Everyone suffers from chronic pain. Common treatments for chronic pain are medications or surgery. Then you have to deal with the side effects from those medications, which will give you more pain. You want to experience a quality life, play with your family, and not be trapped inside by pain.

You can relax. There is a new treatment that can help people suffering from chronic pain. Trans-coetaneous electrical nerve stimulation, aka TENS machine, generates electrical waves to reduce chronic pain.

What is a TENS unit?

It is a non-pharmacological treatment for pain relief. Safe and effective use of low voltage current can reduce pain, and you can lead a better quality of life.

The TENS unit activates spinal cord and brain stem sites that use opioid and serotonin receptors. It consists of appropriate dosage and optimal intensity.

For back pain, place the TENS machines electrode on the painful area of the skin. Electrical impulses travel along the nerve fibers, providing instant relief from pain, as well as producing a "tingling sensation." The unit stimulates the nerves in the spinal cord, relieving pain by closing the "gate" mechanism that deals with the sensation of pain.

Nerve retraining

Damaged nerves cannot send or receive signals. It makes walking difficult and causes excruciating pain. It causes loss of movement due to pain when you try and move.
Endorphins are your body's natural pain-relieving drugs, and impulses release them. There is no better way to relieve pain than using body pain relievers.

With enough time and treatment, the brain and nerve patterns can be retrained by stimulating the client's muscles.

Less swelling

Inflammation comes with pain, which causes more pain. Several studies have shown that electrical impulses within muscle fibers can reduce inflammation.

No side effects

Unfortunately, living a life of pain means that you are now experiencing unbearable pain. Pain medications come with various side effects:

1. Constipation
2. Sleep
3. Vomiting or nausea
4. Dizziness
5. Liver failure
6. Digestive and respiratory problems

The TENS unit was so effective that some people could eliminate their painkillers. If you are pregnant, have epilepsy, or have heart problems, consult your doctor before considering the TENS unit.


Financial pain comes along with physical pain. The lifetime supply cost of painkillers is very expensive.

These units were only available at medical clinics because they were so expensive. You can buy one for your home, and you do not have to leave your sofa.

Small one-time purchases can help with better quality of life, financially and comfortably.

Very easy to use

Being an advanced medical device, the units are very easy to use. They are very easy to operate so you can use them at home.

Improved quality of life

What you want with pain management is a better quality of life when it comes to it. You want to get back to activities that make you happy.


Using a TENS unit is economical and costs you much less than surgery or painkillers. You can easily use it to relieve muscle and nerve pain without any side effects. Using the unit will help you regain a better, more productive quality of life.
