TENS Units

If you are suffering from chronic pain, a TENS unit could be the perfect solution. TENS units deliver electrical impulses at a low frequency to manage pain without the use of drugs or topical ointments. The unit works for mild or severe pain management and can be used continually.

TENS refers to Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation, which sends stimulating pulses across the surface of the skin and along nerve strands to treat nerve related pain conditions. These pulses work to prevent pain signals from reaching the brain to help manage acute or chronic pain conditions. The TENS unit also encourages the body to send out higher levels of endorphins to begin naturally managing pain.


The TENS unit is a small box attached to wires that end on two sticky pads called electrodes. The shock from a TENS unit is not alarming or painful; it simply releases a light stimulus at a low frequency. More like a pleasant vibration, the impulse is normally found to be relieving to those who are suffering from chronic pain. After continued use, the body starts to receive the impulses sent out by the unit and pain signals are cut off from the brain. In turn, natural endorphins are released which promote healing – all without the use of medicines or procedures at the doctor’s office.


TENS units are most commonly used on the neck, lower back and legs, but can be used anywhere on the body to provide relief. TENS units are used to treat sciatica, post-operation regions of the body, sports injuries and more.

The TENS unit is a great option for those who prefer a more natural method of pain management and for those who have tried many other pain relief options with no relief.
