Introduction to Digital TENS Machines
Digital TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) machines are innovative devices utilised widely in physiotherapy for non-invasive temporary pain relief. They work by transmitting mild electrical currents through the skin to stimulate nerves, effectively aiming to reduce pain.
How TENS Machines Alleviate Pain
According to the Gate Control theory, TENS machines help block pain signals by sending electrical currents that interrupt these signals, effectively ‘closing the gate’ on pain. Additionally, these devices stimulate the body to release natural painkillers, similar to opiates, activating the body’s own pain relief mechanisms.
