TENS application for bruxism
The technical term for teeth grinding is bruxism. Mostly at night, but also during the day, we grind our teeth. This often happens subconsciously and is triggered by stress, for example, but the causes can be very diverse.
The consequences are often jaw pain, but teeth grinding can also have consequences for the entire body, such as headaches and back pain. A diagnosis should be made by a doctor who can draw up an individual treatment plan with you. In order to avoid grinding your teeth, bite splints are often made, which are mainly worn while you sleep.
Strong painkillers are often used to treat the pain that follows from teeth grinding. However, this should not be a long-term solution. With a TENS device, such as our TENS EMS combination device STIM-PRO X9, you can not only relieve pain of all kinds without having to take medication, but you can also relax and massage your jaw muscles.
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.
