1. TENS published texts

TENS therapy has now been researched for more than 45 years. There are many, many sources of TENS clinical evidence and evaluations of efficacy. The best all-round published resource is a text book authored by Mark I Johnson, Professor of Pain and Analgesia at Leeds Metropolitan University, UK. Details are:

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) - Research to support clinical practice; Oxford University Press; 2014 

British Medical Association Book Awards Finalist

In part, the BMA judges review read:

"This is all anyone could wish for if they had an interest in TENS clinical research. It is comprehensive, concise and a good summary of a very wide range of confusing literature".
