A Look at the Similarities between Neuro E- Stim and a Tens Unit

neuro e stim similar to tens unitMost people are familiar with a tens unit, which stands for transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation. This is an electronic device which is used for therapeutic reasons and the electrical stimulation that is provided to the area where it is attached to the body excites the nerves and generates a tingling feeling. There are similarities between the Neuro E-Stim and a tens unit, but the Neuro E-Stim produces a very specific benefit for individuals who are suffering from chronic pain. It is a device that is attached to the spinal column and produces an electrical stimulation of the spine which masks the pain signals which are being transmitted from the area that is experiencing discomfort.

One of the similarities between a tens unit and the Neuro E-Stim is the type of sensation which is transmitted as a result of the unit itself. This sensation, which is known as paresthesia is often perceived as a tingling by your brain. In the case of the Neuro E-Stim, that stimulation is directly to the spine and it can reduce the amount of pain signals and discomfort that you are experiencing. The tingling itself may be mildly uncomfortable but it is often a great improvement when compared to the chronic pain that is being experienced.

What Type of Pain Can Be Managed?

When you use the Neuro E-Stim, it may be possible to treat a number of different areas that are experiencing pain. You can adjust the area of the spine is being stimulated, which can help to control the pain that may be transmitting from various areas of the body. Some of the common types of chronic pain that are reduced when you use the Neuro E-Stim include those that affect the lower back and chronic pain that is experienced in the legs.

The Neuro E-Stim is an FDA approved device that provides non-narcotic pain relief to individuals who use it. The process itself is reversible and there is a trial period which will help you to know how well it works for you before any surgical procedure takes place. Thousands of individuals experience pain relief through the use of electrical stimulation and it may be able to help you as well.
