Introduction to TENS Machine

The Tens machine delivers electrical muscle stimulation that focuses only on sensory nerve endings that control pain caused by spasms and injury. Once the electronic current passes through muscles, the brain releases endorphins into the body. Endorphins reduce the pain felt by the patient. Also, the signal of the current blocks pain receptors in the brain. This aids endorphins to do their healing job better.

A Tens unit can help users to endure the pain and even get on the path to wellness. Results have been quite positive for those suffering from osteoarthritis pain.

The tens unit has been utilized widely as a pain inhibitor, especially during dental procedures. The University of Washington Orthopedics and Sports Medicine also admit that the Tens machine can also reduce inflammation of muscle fibres and even reduce nerve pain, and sciatica too.
