TENS application for shoulder pain
Due to its functions, the shoulder joint has a very complex structure and unfortunately it is not uncommon for pain and tension to occur in everyday life. One way to relieve shoulder pain and shoulder tension without painkillers is a TENS device.
In the case of chronic shoulder pain, which can occur in rheumatic diseases, for example, the regular use of a TENS device has proven itself.
