A transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) unit uses a low voltage electric current to relieve pain in problem areas, most commonly chronic back pain. The device sends a current through the patient’s nerve fibers where they experience the most pain, creating a tingling, numbing sensation instead.
Highlights of a portable TENS unit:
- Relieves chronic back pain
- Reduces inflammation
- Retrains damaged nerves for long-term wellness
- Provides easy-to-use, portable relief
- Manages pain without the risk of opiate addiction and other side effects of long-term medicine use
