Effectual Pain Relief With Electro Therapy
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

There can be several recommendations for people suffering from pain. Some physicians may suggest painkillers while others may recommend physiotherapy.

One of the most effective ways to counter pain is electro therapy. This therapy uses tiny electric stimuli to treat acute and chronic pain. Treating pain with electricity is not a recent phenomenon. Electric treatment has been around for more than one hundred years. The nature of this treatment is safe and non-invasive that makes it stand out as the most effective therapy to treat pain.

Electro therapy can either be used as a standalone treatment or together with other therapies like a pain relief massage or painkillers. However, people are seen reducing the consumption of other drugs once they get started with these sessions.

The following are a few electro stimulation devices that people use to treat pain.

Interferential Device

These devices are specially used for people suffering from deep pain. This therapy creates a very deep penetrating pulse. This pulse is created with two different frequencies working together. Interference occurs between the pain and the frequencies at the spinal cord that results in reducing the pain.

This therapy is usually used in post-op and pre orthopedic surgeries, muscle spasms and joint injury syndrome.

Acutron Microlight

Healers and acupuncturists use this revolutionary technology that uses microcurrent to treat pain. The intensity and settings can be changed according to the needs of a patient. It is very effective to treat chronic and sub-acute pain for larger body regions, such as the lower back, shoulders, hips, and knees.

Back pain TENS Belt

The principles of TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) are used by this device. The belt generates small electric stimuli, which stimulates the endings of the nerves through skin. The signals of pain are blocked from reaching the brain. Using the belt can effectively results the pain and discomfort.

Endorphins production is also enhanced by the usage of electric stimuli. Endorphins are the natural painkillers of the body. Usually the contact between your skin and electrodes takes place on you back. This may create a little tingling sensation on your body.

These electro stimulation devices are extremely effective in stimulating reflexes and muscles and treating pains. If you are looking to get a home-unit device to treat yourself with electro therapy regularly at home, then remember that the prices of the products vary. The best product for you will be the one that will fall in your budget and suit the sophistication level you require.
