How to Eliminate Chronic Pain Naturally
Are you tired of being in pain, especially lower back pain, pain in shoulder and neck, pain from arthritis or pain resulting from a pulled muscle broken bone? Your doctor may prescribe an OTC pain remedy, such as Advil, Tylenol or Ibuprofen. These types of medications only provide temporary pain relief. For more severe or chronic pain management, your doctor may prescribe a prescription pain medication, such as Vicodin or Demerol. These medications provide a greater level of pain relief than over-the-counter pain pills, but still only provide temporary pain relief, and come with side effects and can be addicting if used for an extended period of time. The best solution is a natural pain management device that does not involve taking any type of pills, helps the body heal and provides permanent pain relief.
The best natural pain management tool for people with lower back pain, shoulder and neck pain, arthritis, sore muscles or pain due to a broken bone, is a TENS machine. TENS is an acronym for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation, which is the process of using electrical impulses applied to the effected muscles, tissue and nerves to block pain receptors and stimulate natural healing from chronic pain, a pulled muscle, arthritis or a broken bone. TENS therapy can be an effective pain management solution for diseases that result in chronic pain.
What is TENS Therapy?
TENS therapy is natural pain management that uses a device which uses electrical impulses on the effected area of the body, and using special pads that are applied to the skin, transmits electrical impulses into the muscle tissue. Depending on the type of injury or level of pain, you can set the intensity and frequency of electrical modulation with a TENS machine to treat the patient. The electrical impulses block pain receptors that send signals to the brain to register pain. In addition to treating chronic pain, TENS machines stimulates blood flow to start the healing process, and provides a stimulating therapeutic massage.
TENS pain relief is usually done for 20 – 30 minutes per session. If you are using a portable Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation device, the pain management therapy can be continuous or in intervals specified by your doctor or physical therapist. Using a TENS unit is an ideal pain management solution for people with chronic pain, such as arthritis, severe pain that results from disease, cancer, or injury.
You are advised to see your doctor before using a portable TENS machine outside of a medical office, to get examined for your injury and to develop a pain management therapy regimen. This is important as TENS machines are designated as a Class 2 Medical Device by the FDA for chronic pain or natural pain management, and if not used properly per manufacturer’s instructions and doctor’s instructions for your specific pain management program, a TENS device can cause injury.
How to Buy a TENS Unit?
Until recently, a TENS Unit was only available as pain management in doctor’s office or as part of physical therapy performed by a licensed physical therapist. Most TENS machines available for purchase by the public requires a doctor’s prescription and may not be covered by most medical insurance plans or Medicare. The Aurawave is the first FDA cleared Class 2 Medical TENS Unit available to the public without a prescription.
This means people dealing with chronic pain can now have a pain management device in their home or work that provides the same level of natural pain relief that was only available through a doctor. This an amazing medical breakthrough for people whose health insurance doesn’t cover the pain management they need, seniors on Medicare, or those who lack sufficient medical insurance coverage for pain management.
