Tens Unit for pain

TENS  
 
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) provides yet another form of counter-stimulation and has been used for several years in the management of postoperative and cancer pain. It has been postulated that TENS helps to relieve pain by stimulating the release of endorphins. The TENS equipment consists of a small, battery driven pulse generator, connected to one or two pairs of electrodes which are attached to the skin with adhesive tape. When it is turned on, the TENS machine causes a tingling sensation underneath the electrodes - the strength of which can be adjusted at the generator controls
