A small electrical device (think back to the days of the Walkman!) delivers electrical impulses across the skin. Lightweight versions not much bigger than a credit card are available these days. This can be clipped to your jeans or placed in your pocket.
Wires link the gadget to adhesive pad electrodes that are applied to the skin in the pain location. A modest, low-intensity electric charge can be transferred throughout the space as a result of this.
1/ Stimulating particular 'non-pain' nerve fibers at a high frequency to transmit signals to the brain that block other nerve signals delivering pain messages. High-frequency stimulation, often known as "conventional," is bearable for hours, but the pain relief it provides is only temporary.
2/ Lower frequencies trigger the release of endorphins, natural pain-relieving hormones – your own pain-management mechanism. Low-frequency stimulation, often known as "acupuncture-like stimulation," is more unpleasant and manageable for 20-30 minutes, but the pain relief it provides lasts longer.
