TENS application for arm pain
In most cases, treating the arm with a TENS device leads to a rapid reduction in pain. Muscle tension or poor blood circulation can often be improved in this way. With continuous use, freedom from pain can also be achieved with chronic pain.
By stimulating the nerve tissue with TENS stimulation current, the pain stimulus is no longer passed on. Depending on the TENS treatment method, the body's own pain-relieving endorphins can also be released to combat pain.

Please note when using TENS:
The intensity should be adjusted so that it is felt as a pleasant tingling sensation. The duration of the application should be approx. 40 minutes in order to be able to achieve a lasting reduction in pain. It also makes sense to switch programs every now and then.
