• Athlete Injuries: How Tens Unit can Heal Them

    A TENS unit, which stands for transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, is a small battery operated machine that makes use of electrical current to decrease body and muscle pain. Electrodes are kept at the affected area and then an electrical current is passed through the electrodes. The underlying skin and muscle is affected by the tingling sensation, disrupting pain signals in the process.

However, internal pain takes care of itself, but if the pain stays for longer periods of time then you should consider consuming a pain killer to relieve the pain. Alternatively, if the pain does not go away, you can try a Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) Machine.

    A TENS Machine is a portable, pocket-sized, battery-powered device. It uses mild, safe electrical signals to help control pain and delivers the electrical signal to the body through a connection of a lead wire

    Introduction to Tens Machine

    The TENS device is similar to an EMS system, though their nature of working differs from each other considerably. The Tens machine produces electrical muscle stimulation that focuses only sensory nerve endings that control pain caused by spasms and injury. With the help of electronic current passing through muscles, the brain releases endorphins into the body to reduce the pain felt by the patient. Also, the current blocks signal to pain receptors in the brain about the hurt caused to the muscles. This aids endorphins to do their healing job better.

    The Tens machine was earlier found only in medical institutes owing to their high price. But now the Tens machine can be purchased for different therapy situations and used at home too.

     

    The Importance of a Tens Unit in Relieving Pain

    From allaying pain to nerve retraining, a Tens unit can help users to bear the pain and even get on the path to wellness.

    How Can Ultrasound Help Me?

    Ultrasound increases local blood flow which helps to reduce local swelling and chronic inflammation and according to some studies, promote bone fracture healing. The intensity of the ultrasound can be adjusted depending on the desired effect.

    The most common conditions treated with ultrasound include soft tissue injuries such as tendonitis non-acute joint swelling and muscle spasm. Most muscle and ligament injuries can benefit from therapeutic ultrasound.

  • What is an Ultrasound Treatment?
    What is an Ultrasound Treatment?

    A typical ultrasound treatment will take from 5-7 minutes. During the treatment the head of the ultrasound probe is kept in constant motion.

    Some conditions treated with ultrasound include tendonitis non-acute joint swelling and muscle spasm.

  • How Does an Ultrasound Work?
    How Does an Ultrasound Work?

    The ultrasound waves are generated by a piezoelectric effect caused by the vibration of a quartz ceramic disk within the head of the probe. The ultrasound waves that pass through the skin cause a vibration of the local soft tissues. This vibration or cavitation can cause a localised deep heating effect but no sensation of heat will be felt.

    How to operate your ultrasound?

    Before using your portable ultrasound massager, apply a generous layer of conductive gel onto the treatment area. Then place the ultrasonic head onto the skin and turn on. Move the ultrasonic massager in a small, circular motion using firm pressure, avoiding bony areas on the body. The area you are treating should be about 2 inches in diameter. Always keep the head of the ultrasonic device flat against your skin and do not lift the unit off the treatment area during application.
    As always, read your specific ultrasound model’s manual for complete instructions on usage.
