TENS

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a therapy that uses low-voltage electrical current for pain relief. 

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is the use of electric current produced by a device to excite the nerves for therapeutic constancies. We will connect the TENS unit to the skin using two or more electrodes. We usually use TENS for nerve related to acute and chronic pain conditions. TENS machines serve by sending stimulating pulses across the surface of the skin and along the nerve strands. The exciting pulses help prevent pain signals from reaching the brain.

TENS devices also further stimulate your body to engender higher levels of its own natural painkillers, known as Endorphins. It is a technique of intermodulation that affects the sensory pathway by changing the impulse, which leads to relief of pain.

What is TENS Used for?

People use TENS to relieve pain for several different types of illnesses and conditions. They use it most often to treat muscle, joint, or bone problems that occur with illnesses such as osteoarthritis or fibromyalgia, or for conditions such as low back pain, neck pain, tendinitis, or bursitis. People have also used TENS to treat sudden (acute) pain, such as labour pain, and long-lasting (chronic) pain, such as cancer pain.
