TENS application for calf pain
Calf pain can be felt with every step, as well as at rest or at night. The causes are quite diverse, from a torn ligament to tension in the calf muscles to sore muscles after jogging or walking. With a TENS device, you can easily relieve calf pain from home. In our blog post we have also put together more tips and tricks for calf pain.
A TENS device transmits electrical impulses to our body via electrodes on the skin. In addition to promoting blood circulation, this has two effects on pain relief. On the one hand, the impulses from the electrical stimulation device block the transmission of pain from the calf to the brain. As a result, the calf pain can be felt only slightly or not at all. In addition, treatment with TENS can stimulate the body to release endorphins, which are painkilling substances in our body.

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.
