TENS Therapy

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a non-invasive peripheral stimulation technique used to relieve pain..

 


TENS Therapy: What It Is

100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain. Either you or someone you know is suffering from chronic pain. Thankfully, Harvard Health states that non-drug treatments such as a TENS unit are very effective for treating pain. The typical treatments for chronic pain are medications and/or surgery. Then you have to deal with side effects from those medications, causing you more pain and more medications. The problem is, the last thing you want to experience is a life full of pain, living off medications, surgeries, and complications. You want to experience a quality of life, play with your family and not be stuck inside due to pain.

You can relax, there’s a new treatment out there that’s helping people with chronic pain. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, aka TENS Therapy is making waves (electrical ones) in alleviating some of the worst chronic pain.

Here are the top reasons why.

What Is a TENS Unit Anyways?

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation is a nonpharmacologic treatment for pain relief. Using a low voltage electrical current, it safely and effectively can reduce pain, allowing you to live a better quality of life.

The TENS unit activates sites in the spinal cord and brain stem that utilize muscarinic, opioid, and serotonin receptors. This is with regular appointments, adequate dosing, and proper intensity.

For back pain, place the TENS unit electrodes on an area of skin over where there is some pain. Electrical Impulses travel along the nerve fibers, relieving pain immediately, also creating a “tingly sensation”. There is pain relief because the unit stimulates the nerves in the spinal cord, closing a “gate” mechanism which relates to pain sensation.

Nerve Retraining

Damaged nerves are not able to send or receive signals. This leads to difficulty to move and extreme pain. This also leads to a loss of movement, due to the fact of the pain when you try and move.

Endorphins are your body’s natural painkiller, and they’re released from the stimulation of the impulses. No better way to treat pain than to utilize the bodies own painkiller.

With enough time and treatments, the brain and nerve patterns are retrained by the impulse that triggers the client’s muscle.

Reduced Inflammation

With pain comes inflammation, which in turn, causes more pain. It’s like a lose-lose situation. Thankfully the TENS unit can help with Inflammation as well.

Numerous studies have discovered that the electric impulses can reduce inflammation located deep within the muscle fibers.

No Side Effects

Living a life of pain, unfortunately, means that you now deal with more pain in order to tolerate it. Pain medications are hard on the body, there are numerous harsh side effects;

  • Constipation
  • Drowsiness
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Liver failure
  • Digestive problems
  • Respiratory depression

It is an oxymoron to take something for pain, that in turn, gives you more pain. In other cases, some people actually become resistant to their medications, causing them to be less effective.

The TENS unit has been so effective, that some people have been able to stop their pain meds completely. Unfortunately, you can not use the unit if you have a pacemaker, infusion pump or implanted defibrillator. If you are pregnant, have epilepsy, or have any heart problems whatsoever, consult your doctor before considering a TENS unit.

Unlike the Brazilian butt lift, vacuum therapy (also known as vacuotherapy) is noninvasive and tones your tush without the use of incisions. Similar to a lymphatic drainage massage, vacuum butt therapy is a massaging technique that helps lift and contour the buttocks via a suction device equipped with glass cups. After a mini massage, two small suction cups are moved over the thigh and buttocks area, manipulating the tissue, then two larger suction cups are sealed over each side of the butt for approximately 30 minutes.

The process is said to improve lymphatic drainage, stimulate the muscles, break down and shift fat deposits, and stimulate the hypodermis, all of which combine to provide increased toning effects and give the appearance of a smoother, firmer, more lifted backside. vacuum butt therapy “provide[s] instant results and further lifts the buttocks by up to 70 percent.” One session is the equivalent of 1,500 squats.
