TENS application for hip pain
The use of a TENS device on the hip offers quick help for relieving tension. The muscle stimulation by the electrical impulses of the TENS treatment often helps to reduce pain soon. The application is also useful for chronic pain.
Depending on the setting of the parameters on the TENS device, either the transmission of pain through the nerve cords is interrupted or there is a release of pain-relieving endogenous hormones, the endorphins. By stimulating blood flow and calming nerves, you can take targeted action against pain. Thus, TENS is a valuable and fast-acting pain treatment for hip problems.
