Where to Get a Machine for Pain Relief

Chronic pain management is difficult and time-consuming. Meanwhile, reducing pain and discomfort can take time and effort. There is much to accomplish between doctor’s appointments, massage therapists, professional acupuncturists, and physical therapists. In some cases, you must also take the medications the doctors prescribe. In addition to a balanced diet and exercise, stress-relieving habits are also recommended. Managing stress levels can also help in reducing chronic pain. Thus, it is understandable how difficult it is to cope and deal with these circumstances. An appropriate machine for pain relief will hugely impact coping with chronic pain. 

On the other hand, over-the-counter pain relievers have their benefits. Many people, however, have firsthand experience with the detrimental side effects of orally ingested medications. As a result, over-the-counter pain relievers are rarely the most excellent option for pain treatment nowadays. The effects of pain medicines are just temporary. Consider using the iTENS device for pain relief if you are concerned with those side effects and want to avoid using oral medication. Imagine having a portable pain-relieving device with you at all times. You can easily manage the pain and get to work right away when discomfort becomes unbearable. A mobile electrotherapy device can accomplish this. As a result, the groundbreaking iTENS TENS machine for pain relief is available at iTENS Australia. This device is like having a pain therapist with you wherever you go. 

What is a TENS Machine?

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is a technique for stimulating the nerves through the skin. It is a type of electrotherapy that uses tiny electrical impulses to relieve pain. A TENS machine for pain relief is a portable, battery-powered device that generates low electric currents for electrotherapy treatment. The electrical currents it generates pass via the electrode pads attached to it, which are adhesive. Furthermore, these devices’ pain management therapies can help replace traditional pain management techniques such as oral medicines. As a result, electrotherapy is more effective than using ice or hot packs, and it is also safer than using painkillers.

Medical professionals have been using TENS machines for pain relief to help patients manage chronic pain for a long time. The device’s basic premise has been around for thousands of years. Electric eels were used in ancient Greece to alleviate pain and improve blood circulation. Likewise, the modern TENS pain treatment device follows the same principle. It uses electrodes attached to the skin and transmits low-frequency currents through the body to assist pain signals from reaching the brain. Your brain absorbs tingling sensations from the electric currents, not pain

How Does a TENS Machine for Pain Relief Work?

There are two main theories on how a TENS machine for pain relief work that medical professionals accept; these theories are: 

  • The Gate Control Theory of Pain – According to this theory, TENS interferes with and inhibits pain signals from reaching the brain at a high pulse rate of about 90 to 130 Hz. Furthermore, the idea suggests that the central nervous system contains a gating mechanism (specifically the spinal cord). When this “gate” is open, pain impulses are free to travel through and reach the brain. However, when electrotherapy is used, these neural pathways or gates collapse, preventing pain sensations. 
  • Endorphin Production – TENS, according to this second theory, causes the body to release endorphins at a lower pulse rate of 2 to 5 Hz. The body’s natural painkillers are endorphins. These substances have morphine-like properties. As a result, it relieves pain by preventing pain signals from reaching the brain. As a result, higher endorphin production boosts a person’s mood and gives an overall sense of well-being. Medical professionals refer to this natural substance as the “feel good” or “happy” hormone. 

With this information, utilising a TENS machine for pain relief will provide the user with an excellent option for pain management. It will also help relax muscles and increase blood flow throughout the body. Furthermore, being able to manage pain efficiently and effectively can be achieved through a TENS machine.  

Benefits of a TENS Machine for Pain Relief 

TENS therapy is a non-invasive, drug-free, and natural way of pain management. The stimulation caused by the electrical impulses can also help to reduce muscle pain and induce relaxation. As a result, bodybuilders can use this device as part of a post-workout routine to treat muscular soreness. Furthermore, it has few to no adverse effects. TENS therapy may allow people to reduce their reliance on pain medications, which can have harmful side effects. When using TENS machines for TENS electrotherapy, no extensive preparation is required. There are various advantages to using a TENS machine for pain relief. A person can experience this by utilising a portable electrotherapy device. One of the TENS machine’s goals is to treat pain while you are on the move. TENS electrotherapy is a pain management technique that can help with acute and chronic pain. Such as:

Also, a TENS machine for pain relief is effective for different pain-causing health conditions like: 

  • Arthritis 
  • Bursitis 
  • Endometriosis 
  • Fibromyalgia 
  • Sciatica 
  • Tendinitis 
  • Adhesive Capsulitis 
  • Multiple Sclerosis 
  • Diabetic Neuropathy 

Is a TENS Machine for Pain Relief Safe? 

A TENS machine for pain relief is generally safe and provides no adverse side effects, unlike oral medications. Moreover, the iTENS electrotherapy device from iTEMS Australia has FDA clearance, assuring users and potential buyers that it meets the requirements to be a medical device for personal use. It has also passed all necessary tests to ensure that it is safe, effective, and dependable. However, users should remember that a TENS machine cannot be used in all situations, as with any medical device. Between TENS therapy sessions, 20-minute rests are recommended. Furthermore, avoid using the device when: 

  • Sleeping 
  • Showering, bathing or if near wet areas 
  • Driving 
  • Operating heavy machinery 
  • Pregnant (but not in labour) 
  • Epileptic 
  • Dealing with cancer  
  • You have heart conditions 
  • Implanted with electrical or metal implants 

Additionally, considering electrode pad placement is vital. A TENS machine for pain relief is more effective when pads are placed correctly. Avoid putting the pads in: 

  • Rashes or open wounds 
  • Swollen, red, infected or irritated skin 
  • Cancerous wounds 
  • Any portion of your face or head 
  • Any part of your throat 
  • Directly on your backbone
