TENS and Cancer Pain
What causes cancer pain?
Cancer pain can result from the pressure of a tumor, or as a result from radiation or chemotherapy. These treatments can cause side-effects which irritate healthy tissue. This in turn may cause pain, inflammation and sensitive nerve endings.
Can TENS help with cancer pain?
Cancer pain is alleviated by surgery, strong pain killers and alternative methods such as acupuncture or TENS. TENS or Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation provides non-invasive, drug-free pain relief. 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.
