Electric Stimulation Therapy

What is it?

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a therapy that uses low voltage electrical current to provide pain relief. A TENS unit consists of a battery-powered device that delivers electrical impulses through electrodes placed on the surface of your skin. The electrodes are placed at or near nerves where the pain is located or at trigger points. Electrical stimulation has a variety of benefits, including:

Reduce, eliminate, and/or control pain (both acute and chronic)
Increase local circulation
Decrease swelling
Improve range of motion
Reduce muscle spasm
Improve motor coordination
Provide biofeedback (aka improve body awareness)
Provide neuromuscular re-education

How does it work?

A standard electrical stimulation device utilizes self-adhesive electrodes placed around the target treatment area on the body. The electrodes are then connected via wire leads to the unit, through which electricity can pass and ultimately interact with sensory and/or motor nerves.

Electrical stimulation contains a variety of different modes to stimulate the nerves in different ways. These modes all consist of different currents, and the current you are prescribed will be dependent upon the nature of your condition and the severity of it.
