TENS application for scar pain
Severe pain from the hardened connective tissue of the scar can lead to restricted movement. The symptoms usually increase when the weather changes. The application with a TENS device is ideal here. The TENS treatment can relieve the pain around the scar area by releasing endogenous pain-relieving hormones. These hormones are called endorphins. Furthermore, the healing of surgical scars can be accelerated, since TENS pain therapy promotes blood circulation in the surrounding tissue.

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.
You can use TENS therapy anywhere. It doesn't matter whether you're sitting comfortably on the sofa or in the office.
