TENS Machines and Arthritis
Arthritis: What is it?
Arthritis involves inflammation of one or more joints of the body, usually producing pain, redness, and stiffness. Arthritis disables more people than any other chronic disorder. A common form is osteoarthritis, a degenerative disease of the joints that commonly occurs with aging. rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune disease of unknown cause, is a progressive, crippling joint disorder most common in women between 25 and 50.
Arthritis pain relief - does TENS work?
TENS machine therapy is ideal for the treatment of arthritis. It is a non-invasive, fast acting, drug-free method of pain relief.
Pads are placed on or near the area of the arthritis pain. TENS uses soothing pulses that are sent via TENS electrodes through the skin and along the nerve fibres. The pulses suppress the arthritis pain signals to the brain. TENS also encourages the body to produce higher levels of its own natural pain killing chemicals i.e. endorphins and encephalins.
