How To Use a TENS Machine for Carpal Tunnel

Are you dealing with the aches and pains of carpal tunnel? Maybe it’s time you give TENS therapy a try and see what all of the commotions around HiDow TENS & EMS therapy devices are! Using a TENS machine for carpal tunnel can be a great way to alleviate some of the pain and discomfort that comes from having carpal tunnel.

Can Carpal Tunnel Be Treated?

There are a few different types of carpal tunnel syndrome treatments, including surgical and non-surgical therapies and treatments. Additionally, there are preventative measures that you can take to avoid experiencing carpal tunnel. Traditional hot-cold therapies such as the use of heating pads, compression wrist wraps, and TENS therapy can help you keep the pain under control throughout the day. If the pain from carpal tunnel is too severe, a doctor may recommend open or endoscopic surgery to treat the pain.

Using a TENS Machine for Carpal Tunnel

Your body sends electrical pulses from nerve endings through your nervous system and up to pain receptors in the brain. TENS and EMS treatment work to manage pain and discomfort, such as the kind felt from carpal tunnel, because of how TENS and EMS disrupt pain signals. When a TENS device is activated, it sends vibrations and pulses up through the nervous system and mimics those pain signals. So TENS and EMS aren’t restricted to just treating carpal tunnel pains, but rather, they can work for any kind of muscle or joint pain that you experience.

Electrode Placement for Wrist and Hand Pains

When using a TENS/EMS device, it’s essential to place the electrode pads in the right position. HiDow Acu Gloves are perfect for targeting any pain on the wrist, hand, or fingers. With the AcuGloves, you simply slide the gloves on and connect them to your HiDow device, and there is no need for pad placement. If you are using traditional electrode pads, that is ok too! You will need at least 2 electrodes to get the full effect of the TENS therapy. Place one electrode on the center of the back of your hand. Place the other electrode pad on the forearm just below the wrist.
