What is TENS and why use one?
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.
