Reduces pain and speeds up recovery.

To reduce pain which results from nerve or chronic pain, and to speed up the repair of tissue including muscle, ligament and cartilage.

How does TENS help?

Through the placement of the electrode pads directly on your skin, Elle TENS accelerates the recovery of certain types of pain and injuries in a few ways.

The delivery of electrical impulses to the affected area, which helps to block pain signals from reaching the brain, thereby reducing the perception of pain. This provides immediate relief and allows you to engage in rehabilitative exercises more comfortably, promoting faster recovery.

It stimulates the release of endorphins, which are the body’s natural painkillers. Endorphins not only alleviate pain but also promote a sense of well-being and relaxation, which can aid in the healing process.

TENS machines can improve blood circulation in the affected area. By increasing blood flow, more oxygen and nutrients are delivered to the injured tissues, while waste products are removed more efficiently. This enhanced circulation can accelerate the healing of damaged tissues and reduce inflammation, leading to faster recovery times.

Elle TENS has been found to reduce muscle spasms and stiffness, which are common symptoms associated with various types of pain and injuries. By promoting muscle relaxation and flexibility, TENS machines can facilitate greater mobility and range of motion, enabling individuals to engage in rehabilitative exercises more effectively.

Using an Elle TENS machine offers immediate pain relief and can expedite the recovery process for certain types of pain and injuries. 


What causes pain?

Pain is a complex sensation that serves as a crucial alarm system in the human body, signalling potential harm or injury. It originates from specialised nerve endings, which are located throughout the body’s tissues and organs. When these receptors detect extreme temperatures, pressure, or tissue damage, they send electrical signals to the brain via the spinal cord. This process, known as nociception, is the initial stage of pain perception.

Once here, the brain interprets the signals and generates what we know to be the experience of pain. Importantly, pain perception is not solely determined by the severity of the messages sent to our brains but also by factors such as emotions, past experiences, and individual differences in pain sensitivity.

In addition to this sensed pain, which arises from actual tissue damage, the body can also experience neuropathic pain, which is from damage to or the dysfunction of the nervous system itself. Neuropathic pain often manifests as shooting or burning sensations and can be chronic in nature. 

Pain is a complex interplay between sensory, cognitive, and emotional processes in the body and brain. Understanding more about the source of your pain and how this is interpreted can help you better manage and alleviate pain.

Using a TENS Machine for pain or recovery:

Electrode Placement:

Place the electrodes directly on your skin: For pain and injury relief, you can place the electrode pads directly on the area of discomfort, such as a sore muscle or joint. Alternatively, you can position the electrode pads at the base of the spine to intercept the pain signals travelling to the brain. 

It’s important to experiment with electrode pad placement to find what works best for you and provides the most relief. For specific instructions, look at the pages about the specific pain type you are addressing.

Time for Use:

When to start: You should consider using a TENS machine when experiencing acute or chronic pain, muscle soreness, or injury. It’s especially helpful for conditions like arthritis, back pain, and sports injuries. If you’re looking for drug-free pain relief, TENS can be a great option. Additionally, if you want to complement other pain management strategies or reduce reliance on pain medications, TENS may be suitable for you.

Frequency of Use:

Use as needed: TENS machines are safe for daily use. You can use it whenever you experience period pain. Some people find relief with multiple short sessions throughout the day.

Expected Sensations:

Tingling or buzzing sensations: When you turn on the TENS machine, you’ll feel a gentle tingling or buzzing sensation where the electrodes are placed, similar to pins and needles. It shouldn’t be painful. You should test the placement of the electrodes, and always start with the device on to a low level. Adjust the intensity to a level that is comfortable but still effective in reducing pain.

Immediacy of Relief:

The electrodes deliver electrical impulses immediately and within a few minutes you should recognise a change in the levels of pain. If you are not feeling relief, it might be worth repositioning the electrodes, or increasing the level of impulses.
