Will TENS give me pain relief?
TENS for chronic and acute pain conditions
Pain is the body's warning system. It is a way of letting us know something is wrong.
The sensation of pain is important because without it, vital parts of our body might be
injured without our knowledge. However long lasting, persistent pain, often called
chronic pain, once diagnosed serves no apparent purpose.
Living with chronic pain can interfere with daily activities. Long term use of pain relieving drugs can cause side effects such as drowsiness, gastric upsets, tolerance requiring higher doses, and even addiction.
Alternative medicine is now becoming increasingly more popular as a safer option to analgesic (pain killing) drugs. TENS was developed to help relieve certain types of acute pain and chronic pain and can be used to offer a better quality of life.
We supply a variety of TENS units to suit all budgets and requirements. Our TENS
machines all come with adjustable settings. This allows the user to experience a
variety of treatment options so they can find which is most effective and comfortable
for their condition and circumstances. Our prices are very competitive and in many
cases customers can claim VAT relief if they have a chronic pain condition.

Dual Channel Power Tens Machine
IMPORTANT - This unit is a DUAL Channel TENS Machine, so it has 4 electrodes.
If you see machines advertised with only 2 electrodes - it means that is only a SINGLE Channel Machine.
The major difference is that a DUAL Channel machine enables you to cover a much wider area of where the pain is situated - and will provide much better pain relief than a SINGLE Channel Machine.
DUAL Channel Machines are recommended for Back, Shoulder, Neck, Leg and Arm pain.
Single Channel machines are recommended for isolated areas such as hands, wrist and foot.
