TENS application for headaches
A TENS device can relieve the symptoms of different types of headaches. Regardless of whether it is a headache caused by tension in the cervical spine and shoulders or other headache disorders. The stimulation current ensures a targeted massage and an increase in blood circulation in tense muscles.
In the case of primary headaches, pain-inhibiting messenger substances, the so-called endorphins, can be released through a specifically adjusted TENS application. In addition, the electrical impulses prevent the nerves from transmitting the pain signal to the brain. In these two ways, pain is relieved without the use of painkillers and medication. 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.
