TENS – TRANSCUTANEOUS ELECTRICAL NERVE STIMULATION
Description of methodsTENS is used for both acute and long-term pain conditions, particularly when the pain originates in the joints, skeleton, muscles, skin, viscera or the nervous system – both nociceptive and neurogenic pain. The method has also proven to relieve pain and improve the healing of wounds in patients with peripheral circulation disorders, and is effective in treating nausea. TENS may be sufficient as the only treatment form, but it is also a valuable complement to other pharmacological and/or physical treatments. TENS can be combined with any other treatment form, from drugs to acupuncture.
