This method of treatment which is carried out by creating vacuum on suction dates back to Hippocrates (460-377B.C). While pondering through Unani classical literature, one can see the enormous number of indications of Hijamah encompassing inflammatory conditions and painful conditions like arthritis and sciatica. This therapy entered the Europe through Spain when the Muslim physicians and their scientific literature were the primary sources of medical sciences.

- Trans-cutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator (TENS)

What is TENS?
Trans-cutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is a therapy that uses electrical current delivered through electrodes to the skin for pain relief. Electrical stimulation of the nerves may encourage the body to produce natural painkillers called endorphin, which may block the perception of pain.

TENS is done with a small, battery-powered machine about the size of a pocket radio. Usually two electrodes, wires that conduct electrical current, are connected from the machine to the skin. The electrodes are often placed on the area of pain or at a pressure point, creating a circuit of electrical impulses that travels along nerve fibers.

The machine can be set for different wavelength frequency, such as a steady flow of electrical current or a burst of electrical current, and for intensity of electrical current. These settings are usually determined by your healthcare practitioner.

What is TENS used for?
TENS is used to relieve pain for several different types of innlesses and conditions. It is used most often to treat muscle, joint, or bone problems that occur with illnesses such as osterarthrithis or fibromyalgia, or for conditions such as low back pain, neck pain, tendinitis, or bursitis. TENS has also been used to treat sudden (acute) pain, such as labour pain, and long-lasting (chronic) pain, such as cancer pain.
