Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (Tens) Therapy


Relieve Pain with Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) Therapy

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a pain relief therapy. It uses a low-voltage electrical current to block pain or change your perception. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) uses low-voltage electrical currents to relieve pain. A TENS unit is a small device that delivers the current at or near your nerves to block or change your pain perception. Healthcare providers use TENS to treat various conditions, including osteoarthritis, tendinitis and fibromyalgia.

At Pain Free India Physiotherapy, we leverage TENS therapy to relieve acute and chronic pain arising from sports injuries, arthritis, headaches, postsurgical pain and complex regional pain syndrome.

How Does TENS Therapy Work?

TENS therapy involves placing electrode pads connected to a compact, battery-powered unit over painful areas. Mild electrical impulses transmitted through these pads stimulate nerve fibres, which modify brain pain signals.

At Pain Free India Physiotherapy, TENS therapy’s pain relief works through various mechanisms. Listed below are some notable benefits of TENS Therapy.

  • It increases endorphin release 
  • It helps to reduce inflammation 
  • Alter pain gate mechanisms 
  • Improving blood circulation
  • It may reduce medication dosages in some people. (Always talk to your healthcare provider before changing your medications.)

We customise the stimulation parameters like intensity, frequency and duration based on patient feedback for optimal pain relief.
