TENS application for tennis elbow
Tennis elbow, or tennis elbow, is when the outside of the elbow is inflamed. Swelling occurs at the tendon attachments. Those affected can no longer fully stretch the elbow joint and there is a feeling of weakness in the wrist. The strength in the hand decreases and lifting objects or grasping them causes pain. Tennis elbow or tennis elbow is also known as epicondylitis. To protect yourself from overloading the forearm muscles, you can use EMS training to strengthen the muscles.
Using a TENS unit on tennis elbow can help relieve the pain. The adhesive electrodes transmit the stimulation current impulses to the nerves. This prevents the nerves from transmitting the pain stimulus to the brain. Another effect of electrical stimulation therapy is the stimulation of the body to release endorphins. These are endogenous pain-relieving hormones. In addition, blood circulation can be promoted by a TENS treatment.

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.
