TENS Therapy in Clearwater

Reduce Pain with Electrical Stimulation

TENS sends low voltage currents to stimulate the nerves in the affected area which often helps patients relieve pain.

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) Therapy is the most common form of electrical stimulation used for pain management. TENS is a safe, non-invasive pain management therapy often paired with other non-invasive treatments. It is also used to aid in healing after surgical treatments and fractures.

The TENS machine generates a gentle electric current that is delivered through small electrodes that attach to your skin. This current helps to reduce pain by stimulating the local nerves and sensory fibers, much like rubbing your knee after bumping it on the corner of the coffee table.

The rubbing helps to override the pain sensation, providing relief. Essentially, electrical stimulation follows the same idea, exciting the nerves to alleviate pain and encouraging the production of endorphins, which are natural pain relievers produced by the body.
