What is TENS and why use one?

Posted on May 3, 2012 by Core Products There have been 0 comments

The first thing you need to know is that TENS stands for (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation). A TENS device uses electrical current to stimulate nerves for therapeutic purposes. It is also called Electro Therapy.

TENS is non-invasive nerve stimulation that is intended to treat both chronic and acute pain. An easy way to describe what a TENS unit does is, they mask pain signals using electrical current, which offers a period of time after use, where pain is minimized.

Wikipedia has a good article on TENS units. Click here to read it.
