TENS Machines and fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia - what is it?
Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is a musculoskeletal pain and fatigue disorder - the cause is still unknown. Fibromyalgia occurs in the the fibrous tissues i.e. the muscles, ligaments and tendons. The main symptom of fibromyalgia is severe muscle pain but it can also be accompanied by: fatigue, chest pain, headaches, fever, abdominal pain, insomnia, swollen lymph nodes, irritable bowel syndrome and depression.
Does TENS help Fibromyalgia?
TENS or Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation provides non-invasive, drug-free pain relief. Pads are placed on the back, near the area of pain. TENS uses soothing pulses that are sent via the pads through the skin and along the nerve fibers. The pulses suppress pain signals to the brain and encourage the body to produce higher levels of its own natural pain killing chemicals - endorphins and encephalins.
