TENS Units and Lower Back Pain
Lower back pain - what is it?
The usual cause of lower back pain is muscle stress and strain but it can also originate from ligament, tendon or vertabrae damage, posture and feet positioning. Lower back pain is often described in three categories. Acute when it has lasted less than 6 weeks, Sub-acute if it has lasted between 6 - 12 weeks and chronic if it has lasted longer than 12 weeks.
How does TENS alleviate lower back pain?
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.
