TENS Position for Neck Pain

The neck is a crucial part of our body. It bears the head’s weight and connects it to the rest of the body through the spinal column. Several factors can cause neck pain. Poor posture, sleeping in the wrong position, or whiplash can cause strain in the neck. Other severe causes may be due to degenerative disorders like osteoarthritis and pinched nerves. Additionally, straining the neck causes stiffness or inflammation in the shoulder and down to the lower back, adding more discomfort. Undoubtedly, using Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) can help relieve chronic neck pain. The correct TENS position for neck pain is critical for effective pain alleviation.

TENS therapy is a form of electrotherapy that uses electrical stimulation on the nerves. An excellent example of an effective TENS therapy device is the wireless iTENS machine. The wireless device, in particular, employs electrode pads (wings) that send low electrical currents through the skin and nervous system. The electrical currents in the nervous system reduce the nerves’ ability to transmit pain signals to the spinal cord and brain. The appropriate TENS position for neck pain is essential mainly because of how close the machine would be to the head and other sensitive and crucial body parts and nerves.

TENS Position for Neck Pain: Instructions

With chronic nerve neck pains, the symptoms often include numbness, stiffness, and tingling sensation of the neck and may radiate to the shoulders and arms. The TENS position for neck pain is the critical factor in treating different kinds of neck pain. The pads’ placement will typically be on either side of the spine and above or beside the shoulder blades. The placing of the two electrodes would be about 5cm underneath the skull. Do not place the electrodes anywhere near the head or the throat, as the electrical currents can cause spasms and other serious injuries. Place the pads on the fleshy area of the body, avoiding the spine and bony parts of the body.

The non-invasive nature of a TENS machine is beneficial to people who seek alternative pain relief methods away from oral medications. Follow the TENS position for neck pain for effective results, or consult your physician or physical therapist first for the proper guidance on using the TENS machine for the neck and other ailments. The wireless iTENS device is the latest revolutionary way to deal with chronic pain head-on. With iTENS, the nerve fibres get reinvigorated, and the neck pain and other kinds of pain are temporarily relieved with just a push of a button.
