TENS Machine Services in Brisbane

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) therapy is a non-invasive pain management solution that delivers low-voltage electrical currents through electrodes placed on the skin, effectively stimulating nerves in the area of pain. This stimulation minimises pain symptoms by modulating pain signals, blocking pain perception, and triggering the release of endorphins.

One of the greatest advantages of TENS therapy is its versatility. From muscle pain and joint stiffness to neuropathic pain and ligament sprains, TENS machines can be tailored to address a wide range of ailments. TENS machines pose little risk of adverse reactions when used correctly. Though it is worth mentioning that pacemakers, pregnancy and epilepsy are important contraindications. While some users may experience mild tingling sensations or skin irritation at the electrode sites, these effects are typically transient and well-tolerated. Furthermore, using a TENS machine is a straightforward process. The unit comes with electrodes in the form of sticky patches that you place on your body in the areas that need to be treated. The user has full control to increase the intensity and frequency of the electrical impulses as needed to achieve optimal pain relief.
