Newspapers can play an extremely important part in educating people on the causes and effects of chronic long-term pain.
However, often stories of people suffering from conditions such as Fibromyalgia, can become buried beneath political scandals and ABBA reunions.
Occasionally, the issue of chronic pain is addressed, but TENS can sometimes be overlooked as a viable solution.
Here at TensCare we believe that TENS should be the first port-of-call for anyone battling with problems such as Fibromyalgia.
Solutions suggested in articles such as the one below include; painkillers, massage, and acupuncture.
All three of those solutions are either potentially dangerous, expensive, or invasive.
TENS works by stimulating your sensory nerves, and by triggering the release of natural endorphins in your body – similar to the “runner’s high” feeling many sportspeople experience, but without the crippling muscle ache the next day.
In the long term, that makes TENS cheaper and safer than pain killers. Most TENS devices will also contain a massage programme, meaning you can relax wherever you are – without the need for an expensive masseuse, bird song sound effects, or fragrant oils.
If you’d like to find out more about how TENS works, here is a simple guide to he battery-powered benefits it provides.
