TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) are used for nerve related pain conditions, acute as well as chronic conditions. The unit works by sending pulses across the surface of the skin and along the nerve strands. These pulses help to prevent pain signals from reaching the brain. The pulses also assist your body in producing higher levels of endorphins, which are your bodies own natural painkillers.
