TENS Electrotherapy Devices for Home Use

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is one of the most common forms of pain management in this day and age. TENS devices use electrode pads to induce electrical impulses onto the nerves through the skin. This form of pain management falls under the Gate Control Theory. TENS uses low-voltage electrical currents to stimulate nerves. The constant […]

How Long Can I Use a TENS Machine For?

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a form of pain management that uses electrical currents to reduce pain. The Gate Control Theory of pain management supports this method. A TENS device employs electrode pads to transfer low-voltage electrical currents through the skin and into nerves. The constant electrical nerve stimulation on a painful site then […]

What is E Stim Therapy?

E Stim therapy is a form of pain management that uses transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS). A TENS machine is capable of reducing or negating pain via the Gate Control Theory. It employs low-voltage electrical impulses to stimulate nerves and block pain signals from reaching the brain. This stimulation, in turn, helps with the comfort of […]
