The painful tension of the calf muscles can be relieved by a TENS application to the calf. This also causes a better blood circulation and thus a good supply of nutrients to the leg muscles. Also in sports injuries, strains, contusions and bruises, TENS can cause a rapid improvement.

The amperage should be set so that it is perceived as a pleasant tingling sensation. The duration of the application should be about 40 minutes to achieve a lasting reduction of pain. It is also useful to change the programs from time to time to give the body a new stimulus and to increase the effect of the TENS treatment.
EMS additionally relaxes the muscles
After the TENS treatment, you can use programs P29 or P30 to loosen the muscles to release tension. Adjust the intensity so that you feel slight muscle twitches. You can use the relaxation for 10 to 20 minutes.
