What is transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) therapy?


Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) therapy involves the use of low-voltage electric currents to treat pain. Electrodes or mediums for electricity to travel to the body, placed on the body at the site of pain deliver electricity that travels through the nerve fibers. The electric currents block the pain receptors from being sent from the nerves to the brain. 


TENS therapy can be used to treat both chronic (long lasting) and acute (short-term) pain.
The most common conditions that TENS therapy is used to treat are:

  • Osteoporosis-related joint, bone, or muscle problems

  • Fibromyalgia-related joint, bone, or muscle problems

  • Tendinitis (muscle tissue inflammation)

  • Bursitis (inflammation of the fluid-filled pads that cushion the joints)

  • Neck pain

  • Labor pain

  • Cancer pain







One of the most common forms of electrical stimulation used for pain management is transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) therapy, which provides short-term pain relief. Electrical nerve stimulation and electrothermal therapy are used to relieve pain associated with various chronic conditions.


EMS Electric Muscle Stimulator is used to relieve pain, reduce spasms and edema, tonify weak muscles and assist the healing process. It is known to ease muscle tension, stiffness in joints or back areas, and known for increasing motion restricted from disuse or atrophy, electronic muscle stimulation can also increase local blood circulation.


EMS Units run at intensities from 1 to 130 Mega Hertz. Where a TENS units are designed to help relieve certain types of chronic and acute pain by stimulating the nervous tissue, an EMS unit is designed to treat more of the muscle area than the nerves. Reducing swelling and muscle inflation.
