When you are suffering because of some kind of pain you know how difficult it can be to function. When your job is in a field where you cannot afford to be in pain then it makes it all the worse.
Those in construction, for example, cannot afford to have back, shoulder, arm, or knee pain because they are using these joints and muscles on a regular basis as part of their work. A person who sits at a computer desk cannot afford to have arthritis limiting their effectiveness. A person who stands on their feet a lot, like a nurse, cannot afford to have pain in their back, knees, or feet causing them to have limited effectiveness. It is too much to bear and so they need a remedy that will help them to get back to work quickly and effectively.
For many, the remedy is to take some kind of pain reliever, but that is not really a solution. Not only is this just a band-aid that means you are masking the problem, but not actually doing anything about it, but it also means that you are taking something that could actually make your functioning at your work even worse. You can’t have a doped up nurse or construction worker, that simply does not work.
Getting Real Relief
For many, what they are finding is that the use of an electric stimulus can really help to relieve the pain they are enduring and actually help to fix the problem they are battling. These machines are truly amazing because they work with the body to help bring about a way to feel so much better while also aiding in the cure. These machines increase blood flaw, help muscles and nerves to relax, and bring about a sense of relief and relaxation to painful areas. It is truly a marvel.
The way these devices work is quite impressive. You place the electrode pads on an area where there is pain or aches, like your knees, back, wrist, or feet, and then choose the setting you want to use to bring about relief. The device then emits an electric pulse that helps to release contracting muscles, relaxing the muscles, while at the same time it relaxes nerves as well so that you do not feel the pain as before.
The best part about these devices is that they are battery operated. That means that they are quite portable, so if you are feeling pain at work you can simply apply the electrodes during your break and give yourself a 10-15 treatment while you relax reading the newspaper. For those who may be a little more stationary, you can even apply it while you work. The battery pack on many of these devices can last up to 12 hours, so you can use it for as long as you would like to help relieve pain and stress.
Finding that You Can Have It Your Way
There are two kinds of devices that people use to help them with this problem. They are the Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation(TENS) device and the Electronic Muscle Stimulation (EMS) device. Each works a little differently. The TENS device looks to directly affect the nerves. Frequently, the reason that a person is still feeling pain is because the nerves have not stopped sending a signal. This device kind of resets the nerve endings, giving your brain a break so that it can relax. With this stimulus not being sent, the area that is painful, can relax more and the person will not feel the pain anymore. This can lead to a much more enjoyable situation.
The EMS device works directly with the muscles. It sends an electric pulse that causes the muscles to contract. This stops the muscles from becoming atrophied from overuse and will bring about a great sense of relief. It also increases circulation, allowing the body to use its natural remedies to bring relief.
The TENS EMS device is the best of both worlds. This device combines the two pulses into one, giving a person the ability to work with both the muscles and nerves at the same time. This means that in a short period of time both the muscles and nerves in the painful area can be rest so that they are not causing the person pain anymore. Nerves and muscles relax eventually and the blood flows more freely, bringing about a great deal of healing and relief. The best part is that you can do all of this on your own.
