Transcutaneous electrical neuromuscular stimulation (TENS) provides a low-level electrical current to disrupt the normal pain perception pathways. It releases endorphins into the blood stream and cerebrospinal fluid to relieve pain and inflammation post-surgically or as an alternative to surgery.
Examples of Conditions that May Benefit from the use of TENS:
- Intervertebral disc disease
- Muscle spasms
- Lumbosacral disease or lower back pain
