That's because we carry everything you could possibly need to realize pain relief via this form of electrical stimulation therapy from the comfort of your own home, including battery chargers, batteries, adapters, skin barrier wipes, treatment lotions, prep lotions and replacement lead wires. We also offer accessories kits, which bundle these products into one convenient package, including electrode pads, replacement lead wires, conductive gel, lotion and heavy duty batteries, to make shopping a breeze.
TENS is a pain management therapy that delivers low-voltage electrical current via electrodes that are attached to whatever part of the body is causing discomfort. This discomfort is often caused by osteoarthritis or chronic or post-operative pain. However, the applications of TENS therapy have been as diverse as childbirth, migraines, tendonitis, bursitis and cancer. Some experts say TENS is effective because it stimulates the production of endorphins, which are the body's natural painkillers. Another advantage to TENS therapy is that patients can often better tolerate daily activities or exercise programs than they could with their preexisting pain. TENS can also be paired with ice to help alleviate inflammation and irritation in patients with acute conditions. This is also a treatment frequently recommended among patients who cannot tolerate pain relief medications for relief they could not experience otherwise. Like many electric stimulation therapies, the amount of pain relief achieved and the length of time it lasts varies from patient to patient.

TENS is a non-invasive, drug free method of controlling pain, which uses tiny electrical impulses sent through the skin to nerves in order to modify your pain perception. In most people it is effective in reducing or eliminating the pain.
Electronic Muscle Stimulation (EMS)
EMS works by sending electronic pulses to the muscle(s). This is achieved by sending low frequency electric pulses through muscle tissue causing them to gently contract. In this way the muscles are passively exercised and blood flow is increased
Galvanic Stimulators use direct current, which creates an electrical field over the treated area. The positive pad works like ice, causing reduced circulation to the area under the pad. The negative pad works like heat, causing increased circulation.
IF sends small comfortable electrical impulses through your skin to work on deeper tissue stimulation. The sensation works to prevent pain signals from reaching the brain.
Infrared Light Therapy help the body by delivering specific light waveforms that increase circulation. Increasing circulation helps promote healing, lessen swelling, and helps in reducing pain.
Portable Ultrasounds give advanced pain relief using sonic stimulation of soft tissue cells. They generate pulsed, high frequency sound waves, which travel deep into the tissue, generating vasodilation. This helps increase blood flow to the treated area.
Russian stimulation uses medium frequencies to provide stimulation to muscle groups. This is used to reduce muscle spasms as well as for muscle strengthening. This method was created to produce maximal muscle strengthening effects.
Microcurrent Therapy uses extremely small amounts of electrical current (millionths of an amp) to help relieve pain and heal soft tissues of the body. The electrical current used in Microcurrent Therapy is so small that it is rarely felt.
