TENS uses self adhesice electrode patches attached to a small, battery-operated device. It sends an electric current to your nerves to override pain signals. Another way TENS may relieve pain is by triggering the release of natural painkillers (endorphins) in the brain. A TENS Machine helps acute (short-term) and chronic (long-term) pain caused by arthrits. TENS has been shown to relieve osteoarthritis (OA) pain and reduce the need for pain medications. A 2015 Cochrane Review concluded, “[there is] tentative evidence that TENS reduces pain intensity over and above that seen with placebo. It’s estimated that overall, about half of people who try TENS get a 50 percent reduction in pain. How to use a TENS Machine for Arthritis?

  • TENS Therapy for Tourette Syndrome

    What is Tourette Syndrome? Tourette syndrome (TS) is a neuropsychiatric disorder characterized by the occurrence of vocal and motor tics. Tics are involuntary, repetitive movements and vocalizations that occur in bouts, typically many times in a single day, and are often preceded by a strong urge-to-tic, premonitory urge (PU). Various neurological dysfunctions causes TS. How does TENS Therapy Help? Non-invasive brain stimulation delivered to cortical motor areas can modulate cortical motor excitability, entrain brain oscillations, and reduce tics in TS. Highlights Rhythmic median nerve stimulation can entrain sensorimotor mu-band oscillations •Mu-band entrainment has minimal effect on volitional movement or cognition •Mu-band entrainment significantly reduces motor and vocal tics in Tourette syndrome •Mu-band entrainment reduces the urge-to-tic in Tourette syndrome Usage: Pad Placement: Right Wrist TENS Settings: Pulse Rate 12Hz, Mode: B, Pulse Width: 100 Microseconds Recommend Items: iStim EV-820 Pre- programmed Digital TENS Machine Round Small TENS Pads Electrodes 3x3cm Back to Home Page Journal Reference: https://www.cell.com/current-biology/fulltext/S0960-9822(20)30558-3?_returnURL=https%3A%2F%2Flinkinghub.elsevier.com%2Fretrieve%2Fpii%2FS0960982220305583%3Fshowall%3Dtrue

  • Breast Stimulation Using a TENS Machine for Lactation

    Have you ever thought about using a TENS Machine for Breast Stimulation or wondered about its benefits for Lactation? In this blog post, we will be highlighting recommended settings and pad placement for optimal results for encouraging lactation. As we all know, TENS Machine therapy has many well documented and researched benefits for treating various health conditions and diseases. When it comes to lactation, TENS Machine therapy has become hugely popular due to the amazing results women have acheived for stimulating milk production, without the use of external aids such as breast pumps. How it works? A TENS Machines main function is to stimulate the nerves in your body to block pain signals reaching the brain (which reduces the perception of pain). When used for lactation purposes, it is used to stimulate the nerves of your breast, mostly nerves in your nipple area. This stimulation caused by small electrical impulses tricks the brain into promoting the release of prolactin by your Pituitary Gland (in your brain). That induces growth and development of acini tissues in your breasts and leads to lactation. How to use a TENS Machine for Lactation? Treatment 1 Pad Placement: 2x Pads (<5cm in size) on lateral sides of both Nipples (5cm apart) TENS Settings: TENS Mode Burst Width: 90 us Rate: 1.0 Hz Intensity: User Defined (Shouldn’t be too weak or too strong) Duration: 15 mins each session 4x a Day Treatment 2 Clip Placement: 2x Clips on both Nipples TENS Settings: TENS Mode Burst, Width: 50 us Rate: 0.8 Hz Intensity: User Defined (Start off low and work your way up to a comfortable level) Duration: 15 mins each session 4x a Day Recommended Items: iStim EV-820 Pre- programmed Digital TENS Machine Ear Clip Electrodes for TENS Machines VNS Professional Rubber Breast Electrode Pads Back to Home Page
