TENS is physical therapy

TENS means Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation. It is a drug-free physical therapy, within the category: electro therapy / neurostimulation therapy.

In a clinical setting, TENS therapy is used by physiotherapists, pain management specialists, chiropractors, acupuncturists and massage therapists. However, TENS therapy can also be managed by the patient, as part of their self-managed pain relief or injury recovery program.

With an ActivLife micro TENS machine, the therapy can be used daily, at home or on the move, and for as long as needed.
