How TENS can manage your pain, drug-free.

If you have been searching for a natural, affordable and drug-free way to manage your pain whether it is chronic or acute, I am sure, eventually, you would come across the amazing pain relief technology of TENS therapy.

What is transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) therapy?

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a therapy that uses low voltage electrical current to provide pain relief. A TENS unit like those from ITOUCH, consists of a battery-powered device that delivers electrical impulses through electrodes placed on the surface of your skin. The electrodes are placed at or near nerves where the pain is located or at trigger points.

How does transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) work?

There are two theories on how TENS works
  • The electric current stimulates nerve cells that block the transmission of pain signals, modifying your perception of pain.
  • Nerve stimulation raises the level of endorphins, which are the body’s natural pain-killing chemicals. The endorphins then block the perception of pain.

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) device explained. 

The battery-powered TENS device from ITOUCH is about the size of a small cell phone, some evens smaller. The device comes with several sets of electrode wires and electro pads. The electrodes connect to the device at one end and are attached to electro pads at the other end.

Electrode pads with snap electrode connectors are very durable, flexible and easy to remove with no sticky residue left behind.

Each pad has an adhesive backing and is positioned on your skin in specific areas along nerve pathways in the area to be treated.

The device delivers pulses of electrical energy. Pulses can be adjusted for the intensity, duration and different massage modes.

ITOUCH devices allow you to experience TENS therapy in the comfort of your own home, with no need for a doctor, physical therapist, or acupuncturist appointment to receive TENS therapy treatments to relieve your pain.

Now you can save your money and valuable time with ITOUCH portable TENS devices.

What Conditions TENS therapy is used for?

 TENS therapy has been studied to relieve both chronic and acute pain.
Some, most common, conditions TENS has been used include:
  • Fibromyalgia (aches and pains in muscles, tendons, and joints along the spine and other parts of the body.
  • Osteoarthritis (disease of the joints).
  • Bursitis (inflammation of the fluid-filled sacs that cushion joints).
  • Labour pain.
  • Low back pain.
  • Chronic pelvic pain.
  • Tendinitis (an inflammation tendon).
  • Diabetic neuropathy (damage to the nerves that connect the brain and spinal cord).
  • Peripheral artery disease (“hardening of the arteries” that circulate blood to the body).

Benefits of TENS therapy.

TENS is a non-invasive method of pain relief. It can be used alone or with medications.
People who experience pain relief from TENS may be able to reduce their intake of pain medications, some of which can be addictive or cause adverse side effects.
ITOUCH TENS units are also convenient because they are small, portable, and relatively discrete. With battery power of up to 20 hours, people can carry a TENS unit in their pocket or clip it onto a belt to ensure that they have immediate access to pain relief throughout the day.
