A TENS machine is a portable stimulation device that is commonly recommended to patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain. This device comes with different channels with electrodes for each channel. They can be placed anywhere in the body to treat localized pain in one or multiple areas simultaneously.

The TENS unit helps in pain control and reduction by blocking nerve signals in damaged body tissue. The reduction of pain may assist with range of motion and overall function of dysfunctional anatomical structures.

This device can be used at home or office at their own time. We can teach you how to use it and adjust its setting according to your condition or pain, and the progress being made in treatment.
