TENS application for tension headaches
If those affected suffer from tension headaches, they usually complain about pain that wraps around the head like a band. This type of headache can be divided into episodic and chronic forms. The episodic headaches last less than 15 days a month. The pain often starts a few hours after waking up and gets worse as the day goes on. The chronic headaches last at least 15 days a month and are present regardless of the time of day. You can relieve the pain with TENS pain therapy .
The pain stimulus is not passed on to the brain by the electrical impulses from a TENS device. The stimulation current can also stimulate the body to release endorphins. These are endogenous hormones that have a pain-relieving effect. 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.
You can use TENS therapy anywhere. It doesn't matter whether you're sitting comfortably on the sofa or in the office.
