PEMF vs. TENS
Osteoarthritic Knee Pain
It is a well-known fact that athletes, especially those who’ve had a history of knee injury, have an early onset and higher prevalence of osteoarthritis as compared to the average person the same age. Conventional treatment for knee osteoarthritis includes anti-inflammatory medications including cortisone injections, knee braces, ice, and rest. All of which usually lead to further knee deterioration.
What is Pemf?
Pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy is a new approach to pain management that uses electromagnetic fields to create a pulsing, moving energy to assist in regulating your cells. These energy waves could change the way your body copes with pain. It is commonly used in the treatment of areas of the body that won’t heal. This includes fractures that won’t heal as well as damaged ligaments and tendons.
What is Tens?
Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a therapy that uses low-voltage electrical current for pain relief.
You do TENS with a small, battery-powered machine about the size of a pocket radio. Usually, you connect two electrodes (wires that conduct electrical current) from the machine to your skin.
Which is best for you?
It’s incredibly important that you know which one you are better equipped to handle. There are several different ways with which you can deal with osteoarthritic knee pain, and PEMF has a proven track record for you to get over the knee pain.
