TENS

Effective drug-free pain relief
with a Pulsar enables many patients to manage their chronic or acute pain without drugs and their associated side effects. Pulsar stimulates the body to enhance its own natural pain control mechanisms giving relief and control of chronic pains all over the body. It can also be used in acute conditions such as post operative pain, sports injuries and in the treatment of ischaemic ulcers. Pulsar TENS is non invasive, safe and easy to use with no lasting effects. It can be used on its own or as a complementary therapy to ‘pain killers’.

 

What people say about Pulsar
“I have had four spinal fractures due to Osteoporosis. On top of this I have also had a total hip replacement which further increased the strain on my back. Pulsar eliminates the pain whilst in use. I can now enjoy car outings and can use buses and taxis to get around. Pulsar for me has removed a lot of the mental fatigue associated with chronic pain”

“I purchased a dual channel Pulsar having first tried it on loan from my doctor. The support and advice of your Careline has been exceptionally helpful”

“Now after two and a half painful years I can gain relief at a turn of two controls, wonderful. I am annoyed with myself for not asking for the Pulsar Tens sooner”

TENS

Pain Suppression.
Pulsar TENS initially activates a pain suppression system that restricts the amount of pain signals reaching the brain. By reducing the number of signals reaching the brain, it is able to diminish the perceived levels of pain. This mechanism is often referred to as the ‘Gate Control Theory’ of pain.

 

Increasing your Endorphin level TENS encourages the body to increase its own production of natural opiate-like substances, called Endorphins, which again reduce the number of pain signals from reaching the brain. You can think of this mechanism as if it were raising your ‘Pain tolerance level’.
