Aches in the muscles are very common. Almost everyone has occasionally had pain in their muscles. This kind of discomfort can be felt almost anywhere on the body because muscle tissue can be found in almost every area. However, there isn’t just one reason why muscles hurt or ache.
While overuse or injury are frequent causes of persistent discomfort, there are other scenarios that could apply. People who encounter muscle aches may frequently identify the source with ease. This is due to the fact that excessive stress, tension, or physical exertion causes the majority of cases of myalgia.
Muscle tension in one or more areas of the body, overuse of the muscle during exercise, injury from physically demanding labor or exercise, and neglecting warm-ups and cool-downs are some causes of pain.
Muscle aches can affect people of any age or gender. You might feel delayed-onset muscle soreness when you experiment with a new sport or change up your training regimen (DOMS). Six to twelve hours after working out, muscle aches may start to appear and might persist up to 48 hours. As the muscles grow stronger and repair, discomfort is experienced.
Natural ways that may provide relief from body pain
While taking painkillers may be a temporary solution for body discomfort, this solution has its limits, especially if you suffer this pain frequently. Here is the list of some natural methods.
- Salt water soak
- Warm compress
- Ice pack
Physiotherapy- a faster way to get rid of the pain
When you have long-term pain (also known as chronic pain) or an accident, physiotherapy is frequently one of your best options. It can help you feel better, move better, and become stronger.
In addition to helping to alleviate pain, physical therapy also helps to eliminate its cause. It searches for any stiffness or weak spots that can be causing stress to the painful areas. And it will use particular equipment to treat those areas in order to reduce discomfort and improve your mobility.
Physiotherapy by Tens machine: A modern method to treat your pain
A modest electrical current is used in the pain treatment technique known as transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS). TENS units operate by delivering tiny electrical impulses through electrodes that are attached to a person’s skin with adhesive pads. This overflow of electrical impulses impairs the nervous system’s capacity to communicate pain signals to the brain and spinal cord. The same electrical impulses also encourage the body to manufacture endorphins, which are organic painkillers.
A non-invasive technique for reducing pain is TENS. People who use TENS for pain treatment may be able to use fewer painkillers, some of which might be addictive or have unfavorable side effects.
TENS devices are also practical because they are discreet, portable, and compact. For constant access to pain relief throughout the day, people can carry a TENS unit in their pocket or clip it to their belt.

How does Tens 2.0 work?
Two hypotheses explain how the TENS unit operates. One is the “Gate Control Theory,” according to which the neural mechanism in the spinal cord that functions as a form of gate and aids in preventing the passage of pain signals to the brain is interfered with by electrical impulses. Another idea, known as The Endorphin Release, contends that electrical impulses cause the body to produce more endorphins, which act as the body’s natural painkillers and prevent pain signals from reaching the brain without causing any negative side effects.
How to use TENS 2.0?
Peel off the plastic & stick it to your affected body area.

Cautions when using a TENS 2.0 wireless machine
- Never use electrode pads on skin that has been injured or fractured.
- Never put electrode pads in your mouth, near your eyes, or over the front or side of your neck.
- Use not over places with decreased sensibility.
- Use away from water, such as in the shower or bathtub.
- Use not permitted when operating machinery or a vehicle.
Side-effects of TENS Therapy that you must know before use
TENS has minimal risks or side effects if the following precautions are followed:
- To ensure that utilizing a TENS machine is a safe option for you, speak with your doctor or physiotherapist.
- If you have a pacemaker or another implanted electrical device, avoid using a TENS machine. If you have epilepsy, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), heart issues, cancer, or skin that is numb, irritable, or fragile, you should ask your physiotherapist whether TENS is a safe alternative for your discomfort.
- TENS is generally safe to use throughout the first trimester of pregnancy, provided that it is not applied to the abdomen or lower back.
- When you remove the electrodes, your skin can become slightly red and irritated, but this should pass rapidly. After using TENS, it’s crucial to frequently check your skin to make sure it stays healthy.
