Pain Management > Tens Units, Stimulators

TENS Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation, or “TENS,” units are unique medical devices designed to help relieve both acute and chronic pain. These handy devices deliver electrical currents to designated points on the body in order to stimulate nerves for pain relief and therapeutic purposes. The TENS machine itself is a small, electronic device that delivers current through electrodes placed on the skin. Unlike systemic drugs, which can affect the entire body, electrotherapy targets pain exactly where it occurs. Plus, The intensity, duration, frequency per second and modulation of these impulses can be adjusted through a simple button or knob.
