TENS stands for transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation and is a bio-electrical muscle stimulator used by doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, sports therapists, and even neurosurgeons! It treats any kind of pain including back pain, shoulder pain, joint pain, hip pain, sciatica, Fibromyalgia, and the list goes on and on and on.
TheraPulse’s Magic Massage devices have self-adhesive pads that stick on your body, and the device gives a bio-electrical stimulation to wherever you place the pads. For example, if you put it on your upper back, it helps fill those muscles full of blood and will contract the muscles. What this does is loosen up the muscles, wash away toxins such as lactic acid, and most importantly, it takes tension off of the nerves.
You can use it on your knees when you have inflammation and swelling, which is caused by little blood flow, so it takes a long time to repair. When you treat the knees with a TENS unit, it sends blood flow to the knees and reduces inflammation.
TENS units were developed about 48 years ago and started out as big as a kitchen table. Today, it’s so small, it can fit in the palm of your hand. It runs off of a lithium iron battery, thus giving it 45 hours of use before needing to be charged.
The pads themselves can last 100-150 uses each with proper care. All of our units come with a 2-year warranty, so if anything goes wrong, TheraPulse will ship a brand new unit to you at no cost.
TENS units are one of the best investments on your health because you can treat your pain wherever, whenever, whether it’s when you’re watching TV or at work!
