Does a TENS Machine have a curative value?
When you are in chronic pain it can take over your whole life. All you do is think about, focus on, and dwell over whichever part of your body is giving you the most trouble. It can really eat away at your day, making even normal activities a problem. Working through the pain is what you have been trying to do all along, without much success. It’s still there creeping up on you over and over. Wouldn’t it be nice to make a real change in regards to your pain? Let’s talk about how you can find temporary, but significant relief in regards to your chronic pain with the right portable TENS unit.
The Most Common Pain Points
Common places people usually experience pain is in their lower back, neck area, and shoulders where your body does a lot of the work for routine household activities or at their jobs. You’ve seen countless doctors and pain management therapists to no avail. It’s time to think about what you can do on your own. A good pain management tool is a portable TENS unit. This type of stim machine is going to offer some temporary relief of the pain associated with sore and aching muscles. While it may not be a cure for the pain, any relief you can get is a positive step towards feeling better. Not only does pain wear away at your body, it can affect your mental outlook as well. This is a fact to take very seriously because finding the right TENS therapy can do wonders for your total health.
What Is Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Therapy? (TENS)
Electrical stimulation machines, or a STIM machine is going to deliver low-voltage electrical current through electrodes to the certain muscle groups on the body. You can place your device anywhere on your body you are having pain. A portable TENS unit allows you to wear the unit and go about your normal activities, which makes it a very convenient device. It can feel when you are wearing the device like a very pleasant sensation on the skin. You can even change up the settings to find the exact one you prefer.
Utopia Gear offers quite a few different TENS machines to choose from, like the Pro 3.0. This is our most popular model, with features that include:
- 12 TENS Modes
- Dual Inputs To Treat Two Areas Simultaneously
- Adjustable Timer
- 20 Intensities
- Rechargeable Battery

Another one to consider is the TENS Pro Mini. This unit may be the right kind for you, because it has “small but mighty pain relief.” With eight different stimulation modes, this lightweight unit is only three inches tall! Its pocket friendly size probably makes it smaller than your actual smartphone. This is the one you want to take with you on any weekend adventures or outings with your family. No one will even know that you are wearing this kind of device.
The Investment In a TENS Machine
When you are considering the cost of a TENS machine, it’s around $200. What you should think about is the “per use” cost. When you use the device over 5 years, it comes out to about 50 cents per use. Overall it’s much more cost effective than countless over-the-counter drugs that aren’t helping the problem, or even providing you any relief from the insistent pain. You can easily reduce the amount of prescription medicine you are on as well, when you feel the relief this machine can bring to your body.
Use It Wherever and Whenever You Like
The best part about the TENS machine is that you can use it whenever you want to. It puts you in charge of controlling your pain symptoms. While it isn’t a cure, it’s going to give you another option to treat your pain. Don’t stop going to physical therapy or listening to your doctor or chiropractor, but this type of home treatment can be used when you are in pain at 10:00 PM on a Saturday night, without a whole lot of other options. This is something you can have on you at all times. That’s what makes the TENS unit so valuable to you. Sometimes a cure isn’t in the cards for chronic pain, but doing something to make it better is the right start.
