Top Applications for Tens Therapy


Tiny electrical impulse administered in a therapy called TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) might be the answer to pain management for some people.


How Does It Work?

It is proposed that the electrical impulse interrupts the pain messages that the nervous system sends to the brain. Electricity blocks the pain receptor's activity. If the brain doesn’t get the messages from the pain area of the body, you will not feel the pain.
