TENS for Pain Management

TENS for Pain Management

What is a TENS Unit?

It's a device that sends electrical pulses to your body through sticky pads.

Although it sounds like magic, it's not.

A transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) unit is the most common form of electrotherapy for managing various types of acute and chronic pain. TENS units are small, battery-powered devices that administer mild shocks through sticky tens unit pads (also called electrodes) that connect to the skin. These electrodes connect to the TENS unit through lead wires. However, wireless TENS units have become popular.

What does a TENS Unit do?

TENS units help relieve pain.

TENS units send electrical pulses to the skin to stimulate the body's nerves. The TENS unit relieves pain through two methods, pain gating and the release of endorphins.

In short, it helps you relieve pain without the use of or in unison with pain medication.
