Drug-free pain RELIEF

WILL SEE YOU TEEING-OFF ONCE AGAIN The strong trend nationwide to avoid drug-dependant treatments is one good reason why Omron’s pain relief devices offer an ideal effective alternative

If aches and pains are spoiling your weekend game, Omron can offer you a beneficial therapy that’s 100 percent safe and drug-free. You can take control of your pain with Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation, also known as TENS. TENS therapy has been used for over 40 years by medical professionals, such as physical therapists and chiropractors. Easy to use, TENS treats chronic and acute muscle and joint pain on multiple body parts via a range of small, portable devices designed to bring relief to lower back, shoulder, joint, arm and leg pain. This drug-free therapy offers a safe alternative to opioid pain relief treatments, where misuse and addiction has lately become a public health crisis. With a 40-year history, TENS

therapy has been rigorously tested and found effective for postoperative pain, osteoarthritis, painful diabetic neuropathy, as well as other acute pain conditions that are commonly suffered by weekend or leisure golfers. EFFECTIVE NERVE STIMULATION Omron TENS therapy devices are effective via electrical nerve stimulation, providing analgesia specifically when applied at a strong, non-painful intensity. In this way, TENS activates a complex neuronal network that results in a reduction in pain. The gentle electrical pulses move through the skin to nearby nerves to block or shut out the pain signal (from the source of the pain) from ever reaching the brain. These pulses increase the production of the body’s natural painkillers, such as endorphins.

The electrical stimulation improves blood circulation as well. Muscles contract and relax with the flow of the electrical stimulation. With repeated contracting and relaxing, the blood flows in and out and the blood circulation is improved. TENS devices provide drugfree pain relief for sore muscles and joints. Wireless TENS devices offer convenience, flexibility and mobility, and dual-channel TENS devices target two different pain areas at the same time. Heat TENS devices combine soothing heat with electrotherapy for pain relief. The supporting Omron mobile app and rechargeable batteries make TENS relief portable for busy people with active lives, as well as giving flexibility for everyday use at home. • For more information visit OmronHealthcare.com/golf-pain
