Pain relief on lower back with the BEURER EM 38 stimulation current unit.
The back belt works on the basis of electrical nerve stimulation (TENS). The more precise term is transcutaneous (meaning “through the skin“) electrical nerve stimulation (TENS).
TENS is approved as a clinically proven, effective, medication-free method of treating certain types of pain which, when used properly, is also free of side effects. It is also approved as a means of simple self-treatment. The pain-relieving or pain-suppressing effect is caused by suppressing the transmission of pain in the nerve fibres (particularly through high-frequency impulses) and increasing the release of the body‘s own endorphins, which decrease the sensation of pain by their effect in the central nervous system. This method is clinically tested and approved.
