A Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is a small, pocket-sized device consisting of cables that attach to electrodes, and then the electrodes attach to the area of pain. That area then receives little shocks of electricity. This results in muscle relaxation through the focus on a sensation other than pain. It’s also called electrical stimulation therapy.
This therapy can be beneficial not only to relieve muscle tension and pain, but because it does’t interfere with medications or create an “out of it” feeling. It can also be easily transported to work or on vacation.
