TENS Units and Whiplash
Whiplash - what is it?
Whiplash is an injury to the cervical vertebrae and adjacent soft tissue, caused by sudden jerking or backwards or forward acceleration of the head. It is more accurately called cervical acceleration/ deceleration (CAD) trauma or syndrome. The usual source of whiplash are vehicle accidents. It can even occur from collisions as low as 5mph. However, whiplash can also be caused by any jerking of the neck's normal range of motion.
Traditional symptoms of whiplash include lingering neck pain, back pain, headaches and dizziness. In more severe cases, blurred vision, ringing in the ears, nausea and numbness.
Whiplash - How does TENS help?
Traditional treatments include drugs, osteopathy, physiotherapy, etc. However, TENS Units are a powerful form of pain relief. It is non-invasive, drug-free and fast acting.It provides a non-invasive, drug-free method of pain relief for shingles. Pads are placed on the back, near the area of pain. TENS uses soothing pulses that are sent via the pads through the skin and along the nerve fibers. The pulses suppress pain signals to the brain and encourage the body to produce higher levels of its own natural pain killing chemicals - endorphins and encephalins.
