Pain treatment

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS)

 

The sensation of pain is an important body signal to indicate an occurring or imminent injury or disorder. Millions of people suffer from frequent or even chronic pain, such as ...

 

  • Headaches
  • Backache
  • Pain in the nape of the neck
  • Pain in the joints
  • Pain due to rheumatic diseases
  • Pain due to sporting accidents

 

In our body there are millions of subtle nerve fibres. The sensation of pain in our body is thus reported from the afflicted region to the spinal cord via so called afferent nerve fibres and from there to the brain.

 

The brain evaluates the pain signal and returns it to the body region concerned. This is the way we perceive pain.

 

Acute or chronic pain can effectively be treated with Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation without any need for drugs and dangerous side effects.

 

Electrodes are placed at certain body regions which by transmitting gentle electrical impulses can impede the transmission of pain sensation.

 

In addition, messenger substances can increasingly be released, which will help to alleviate pain.
