Regain Your Flexibility With Trumedic TENS Units
All TENS units are devices that use small amounts of electric current to help reduce and manage chronic pain. They are compact electrotherapy devices which deliver the current through electrode pads placed directly on the skin, depending on the area you need to treat. This way, the strategically placed pads will target the pain where it occurs instead of affecting your entire body as it happens with over-the-counter painkillers.
How does it work?
TENS units come in a very large variety of models, brands, features and prices, but Trumedic TENS units are simple, compact and easy to use no matter if you are at home or at work. They are an effective treatment for both acute and chronic pain, and the main advantage is that they can relieve pain quickly and can be used by doctors, massage therapists, medical practitioners and anyone who suffers from different types of pain.
Another reason why Trumedic TENS units are so popular is because they can alleviate a large variety of pains, including back pain, nerve and sport injuries, arthritis, muscular pain sciatica and neuralgia. Most people have experienced immediate results which lasted for several hours, but there is a money back guarantee if you are not satisfied with the effects. Some products even come with free accessories such as replacement lead wires that fit Trumedic and other compatible units, extra electrode pads, belts for lower back pain management, as well as lumbar, large, small and butterfly pads. Other models can also provide heat and massage options for better pain management.
They are suitable for short term pain but can also be used on a regular basis. TENS devices send electric impulses through your body to stimulate the nerves in the targeted area, while electrode pads are applied to the surface of your skin to connect you with the unit. This stimulation will reduce or even eliminate pain for most patients, and another advantage of using such a device is that you get to select the intensity and frequency of the stimulation, but remember that low frequency stimulation provides better results even if most people find it uncomfortable. Trumedic TENS units come in different sizes, so you can choose between handheld and bulkier models. Larger and portable units are also available, but they are generally designed for medical use. Regardless of the type and size you choose, make sure to apply special gels before placing the electrode pads on your skin for better conductivity.
You can use a TENS unit whenever you experience pain; no matter if you are trying to sleep, have physical activities or are just sitting down, this device can be used 24/7 because it has no side effects and its continual use is not addictive. However, there are times when you shouldn’t use the device; for example, pregnant women should avoid using it during advanced stages of their pregnancy. They are also best avoided on open wounds or if you haven’t been examined by a physician before purchasing them.
