TENS

WHAT IS TENS?

T.E.N.S. stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation. TENS is a drug-free alternative

for managing pain. For the past twenty years, doctors have been prescribing TENS as an

effective way to relieve pain. It is FDA approved, and can be used for physlotherapy and

rehabilitation.

HOW DOES TENS WORK?

TENS was designed to relieve pain by sending gentle nerve impulses through the skin to the

nerves. This suppresses pain by blocking the pain signals before they can reach the brain. TENS

sends these gentle impulses through lead wires that are connected to electrodes. These electrodes

are placed at appropriate sights on the body. TENS is an excellent, non-drug alternative for

chronic pain such as lower-back ache and arthritis.

WHAT IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO USE A TENS?

To achieve the best results of TENS therapy, it is important to remember that TENS merely

activates the body’s own pain-fighting mechanism. Placing electrodes directly over or around the

painful area delivers pain-blocking current to the nerves leading to that area. If you are having

difficulty getting the pain relief you are looking for from your tens unit- then you are almost

certainly not using it correctly. Make sure the electrodes are firmly in place at all times, and give

the unit a good trial because the longer you have had your pain the longer it may take to reduce it

and the more treatments it may need.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR THE TENS TREATMENT TO PRODUCE

RESULTS?

In most cases, studies show that it takes roughly 30 minutes for TENS treatment to begin to

relieve pain. Some patients find hours of pain relief from short 30-60 minute sessions.

DOES TENS TREATMENT HAVE ANY RISKS OR SIDE EFFECTS?

Unlike surgery or prescription drugs, TENS is virtually risk free from injury , side effects or

addiction. The electrical current delivered by the electrodes only penetrates the skin to the level

of the nerve fibers. This poses no danger to individuals.
