What are the TENS Physiotherapy Side Effects?

What are the TENS Physiotherapy Side Effects? Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation or TENS is one type of electrotherapy popular for people with chronic pain. It helps relieve pain from the back, shoulders, arms, legs, and feet. TENS therapy uses electrical stimulation to target the sensory nerves to release more endorphins and block pain signals. People feel less pain and more life thanks to a TENS machine. The wireless iTENS is a TENS device with Bluetooth capability. It is a non-invasive and drug-free alternative for pain relief. 

The wireless iTENS comes with a set of wings pad connected to an electrode. The pads are placed on the skin to allow the mild electrical currents to pass through the nerves. The electrical stimulation gives a therapeutic effect by intervening the pain signals from reaching the brain. What are the TENS physiotherapy side effects? TENS is generally safe with little to no known adverse side effects. Most people use a TENS unit without any issues or difficulties. However, it may come with minor inconveniences. Some people report redness or skin irritation while using the pads. Should this happen, switch off the device first before carefully removing the electrode pads from the skin. Wash the affected area with soap and water. To avoid skin irritation, use the TENS unit within the recommended duration (20-60 minutes). iTENS pre-set modes come with automatic timers that would stop when the treatment ends. 

Possible TENS Physiotherapy Side Effects:

Some TENS physiotherapy side effects may include making you feel sleepy. It is not advisable to use TENS while driving to prevent accidents. If you’re dealing with insomnia, it is best to put the unit on before bedtime to help improve your sleeping condition. On the other hand, TENS are not advisable to be placed on the eyes, temples, head, and neck as this may cause acute hypotension or lower blood pressure. It is also not suitable for women during pregnancy and people with cancer, epilepsy, heart disease, or cardiac pacemakers. 

The use of TENS comes with minimal side effects in contrast to oral medications. iTENS has FDA approval as a safe and wireless TENS machine. The absence of wires makes it even more convenient and comfortable. As cables or leads may wear and tear over time and cause shocks, the iTENS wireless electrodes do not have that problem. You can wear it underneath the clothes while working. The possible TENS physiotherapy side effects that you would want are to find your hands itching to reach for it every time pain shows up. You may use TENS units about 2-3 times a day.
