Physiotherapist Using a TENS Machine to Relieve Pain

TENS Machine

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation, or TENS, is a commonly used treatment to reduce pain from many neuromusculoskeletal conditions. It is able to reduce pain for many musculoskeletal conditions through transmitting a small, pain-free electrical current through tissues. When TENS is applied, a physiotherapist may place small pads near the affected area and instruct you on the appropriate protocol.
