A Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator (TENS) is a battery-run machine that relieves pain. TENS was designed to help reduce muscle pain, chronic or otherwise. Similar to the Electric Muscle Stimulator (EMS), both these devices incorporate low voltage electrical impulses to abate the pain. While EMS causes the muscle to contract, TENS stimulates the nerves. TENS has been observed by many to be the more effective of the two.

How does TENS unit work?

TENS Machine UK provides an easily portable Tens machine with leads connected to pads called electrodes. These electrodes are put directly on the body where the pain is being experienced. The machine has safe variations in voltage which can be adjusted by the user. Once you are happy with the settings, the device sends electrical impulses through the electrodes. You may feel a tingling sensation in the region where the electrodes are placed. This current then stimulates the nerve pathways and reduces the pain signals that are being sent to the brain, hence reducing pain. Nerve stimulation also helps in the production of endorphins, which are the body's natural painkillers.

  • Portability: The TENS device is very small and easy to maintain. Since it runs on battery and it can fit in your bag or packet, it is easy to carry around. It can be effortlessly taken from one place to another. The machine, therefore, can always be available when unpredictable pain occurs.

  • No Side Effects: People suffering from pain usually tend to get used to steroids or other anti-inflammatory medications. Such medicines may provide relief but this comes at a cost. Most of them have side effects which can further worsen the patient’s condition. TENS has no side effects whatsoever which makes it much safer than other options.

  • Instant Relief: Once the electrodes have been placed, it will not take long for the device to works its magic. For patients suffering from chronic pain, instant relief is rare. This is one of the major advantages of using TENS.

  • Long Usage: Every time there is a sensation of pain the device can be used since it has no side effects. There is no fear of addiction. It can be used for long periods of time without worrying, as long as the safety precautions are kept in mind.

  • Strengthening The Nerves: Pain is sometimes caused when the nerves fall short in fulfilling their tasks. This occurs when the nerve is damaged and it is not able to receive or send signals. TENS gives electric impulses which help in correcting the nerve signalling patterns. Prolonged usage may even help reverse nerve damage.

  • Affordable: Unlike similar machines previously, TENS is available to everyone. It is not beyond the reach of ordinary people and is cheap enough for everyone to buy.

  • Reduces Inflammation: Inflammation usually occurs when there is a physical injury or in conditions like sciatica. Such pain is difficult to heal with medication and can be unbearable. TENS first reduces the inflammation which in turn takes care of the pain.

  • Massages: The fusion of TENS and EMS and options like inbuilt messaging has given these machines additional advantages. By changing the setting on the remote this device can even turn into a massager that has different speeds. This helps loosen the muscles and reduce pain.
