limp Pain, sports injuries, Sciatica, Aching Joints, Rheumatoid and Osteo-arthritis, Post Operative Pain, Muscular pain, Whiplash and Neck injury, and many more.
Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS): TENS unit can be used by patient at home for relieving pain on a long term basis. It allows the user to adjust the intensity of the stimulation, select high frequency stimulation or low frequency stimulation. High frequency stimulation is called conventional which is tolerable for hours but results in pain relief for shorter period of time. Whereas, low frequency stimulation is called acupuncture- like which is uncomfortable and tolerable for 20 to 30 minutes but results in pain relief for longer period of time. TENS unit users can also use electrode placements by placing the electrodes over the painful area or over the nerve supplying the painful area or even on the opposite side of the body.
How Do TENS Units Work?
Electrical impulses are transmitted from an electrical device to the surface of the skin. The unit is connected to the surface of the skin with electrode pads. Units range in size and amount of power output. Some are small and battery powered, while others are hand held, or even desk-top size. Wearable models are also available.
We offer a hand-held unit, the two-channel TENS unit. These dual-channel units have modulation, burst and standard modes. Features include: variable pulse-width (40-260), variable pulse-rate (2-150) and a treatment timer (30 minutes, 60 minutes, and constant). This unit comes complete with a 9-volt battery, lead wires, initial supply of electrodes, and a carrying case. A treatment timer is also available on some units.
Athletic trainers and home-health professionals also appreciate the powerful capabilities that this compact unit delivers. Larger units are available for medical professionals; these units are portable.
Why Does TENS Work?
There are two theories that explain why this technology works as an alternate therapy for acute and chronic pain. The first is the Gateway Theory. Its premise is that the electrical stimulation blocks pain that is transmitted through nerve endings.
The second theory is the Endorphin-release Theory. These electrical currents trigger the body to produce endorphins which help the body's nerve system to combat pain. This type of therapy produces, and provides, thousands of individuals with relief from back and neck pain, and recovery from surgery and injury, without the need for prescription drugs.
"TENS units are an affordable alternative for those suffering pain," Maroney explained. "No matter which theory you or your medical professional believes in, this technology is becoming more mainstream in the U.S.; it has developed a reputation as an effective alternative therapy."
For many, living with acute and chronic pain
is an everyday battle. Most people suffering from these types of pain have
only been given the choice of drugs to free them from their affliction.
Current TENS technology is based on the research of physicians, Ronald Melzack and Patrick D. Walls in a study titled: "Pain Mechanism: A New Theory."
The use of this technology is broadly applied in many areas that include: sports medicine, chiropractic care, and rehabilitation centers. Senior living communities utilize the therapy and it can also be used at home.
