Relieving Pain in Cancer Patients
By Nabta Team
Chronic pain can affect nearly half of cancer patients, and the reason could be the cancer itself or the treatment that the patient is undergoing for the cancer – be it chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery. One of the options of pain relief is the use of a TENS machine. TENS stands for Transcutaneous Electric Nerve Stimulation which is just a fancy way of saying that this machine is going to send tiny electric current through your skin. This best works when applied to the skin over the area where the pain is occurring. TENS has also been known to relieve period pain for people with endometriosis and fibroids.
