Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is the use of electric current produced by a device to stimulate the nerves for therapeutic purposes. TENS devices are used as a non-invasive nerve stimulation intended to reduce both acute and chronic pain, particularly musculoskeletal pain.
Chiropractors, physical therapists, and Naturopath use them in their office. They are also pretty cheap and easy to use so many people who suffer from chronic pain learn how to use them at home. One positive thing about Tens Units are they are very affordable and easy to use.
