TENS application for knee joint pain
The knee joint has to withstand a lot of weight every day and is exposed to enormous loads. In addition to ligament injuries caused by twisting the knee, knee joint pain can also occur under other circumstances. If you have pain in the knee joint, you should consult a doctor as a precaution, who can find out the cause of the pain. The pain you feel in the knee joint can be relieved with a TENS device without taking medication.
The TENS pain therapy prevents the nerves from transmitting the pain signals to the brain, so that you do not feel the pain. A stimulation current device also stimulates our body to release endorphins. These are endogenous pain-relieving hormones. The TENS treatment also promotes blood circulation.
Strengthening the entire leg musculature benefits the knee joint and supports pain-free movements. If you strengthen the leg muscles with EMS in addition to the TENS therapy, you can also stabilize your kneecap and the kneecap ligament.
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.
