TENS application for sciatica pain
Sciatica is the medical term for damage to the sciatic nerve with noticeable pain, some of which can also radiate into the legs. Pain in the buttocks and lumbar spine caused by sciatica can be treated with TENS pain therapy.
Regular use of electrical stimulation can help you relax muscles and reduce the intensity of pain in the area around the sciatic nerve. Furthermore, the TENS therapy can have a blood circulation-promoting effect . Pain relief through TENS is achieved by blocking the transmission of the pain signal to the brain and stimulating the body to release endorphins (the body's own painkilling messenger substances).
