What is a TENS, EMS & Micro Current Unit?

What is TENS?

Transcutanious electric nerve stimulation is an electrical signal that penetrates the skin into the nerve to intercept and block out pain signals.

What is EMS?

Electric muscle stimulation involves scientifically designed patterns and frequencies that exercise the muscle to strengthen and rehabilitate..

What is Micro Current?

Micro currents are electric signals and waves that penetrate deeper to loosen up joints, break down calcium deposits and crystal deposits, and help break down scar tissue.

Micro currents help with inflammation and swelling. Our product Amazing Stim does combined TENS, EMS, and micro current giving you the ultimate in rehabilitation and pain relief. We have surpassed our competition with the best unit on the market. Widely used around the globe by physicians, nurses, D.O.’s, and athletic trainers.

How Can TENS Help You With Your Chronic Pain?

A transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulator (TENS) sends electrical pulses through the skin to start your body’s own pain killers. The electrical pulses can release endorphins and other substances to stop pain signals in the brain.

The non-painful signals from TENS “close the gate” and prevent the pain signals from going to the brain. Imagine that these signals are two trains on separate tracks. Each of these two tracks converges into one single track that goes to the brain. The train on the right is the pain signal, and it’s headed for that single track to the brain. But, when the non-painful signal is stimulated-the train on the left-it heads for that same track to the brain, taking over the tracks and preventing the pain signal from getting through.

TENS can help with short term pain relief. It works best when used during activities, such as walking, doing chores, or exercise.

What is TENS used for?

A TENS may be used to help with many types of chronic (long-term) pain, such as:

  • Arthritis or other joint pain
  • Back and neck pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Muscle pain
  • Neuropathic pain

When is it best to use TENS?

Research has shown that TENS is most helpful for chronic pain when used for at least 30 minutes while you are active. It is less effective when you are sitting still, lying down, or resting.

Do not use TENS if you have:

  • A cardiac pacemaker or defibrillator
  • Spinal cord stimulator
  • In-dwelling pumps or monitors
  • Any implanted metallic or electronic device
  • Cancer
  • Cognitive impairment
  • Epilepsy
  • You are pregnant
  • People who are allergic to nickel and/or adhesives may have skin irritation with TENS.

When something’s wrong, your body has its own way of signaling you to pay heed by sending pain signals. Whether the pain is sudden or persistent, it’s important to react quickly. If your problem is left untreated, there’s a chance it can become chronic over time.

The American Academy of Pain Medicine reports that an astonishing 100 million Americans suffer pain each year and more than half of pain sufferers believe they have little or no control over their pain. The good news is, you are more empowered than you might think to alleviate your pain.
