Everybody suffers from pain at some stage of their lives, but not everybody wants to tackle it by taking endless drugs and experiencing invasive surgical procedures. An effective, powerful alternative is the medically-approved electrotherapy known as TENS.
TENS stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation. It consists of a small unit, attached to the body via electrode pads, through which a harmless electrical signal is passed. The sensation is not painful or unpleasant, and can be likened to “pins and needles”, or even gentle massage. This signal triggers the nerve endings, activating the pain gate and boosting the release of endorphins. The pain gate effectively stops pain signals from reaching the brain, whilst endorphins are the body’s own natural defensive mechanism to ease pain.
TENS is used by physiotherapists, doctors and midwives, as well as individual patients with varying degrees of pain. In the past, TENS units were clunky, stationary, expensive and difficult to adjust. Modern advancements in TENS research means that TensCare are able to provide you with convenient, inexpensive, hospital-strength technology to use in the comfort of your own home.
The nature of this product means that, unlike many pharmaceutical alternatives, it can be used constantly with no threat of overdose, addiction or unwanted side-effects.
IMPORTANT: If you suffer from epilepsy or a heart rhythm problem, use a pacemaker, or your pain is undiagnosed, you should NOT use the itouch Easy. You may wish to discuss your options with your doctor or specialist. If you are pregnant, the itouch Easy much NOT be used, it is NOT a maternity TENS. For pain relief during labour we recommend the MamaTENS and MamaTENS MyTime, which is also available from Amazon. For more information call the TensCare helpline 01372 723 434
