TENS application for arthrosis
TENS therapy to relieve pain (from arthrosis, rheumatism and arthritis) is the subject of extensive research and numerous studies. Many physiotherapists, pain centers and clinics use TENS in this context. The results show that TENS therapy can increase both the well-being and mobility of the affected joint. And with success, as the experiences of numerous arthrosis patients prove. In the meantime, stimulation current devices are not only reserved for medical practices, but a compact TENS device for pain therapy at home can also be purchased.
A stimulation current device transmits electrical impulses to the skin via electrodes, which has two effects on pain relief. The transmission of pain to the brain is blocked, which means that the pain may no longer be perceived. On the other hand, the TENS application can stimulate our body to release its own painkilling substances, the so-called endorphins. In addition, the TENS treatment also promotes blood circulation.
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.
