Vitawells Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is a therapy that uses low-voltage electrical current for pain relief. A small, battery-powered machine about the size of a pocket radio is used, two electrodes (wires that conduct electrical current) are connected from the machine to your skin and are placed on the area of pain or at a pressure point, creating a circuit of electrical impulses that travels along nerve fibres
When the current is delivered, less pain is experienced as the electricity from the electrodes stimulates the nerves in the affected area and sends signals to the brain that block or “scramble” normal pain signals
The TENS machine can be set for different wavelength frequencies, such as a steady flow of electrical current or a burst of electrical current, and for intensity of electrical current, our Therapist will determine these settings
TENS can be used for several different conditions such as muscle, joint, or bone problems that occur with illnesses such as osteoarthritis or fibromyalgia, or for conditions such as low back pain, neck pain, tendinitis, or bursitis, sudden (acute) pain and long-lasting (chronic) pain, such as cancer pain
You are advised to seek medical advice before embarking on any Tens Pain Therapy sessions
