Multi-Tens gives you back the power to manage and reduce constant or recurring pain and as it is small and portable you can use it anywhere for a number of painful conditions.
Use the TENS programmes for:
•Back pain whether caused by sprains, disc problems or spondylosis
•Shoulder pain and tension release
•Osteoarthritis affecting one or more joints
•Neck pain, whiplash, cervical spondylosis
•Referred pain e.g. sciatica
•Carpal tunnel syndrome
•Post shingles pain
•Acute sprains or strains
•Phantom limb pain
•Post operative pain
Use the EMS/MNS programmes for:
•Disuse atrophy (tissue wasting)
•Restricted range of motion such as sprains
•Joint and ligament repair or reconstruction
•Knee cartilage injury (chrondomalacia patella)
•Stroke and spinal damage
•The re-education of partial nerve damaged muscle groups
•For relaxation of spastic muscles
•Post-operative care to improve blood flow in selected muscles
•The maintenance of range of motion
•A complimentary way to perform muscular training
EMS-NMS therapy is used by physiotherapists and private individuals worldwide for treating injuries and stroke rehabilitation. Given sufficient time our bodies generally have the capacity to heal themselves. However, recognized physical therapy treatments do accelerate the process and help ensure a more complete recovery. One such physical treatment is Neuromuscular Stimulation (EMS/NMS).
EMS-NMS therapy is used to accelerate and enhance healing by:
•Increasing circulatory flow to injured regions
• Increasing cellular activity
• Mobilising muscles and joints to prevent stiffness and wastage
• Strengthening muscle groups
During the healing process body cells are forced to rest due to pain or incapacity. The cells of the region at rest are under-stimulated, resulting in a lowering of electro-chemical activity. Consequently, the region is deprived of an adequate supply of nutrients and proteins and waste products are eliminated more slowly. Externally applied EMS-NMS replaces the reduced electrical activity and reverses the undesirable consequences of any lowered activity.
For many injuries the speed and degree of success of the recovery process is directly proportional to the quality and amount of treatment received. While patients may be able to attend a clinic just a few times a week, it is far preferable if they have access to a portable or mobile EMS product. In this way they can apply therapy when required and for as long as is necessary. When low intensity treatment is applied over long periods of time it is of greater benefit in sustaining the over-all healing process.
Rehabilitation and muscle building:
You can use EMS-NMS therapy for rehabilitation and prevention of a recurrence of the injury. Injured muscles deteriorate rapidly if left unused. An important aspect of rehabilitation is the strengthening of weakened muscles. The strengthening process comes from slowly increasing the workload on the muscles throughout the rehabilitation period. EMS therapy can be used to strengthen the muscles in a controlled environment. Progressively increasing EMS intensity and/or application times results in anaerobic conditioning of the muscles. Continued use of EMS-NMS therapy to further strengthen specific muscle groups or for general bodybuilding beyond the rehabilitation period will help protect the body under future stress and thus guard against a recurrence of the injury.
Tens Therapy for Injuries:
You can use TENS therapy for immediate pain relief and early stage treatment. When a serious soft tissue injury occurs your first action should always be to seek medical advice to ensure correct diagnosis and an appropriate injury management program. An injury of this nature may be made up of damage to any number of body structures and there may be other complicating factors at play. Treatment should always be under the guidance of a qualified health professional.
However, once assessment and diagnosis are complete, the next step will be to manage the initial pain. Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is a highly efficient and effective method. Used at low
intensity with electrodes placed at peripheral sensory nerves or adjacent to the central nervous system, the benefits of NeuroTrac™ TENS products for first-aid pain relief are:
• Pain gating and beta-endorphin release
• Increased cellular activity
•Use is sustained for as long as desirable
•Therapy is applied as often as required, allowing the client to remain mobile and as active as possible.
