Period pain, muscular aches, neck tension, lower back pain - as a female, you have probably experienced one if not all of these ailments at some point. However, pain is just another part of life for some of us.
But it doesn't have to be that way.
Technology exists to help relieve your pain and help you get through your day. However, without adjusting every aspect of your life around the debilitating effects pain can cause.
Enter a TENS machine. A compact, drug-free solution for pain relief you can use undetected no matter where you are.
What is a TENS Machine?
TENS or Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation is a method of pain relief utilising an electrical current to target and neutralise the pain.
Small electrical pulses are transmitted into your body via adhesive pads. Kind of like mini electric shocks. This can have the effect of interrupting pain signals being sent to your brain.
So, whilst your body may be experiencing pain, your perception of the pain will be significantly reduced.
How Do I Use a TENS Machine?
Using a TENS machine could not be simpler. Attach the electrode pads to the affected area, select your preferred power level, and hit the go button!
You can always adjust the intensity at any time if you find it too much. You just need to find the appropriate level for you.
To determine a suitable frequency to relieve your pain, you might find the following useful as a guide:
- high-frequency pulses, 80-120 cycles per second, may help manage acute pain
- low-frequency pulses, 1-20 cycles per second, can be useful in treating chronic pain
Thankfully, in developing the modern iteration of a TENS machine, manufacturers have deduced that we want to use the device wherever and whenever we need it. Therefore, you will find most TENS machines are small enough to wear under our clothing, meaning we can experience the soothing effects of drug-free pain relief no matter our surroundings.
