Finally, an effective treatment for chronic pain
that avoids the side effects and high cost of prescription drugs.
If you've ever recovered from a painful operation or live with the nagging
pain of a chronic illness, chances are good you've tried several kinds
of prescription pain medication. Along the way, you may have discovered
that prescription drugs can have unwanted side effects when used to treat
The reason lies in the very nature of prescription drugs. These drugs
are systemic, which means they flood the entire body with medicine instead
of focusing on a specific problem area. Over time, they may impact your
overall wellness and can even lead to serious side effects.
Remember, too, that prescription drugs are already very expensive and
are likely to increase in cost. These skyrocketing costs are yet another
reason to look for a more reasonable solution to the problem of chronic
Electrotherapy: The answer to your chronic pain.
An effective alternative to prescription pain medication is electrotherapy,
which uses small doses of electric current to promote natural pain relief
Electrotherapy is different from drug therapy because it targets chronic
pain exactly where it occurs – an arthritic arm or elbow, a surgical
incision, or a broken bone on the mend.
Electrotherapy has been used for decades to successfully treat chronic
pain of all kinds. There are no known side effects. And because electrotherapy
relieves chronic pain without the systemic side effects of prescription
drugs, many patients feel more at ease when electrotherapy is their primary
treatment for pain.
Modern electrotherapy units are easy to use and compact enough to provide
quick and dependable pain relief at work, home or play. And measured
against the high cost of prescription drugs, a TENS or MENS electrotherapy
unit represents a small one-time investment that will give you relief
from chronic pain for many years to come. In fact, the out-of-pocket
cost for such a unit may be quite low because many insurance plans now
cover the cost of an electrotherapy device.
When is electrotherapy an option?
Electrotherapy is an effective option for almost any kind of chronic
Clinical studies have proven the effectiveness of TENS and MENS electrotherapy
in treating the acute, chronic pain that often occurs after an operation
or traumatic event. Electrotherapy promotes the healing of surgical wounds,
bone and soft tissue injuries in:
- Low back surgery
- Hip replacement
- Foot surgery
- Hernia repair
- Gall bladder
- Kidney surgery
- Arthroscopic surgery
TENS and MENS electrotherapy have also been proven effective for patients
suffering from many kinds of non-surgical chronic pain. As electrotherapy
relieves their pain, patients report more restful sleep and are able
to perform activities with family and friends that were once simply too
painful to contemplate. Electrotherapy offers a genuine alternative to
those otherwise resigned to a lifetime of taking prescription medications
for conditions such as:
- Back pain
- Migraine and tension headaches
- Phantom limb pain
