How can a small TENS unit like iTENS wireless TENS machine alleviate pain? A Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) device emits mild electrical impulses through its adhesive electrode pads to the skin into the nerves. The iTENS wireless TENS machine targets the sensory nerves with electrical stimulation to block pain signals from reaching the brain from the spinal cord.
The Gate Control Theory of Pain Management is the overarching concept that encumbers this pain relief methodology. This theory states that thru TENS electrotherapy, the neural gates located in the central nervous system can be closed using a TENS machine. Moreover, since the brain does not receive pain signals, it cannot transmit them throughout the body. Thus, the body will therefore feel less pain. Additionally, TENS therapy also aids in releasing endorphins, which act as our natural painkillers. Hence, this small TENS unit available at iTENS Australia can deliver a significant positive impact even for chronic pain sufferers.
