TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) Therapy

TENS

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a therapy that uses low-voltage electrical current for pain relief.

You do TENS with a small, battery-powered machine about the size of a pocket radio. Usually, you connect two electrodes (wires that conduct electrical current) from the machine to your skin. The electrodes are often placed on the area of pain or at a pressure point, creating a circuit of electrical impulses that travels along nerve fibers.
When the current is delivered, some people experience less pain. This may be because the electricity from the electrodes stimulates the nerves in an affected area and sends signals to the brain that block or “scramble” normal pain signals. Another theory is that the electrical stimulation of the nerves may help the body to produce natural painkillers called endorphins, which may block the perception of pain….http://sundardasnaturopathy.com/pain%20treatment.htm

    Thanks for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research on this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more clear from this post.

    I’m very glad to see such great information being shared freely out there.

    Fantastic site you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics discussed in this article? I’d really love to be a part of community where I can get responses from other experienced individuals that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Many thanks!

      We cannot refer you to a particular website because the range of topics I cover is significant and the opinions expressed are mine. However you can always Google for the required information. Use the following format. , ,
      Eg: You came across an article I did on natural medicine for allergies. You want another blog, simply Google Natural medicine, Allergies, Blog
