The optimal methods of pain relief are low risk, noninvasive, and cost effective. A TENS Unit fits that profile.
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) February 07, 2012
The most comprehensive Arizona pain management center, Preferred Pain Center, is now offering electrical stimulation TENS Unit devices to patients for pain management. The devices offer an excellent nonsurgical method for relieving all sorts of acute and chronic pain.
Preferred Pain Center, which is a comprehensive pain management Phoenix AZ center, is now offering Tens Unit devices to its patients for pain relief. The devices represent an inexpensive and effective method for pain relief in those suffering from back pain, neck pain, or extremity pain.
A TENS unit stands for transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation. The way it works is by providing slight electrical impulses from the device, which is about the size of an iPod. These electrical impulses travel through wires, called electrodes, and into the body by way of small pads placed over the region of greatest pain. The electrical impulses then work by the “pain gate theory” of altering the way the brain perceives pain signals.
The devices can help decrease the amount of narcotic medications required by patients for pain relief, and help substantially when a patient has an acute episode of back pain from a lumbar sprain or strain. Often times the chiropractor Phoenix at Preferred Pain Center works closely with the pain management doctors to achieve optimal pain relief.
TENS units are small enough to be placed on a belt for traveling, and patients can wear them while working or socializing. They may be excellent for back pain, neck pain, or extremity pain. They work on a 9 volt replaceable battery, and the pads and electrodes are readily replaceable.
“The optimal methods of pain relief are low risk, noninvasive, and cost effective. A TENS Unit fits that profile. Patients love the benefits they provide, and our chiropractic pain management doctors in Arizona program the units to most effectively relieve the patient’s individual pain.”
Those suffering from back pain, neck pain, or extremity pain may want to consider the benefits of a TENS Unit. Preferred Pain Center has a 24 Hour Guarantee for getting patients in to start treatment, and will be evaluated for a TENS device.
