TENS application for a golfer's elbow

Man holding the inside of his elbow in pain. Problems on the inside of the elbow are referred to as golfer's elbow or golfer's elbow, which can be treated with a TENS device.

Golfer's elbow, or golfer's elbow, affects the inside of the elbow and is very similar to tennis elbow, where the outside of the elbow hurts. Golfer's elbow is a form of tendonitis that causes pain. You can relieve this pain with a TENS device.

A TENS device transmits electrical impulses to the skin via electrodes, which has two effects. On the one hand, the electrical impulses can block the transmission of pain to the brain, which means that the pain may no longer be perceived. On the other hand, the TENS application can support the natural pain control mechanism of our body so that its own painkilling substances, the so-called endorphins [1], are released. TENS also promotes blood circulation[2].

TENS electrode placement for a golfer's elbow

Place the electrodes on the inside of the elbow as shown in the picture so that the pain is limited by the electrodes. For the application we recommend the 5x5 cm electrodes, which you can use universally for most types of pain.

    Circle color: Red = Electrode 1, Black = Electrode 2

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.
