TENS Gout Treatment

The first records of medical electro-stimulation,

and this was for gout, came from Rome.

In 153 AD, the Roman physician Scribonius Largus instructing Gout Patients to stand on an electric ray

for the treatment of gout.

TENS Gout Therapy

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, "TENS"

uses small, pulsed, electric currents, penetrating through the skin,

to activate nerves for therapeutic reasons.

Treating Gout Pain with TENS

TENS is applied for the relief of various types of pain,

including Gouty Arthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Osteoarthritis.

It is important to start the therapy, stimulated the synovial membrane of a specific joint, at the beginning of an attack.

In one treatment, we can obtain a decrease in; 

  • Intra-articular synovial fluid pressure

  • Local leukocyte count = inflammation

We especially like TENS Therapy due to its ability to stimulate local circulation, by periodically activating muscles and causing:

  • Stimulating the lymphatic system, pumping out Uric Acid

  • Stimulating fresh blood flow, helping to Dissolve Uric Acid Crystals

  • Propulsion of, mobilizing Uric Acid micro-deposits
