TENS application for migraines
There are numerous different forms of treatment against migraine attacks, one of which is less well known is electrotherapy with a TENS device. The use of TENS stimulation current therapy can be an effective, pain-relieving solution for the treatment of migraines.
Low-intensity electrical impulses are generated by the TENS device and transmitted to the nerve fibers in the pain zone. The electrical stimulation of the nerves has an immediate effect. The stimulation current blocks the transmission of the pain signal to the brain and headaches are relieved. This mechanism of action, generated by a current of high frequency and low intensity, is suitable for acute and local pain. It is therefore particularly suitable for the treatment of migraine headaches. Furthermore, with a stimulation current device, the body can be stimulated to release endorphins and also promote 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.
