Buying a TENS machine - Find the suitable TENS machine for your requirements
TENS machine for nerve stimulation
Widespread diseases like back pain, neck tension, rheumatism or arthrosis could affect all of us. Even in younger years many people suffer from limitations of the locomotor system and don’t know how to deal with it. Taking painkillers on a regular basis can help you, but is not recommendable in the long-term.
Are you suffering from these symptoms or diseases and you are looking for natural ways to relieve pain effectively and without medication? Without side effects (when applied correctly)? Then you should buy a TENS machine, which helps you to relieve many types of pain and, when applied correctly, without side effects.
TENS machines work with stimulation current, but are harmless. During and right after the treatment the pain transmission is blocked and the blood circulation is improved. Furthermore a TENS machine can help you to reduce stress by supporting the body to release endorphins.
These stimulation current devices are suitable for a lot of rehab purposes and because of that you probably will find some of these devices in rehabilitation clinics, physiotherapy practices or at your doctor. If you buy a TENS machine , you don’t have to leave the house every time to see a doctor or physiotherapist. Instead you can relieve your pain fast and gently at home and on top of that in the most cases it’s cheaper than the co-payment for external treatments.
Our TENS machine recommendations
The application of a TENS machine at home is recommended for several pains and problems.
- Neck tensions - To our TENS application for neck pain
- Back pain - To our TENS application for back pain
- Rheumatism & Arthrosis - To our TENS application for arthrosis
- Joint pain - To our TENS application for knee joint pain
- Arm pain - To our TENS application for arm pain
TENS machine application for arthrosis and rheumatism
These diseases affect the joints, joint capsules, tendons, bones or muscles. The results are strong pain. Treatment with stimulation current can have positive effects and in contrast to medication has no side effects, when it's applied correctly. Place the electrode pads on the area where you feel the pain. You will feel a tingling sensation on your skin, which covers the pain. Your body will release endorphins, the pain transmission to the brain will be blocked and you will feel better.
Even when no more pain is felt you can continue with the TENS treatment. The frequency will be setted lower, which stimulates the nerves & the human tissue smooth. The affected body parts will be better supported with oxygen and nutrients and the blood circulation will be improved. Inflammations will be reduced. Your long-term effects: less pain and higher quality of life.
TENS against knee pain
Many people suffer from knee pain. It’s not surprising,because the knee joint is stressed heavily in everyday life. The consequences are acute or chronic pain, a heavy strain. A TENS machine is the ideal solution: the nerves will be stimulated, the blood circulation improves and the pain transmission will be blocked. After a few treatments you should feel a significant improvement.
TENS against neck pain and tension
If you feel pain in the area of the neck, incorrect posture might be the reason. Sitting in front of the computer or the desk for hours results in painful tensions, which reach from the shoulder to the back. But you’re not powerless. With the help of a TENS machine you can counteract painful tensions permanently. After buying a TENS EMS machine you can relieve your pain without medication and building muscles at the same time.
TENS machine application for circulatory disturbances
You suffer from circulatory disturbances, for example in the feet or the hands, which is why your hands and feet are always cold? This can also be treated effectively with a TENS machine. In general TENS improves the blood circulation and the muscle as well as the human tissue is better supported with oxygen and nutrients.

What is a TENS/EMS machine?
If you are considering buying a TENS machine, you should choose a TENS EMS combo machine. With TENS you can stimulate the nerves to relieve pain. With EMS you can build muscles to prevent injuries and pain and also to become stronger. Because of that our recommendation is to buy a TENS machine with an additional EMS function, like our combo machine STIM-PRO X9. Here you can read more about TENS in combination with EMS.
