Muscle stimulators and TENS machines can be used for both exercise and pain relief. Use TENS machines to stimulate nerve endings and relieve pain. Or, use PhysioRoom's muscle stimulators to stay in shape. Electrical pulses help to stimulate "hidden" and major muscles before, during, or after exercise.
Electrical Muscle Stimulators use intelligent electro pulse technology. They can work the body during both exercise and rest. Made with athletes in mind, muscle stimulators are designed to increase the challenge of a training program. They can also prevent injuries, quicken recovery from injury, provide pain management and more. They're easy to use and compact. So these personal fitness machines can be taken with you whenever you exercise.
Muscle stimulators charge your body with electrical impulses. In doing so, they activate and engage more of your muscles than you would when usually exercising. (Even those that you don't usually feel or control!) On top of these more 'hidden' muscles, muscle stimulators exercise all your major muscle groups. When combined with regular exercise, muscle stimulators are a simple way to complete an extra intense workout. Plus, you can do it in a shorter time within a safe level.
At PhysioRoom, we stock a variety of different muscle stimulators. We stock models designed for professional athletes. They can be used with exercise to build the ultimate workout. Or they can be used to help aid recovery. Use them before, during or after exercise to help target all muscles.
We also stock easy-to-use muscle and ab stimulators. These will help you tone your muscles and keep you in shape. These products are very versatile. They'll allow you to effectively firm up your arms and abs. Plus, they can be used at any time.
Muscle Stimulators are a great device for recovering from injury. They're also useful for pain relief and fitness development. These products are a useful tool for athletes of all levels. They're perfect for targeting all muscle groups easily and safely.
TENS machines are pain relief devices. They're even used by physiotherapists and specialist pain clinics. They can be used in the treatment of conditions that cause back pain and neck pain. But they're also useful for treating ankle pain, knee pain, shoulder pain, elbow pain, wrist pain and hand pain. TENS stands for 'transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation'. This is a form of direct current that is passed through the skin using adhesive electrodes.
The TENS current stimulates nerve endings. These then pass an impulse to the brain, which acts as a counter stimulation to the original pain signals. This then results in pain relief. A portable TENS unit can clip onto your trousers. The thin wires connect from the unit to the adhesive electrodes that stick onto the skin around the area of pain. Portable TENS machines can be used at home, at work or when travelling.
TENS treatment has been scientifically proven to reduce pain intensity. It's a safe, cost-effective and drug-free alternative for the treatment of pain. TENS is an effective form of pain relief for Arthritis, Back Pain, Bursitis, Period Pain and Labour pain. It can also be used for Neck Pain, Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI), Sciatica, Tendonitis and Whiplash.
TENS machines and Muscle stimulators can be used as a portable pain management device. TENS technology is often used in physical therapy as an effective method of pain relief. Whereas, the various intensity levels of a muscle stimulator can be used to improve abdominal strength during exercise.
The electrical current used in stimulators causes small muscle spasms and muscle contraction. This can be applied to the abdominal muscles for a standalone or integrated workout. They can also help with injury prevention and pain management before or after exercise.
Types of Pain - Chronic Pain, Labour Pain, Nerve Pain
For acute pain, joint pain and issues like chronic low-back pain, TENS machines can effectively "block" pain messages. They do this by stimulating nerve endings and offering counter stimulation to pain signals. This makes them an effective pain reliever. And the variable pulse rate means that they can be used at different intensities.
