TENS application for ankle pain
A TENS device can provide quick relief for ankle pain. Even in everyday life, ankle injuries sometimes occur, often due to twisting of the ankle. Because the ankle consists of the shin, fibula, and ankle bone, the pain radiates from the foot into the leg. Ligament injuries, bruising, swelling, sprains or strains occur, which quickly improve with TENS treatment. TENS can also relieve pain in chronic ankle pain .
A TENS device transmits electrical impulses to the skin via electrodes, which leads to the release of endogenous, pain-relieving endorphins and blocks the transmission of pain to the brain. In addition, the TENS treatment 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.
