National Arthritis Awareness Month

Arthritis Awareness Month

May is recognised each year as National Arthritis Awareness Month. Within the month of May there are many Arthritis awareness campaigns such as Arthritis Care Week on the 8th to the 14th and World Autoimmune Arthritis Day on the 20th.

Arthritis is actually a general term that covers over 200 different conditions with the two most common types being Rheumatoid/Autoimmune Arthritis and Osteoarthritis. In the UK, around 10 million people have arthritis. It affects people of all ages, including children causing pain and inflammation in the joints.

Tenscare Pain Relief Units offer powerful relief when treating the pain associated with Arthritis. TENS sends soothing pulses via TENS electrodes through the skin and along the nerve fibres. The pulses suppress the arthritis pain signals to the brain and encourage the body to release natural painkillers (called endorphins), and block pain signals to the brain.

In addition to our Pain Relief units we have the iGlove, iSock, iBelt and Kneestim that are used in conjunction with any TENS product. They allow the stimulation of the TENS unit to pass throughout the hands, feet, back and knees to improve blood flow, mobility while providing pain relief throughout.


At TensCare we want to help you to feel better naturally.
