TENS – Drug Free Pain Relief

Pain can affect all aspects of a person’s life. Whether a person is living with chronic pain, or constant pain, they are seeking pain relief which actually works.

TensCare Ltd offer a range drug-free, pain relief alternatives – with no side effects – to help individuals cope with the physical challenges and severe discomfort that their condition impacts on their lives.

TENS, EMS and IFT medical devices are recommended throughout the world by pain clinics and physiotherapy departments, for all types of long term pain management.

TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) delivers tiny, safe, electrical signals through conductive pads to stimulate the nerves under your skin. It relieves pain in two ways: by helping the body to release natural painkillers (called endorphins) and by blocking pain messages.

EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation) is widely recognised as a method of treatment for muscle rehabilitation. EMS produces intensive and effective muscular contraction by passing electrical stimulation through electrode pads placed on the skin in order to react with specific nerves supplying a particular muscle group. These muscle contractions retrain the muscles, increase their effectiveness and improve their condition. This is beneficial where muscles – for whatever reason – have not been in regular use and have lost condition (muscle atrophy). For sports, the benefit of EMS is to increase the effect of training and enhance performance. The same effect can be used to firm up muscles to improve aesthetic appearance.

IFT (Interferential Therapy) delivers continuous stimulation deep into the tissue providing relief for deep seated pain. Not only does IFT provide a drug-free and non-invasive method of pain relief, the therapy also helps to reduce swelling and inflammation which can often be the source of the pain.  By reducing the level of swelling and inflammation, muscle movement and blood flow are increased making you more mobile. The benefits of IFT are recognised by Physiotherapists as an effective form of additional treatment for muscle injuries and stiff joints.
