TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator)

For what ailments is TENS used?
  • TENS is effectively used to treat all types of chronic and acute pain. Just about anything for which you would take an aspirin, Tylenol, or any other pain medication can probably be effectively relieved with a TENS unit.
How does it work?
  • The TENS stimulator is a battery-powered device which transmits an electrical impulse through lead wires and surface electrodes to underlying nerves. The stimulator converts the direct current of the battery into pulses of stimulation. The current travels through electrodes and into the skin stimulating specific nerve pathways to produce a tingling or massaging sensation that reduces the perception of pain.
  • When used as directed; TENS is a safe, non-invasive, drug-free method of pain management. It is used to offer a better quality of life for people with pain.
