First of all, there is nothing "magic" about interferential stimulation. Your InTENSity Select Combo Unit sends small comfortable electrical impulses through your skin into the painful area causing a mild tingling sensation. The sensation works to prevent pain signals from reaching the brain. The InTENSity Select Combo Unit has two channels, allowing it to operate on either one or two pairs of electrodes which allows a better focus and deeper tissure stimulation when compared to other tpes of electrical stimulation.
How Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation works:
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is a non-invasive, drugfree method of controlling pain. TENS Units use tiny electrical impulses sent through the skin to nerves to modify your pain perception. In most people it is effective in reducing or eliminating the pain, allowing for a return to normal activity. In many people, the reduction or elimination of pain lasts longer than the actual period of stimulation (sometimes as much as three to four times longer). In others, pain is modified while stimulation actually occurs.Unit overrides the pain signal to the brain by sending a comfortable electronic impulse. When the TENS Unit overrides the pain signal, it "tricks" the brain into thinking their is NO PAIN. This produces Fast and Rapid Pain Relief, usually within a minute or two. You can control and customize the intensity, pulse rate, and pulse width to "experiment" and find the best setting for your pain relief.
