Pain is an indication that something is wrong with our bodies. We perceive pain differently. When our body aches, it demands our attention. Some pains are mild and go away quickly, while some are deep and recurring. A pulsating pain feels like an unpleasant pounding or throbbing sensation on a group of muscles or nerves. Pulse pain can happen anywhere in the body and at random times. It is sometimes hard to know when it will hit, and it is too late by the time we act. Luckily, Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation, like the wireless iTENS, can induce pulse pain relief.
Pulse pain can be related to elevated stress and anxiety or a symptom of a more serious health condition. Pain in the neck can mean pinched nerves. Pulse pain in the leg can mean sciatic pain. Lastly, pulse pain in the muscles can be muscle spasms. The TENS treatment relieves mild to severe pain in the neck, arms, shoulder, back, knees, and feet. TENS can also ease post-operatic pain and pain from conditions like arthritis, fibromyalgia, and sciatica. Using TENS for pulse pain relief is safe and non-invasive. The TENS machine sends out a series of electrical impulses to the nerves to release more endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers. TENS lessens the pulsing and the overall sensation of pain.
Pulse Pain Relief: TENS Machine Instructions
Pulse pain relief through a TENS device reduces pain as they happen. The iTENS’ set of wireless electrode pads are conveniently attachable to almost anywhere in the body. Place your TENS pads around the area where the most pulsing sensation is. The electrode pads enable the electrical currents to pass through the skin and stimulate the nerves to block the pain. Set your TENS intensity level from the lowest frequency and slowly work your way up. As you increase the intensity level, you will feel a tingly sensation. The electrical pulses are intense but not uncomfortable. Find the right level where you feel most relieved of pain. There should be no muscle contractions while the unit is working. It is also safe to use as frequently as needed.
Using TENS for pulse pain relief is highly recommended by physical therapists and pain specialists. TENS can be a standalone pain treatment or a complementary therapy to more intensive therapies (like exercise). However, do not use TENS if you are pregnant, have cancer, epilepsy, or a cardiac pacemaker in your body. iTENS has FDA approval as a safe wireless TENS device for pain relief. Its Bluetooth connectivity allows for more convenient and effective pain management. Furthermore, try visiting a doctor or physiotherapist and ask how TENS can effectively help with your pain.
