Metron Pro TENS Machine
A TENS unit, better known as a transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation unit, delivers very mild electric signals at a safe level into areas that are experiencing pain. This treatment is becoming growingly popular. The units are small and battery operated, making them portable for use almost anywhere. Tens machines use small electrodes which stick to your skin and deliver painless pulses into the nerves inside. The place where you choose to stick these electrode patches may vary depending on the level of pain you’re experiencing and the area in which the pain is located. You should begin by using the Tens Machine 3 – 4 times a day. You can build up to using the unit as often as you like, but have breaks and do not use it when sleeping at night.
Although these devices are becoming better recognized as safe ways to treat pain. It is still important to speak to your medical provider before operating or owning one. You must also ask them where the electrodes should be placed and which settings to use. Understanding how to operate your unit properly is extremely important.
