What is menstrual pain?

A few days before and/or at the beginning of the menstrual period, menstrual pain (dysmenorrhea) may appear. It is pain that lasts one to three days and manifests itself as cramps in the lower abdomen, which extend to the lumbar region. Primary dysmenorrhea is when the pain associated with menstruation is not caused by any underlying gynecological disorder.

More than half of women experience moderate to severe pain that affects their quality of life (Burnette MA. Antao V., Black A. Feldman K., Grenville A, et al. Prevalence of primary dysmenorrhea in Canada. Journal of obstetrics and gynecology Canada 27: 765-770).

What is endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a benign chronic disease that is quite common in women due to the abnormal presence of the mucous membrane that lines the inside of the uterus on the surrounding organs. It can lead to a decrease in fertility and is responsible for menstrual pain that can be very intense with a significant impact on daily life.

What is the role of electrotherapy?

Also known as TENS (Transcutaneous Neurostimulation), electrotherapy is a method that uses a low-voltage electrical current that specifically stimulates non-noceptive nerve fibers. It provides non-drugs pain relief. It is a method that is used on a daily basis in pain centers.

Thanks to an electric current transmitted by electrodes, the pain is attenuated by two actions:

  • Immediate: the reduction of pain transmission to the spinal cord, in other words: “gate” control effect
  • Lasting: increase in the secretion of endorphins, natural painkilling hormones secreted by the brain.

Electrotherapy treatment provides quick and lasting relief from chronic pelvic (lower abdominal) pain such as endometriosis and primary dysmenorrhea.
