Using TENS Arthritis Pain Relief Equipment

Arthritis is a common condition as people get older, and it is a chronic type of disease caused by the degeneration or breakdown of the joints. Its symptoms include joint pain, stiffness, or tenderness of the bones that worsens over time. There are many types of arthritis, but the most common are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is a non-invasive method to control or reduce and treat arthritis pain. You may use a TENS device as one of your cost-effective arthritis pain relief equipment.

TENS therapy is an electrotherapy method that uses low-voltage electrical impulses to stimulate the nerves to block pain. A TENS machine is a small wearable device with electrode pads that are attachable to the skin surface. The electrodes send electrical impulses to the nerves that initiate the temporary closure of the pain-gating mechanism in the spinal cord. This process blocks the transmission of pain signals to the brain, making the body feel less sensitive to pain. It is a well-known form of treatment that relieves many acute and chronic pain types, including pain from degenerative diseases. The iTENS is a wireless TENS machine controllable via Bluetooth and is the ideal arthritis pain relief equipment.

Arthritis Pain Relief Equipment: Using a TENS Unit

Intense arthritic pain can interfere with one’s regular daily routine and negatively impact their overall quality of life. Using TENS as arthritis pain relief equipment effectively relieves pain symptoms, tenderness, swelling, redness, and decreased range of motion. The pain is commonly felt in the hands, hips, knees, feet, and lower back. Place the electrode pads around or on the parallel sides of the joint. Turn the unit on and begin the stimulation at the lowest available frequency level. Slowly adjust the settings until you feel a tingly sensation. If you have arthritis at multiple locations, start with the most painful point and work on the following areas. Using the iTENS is the ideal self-treatment device mainly because it already has pre-set settings ready for use.

Use the wireless iTENS for more convenient pain relief. The wireless wing pads of the iTENS are easily attachable to almost any part of the body. There are no messy wires to limit or obstruct movement. The advantage of a TENS machine is that it is safe and drug-free. You can use TENS as arthritis pain relief equipment about 3-4 times a day. However, the TENS pads are not advisable on the temples, eyes, throat, or anywhere in the head. Furthermore, keep TENS use away from pregnant women, people with pacemakers, cancers, epilepsy, or heart disease patients.
