Lloydspharmacy TENS Machine Digital Pain Reliever

SKU: Lloydspharmacy Tens Machine-10551-218212489-1

Over half of us suffer from chronic pain such as back or joint pain. Whether you have one of these conditions, or just suffer from intermittent pain, you know it can stop you doing even the simplest of things.

What if there was a safe, affordable and effective form of pain relief for a range of different complaints which you could use alongside over the counter or prescription pain relief medication? The Lloydspharmacy TENS machine delivers small, painless electrical pulses to the body via electrodes placed on the skin. This blocks the way pain signals are sent to the brain and stimulates the body to produce its own pain relieving chemicals called endorphins.

TENS is a highly effective treatment for pain. It is used worldwide and recommended by sports coaches, physiotherapy departments, pain clinics, doctors and other medical practitioners. A TENS unit will ease pain, and should result in a decrease of drug intake! For many the relief is dramatic.

Pain - The Facts:
1 in 7 people in the UK suffer from chronic pain.
TENS stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation
TENS has been around since 2500 BC there are pictures of electric fish being used

How does TENS work?
Pads are placed on or near the area of pain. Soothing pulses are sent via the pads through the skin and along the nerve fibres. The pulses (controlled by the user at all times) suppress pain signals to the brain. TENS also encourages the body to produce higher levels of its own natural pain killing chemicals called Endorphins and Encephalins

Who will TENS work for?
TENS is a highly effective treatment for pain. It is used worldwide and recommended by sports coaches, physiotherapy departments, pain clinics, doctors and other medical practitioners. A TENS unit will ease pain, and should result in a decrease of drug intake! For many the relief is dramatic.

Numerous painful medical conditions can be eased with our TENS Machine including:
Rheumatoid and Osteo-arthritis, Phantom Limb Pain, Sports Injuries, Sciatica, Aching Joints, Muscular Pain Whiplash and Neck Injury, Back pain, Menstrual Pain, and Shingles.

Remember - pain is the body's means of warning that something is amiss. Before using any TENS unit, you should establish the source and cause of your pain.

nice find

pricedrop tv , sky channel 635 often has these for under a tenner......

I have a TENS device to treat an occasionaly recurring whiplash injury and I find it effective, certainly more so than medication.

That said, my niece finds it intolerable to use as she finds the sensation odd. You would be wise to use rechargeable batteries too.

On balance - a bargain.

Don't you have to add huge postage costs for pricedrop????
#4
I got one last year from Lloyd's when they were £9.99. Been nothing short of fantastic, bought an extra one as a standby.....worth every penny!!
#5
Not really what you want to use long term for a bad back. Consider first seeing your GP to discuss what can be done long term to help your back and use this machine for short term care.
#6
Anyone know what kind of batteries this takes?

I had one for contraction pain with both births and I thought it was great :)

It takes 2 x AAA bateries.

I use one of these for my back and shoulders it definatly help but i find the effect only lasts an hour or two. I tend to use mine mostly before bed as i find my back tend to keep me awake sometimes.

My wife was advised to get a TENS machine for labour pain relief during her pregnancy by her midwife. Paid about £40 to hire one from Boots for a month. Not too sure why this can't be used during pregnancy,

Bought one from Lloyds last year for £9.99, very effective for lower back pain relief.
#13
Got this for my mum. Voted hot.
#14
got one of the ones from pricedrop (well my mum did) for when I was pregnant with AM. It was rubbish. However the hosp gave me one for my magical dislocating knees and it really is the dogs bits. Much 'stronger' better attachments I can't recomend a good TENS machine highly enough
#15
Last year I bought one of these exact same machines for my mum who hurt her lower back in nursing some 20 yrs ago and couldn't work again. At this price it was worth a gamble - well, this was 6 months ago & I have been told that it's the best present I've ever bought her and it's something she would never have bought or tried herself.
The painkilling effects last shorter for some people but for my mum it takes away the debilitating back pain for 12 hours at a time and has relieved her from a lot of unnecessary pain.
I'm fit and pain free but I've tried the thing too - a weird (not unpleasant) sensation like tickly pins & needles or a 'kneading' effect on the area you put the pads (dependent upon the preset program). I dare you not to laugh the first time used!
Again, I can't recommend them highly enough. Say goodbye to tablets for those aches & pains - Go out and buy one of these for someone you love. :thumbsup:
#16
Bought one this week. Doesn't cure the pain i'm having totally but does relax the pain and make it tolerable for a while. Well worth the money.
#17
Sorry had to vote cold as these were a bargain when they were at £9.99 but not £14.99 also they charge £3.95 P+P so total price comes to £18.94
#18
Be careful not to get it mixed up with an Ipod! I'm not sure what a Tens machine on each ear would do, although am sure it would sound better than R'n'B.

Come to think of it, even if it melted your brain it would be better than listening to R'n'B.
#19
Wife got one last month for lower back pain, rates it highly, £14.99 instore it was.
#20
I bought one of these a couple of years ago and it works much better than painkilling drugs.

Be warned though - don't attempt to use if you have a Pacemaker!

That's right- it can't be used in pregnancy as it can cause muscle spasm, and it can't be used in labour. Your contractions start a long time before labour starts and you can use the machine during this time, however when you start pushing (labouring) your midwife will take it off you.
#22
Thanks for posting, just off to buy and try one for myself.
#23
thanks - just been and bought one.

Heat added :thumbsup:
#24
After reading all the threads giving feed back on this, seriously considering getting one for myself now.

Thanks OP :thumbsup:

After reading so many good reviews I've just ordered one. Thanks OP, heat and rep added.

Just a little advice...I'm a physio and do use TENS with people who have chronic LBP. Not sure if this machine is any good but I just wanted to say that if you're considering getting this I would advise that you go and see a physio first (possibly a GP but they don't always make the right diagnosis, good for referrals though). It's better to make sure you don't have any underlying problems as a TENS machine can just mask the pain that the body produces to tell us there is something wrong.
#27
Picked one of these up at lunchtime today and have it attached as I type (I got over concerns the electricity might shoot out of my fingertips and short the computer... ;) )

I've suffered chronic lower back pain for the last decade or so. The physio (after a GP referral) told me that all I needed was to get more exercise. (Or "any" exercise!)
Whilst I'm sure she's right, it's not always possible to get the exercise recommended. Or maybe I'm just very lazy. The general constant pain is fairly bad, though not debilitating. The week or two of pain when it "seizes" up - a couple of times a year - is much worse. And yet I don't do an hour's exercise a day to possibly save myself all that grief.
Yep - lazy sounds about right!

Fingers crossed this will help. I'm not expecting a cure to pain, but if it makes life easier then it gets a big thumbs up from me. And at £15 it's worth a punt!

I have had this exact one for a few months. It definately helps with my Chronic Lower back pain. I was skeptical too. I have it on right now in fact. Lets face it, it is not a miracle cure but it does help ease the pain. The sensation is a little strange so won't suit everyone. The batteries last for ages by the way.

Be warned I am on my third replacement. The first two had issues with the connection to the unit. It would only work if you wiggled it. The lady in the shop said quote "Oh they must have sent us another bad batch" So there has been problems before. Touch wood, this one is okay.
#29
just tried it out for the first time, its a little weird feeling dont know if its a phsycological thing or not but it does seem to help
#30
Got this for my wife last year for pain from slipped disc. We recently had a 23hr flight to Australia and she swears by it.....

Check out the price on replacement pads, I got a set half price when I got the unit £17.50 for both
