For Those with Chronic Back Pain, Electrotherapy Can be a Godsend


Chronic pain is defined as lingering ongoing pain, which hangs around long after the initial injury or whatever caused the pain in the first place.
Often people with chronic pain have tried many other therapies, with little or no lasting results.

If you have chronic ongoing pain, electrotherapy may provide much needed relief.

Electrotherapy comes in two basic flavors, TENS and Interferential. TENS has been the most popular. Portable, use at home units have been around for a while. Until recently Interferential therapy has only been available in the clinic. You had to go see your doctor or chiropractor to get a treatment.

Thanks to every improving technology, Interferential is now available in a portable at home unit as well. Most people get more satisfactory results with Interferntial treatment. The pain relief often lasts longer. A phenomena known as carryover pain relief. When the treatment in over, the pain relief in ongoing for some period of time, until another treatment is needed. With TENS often the pain comes back, shortly after turning the unit off, requiring almost constant use.
