We offer a “cost free” program that is designed to place Digital TENS units in your office on consignment. This is a great way to help your patients with home therapy in between office visits. You will have these items on hand without having to buy, bill or collect on them yourself.
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is a treatment for pain that can be used for acute pain (e.g., during labor or after surgery) or for chronic pain (e.g., low back pain). It is a form of electrical energy sent in various waveforms to the nerves. When it is delivered through electrodes or patches placed on the skin, it is called transcutaneous (meaning through the skin) electrical nerve stimulation or TENS for short.
TENS is a noninvasive way to override or block signals from the nerves to the spinal cord and brain. Pain messages may be altered enough to provide temporary or even long-lasting pain relief. In addition to controlling pain, this type of electrical stimulation can also improve local circulation and reduce or eliminate muscle spasm.
