5 Ways The Pain Therapy System Pro Helps Arthritis Sufferers Manage Pain

February 13, 2020 in Arthritis

A Background on Arthritis

There are many different types of Arthritis, each with its own unique challenges. That said, many types share common symptoms that include joint pain, stiffness and swelling, decreased range of motion and fatigue. Because arthritis pain can occur in multiple joints in the body, it's often a challenge for arthritis sufferers to get through even the most simple of day-to-day routines. 

Although arthritis cannot be cured instantaneously by any one method, there are many non-invasive, drug-free ways to help target and relieve the associated pain and discomfort.  With its TENS and EMS therapy, DR-HO’S Pain Therapy System Pro can help you can manage pain from the comfort of home in as little as 20 minutes, without the use of drugs. 

What is DR-HO’S Pain Therapy System Pro?

DR-HO’S Pain Therapy System Pro is a state-of-the-art TENS machine that is used to help you relieve pain, relax your muscles, improve circulation and ease inflammation. The next generation of DR-HO’S bestselling Pain Therapy System, the Pro uses TENS, EMS, as well as AMP technology, to provide 24 different types of safe, therapeutic, pain-relieving electrical stimulation to the areas on the body that need it most. 

Arthritis Sufferers

What is TENS?

TENS Therapy is a safe, gentle form of electrical stimulation. When placing the multi-gel pads on any pain-afflicted area on the body, this stimulation floods the nervous system and overrides pain signals from registering in the brain. 

What is EMS?

EMS Therapy soothes and relieves tense muscles by helping them contract and release through the use of safe electrical pulses. More importantly, for joint pain, EMS helps to stimulate blood circulation allowing oxygen and other essential nutrients to circulate to inflamed joints and pain-afflicted areas. 

What is AMP Technology?

Most TENS machines only use one type of stimulation. Over time, the body will adapt to the stimulation, resulting in the therapy losing its effectiveness. AMP (Auto-Modulating Pulse) technology differs from a regular TENS unit as it uses wave patterns and frequencies that change automatically to prevent the body from adapting to the therapy. This is the main difference between DR-HO’S TENS products and similar devices on the market.

1. TENS Therapy Overrides Pain Signals in the Brain  

Ultimately, pain is a sensation or a signal that's transmitted by the nerves in various parts of the body and registered in our brains. But what if this signal had a harder time getting through? This is is the basis of TENS therapy. Through the use of electrical stimulation, it controls the way the brain processes pain signals. DR-HO'S Pain Therapy System Pro provides powerful stimulation that distracts the nervous system and overrides sensations of pain and discomfort so familiar to those with arthritis.

When you break it down, TENS therapy stands for:

  1. Transcutaneous – impulses are sent through the skin
  2. Electrical – the impulses are small electrical charges generated through electrodes
  3. Nerve – these impulses are sent to and from the brain through the nerves, which also send pain signals
  4. Stimulation – the impulses work by stimulating nerves in the right way, to block pain signals.

Additionally, TENS stimulation can help the body release natural pain-relieving hormones like endorphins. With regular use, TENS therapy can provide arthritis sufferers with effective, day-to-day pain relief.


2. DR-HO’S Pain Therapy System Pro Helps Target Joint Pain

As arthritis sufferers know, joint pain is not always subjected to a specific joint or area on the body. It can affect the joints themselves, the tissues that surround the joint, as well as other connective tissue. 

Because you can experience joint pain in one or more areas on the body, it’s important to use a pain-relief system that has the ability to target all different areas. The Pain Therapy System Pro comes with 8 Regular Body Pads and 2 Large Body Pads. This allows you to target small or large painful areas on the body. As well, if you are feeling pain in two separate areas on the body, the Pain Therapy System Pro has two different ports for two different pads where you can customize the settings with two different stimulations in order to target each pain-afflicted area properly.

You can refer to DR-HO'S placement guide for chronic pain to ensure you are placing the pads in the correct areas.

3. The Pain Therapy System Pro Can Improve Circulation to Painful Joints & Tense Muscles

Inflammation in the joints can be an everyday reality for rheumatoid arthritis sufferers. It's uncomfortable, painful and it severely limits mobility. With proper blood flow, circulation and oxygenation, the body is able to circulate nutrients to the damaged, inflamed joints and tissues to help ease pain more effectively. That’s why for arthritis sufferers, proper circulation is extremely important for pain management

The Pain Therapy System Pro's stimulation activates muscles and joints, mimicking physical activity. It rhythmically expands and contracts the muscles to promote better blood and oxygen flow to the affected joints. In addition to oxygen and nutrients, stimulating the joint in this way encourages fluid circulation which lubricates the joint, allowing it to move more smoothly.

4. EMS Massages Tense Areas to Reduce Stress for Arthritis Sufferers 

Pain relief benefits aside, massage therapy is a great way to relax and reduce stress. With stress, your body is more susceptible to tension. And as arthritis sufferers know, tense muscles and joints can often result in more pain and reduced range of motion. 

The Pain Therapy System Pro can help relieve tension and stiffness in the body by providing massaging stimulation that feels great. And as we mentioned earlier, TENS therapy also contributes to the production of "feel-good" chemicals like endorphins, which help relieve pain and ease physical discomfort naturally. You can manage your pain in your own way by choosing from 24 different types of therapeutic stimulation and varying intensities that works best for you. 


5. DR-HO’S Pain Therapy System Pro Can Help With Mobility and Activity

The idea of working out while in pain may be the last thing on your list, but it has been proven that physical activity is one of the most important factors in reducing arthritis pain. Not only does consistent physical activity help with stiffness in the joints, but regular activity can help you manage/and or lose weight relieving pressure on the joints. 

You can use DR-HO'S Pain Therapy System Pro before and after a workout to help ease your pain. You can use six different massage modes to help reduce muscle tension and soreness, relax the muscles and allow for full-body recovery preparing you for your next workout. Now, this doesn’t mean go run a marathon but instead focus on low-intensity, arthritis specific exercises. What's more, TENS works best in conjunction with physical activity.1
