Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is a non-invasive, drug-free method of controlling pain. Tiny electrical impulses are sent through the skin, reaching cutaneous nerves, resulting in altered perception of pain. In most patients, TENS is effective for reducing or even eliminating pain, thus allowing for return to normal activity. TENS machines are used for the symptomatic relief and management of chronic pain, adjunctive treatment for post surgical pain or acute pain following injury.
