|What is a TENS unit?
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) units painlessly send electrical impulses through the skin to nerve centers in the body. Mild, continuous pulses of energy sent by the TENS unit can block pain signals normally sent to the brain, thereby interrupting the brain's awareness of pain. FDA approved TENS units are safe, non-invasive, drug-free, and non-addictive.
Additionally, studies show that low frequency, short bursts of electrical activity also stimulate the body to release its own natural pain relief called endorphins. These two effects combined mean that TENS units can reduce pain significantly. Most people feel no side effects from using a TENS unit and can reduce their need for pain medication.
