This week i want to talk to you about Tens machines! After doing loads of research into the company and quality of their products I have started stocking tens machines by TensCare.
Let me tell you a little about TENS machines first, what they are and how they work for pain management.
What are TENS Machines used for?
TENS pain relief machines are used for a wide variety of pain, such as back pain, period pains, arthritis and sports injuries.
What Should You Do Before Trying TENS?
If you are thinking about trying a TENS pain relief machine, the first thing your should do is consult with your doctor. They can advise on other pain relief methods you may like to try, instead of or in conjunction with TENS. These can include physiotherapy or a referral to a pain clinic.
If you choose to go ahead with TENS treatment, a pain specialist may be able to loan you a machine to try out at home. Alternatively you can buy a TENS machine. HealthCare4All has a range of high quality TENS machines on offer, which provide effective pan relief.
How to use a TENS pain relief machine?
While the machine is turned off, attach the pads on either side of the painful area, avoiding irritated or broken skin, or any numb areas. Switch the machine on, and increase the strength of the electrical signal ntil it is strong but comfortable. When you are finished using the TENS pain relief machine, switch off and remove the pads.
WenMD recommends not using a TENS machine while you are driving or operating machinery, during pregnancy, or in the shower or bath. They also advise not to change the use of your machine without consulting your doctor, and that you clean and check your pads regularly!
