Lower back pain is very common. Pain can back localised or radiate to the hip, and even down the leg (in the case of sciatic pain). This pain is normally caused by a herniated disc pressing on a nerve. The intensity of the pain can vary from mild discomfort to extremely painful debilitating spasms.
TENS Machines have been successfully used to treat lower back pain for many years. The efficacy of TENS for lumbar pain is well documented. It is proven to be an effective drug-free (and therefore side effect free) easy to use treatment.
TENS devices work by delivering small electrical pulses through electrodes attached to the patient’s skin with adhesive gel pads. These electrical pulses block the nerves that transmit pain signals to the spinal cord and brain; thereby relieving the pain. TENS also cause the body to release endorphins; the body’s natural pain relieving hormones.
Here are the simple steps to using your TENS Machine for lower back pain:
There are many benefits of using a TENS machine. It is a drug-free treatment which is very well-tolerated and without side effects. Also, the electrical stimuli has been proven to make pain more manageable and/or make it completely disappear over time.
