Electrotherapy is a physical therapeutic treatment whereby electrical stimulation is applied to nerves and muscle-motor fibres via electro-pads placed on the skin.
Using mild electrical pulses on problem areas to improve physical functioning, the tens machine reduces pain, improves circulation, strengthens muscles and repairs injured tissues.
These effects are achieved by:
• reducing localized inflammation
• increasing blood flow
• stimulating muscles
• triggering the release of endorphins, hormones that act as the body’s natural analgesic
