We at TENSSource recognize the physician-patient relationship is personal and critically important in determining the proper diagnosis and subsequent best treatment of your health condition. TENSSource encourages you to be as candid and as detailed as possible with your doctor during your visit. The following questions are offered as a helpful guideline in this effort.
Generally, there are two well known and accepted types of brace support options. First, those designed to support the large weight-bearing, postural musculoskeletal groups such as the neck and back. Second, those intended for the stabilization and flexibility demands of the numerous joints of the body. Both of these types of braces are typically prescribed to provide healing support to an injured or post surgical area, or to protect against injury potentially inherent in certain strenuous physical sporting activities.
Swelling can cause pain and loss of motion, which can limit the use of the muscles. Early intervention with NMES devices can increase circulation. Blood flow increases by bringing nutrient-rich blood to the injured area. This increases the range of motion to the injured area and decreases the amount of spasms experienced.
Get your muscle fibers working again as soon as possible; as indicated by your healthcare professional. After traumatic injury or surgery, it’s important your muscles regain strength and tone to allow for faster recovery. Neuromuscular Electrotherapy Stimulation (NMES) is a specific gentle and effective type of electrical stimulation whose benefits are two-fold: first, pain control and second, muscle stimulation, which cause muscle fibers to strengthen by contraction.
Simply stated, pain is a “beneficial” adverse, sensory signal transmitted by your body’s nervous system in an attempt to alert your body to an injury or condition. The purpose of the pain stimulus is to prevent further insult to the injured area by causing restriction of motion; inflammation. This pain sensation may be perceived as chronic and debilitating in nature, ultimately, resulting in the inability to perform many of your essential daily activities.

Tampa, FL, October 15, 2014: Healthcare providers across the nation share the frustration of dealing with insurance carriers on coverage and claims issues. Inconsistent application or interpretation of Medicare DMERC guidelines, Milliman USA Care guidelines or HCSC Medical Policies lead to coverage of a patient’s prescribed therapies in one instance by one carrier and denial of the identical claim by another. Sometimes because of a factual gap in the documentation the same carrier will treat what seem to be identical patients differently. All to the detriment of patient care.
