TENS 3000: The Answer To Pain
There are many reasons why you would get a TENS 3000 unit. The main reason would be to find relief from painful conditions. Of course that it isn’t the only way to alleviate acute and /or chronic pain; you may resort to painkillers, chiropractors, acupuncture, acupressure, yoga, meditation, medicinal marihuana, prayer, etc. So, with so many options available, what is the real reason to invest your time and money on a transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation machine, such as the TENS 3000? The answer is that many of those options we just listed vary from invasive, prone to side effects, to downright being placebos.
On the other hand, the TENS 3000 is like having a personal chiropractor right at home, available every time you need one. Actually, it’s better than that. This model in particular brings together the best of two worlds; namely, analog and digital technology. Even though it has a user-friendly analog interface, it delivers digital accuracy. Moreover, it features good ol’ fashioned knobs and dials that are easy to manipulate, as well as a ‘safety amplitude cap’ which ensures that the settings you choose are locked in place throughout the duration of a therapy session. These settings include three intensity modes; burst, modulation, and constant.
What about the actual use though, especially as compared to the other treatment options we enumerated before? We mentioned them being invasive, and we’re aware that everybody and their uncle hate needles. The TENS 3000 uses electrodes that are adhered to the skin surface to transmit the soothing electrical signals that subdue your pain. You don’t like electricity either, you say? Well, the whole point of this device is to stem pain, not cause it. You will definitely feel something (lest you thought it isn’t really doing anything at all), but you won’t be hurting during a session, or for a varying time afterwards. And with that we have addressed the placebo factor (or lack thereof in this case).
What about side effects? Analgesic drugs have plenty of them, like nausea, rash, stomach upset, heartburn, stomach ulcers, and kidney problems. While electrotherapy, as doled out by the TENS 300, does have a few contraindications, we’d be hard-pressed to find any significant downsides to using it. The only problem may be enjoying it too much, but the unit conveniently includes a timer to prevent overuse. On the other hand, you can use it whenever you’re in pain and need a reprieve. In summary, we have a pain management device that is non-invasive, has no side effects, and which you have access to 24/7 (no need to schedule an appointment, like with your doctor), at an affordable prices. Hopefully that answers all of your questions.
