Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) devices are used for the symptomatic relief
and management of chronic (long-term) intractable pain and/or as an adjunctive treatment in the
management of post-surgical and post-traumatic acute pain.

How does it work?
TENS or Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation relieves pain by sending small electrical impulses through the skin to the underlying peripheral nerves. TENS is thought to work in two different ways:
1) “High frequency,” continues, mild, electrical activity may block the pain signal to the brain. Brain Cells perceive pain. If the pain signal does not get through to the brain, the pain is not “felt.”
2) “Low frequency,” or short bursts of mild electrical activity, may stimulate the body’s own natural pain-control mechanism by releasing beta-endorphins. Whatever theory is applied, TENS has been proven useful in pain management for many patients. Treatment outcome may be influenced by the patient’s psychological state and by the use of drugs.
